STUPID IS WHAT STUPID DOES… Intervention needed!!!!

Post by AiRdAd »

Hello group.. I’m AirDad and I’m a Partscaster-aholic!

For the last while or so, I’ve been gradually building up a totally over the top and unnecessary horde of partscasters. It’s got WAY out of hand, and I have got WAY too many guitars hanging around! For the last two years or so, I’ve been contemplating culling things dramatically, but haven’t been able to bring myself to do it. I’m super emotionally attached to all of them, and I can’t bear the thought of getting rid of any of them.

I’m going to post pics of the all guitars and parts I’ve got, and will also make a start on a list of all the individual parts hanging around.

I’m looking for any help or any ideas of the best way to proceed to rationalise things. I feel at the very least, a good cock punch is in order! :-)

Oh shit.

I'm really getting into modding Teles at the moment. I really need to come and check out some of your pickups - particularly the Nocaster and the Fralins.
All the gear... absolutely no idea...

I'm ambivalent, but if you have a nice forum LP I'm sure we could come to some sort of arrangement involving kidneys and 36 monthly payments......
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.
