I don’t know about you, but I live on a budget. I’ve mentioned in past posts on this blog and my comments on other blogs about this topic. My wife made the very interesting comment that too many people try to put together a lot of mediocre equipment in hopes of making it good. Would we be better served with a few key purchases rather than a bunch of bargain hunting, unplanned purchases? Can we as guitarists find our individual tone if we only buy a few pieces of equipment? Should we be required to master a piece of equipment before moving on or adding something else? How do you decide?
