I managed to sell three guitars on eBay this past week. Nothing near and dear to my heart. An ESP Maverick, an ESP Edwards SG (the one that balances badly), and a 1981 Carvin DC-200.
Why? I don't need the money--at least not imminently. I might end up buying another guitar with the resulting cash. Ok, I almost certainly will end up buying another guitar. It's an addiction. However, my most pressing need is space. I ran out of room in my little studio cave to store 12 guitars. I've still got several that I haven't played in a long time and probably will sell.
Emotionally, this is a good time to sell, since I haven't been in much of a mood to play guitar incessantly for several weeks now. I've still played and kept my chops at a respectable level, but I'm just not getting much inspiration from the muse at the moment. Guess this blows to hell my New Year's resolution to complete a song a day, huh? :)
You can't force creativity.
