When I had to have a V-Amp2 I justified it to the "leader of the opposition" by saying it can make my guitar sound like any other guitar and it has heaps of cool effects with it...

Now I want a Telecaster (because it sounds different to my Strat lol) I've gotten "but what about the V-amp that makes your guitar sound like any other guitar?"

Damm.... No answer to that.....

Cheers

But shes really great and very tolerant with my "hobbie"

I know a little bit about a lot of things, but not a lot about anything...
Looking for people to jam with in Sydney Oz.......

Flowers.

And new kitchen appliances go pretty far, if yours is into that.

Best of luck!

"The V-Amp can make it sound like it's going through any amp/pedal etc, but only a different guitar can sound like a different guitar" :)

Dude sorry, you're on your own.

I suggest a summer cruise.

Answer (with sheepish grin): "Oh...did I say 'any other guitar'? I'm sorry, I meant 'any amp ever made that I could possibly plug my guitar into. And amps are expensive; $1000 each, just about, so with this here little thingie, I've gotten $32,000 worth of amps at my finger tips; SAVED about $31,800! On the other hand, the guitar is just the one guitar...'"

Hehee...it'll never work....

She'd probably tell you to get a new hobby.

Sound is important no doubt, but no amp can make one guitar look and, more importantly, FEEL like another guitar.

And no amp can give you the feeling of awe and insipration that a new axe can.

Plus, amp's dont tend to appreciate in vlaue, unlike the guitar you want to buy (ok, thats a little untrue, but does she know that?)

Good luck with it!

Pete

I think kingpatzer and banre have cracked it.

Send her on a cruise and get the tele while she's gone. She won't dare say a word when she gets back. :wink: :lol:

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

Doesn't he get to go on the cruise with her? Otherwise, speaking as a woman, she might get a little suspicious!!! :wink:

Good point.

I know! Send the Tele on the cruise, and when it comes back in a couple of weeks or a month, everything will be forgotten! :)

Screw the Cruise...

Buy her another "Best Friend" she can wear around her neck, so the next time she wants to "Balk" at an idea, just remind her how beautiful that necklace is........ :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Dagwood would never work with my wife.

She's honestly jeallous of the time I spend with my guitars. "Things" don't do it for her, she wants the time with me.

That's why I say cruise. A nice solid 10 days of doing nothing but paying attention to her and she'll give you a pass on a small guitar purchase.

unless the 10 day cruise leaves you broke...

That puts a hamper on things now doesn't it!

You could buy "His & Hers" Tele's.

Give here the "Hers" Tele for her birthday, along with a voucher for some lessons.

That way you can jam together, learn together, play together - but most importantly, you get a new Tele :)

Rumour has it that if you play Microsoft CDs backwards you will hear Satanic messages.

Worse still, is that if you play them forwards they will install Windows.
