    Why vintage? Why not one of the more recent ones out of Corona or Tacoma or New Hartford? They're less likely to 'need work' for one thing. And why dread, for that matter? Get your hands on a jumbo F-50 or F-412 out of any of those shops, and it doesn't get any better. I just shipped off another Epiphone today. The JF30-12 and F50R are monopolizing the play time.

    'nother reason I think 3's the perfect number of guitars:
    Even if one's in the shop you've still got a choice between 2 or a spare if a buddy shows up by surprise, without one.

    You need to change the 3 to a 6 and then add a 0
    -A whole lotta Guilds, mostly acoustic but a few nice electric pieces as well

    -Not nearly so many Martins, Gibsons and Taylors

    -2 Chinese Blueridges and 1 Epi Masterbilt
