He wasn't thinking at all cause he obviously had no brain... biggrin.gif But You're most welcome to join us again, my electricity bill is ridiculous high, and if I can be provided with some high-class northsea oil instead, I have no problems with that. And You in return will not have to smuggle tobacco and liquers anymore!!! laugh.gif

The dream of united Scandinavia was dreamed by many kings off all the northern nations, alas all of them were not realized.... Will the combined effort of two venerable GAS addicts be enough to overcome the obstacles created by decades of isolation!?!?

Hahaha, going from gear-o-holics confessions to history class, sweet tongue.gif

I wanted to tell that I resisted to buy that Carvin tongue.gif
Most likely a loss in pleasure, but a big save for economy.... which will rather go to the Blackstar ht-5 as soon as my luthier gets his finger out and orders some laugh.gif

What's wrong and can be really disappointing is to buy new guitars thinking you will play better with more expensive stuff. I already tried that. It doesn't work. tongue.gif

Nah, that fact do we all already know. The drooling comes from just OWNING and looking at them. Look at Jimi Hendrix, he played at some piece'o'junk that wasn't even pre-cbs. I once saw Larry Carlton showing off, cutting the three lowest strings off with a plier, and then continued to play. And still it sounded great!

I think new guitar players today have e tendency to buy/wish themselves much more expensive guitars than they actually need (talking from my very own point of view tongue.gif ). Even though I reckon myself as a OK guitar player, I bet that even with a high-end Ibanez or Music Man (or similar), any of the instructors would sound better than me even with a cheapo Squier tongue.gif
