My guitar buying has slowed quite a bit over the past few years.
I have purchased only four guitars this year and not intending to purchase any more.
Of course if the right guitar popped up I might be tempted and there are still about 10 weeks left to the year


My favorite for 2018 is my (2011) Bacchus Classic Series BLP-FM Relic.
The weight is so very close to perfect, the lumber is amazing, and the neck is perfect for my playing. This was a great purchase for me, for a Les Paul.


So, what cha got? What guitar is your most favorite guitar you purchased in 2108?

I bought way too many guitars in 2018. The two favorite probably are History GH-LCV. Made by Fujigen in 2011. I bought one them liked it so much. Saw another one a few months later for a really good deal and could not turn it down. From a totally different seller. Both happened to be 2011 models. Looks at the SN's of each of them. They are sequential. What is the chance of that? In the first on I put Throbak 101+ pickups. 525k CTS pots, Faber bridge, Gotoh locking tuners and Luxe Bumblebee caps. The thing just smokes now. I am still working on the 2nd one but I am putting in humbucker sized p90 from throbak.

I just got this yesterday and still need to wire it up with 2 non-EMG humbuckers but I think this will be the one for 2018. 1981 Super Real, likely an 1800 model. Got it from the Usednet booth at the Tokyo Musical Instrument Fair yesterday with a Super Real hard case, all for the cost of a new effect pedal.

I like the way you think !! When you lose .30 cents off every dollar it takes the wind out of ones sails. I'll have to save up for one of wulfman's special deals lol.

Some tasty guitars so far. Congrats

I've only bought one guitar this year (well, so far): A Tokai LS80 1984. When stuff like that pops up in my parts of the world, you got to act fast.
