    So, I've been GASing for a Squier Standard for some time now. I had this one on my radar since some weeks ago:

    My gas turned into my wife ordering me a pickguard. I wanted black but she insisted on the cream with chrome bracket and SHE paid for it! so here it is. The guitar now looks complete. Best $125 worth of gas I have ever got!! IMG_2117.JPG

    I’m having “Generalized Acquisition Syndrome” right now. I have no target. I just want to keep getting new, cool things.

    Dangerous.

    Not really for me, but I've been looking for a guitar to offer to my sister as a cool gift. She's been learning how to play on my old classical guitar and I wanted to give her something special. I can't really buy her a pricey guitar, but I've been seeking one of those huge bang for the buck instruments, plus I wanted something that could last and serve her really well for years, and that was a bit more unique.

    A few months ago I came across a CV 60s for a really good price; it had been customized but came with all the original parts, and so I could put it back to stock (let's just say the choice of pickguard wasn't exactly tasteful) and sell the SD Hot Rails bridge pup it had installed and I could have it for an insane deal. Unfortunately, there was already an interested buyer and I wasn't really willing to play a game of auctioning as the seller implied I could do. Also, it was a sunburst which she doesn't seem to love, and so I've been eyeing white guitars with black binding that she seems to enjoy quite a lot.

    A very interesting option I've came across which seems to sell for quite cheap is an Ibanez Art120, though I've yet to find a white model (there's a black one, though, I've tried to lowball an offer to the seller, but was unsuccessful) - it's an LP-style guitar, set-neck construction, with a quite unique design and which sells for under 200 bucks, quite a deal IMO:

    [​IMG]

    There also seems to be a white version of the EC256 by LTD, though I've never seen one up for sale; from my experience with the EC1000, that would be a great option construction-wise as well:

    [​IMG]

    Quite the ultimate gift would be an Epiphone LP Custom, but those are REALLY expensive in comparison to the previous options for identical specs, plus they tend to be heavier, bulkier and less comfortable, mainly for the hands of a 16-year-old teen girl that is still starting off, so even if I'd find a good deal, I'd still have to give it a try by myself:

    I have nothing in mind right now. After the coup from a couple of weeks ago, my trigger will only get pulled on some super deal, like the Deluxe Strat for $100 I saw last week but was sold within hours.

    I have extra hardware, and wish I could find a natural finish strat body and a maple neck.

    An amp. A 68 Princeton or Deluxe Reverb, ideally. Not gonna happen, but magic may strike. A Peavey Classic 20 would work for me as well.

    Also trying to decide between a Martin Dreadnaught Jr. or a Taylor GS mini-e in either Rosewood or Ovangkol.
