  • So I tried to get my guitar back from a friend...

    ...and it turns out my Fender Duo-Sonic ended up in a motherf**king charity shop!!! I lent it years ago but that still doesn't excuse it. I don't see myself lending out anything dear to me any time soon. Anybody else had nightmares with leaving equipment in other peoples' care?

    I let my son take my Gibson for a gig recently, but he knows I pay all his bills.

        I've lent stuff out before, but I generally make quite clear that "you can borrow this. I don't need it back, and won't for a very long time. However, do not sell it, give it away, etc."

          I actually did several times and they were really cagey about it every time. Now I know why. Even if it's been a few years, it's totally inexcusable IMO

              Seems like someone owes you a duo sonic.

              I've loaned out guitars before, but only for the short term.

                i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. "It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.

                      Why would you lend out a Duo Sonic of all things?



                      (Of course, I lent out a dakota red Mustang for over a year and it came back to me safe and sound.)

                          the guy probably thought you forgot about it or something, leaving gear with someone for years is kind of crazy man

                            Crazy indeed, but that doesn't put the person in the right. I would demand restitution or take them to small claims court. Or judge judy, but she would probably bitch you out for taking so long

                              It is thanks to dumb asses like your friend that I have gotten some freaking amazing deals on guitars at thriftstores

                              My Dad frequently lends out very expensive gear ($5000 and up) to a variety of types of people: I only lend out cheap amps to relatives.
