so...if you didn't buy the guitar you would give it to someone to pay for electricity?

No it is not because you worked hard for that money..

400 dollars will buy you nothing these days. so yes, it is bad to spend it on a guitar. save up at least 1000 if you dont wanna waste your cash

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

My last guitar cost me £450 and my halfstack went to about a grand
The only time I felt bad during any of this was when I had to hand over such a large amount of cash

if somebody can't pay their electricity bills, it's usually their own fault. don't feel bad about making a lifetime investment, especially when it pertains to art.

anyways, you'll never spend as much money on guitars as yngwie.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Not the ESP SV? Those are awesome, but they aren't available in the states, which sucks.

That is pretty bad, OP.

I mean, do you know how many starving African children you could've fed with £400?


None, because nobody wants your dirty British money.

he said £400, not $400. £400 is closer to $800, like he said. pay attention.

and nah, that's not a bad thing. i spent a little over $700 on my last one 2 years ago, but i'll have it for the rest of my life, for sure. better to spend a lot on one guitar than buy a bunch of crappy ones that add up over time before you finally realize, "hey, i should buy a good guitar for once."

seriously, professionel musicians will buy more than one over 1000$ instrument or gear piece in their lives, 400$ is nothing.

LoL $800 is what I spent on my crappy first guitar. GO HIGHER.

Electricity is over-rated anyway. Go Amish, imo.

my bad. but still, back not too long ago you could buy a great guitar for $400, nevermind 800. these days you cant get nearly as much for your dollar, IMO. everything has a 4 figure price tag these days....

what kind of amp do you have if you dont use electricty??
#28
It's not bad, it actually helps the economy.

That money didn't disappear into a rat hole when you spent it, it went to the people who sold it to you. They'll use it to pay their workers, and those workers will use it to buy things that they want and need.

Moving money around is good for everyone involved.

Not at all, last guitar I bought cost me about £350+ and the next one is going to cost me at leat £500, probably a whole lot more.

I mean I know where I could find guitars that cost $16,000 so I really wouldn't worry about it.

Alot of areas in africa wherethey don't like rice and would sell it to buy flour. Maybe we should just send them flour to make Nsima.

Actually that is less than $600 now-a-days. Just sayin'.
