My dad seems to think that I am wasting money with all my music related purchases. He doesn't understand that all my purchases have reasons and that I don't feel like I am throwing money away. I have bought a new amp, and recently a new stratocaster even though I have a Les Paul and Telecaster.

He thinks I am throwing all my money away unnecessarily. One argument he has is that I am going to college next year, so I need to be saving all money possible, but I have a job this summer for $12 an hour, working 40 hrs a week, so I feel confident in my money saving, and he also says all this guitar stuff is useless because I can't have a guitar in a dorm but i don't believe that and I don't plan on being in a dorm for all 4 years.

So what do you guys think? Am I wasting money on guitar related things I don't need or is my dad just being crazy?

a) ofc you can have a guitar in a dorm

b) if its something you want and enjoy, and you spend your own money on it while saving for college.... tell your dad to stfu lol

What you really need is a new amp.

Or fog machine.

Or potted plant.

There, now it's out of my system.

Why ask the pit when you've clearly made a final judgement with justification? And do you really expect an unbiased view on the subject from a bunch of musicians?

Do you really need a strat, les paul and a tele?

Probably not but who the hell cares. As long as your whole paycheck doesn't go to guitar stuff and fast food then he can't say anything... unless it's his money you're using

Is your dad a musician? If not, his opinion isn't really all too surprising.

I don't think you're wasting money, though.

Seriously plenty of people as this guy said dont see much of a use in owning lots of guitars and musical gear. I have seen it happen plenty times.

I had a guitar and a small amp in college. My roommate had an acoustic guitar, as well. So, yes...you can bring guitars to college. However, be aware of any curfew or noise rules in your dorm. Basically, don't be the douche who's keeping people up after 10PM trying to nail that riff you've been playing for 3hours+.

Yea sounds like my parent get used to it. And at least you have you own money, they're my ATM's and they think every guitar and amp are the same in every way Except prettiness. So I'm stuck with a guitar I only got, because my last one broke, and my amp that I had no say in the purchase of.

dude hate to say it, but i agree with your dad. too many stupid people these days are getting themselves in debt. i'm in college now. and dude seriously. money is hard to come by when you're trying to keep up with homework and don't have time for a part time job...

now why in the hell do you need another guitar if you already have TWO?! your justification doesn't account for the fact that you will lower the value of the other guitars, because you won't play them as much. not in actual value, but value to you... honestly to me, you're wasting your money...

a penny saved is a penny earned, if you spend it all, you haven't earned shit with all that hard work... put it in the bank man you'll need it someday

If you get on a roll spending all your money on guitar stuff you won't have any left over when you get to college, a place where you can't work 40 hours a week unless you want to fail. It's okay to spend a little bit here and there, but seriously? Three guitars and multiple amps before you're even in college? No doubt a bunch of expensive pedals also. Slow your roll, Tom Hanks.
