Re: Much better to be addicted to guitars than cameras...

My Les Paul cost £2k, my Jaguar less than £1k, Line 6 HX effects £400 and my Marshall half-stack less than £1k. Versatile and with a back-up guitar for about £4.5k.

The equivalent camera setup to me would be a Nikon D850, D500 plus the holy trinity at about £10K.

Cameras are very expensive compared to other boys toys.

I got a Tokai Les Paul for 800, a Jeff Beck Special Strat for 1200.
I changed the bridge and the tuners of the Tokai which, as you probably know is of better quality than the original Gibson. 
Then I slipped a cervical disk and lost the median nerve of my left hand.
Beautiful guitars. The lesson to be learned: Do it while you can!!!
