I think it all boils down to the phenomenon of appreciation. My Strat hasn’t changed in the last 15 years. I’ve changed. For me it has to do with healing my over-concern with what other people think. I am enjoying a never-before depth of not caring what other people think. I’m about the business of ‘what do I think and feel?’ I don’t know how I got here… I’m just so grateful I did.
I’m renewing my 2012 No Buy-No Sell Guitar/Amp moratorium for 2013. Closing that hole in the bucket (the illusion “the perfect instrument is out there somewhere that will make life easy and everyone will love me”). In the meantime, I’m appreciating and enjoying the greatness of my guitars and amps. Living and learning, Larry
