You know, it's interesting how our tastes and interests and concerns can change.
I used to keep a close eye on the Guild guitars being sold on e---bahhy. And salivate over some of them.
Just this morning, I took a look in that area after having stopped this practice about a year ago. . . and, nada, no thrilling adrenaline rush! no pitter-patter of admiring heart beats.
I'm pretty good on guitars. Time's gone by and I realize I don't need another one.
For me, it would be great fun to have a shiny, good-smelling, bright new machine to toy with. And fun, too, to learn how to use it. Fun.
But I suspect there are other joys that would be more enduring for me, and a new stringing machine would be transitory, and my mule of a Klippermate will just keep plodding on doing a great job for me when I need to use it.
For me, the thing's have fresh strings, rather than dead ones, and a Kmate does the trick here.
