Maybe she'd change her tune if she heard you were looking for a DP with GF action! ;-)

Come to think of it, he might even be able to sneak in some really nice instruments without his wife ever finding out. smile I wonder if that would count as "cheating your wife with the love of your life".

EDIT: Kinda slow today, but now I understand dewster's nudge at the "GF action". I'd love to see wife's reaction to that. laugh Poor guy, he'd probably have to get a surveillance camera installed in his "playing shed".

Actually I have, virtually all my instruments are either special-order or custom (I'm left handed btw) and the building is a bit more than a shed as it has full electric and heating/air. It can hold all my guitars, basses and amps but not enough room to add anything larger than a DP. Ideally that would change if I have another building contructed, probably about 750 sq ft (about twice the size of the other building) which would comfortly fit a piano.

Oh, who would be that stupid to bring one's gf to one's home? That's why they have their own place.
