The person who accumulates the most guitars from January 1, 2015 through midnight December 31, 2015 will be declared the winner.

The prize will be: Well.....all the guitars you got over the last year. Duh.

Sign up today and LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

There are no plans to buy a guitar right now, but there will probably be a nice pedal or two.

2014 was a nutty year.......Suspect I might have "won". Though several items went away too, including 4 or 5 Hamers.

2015 has to be a slower pace (even though there is SUPPOSED to be something pretty nice popping in here any day now). I DO hope to be cutting loose several items too.

Edited to add that the first delivery for 2014 was just promised for tomorrow! (It is NOT a guitar that starts with an H).

I'm in, just picked up a new amp on Saturday. Although I too need to move some stuff that just isn't seeing enough play time, or unique enough tones, to justify keeping. Assuming I am successful, there will be more gear coming in as well. And the cycle continues.

I'm in, although not as crazy as last year, thinned out my collection slightly, in anticipation

of my shiskov. but will keep an eye on craigslist etc for any crazy deals.

I accept the challenge, with one slight wrinkle. How about a BIG F**KING AMP to blow the neighborhood up. It's time to kick some lunchpail amps to the curb.

So, YES, lets do this.

Well, I'm off to a roaring start. One of my 2015 resolutions was to thin the herd and all I managed to do was trade two Cali's for different guitars and buy a new MIM Jackson. :blink:

Not doin' so hot on that resolution, folks. :lol::P:rolleyes:

I am in. All I bought in 2014 was a cool amp...my Lil Dawg Ol Yeller 6g6-b Bassman clone. No guitars.

2015 will get off to a roaring start as I am expecting my Shishkov Ultimate ....,after that.....I hopefully start selling other guitars to fund another Shishkov!!!!

Two more Bob Wallace custom guitars and maybe a tube amp on my horizon.

Only looking for one more guitar, which I think will be exceedingly difficult/impossible to find. Who knows what the year will bring though :lol;

Shoot......Post WTB. You might be surprised.

It worked for me a few years back when I was trying to track down some hard to find Hamers!

I am for certain buying a Mesa Boogie Road King soon, and I'm looking for the perfect rare Hamer to develop a new relationship with :)

Is this a net gain thing? I'm already up three for the year, but already sold one with another on the auction block and probably two more to follow.

Trading should count. Selling a guitar and buying another should also count. Every guitar that comes in should count, regardless of how many leave. But its not my thread so what do I know.

Is it all about quantity or does expense matter? I've got a ridiculously strong urge to buy a Krautster II or a Lentz HSL.

As long as you like the guitars, I think the beauty of it is that even if you don't win, you win. :D

My motto for 2014 has carried over to 2015: "Helping the economic recovery one guitar at a time."

I'm planning on selling a bunch of stuff that's just sitting and getting some type of semi hollow w bigsby. I'm doing more straight jazz standards than rock gigs these days and don't have anything that works like I want it too. So I'll be looking for a standard Monaco or something similar soonish

I'm aiming for two guitars this year. No more selling. Won't win the contest, but I'll enjoy the guitars.

I'm out: at this point it would be beyond senseless for me to throw any more money at Madison Square Bedroom. I'll be paying the remaining balance on the Shishkov Ultimate and that's it.

Contemplating helping you guys out though - a sell-out of my modest collection could get me enough cash to get back into building cars...

Oh yeah! I'm gonna sell sell sell!

Basically I'm getting rid of dead weight, so I can buy... nothing? I need guitars that I love, not guitars that I just got because I wanted to try one out.

I also need to solve my issue with SSH guitars.
