That's what I call a rich man,someone who has the freedom to do what he wants,free of to much compromises
For me ist's the first time in my life I'm able to save up 2 grand for a guitar .like the Maybach Lester.I played it 2 times and it's one of the best I ever played.
The time I made a living as a musician in my live (2years only) as a young man is long ago. There are some good instruments in my studio,like a 87 Strat,a´n Ibanez As 103 , a Dean Evo Tevo aso which all work well,but I never had the possibility to get an instrument that makes me feel like it's a body part.The Lester is doing that for me.
I know well where you are talking about when you describe the financial responsibility for the structure of a family.
Great that you go this way.
I wish you and your family all the best .
