    But it presents problems of its own. I played an Artcore AG95 today that was stunning. I even have some hundred$ in Amex gift certs to spend, so it would barely require any out of pocket expenditure. I just quite literally have no room left to put it without running a risk of it getting damaged or something.

    BTW I played it thru a Wholetone amp. Awesome combination.

      You could try

      "Look, bitch! I buy what I want, now GET your ass in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!"

          I Negotiate. I bought my latest guitar on the condition I sell one of my others and use the proceeds to buy her a Boomerang III loop pedal.

            Play a continuous message while she is sleeping..........."your husband needs a new guitar - your husband needs a new guitar................

              How about agreeing on a monthly gear budget ?

              this.. but you can make it just a spending budget to include stuff like clothes, entertainment etc for yourself... the budget will be larger and then you just spend it all on gear

              works for me

                Be very careful, she will now need a pair of shoes to match the guitar.

                I bought my wife a new BMW last summer. I can pretty much buy whatever I want now.

                    I always buy stuff on sale and say that I could sell it at a profit later if needs be. I have yet to test this assumption but it normally works.

                      If you already have one guitar, she will never understand you needing another.
                      Besides being a guitar player,
                      I'm a big fan of the guitar.
                      I love that damn instrument.

                          I still have one of those negotiated deals hanging. I made a half hearted attempt at selling one on craigslist. It didn't sell and she pretty much forgot about it but I don't want to try that one again for a while.

                            Buy her something nice (not necessarily a beemer ) and then buy what you want.
