    Well, the Stingray and the Valentine are gone now. I'm down to just the two ALs, which is kind of what I wanted to begin with.

    Plus the Big Al, of course!

    When I bought the Valentine, I wanted an Albert Lee. But I was happy enough with the Valentine, which of course sent my Tele whimpering and crying into the closet.

    But I still wanted an Albert Lee. So when the opportunity came to acquire TWO Albert Lees, I figured: I'm old, I could die, there's a pandemic, etc, so best to just go ahead and buy those two guitars and worry about paying for them later.

    Which I did by selling a couple of things, including my beloved Valentine. It's a great guitar, but now I have two Albert Lees and all is right with the world.

    From quote #1 to quote #2, less than 30 days. That's gotta be some kind of record.

    Though if I played guitar, I'd want an Albert Lee.

    As long as you are happy with then that’s all that matters. Could think of far worse than a pair of ALs.
    I’ll admit I’m not that clued up on EBMM guitars, I’ve got a couple of nice acoustics and electrics but that Valentine really caught my eye !
    EBMM over recent years have really been knocking out some very nice guitars, really upped the game, so it would be tough to choose.

    I also brought my Bongo 5 with exactly the same attitude, even got a dog with it to !

    But yeah. Your StingRay guitar has to be some kind of turnaround record

    I know I sound like my ex wife with purses, but the Valentine really WAS a keeper. Beautiful guitar.

    But I bought the green AL without paying much attention. It didn't have a whammy bar. I wanted a whammy bar. Bassists don't look that close, I guess, at bridges. I know I didn't.

    Then the Orange Crush came up and it had a whammy bar. It was priced right. It was a BFR. I bought it.

    So then I had the four guitars, having also bought the Stingray (it had a whammy bar). I had to pay for those ALs so I did what I had to do.

    I am happy as the proverbial pig in the equally proverbial stuff that proverbial pigs enjoy.

    As long as it’s working for you that’s all that matters. I never really thought of the combined price of all four together lol yeah that’s going to nip at the bank balance

    Well that’s another guitar to add to the GAS list for me anyways
