A Man Who Loves To Collect Guitars
Playing guitar has always been my passion. I consider it as an outlet for my emotions. I have different kinds of guitar and every time I go to different places I make sure that I purchase a guitar as a souvenir. Throughout the years of collecting guitars, I have mastered the factors that make a guitar beautiful and worth your penny.
Buy as many as you can
For guitar collectors like me, having as many guitars as possible gives a sense of pleasure. In my guitar collection, I have both the new models and the vintage ones. It does cost me money, but I don’t mind at all.
Get a better version
Whenever I purchase a new guitar, I always make sure that I buy the better version. I always see to it that the guitar I purchased can be used on special occasions. As for me, I record my own song and I also perform. Hence, having a presentable guitar is a must.
I know that collecting a guitar is quite an expensive passion. I must admit there are times when I feel like I have to sacrifice other important stuff just to buy a new guitar. My usual budget is around $200, but I am willing to stretch my budget a bit more if I feel like the guitar is worth it. Of course, I consider the design, style, and quality of construction.
Currently, I have a total of eight guitars and I purchased them from different places. I have different varieties of guitar such as the single coil electric guitar, humbucker electric guitar, a 12 string acoustic guitar, a steel string acoustic guitar, semi hollow body electric guitar, and a classical nylon string guitar. It took me two years to collect all these types of guitars. It is a long process and I know that my addiction to guitar will not stop here. I am a self-confessed traveller and whenever I visit new places the first thing I look for is guitar.
Collecting a guitar is a hobby that takes self-discipline. A guitar comes with an expensive price tag, especially if you want to collect premier guitars. You have to manage your finances and see to it that you are not sacrificing other things just because of your addiction to guitars. I know it is easier said than done for I myself can’t sometimes control myself. I love my guitars and they are all worth my time and money.
