You're like yoda! lol. You are absolutely correct. It is the thrill of a new instrument. That rush you get when you get it home and open the case..I do really love that first few weeks with a guitar, and then I get a negative thought on something stupid about it, and then fixate on it, and then that justifys me trading. And even though I feel I am a competent guitar player (i play in a a band, recorded a few cds, been signed etc) I wonder if my lack of attachment to 1 guitar for a period of time has hurt my growth as a guitar player.
Anyway, it's something I am working on, I know some people would laugh at a "guitar addiction" but it actually can cause some negative vibes. In my earlier post I mentioned a Deluxe Ash Tele that I loved that I traded, well I picked up another on about 3 months ago and still have it.. Thats a long time for me!lol. And this CE I just picked up is the 2nd time I owned it. I regretted trading it the first time and was able to get it back.. So, maybe I can stop. I certainly appreciate the positive, honest feedback. you nailed it on the head.
