Thank you. You know, I borrowed a Flying V for about a week and I gotta say that I just didn't like anything about it. There's only one way to play it while sitting, I don't care for the shape, I didn't care for the Dirty Fingers pickups either. So I don't really see one in my future.

not my bag either. nothing special about them imo.
the dimebag is the worst lol. but many like both so
my opinion is my own.

... or at least I'm beginning to think so. In my defense, almost all of these are overtime trophies. Plus, I don't gamble or do drugs or sink money into cars or boats and we're always putting money into savings from every check. I'm maxing out my 401k and the only loan we have is our mortgage.

If I didn't work so much, I'd have more time to play but then I wouldn't make spare cash to buy more guitars and amps that I don't have enough time to play.

Oh well. My son and my grandkids are going to end up with a pretty decent collection.
Addict? What addict?

Please, show me your addiction... er, collections! Beautiful stuff there, guys. It's making me feel better about mine, in that I'm not the only one who has an appreciation for the beauty of musical instruments.
