Blogger Jaimie Muehlhausen has bought and sold a lot of guitars in his life. If you''re not familiar with his blog, there''s plenty of good reading to be had. We like today''s post about a 1984 Ovation, in which he says it''s ok to love the guitars you no longer think are cool. He puts it perfectly: "I guess it''s like looking at a photo of yourself from high school...the haircut seemed cool at the time, but you don''t really want to go that direction again."
Ever wonder who gets to buy those 1/25 guitars that Gibson puts out? Well, it''s this guy. He has a 250+ collection, including some very limited runs (Jimmy Page double-neck), and one-offs made just for him. Check out the photo gallery with his Les Paul decorated in ticket stubs. The unique hobby has also led him to meet several guitar idols.
