Oh My God.
Does anyone else lose hours looking for your favorite gear?
Started surfing after watching a preview of the Electro-Hamonix 5mm (amp in pedal), and finished with looking at Eastwood’s Warren Ellis electric mandolin. I want it all. 🙂

That might explain the lack of unoccupied space both in my guest bathroom, second bedroom ,closet space in the Master’s bedroom and many other morsels of space for my great lack of restraint on REVERB. Let’s not forget Mandolin Cafe!!!!!!!!
So much fun.

Fellow I know says that buying/selling guitars is like a sport to him. ?#? say what

I love looking – but I have to be really careful, ‘cause there are so many great things available, and I have a very hard time keeping my credit card in my pocket –
Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav

I’m eyeballing a Boss MO-2 at the moment. It would be a useful tool.
And I’m always on the lookout for really cheap small amps. I have discovered that little solid-state amps like the Marshall G15R-CD can be dramatically improved by replacing the transformer and the op-amp with higher quality components.

Daniel…take a look at the Boss Katana 50…….I’m still sending FBJ 45, just basking in the glow for a while longer

Heh. I have my CC numbers etc memorized.
It takes MAJOR willpower to not actually buy stuff on Reverb.
And right now, I’m looking at a TS9. And, doG help me, a real Klon Centaur, at that kind of price…..not that I need it, either.
Soon some of my gear will be on Reverb to tempt others and gain space in the music room. 🙂

Oh yes, I have been. And the BluGuitar products as well.
Problem is there’s no where around here to test drive any of this.
Regarding the FBJ, take your time. I’m in no hurry.

I have been looking for a FireFly on Reverb. Found one under 4K. I’m currently fighting GAS for a Collings 290 at Gryphon. It’s not going well.

I check my daily reverb email feed everyday

I’m currently hunting a 14-fret 00 cutaway with OM-ish neck and Reverb pings me daily, often with 00-16C (12=fret) models, because their search algorithms and filters are, ahh, questionable.
There aren’t many 14-fret cutaway 00s made, and the last one I saw – and let slip through my fingers – was a Schoenberg two christmases ago. Great price, should have bought it. And they just barely exist; there’s not that much of a market, I guess.
If SCGC made one I would be right at the front of the line.

I would speak to two people (though you have probably already done so…) Eric Schoenberg himself and Stevie Coyle at Might Fine Guitars. If a 14 fret 00 with a cutaway can be found, they’ll find it!
I find gear a bit more accessible than guitars. It’s cheaper per item.

I have discovered that simply mentioning some of the things that you’re looking for on this forum can lead to unexpected and wonderful results 😉
I’ve talked to Eric about a 14-fret 00 – he has twice pointed to Schoenbergs at $13k, and both of the ones he has had have fit that profile. If I *have* to spend that much, I’m going to think hard about it.
