    I need to up my game. when I record a vid I play crap.

    I've thinned out the guitars I do not want anymore and now am assembling a collection I am very happy with.
    I have my Les Paul Studio, Les Paul Junior, Kramer and now the strat.
    that covers everything apart from a space for a telecaster....

    and perhaps an SG, Custom shop Les Paul, a vintage 1950s les paul junior double cut, one of those guitars that's like double guitars.

    good point. and I have clearly omitted a Gretsch.

    with all this gear I really should have a decent amp. But where I live makes this impossible.

    I also confuse my wife.
    Clearly selling an epiphone guitar should not cover the cost of a new Gibson arrival

    That's my guitar buying done for now.

    the reviews are most pleasing.

    Yeah that's certainly sucked the glamour out of it, I had visions of you sitting around a table, drinking and smoking stuff and talking music...

They were, like, yah boo sucks, don't bother trying to be nice or make a political settlement, we're going to kill you anyway. Which seemed fair.

    France suffers particularly just because they've got loads of them, I think.
    There are other factors such as the legacy of Algeria and the French tendency to demand conformity to French identity and norms (which tends to lead to flashpoints with Allans), but yes, it's mostly because there's shedloads of them, they're ghettoised and they have open borders over which weapons and people can easily travel.
