Sorry to hear. PRS's are great guitars! I still have 4 Gibsons, 2 Fenders( a California amplified acoustic, and a hollow body carbonera Tele,..) and my BC Rich and Carvin. Had to sell a lot of other stuff, and give away my cockatiel Marlon, who had a profane dirty mouth....

Ouch! I've been there and done that also.

PRS are great guitars but there will be more. I've built my guitar collection back up along with my guns, and I'm happier with what I have now. I had a lot more experience when I bought the ones I have now - that goes for the guns and guitars.

Wiebelhaus I know where you've been, had to sell almost all of my firearms to keep a roof over my mother and my heads and food on the table, I did manage to hang onto 3 firearms.

It took me six months to find a job. It was pretty darned scary being jobless. I live alone and there was no second income to help. I pride myself on being tough.

There must be many Americans in the same financial condition. The Pawn Shops are filled with fire arms.

Get your thinking right Brother...Sometimes good bye is the second chance a fella needs.....

Your items were their when you needed them... You will survive this, you will start over again, be patient with yourself and get out of your sorrowful mind.

Find yourself a cheap guitar and keep playing while your on this journey...

S T is right! Write some music! Some of my best music came after I split with the now deceased Wife#1!

Wieblhaus, BTDT. ten years ago, I was going through a divorce, had lost my job of 6 years, lost my house, most of my vehicles, found out that my ex had run up close to $40,000 of credit card debt in my name, and that she had not been sending in the mortgage payments for almost a year. All I had after the dust settled was my dog, clothes, some of my books, and my dog. I was lucky that I still had family close by, and I had to move in with my parents. I had sold my gins to my father right before moving back in with them, and I started working in my dad's garage to help out with their bills and pay mine.

Fast forward about 3 years, and I had payed off close to $125,000 worth of debt that was piled on me during the divorce, when I got an infection in my left foot which went gangrenous leading to an amputation. I had paid my debt down by working a full time job, and running my own business, and only owed $200 to pay of the CC debt when this happened. At that point, I thought things could not be any worse as I could no longer support my family. It was at that point that i realized i could go one of 2 ways, up or sideways.

It was during this, the worst point of my life, that I found out who really gave a rat's azz about me, and who didn't. Point is, it's always darkest before the dawn, and hopefully more good is in your future than bad. With all the good folks on here, I know that if you ask, others on here will give you a hand up. Even if all we can give is a sounding board, prayer, or encouragement, we're there for you. We will do what we can, just let us know.

Hope things start going better for you.

Weibel, Hang in there man! Auctioned off my namesake (my dads WF38) a couple years ago after my wife lost her job and my side business went south, weve survived the depression and are slowly getting things back together again. I miss the WF but it was only a thing, staying solvent was much more important than the cherished things I had amassed. Selling stuff to keep afloat sucks, the only thing worse would be not having anything to sell to keep yourself afloat!

This too will pass and life on the other side of sucks is good! Once you start surviving well again, you will really appreciate the little things much more! Good news is you have your old Shotty round still and hopefully your sanity!
