I'm having a helluva time trying to decide what to do here and would appreciate your opinions.. The Story.. In '65 my dad bought a guitar through his uncle's music shop. He picked up a drop-dead gorgeous cherryburst Gibson es330(?) with all the trimmings..pearl blocks,bound neck/body,chrome P90s,dual-bar Bigsby,all the case candy..and then put it under the bed and forgot about it for nearly 50yrs. He literally never played it (acoustic bluegrass was his thing) and only opened the case once in a while to check the humidifier disc. This last Christmas he passed it on to me,which was quite a shock coming from the guy that made us pay back our hot-lunch money in grade school! The problem.. Well,obviously..I play bass. I noodle around occasionally on a six-string,and my skill level on one is limited to ham-fisting bar chords like an 80's glam rocker. I know it takes practice,but I would much rather work on Jamerson than Vai. So here I sit,staring at a museum-condition vintage guitar that(to the Gibby's benefit) I'll seldom use,contemplating what to do..I don't want to offend Dad,but I don't want to wait 'til he dies to do something with it(he's a very healthy 71,and will probably outlive me anyway)..and don't get me wrong,I fully appreciate the gesture,both monetarily and sentimentally..but I play bass Should I.. A) Shut up,be grateful,and learn how to play a six'r properly B) Trade it for some vintage or boutique-y bass goodness that I could actually put to use (he's practical to a flaw and might understand this) C) Sell it,buy a nice bass,and give the remaining cash as a gift,or to send Mom/Pop on vacation,or ???? I haven't brought this up with the folks yet because I wanted some second opinions first and my wife,for once,refuses to opine..What would you guys do?
