I already have a great Ibanez S classic, and a carvin strat. STILL, I`m seriously thinking about buying a carvin dv 727 from ebay even though it costs over 1000$ (and after all I`m student).
I want a "shredguitar" with a whammy, and think I`m a bit too demanding on the specs compared to my skills ....

anyone else familiar with the problem of constantly wanting new guitars?

I have 15 guitars. I always want more! If I find one that I like, I like to have two or three of the same one. It's really a sickness. Most of my guitars would be considered, "beyond my skillset." I just love guitars though.

Haha, yeah you got QUITE a collection! I read that you spent all of your savings on your latest Jackson biggrin.gif

Even though I`m getting better at the guitar, at least I hope so, I feel that a Carvin with bareknuckles is a bit above my level of playing. Still, compared to my other guitars, this guitar is much more ME if you catch me drift wink.gif

On the other hand, it can be seen as an investment as well. 1500$ is a lot of money, still I think I could get 2000 $ by selling it in Norway with the right timing...

Go for it man! If you feel like buying it because it might be YOUR guitar, what more of a reason do you need?

And yes I have spent ALL of my savings which is why I have to sell some other guitar but I will propably get a new one right away^^ stay tuned for more gear to come!!

Hi! My name is Staffay and I'm also a Gear-a-holic, I guess Im on a amateur level guitar-wise, since I only have 6 at the moment, but on the other hand I have 3 pianos, 2 synthesizers, a lot of expensive studio stuff and two rabbits. But I also found out that it's way better to spend the money on gear than on women, cheap booze or holiday's with bad weather. I rather say that we must stand up for our rights to have these lovely pieces! Im going to be burried with my guitars! laugh.gif

Yeah, I know what you mean.. smile.gif

I'm getting my third Nik Huber late next year..
They don't come cheap, although my next one isn't the most expensive.
He's making me a guitar after my own specs, where I mix some of his guitars into a new model biggrin.gif
He's never built a model like this before, so it's gonna be exciting to see what it looks like in the end..
So hopefully my specs will be good enough to shake the foundations of modern guitar history tongue.gif

I have to live off Macaroni and ketchup for a while now, haha laugh.gif

I'm GAS personified biggrin.gif
