I've come to the realization that I have a sickness, it's called G.A.S. I have become obsessive about building guitars, I have guitars of all configuration, scales, and materials... All have been built by hand, I suppose I should just embrace it.
I have to say, after 5 years of living in Vegas the music scene still blows. I don't understand why metal is so previlant here. There is no diversity and the creative pool is quite shallow, I suppose that what I get for living in the 'Entertainment Capitol of the World'... Such B.S.
I haven't played in a band in years. Back when I was a teen bassist where hard to come by, 10 years later they're still hard to come by. I was amazed on how substandard my playing abilities have become and why I allowed my abilities to atrophy.
It's been about 3 months now and I've not yet reach a level of skill that I am happy with, what I need to do is stop building guitars and start practicing more!
I am totally and completely obessed with building/modifying guitars. It's unbelievable, I'm currently in the process of building 5 guitars, I've completed three and modded two, on top of that I have no intentions of selling my creations.
What is a man to do? The only thing I can do is complete my work, maybe play them for a few shows and sell as the honey moon phase begins to fad. But if there's one thing about the difference 'buy' and 'creating' a possession, it's love; letting your creation, your passion go for a few bucks is a very difficult concept to concieve in my mind at the moment... Unless the prices is right
