    I can't find a certain guitar for the life of me. Not sure how it disappeared. All my guitars are in a row on two racks. I have a few in front on stands. But man, how does a guitar disappear?

    Is it old age? I think I'm losing it ...

    Loaned it to a friend?
    Sent it to the luthier?
    Kids borrowed it without permission?
    Took it to a jam and left it?
    Sold it??

    ....just some initial thoughts....

    All these years of you sneaking in a new guitar, hoping the wife won’t notice because you have so many. Now she is sneaking them out, hoping you won’t notice because you have so many!

    Was it a Dan Armstrong?
    They're half-way there.

    I thought I was bad for losing a fountain pen that I know I purposely left on the kitchen table so that I would not lose it while hiking in the woods later that afternoon.

    That's the toll you have to pay to the guitar gods when you don't comply with the $o pledge, man.

    I had an old Gretsch Tennessean disappear when I loaned it to who I thought was my best friend and he traded it for drugs, and then he wouldn't tell me who the drug dealer was so I could try and buy it back. I attract the nicest people in my life.

    Why would the wife do that? He didn’t ask her to keep them all in tune.

    They show up, they always do, I find them in different cases in different closets in different rooms I don’t think I’ve ever sold one and didn’t remember, but I’m getting to that age that might happen

    Under the bed?
    The attic?
    The basement?
    The trunk of the car? So many possibilities!

    Aliens came and took it to probe it to see what all the hubub about guitars is...I will magically reappear and not remember where it has been. Or a secret agent came and took it to put a tracking?listening device in it...It too will magically reappear and not remember where it has been.

    ha ha. You guys are too funny. But man, I'm losing my mind. I think it's old age.

    I just modded it about a month ago. It was an HH with a DF in the bridge and a Chinese H-Rails in the neck. I wanted to pull the H-Rails out and stick a GM Stackbucker that I picked up from @Ace38 in there. But now I can't find the guitar. ha ha

    I mean, it could be possible that one of the kids grabbed it ... though, it's unlikely. Maybe the boyfriend took a gander and said, "Man, I wanna be as cool as your dad and borrow his killer guitar". ha ha
