Thread Name: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
Subject: RE: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
I know what you are talking about, Bonnie, even though I am not a banjo picker--I have had the same problem with guitars--several years ago, I got paid a large amount of money that I had been owed for a long time, and I went out and bought the best archtop guitar I could find--it cost more money than I had ever spent on an instrument, but I figured I owed it to myself--

To make a long story short, I played it when I got it, once a week later, and it sat for about four years--One night we were having a party, and some idiot that I didn't even know pulled it out of the closet and spilled beer on it and in the case--no permanent damage, but I realized that I had a lot of money tied up in something that I never used--

It is gone now, and I have another good guitar, but still mostly play one I bought at a yardsale--
