    I would build a workshop fully fitted with the best luthier tools available & I would build & restore guitars. & amps until I. Just got to old to do it anymore. I would build a giant collection with the only stipulation being to be in the lineup it would have to be repaired restored or built from scratch by me. That would be a collection that would light up my day every day of my life.

    I'm with you on that, KC, and have been building my shop for years. Then, you get what strikes your fancy and soup it up. Makes for a nice collection. I'm going to stick to guitars, for the time being.

    Well, if that comes to pass, could you make me the following?
    -a harpsichord
    -a mandolin with a electromagnetic pickup & a piezo
    -A Weissenborn
    -a National reso--maybe two--a wood body & a metal body w/biscuit cones
    -a Fender Jazz bass
    -A Kala U-Bass
    -A harp guitar

    Well maybe not the harpsichord...
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Insurance settlements!

    "off-the-wall Japanese and European '60s guitars."
    How about "on the wall?"

    I cannot believe I did not think of this, especially being as not a single guitar in my collection could be considered "stock" at this point.

    Currently my wife is leading me in this direction, she seeks my wacky scketches for guitars, and I have a original design I'm working on right now that has some merit to it albeit nothing too terribly mind-blowing (sort of like a grown-up version of a Kay Vanguard mated with a Jazzmaster).

    Maybe I would start a guitar shop, maybe a "Guitar Deli"....you come in, pick the parts you want (like your sandwhich at subway), and the skilled luthier puts it together for you...you get to see the exact parts before it's assembled.
    - 1996 Fender Jag-Stang, EMG Pickups, EMG Pi2
    - 1998 Fender Jaguar, Seymour Duncan SCR-1B Cool Rails
    - 1982 Hondo Paul Dean II (Bone Stock)
    - 2010 "Fender" Jazzmaster, Home Built

    Holy crap, don't even get me started, you reminded me of the Fender Student Single-10 Pedal Steel I rebuilt 2 years ago for a friend's boyfriend....man, I wished I could have bought it but it was a family heirloom. Those were made for Fender by Showbud in the late 60's.

    I would like to collect L series, and other high-end Yamaha handmade acoustic, and jazz box guitars.
