My girlfriend recently came up with how guitarnerds justify our need to buy every guitar we see and it hit pretty close to home. I’m a little scared at how accurate it is. I think she can read minds… I’m wearing a tin foil hat around her for now on.
“I liken you guitarnerds need for guitars to the 5 stages of mourning
denial: I don’t really want it
anger: YES I FUCKING DO!
bargaining: includes possibly trading in an old guitar which you never play.
depression: really wishing you’d never traded that old guitar which you never play because you really miss it now.
acceptance: Having hot new baby and bragging rights. “It’s like the best guitar I’ve played ever”
cycle starts again.”
