I have my dream electric guitar rig, with all the bells and whistles, perfectly set up for how/what I play. Thousands and thousands of dollars of awesomeness and guaranteed instant gratification just sitting in the other room. But I almost never play it at home because I have an acoustic guitar right by my desk and I don't want to walk 15 ft., plug in three things, and flip two switches. Twenty-something me, who worked really hard to find/buy all that gear, is so pissed off!
Donations to a poor student who had to sell all his almost-no-gear and only has a nylon string guitar left would be appreciated. ;)
Hehe. I hear you - it's an unconscionable waste here at home. But in my defense, I do still use every bit of it at gigs. And in defense of my laziness: if my whole rig was next to my desk instead of my go-to acoustic, I'd never get anything done. Ever.
I don't have a "dream rig," but I do have a bunch of guitar stuff that never gets used. I'm in the same room as the stuff, too.
I'd rather pick up an electric and play it clean, than plug it into an amp. I have to unplug my headphones from my desktop in order to play with an amp (house full of sleeping people), and I really don't like crawling under my desk twice when I want to play around on the guitar for a little bit.
I'm going to build me a guitar corner with a bunch of stuff already set up soon, so I don't have to do all of that.
