Well, the way it worked out, I traded an electric guitar that I didn’t play for a Breedlove Pursuit Concert Mahogany. It is a step up from my other acoustics. I’m going to start a fund for my next guitar with will probably be either a BR160 or a BR180, unless a Martin just jumps up out of nowhere and insists that I own it.
Currently, in addition to the Breedlove, my acoustics are a Seagull S6 that’s about 25 years old, and is improving as it ages, I also have a Dean Exotica, which plays surprisingly well for what it cost. I have an Epiphone FT 125, no telling how old it is, the only thing that’s left of the tag inside is the model FT 125 and the words “Made In Japan.” The Epiphone needs work but she and I have some history so she gets a place of honor. I have an Indiana 12 string, because it was not expensive and I wanted a 12 string. I also have a Dean Palimino hollow body electric (I don’t really know what the knobs and switches do, but it was a gift from a friend, so I’m trying to figure it out a little at a time, and it’s not going anywhere.
So, as my wife tells me, I don’t even really need another guitar, but it’s not all about need. Sometimes someone else may want to play, or I need one that I don’t mind toting to camp or traveling with (my eventual plan for the Epiphone if I ever get it fixed). I keep one at church, I mean there’s a piano there, there should be a guitar too, shouldn’t there?
