Well, not that I’m planting a seed or anything, but there is no way I could have afforded all those fenders out of my back pocket.
I know some people go by the mantra of “if you haven’t got the cash, you can’t afford it”, which is solid advice.
But I know what I’m like - I’ll never end up saving thousands for all the stuff I want, because if I did, I should put it on work on the house, or savings or whatever boring shit people are expected to do.
So instead, I put them on monthly credit payments - I only ever do 2 monthly payments at a time and wait until they’re all paid off, reduce everything to zero, wait a while, and then do it again later on at some point.
I can manage this, and to be honest, it’s about the only thing left that I like to spend money on, as it’s my one and only serious hobby. I’ve tried other hobbies, but if I’m completely honest with myself, they are mainly 9 days wonder and then I trail off them. With music though, I’m comfortable dishing out the cash, because I’ll be doing music all my life.
So you should really get a Rickenbacker while you can, is what I’m saying hahaha
