More than just his waistline :)

So, I have a pretty good case of RA which is not allowing my fingers to do what they used to. I have to make some decisions on what to keep and what to part with. I'm trying to reduce down to 1 solid body, 2 semi-hollows, 1 bass and a 3 acoustics.

I will be posting photos and descriptions of some of my guitars.
Offering them to those who appreciate them the most.

All the best, from Bruce(willbo)

I understand completely. Psoriatic arthritis pretty much took my fingers away from me and I've been finding homes for my last handful (save for those which have sentimental value).

I hate to think about what it's going to be like when we all start to get old :(

Bubba, been there for a while. I'm not too far from being a blue-hair. LOL

Can't have been an easy decision to make, Neal and Bruce; sorry that you had to make it!

Even at my relatively tender age, I can feel things not working as they used to but my hands, fortunately, are still OK!

My sincere sympathies to you both.
For me it's relentless OA which is slowly seizing up the finger joints.
Getting old sucks.
