It's up to the guitar for me. I got an ESP since it was a pretty and costly way to use an additional guitar. On the other hand, I have nothing else to priorities, if I see a beast I want, because I want to collect beasts. I need them not, but I want them. I want them.

I think you have justified the purchase if you want and can afford a second guitar.

Are guitars allowed in Turkish prisons? Can gladiators play?

Dunable makes cool stuff. I’m tempted to get a baritone guitar built. The guy is here in LA too. It’s more than I want to spend, but maybe I need to fix my priorities :)

While throwing the last bit of trash away from our move, I found this in the dumpster… Seems perfectly playable except for some chips in the finish. My plan is to keep it in our van to take camping.

My wife bought a Yamaha F210 some 20+ years ago on her semester abroad in college and only played in maybe 6 months. We've been packing it around ever since. I finally broke it out of the closet 2-3 months ago and have been plucking away on it every day since. @mandown is correct about all of the resources online. It's more of a question of finding one that "clicks" for you. I happen to like this guys online stuff.


YMMV of course.
So, I've been playing almost everyday and my fretting hand is really starting to bug. I feel like it's going pretty well considering I'm self teaching and I'm having a good time. Probably "playing" an hour + a day, (chord/note/finger exercises + actual music) and I think I'm probably just over doing it, so imma probably take a couple days off. Just wondering if this is a typical experience for any of you guys that have been long time players.

Everyone is a little different, and ergonomics are tough to judge from the web posting. You could have some slop in your technique that’s causing you problems.
