Thread Name: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
Subject: RE: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
My good friend Rick has given you sage advice, Dear Friend Bonnie. The Reiter has already given you a treasure in the form of a lesson learned. For that you are in its debt. And because you had the wisdom to choose a quality instrument, it won't cost you anything near its worth.

For me, it came in the form of a mid 60's vintage Guild 12 string. The second I touched its strings, I knew it was over. And she reminds me every single day that I am not good enough for her, but if I keep trying she will respond..............hahahaha. And I feel kind of the same way about my old (relatively speaking) Seagull. Everytime I think about another six string, I find myself asking why? Seagull has a warmth and familiarity that I love. I am sure that I will find other instruments that speak to me. And I will know it when it happens. The same will happen to you, my friend.
