So much for that

I was doing some reading on a non-guitar forum a few minutes ago and it looks like the coronavirus will be bumping us off until maybe another year from now.

That means that I'm going to be stuck sitting on my butt for another year.

It seems rather unlikely that a 19 year old Bridgette Bardot is going to break into my bedroom to boff me into a vegetative state SO I'm going to have to buy more guitars to keep myself occupied.

Don't think I can top the Firebird VII but I'm willing to give it a shot.

I see what you mean. You cant get out to socialise and its puts a major part of your life on hold. I'm hopeful that we could all get closer to normal before that. The new vaccine may help bring that about. As always we'll have to wait and see.

I was lucky, I met & got to know my lady (she's a long way past 19 mind) in 2019. Even so we were separated for about 10 weeks during the Spring uk lockdown. We are also separated now (2 weeks) as she visited her family a short while back and we want to minimise any potential spread. 

Meanwhile, that Firebird will last you quite a while yet I should think 🙂

This upcoming bit is going to be rough, that's for sure.  We went up over 5200 cases in ONE DAY here in Pennsyltucky.  YOW!

People who can't entertain themselves with a musical instrument must be having a really hard time of it.

Having a "new" guitar to look forward to every so often will brighten things up.

It's good when relationships are new, isn't it?  That old joke when you're first starting out you're at each other all the time then it tapers off to every couple days and then down to once a week and then every so often and at the end you pass each other in the hallway and go **** you!

If you find a '59 LP in a tasty burst it would the crowing jewel of you masterpiece of buying. Or go for real Braz Rosewood on a mid to late 60's Martin D-28 or higher. You will be glad you did, with leather.

You need a demented bread boffer to relieve your tension.

I have a Flying V but not the $10,000 Jimi Hendrix Replica and the $10,000 Jimi Hendrix SG!!!

Talk about iconic.

And priced about 4 times what they're worth as far as I'm concerned.

I just don't like the feel of Fedner necks and can't play them worth beans.

What I would like is an ES-150DC but they're so old by now I worry about structural integrity.  Even HOT HIDE GLUE can only do so much.

I also recall KSDaddy saying the necks were super skinny so...

SF - I know you said you just haven't been able to get along with the Fender necks...  but really I'd probably be looking for a Fender Jaguar or Jazzmaster?...  something really short scale - just to round out the collection.  If that's not doable - an LP R8 could be pretty cool addition to your collection.  (inside thought...  let me spend your money!)
