You know what hurts a musician the most? Having to sell away his gear. In the words of Alda Tan, "musicians should never have to sell their gear". Well, unless they want to of course, not because they have to.

Today, I sold the very first guitar I bought with my own hard earned money. It's not just an instrument. It's an extension of the person who played it. There's always sentimental value to every piece of gear.

The worst thing is I've fallen in love with Fender Strats and I can't even buy a decent American one with the money I got from selling my Ibanez. I wonder which hurts the most. Selling the guitar or coming to terms with how much it was sold for.

    I sold off my first Kawai upright for a keyboard - it feels different and I don't really like her. =( But she's easy to maintain and mobile la.
