As any serious collector/accumulator will tell you, "need" has nothing to do with it.

Iíve let some guitars go that Iíve really bitterly regretted in the past. Itís all too easy to get caught up in GAS and forget how lucky we are to own such beautiful instruments. I wish I still owned (or could afford to buy back) my Martin Jeff Tweedy, my Ď08 Hummingbird, my Ď09 Blues King, my Ď06 CJ165, my Ď05 Martin OM18V, my Ď14 1941 Reissue SJ100...

We go forwards not backwards, but relief is always a more enjoyable emotion than regret, níest-ce pas?

I have a bit of the same dilemma. About 3 months ago I put my J45 up on Craigslist at a price I'd be willing to sell it for. Renewed the ad once and then forgot about it until I got a text this morning from someone that wants to look at it. He's local (our county has only 5,000 locals) and is an established attorney so there's a good chance he's got the bucks. I waited 3 hours before getting back to him, but I did call and will meet him in town this Friday afternoon. In my head, at this moment, I can make this work. In actuality, we shall see.
