    Same as last time (buying and selling vintage guitars) except this time I'm mostly selling which has earned me a big pat on the head from the significant other :D

    Dam! doesn't it hurt to know you have the money but that guitar is gone now? or do you restrain from getting emotionally attached?

    It's a little like gambling without losing. I keep and play the guitars I become attached to and sell the others so that I can buy more guitars :)

    40 years of experience has given me a pretty good feel so I rarely end up buying anything I can't sell for a reasonable profit plus I can spot a fake from a 100 miles away which is essential because these days there are so many of them.

    By the way, I'm still searching for the holy grail, a '59 Les Paul if anyone has one going spare :D
