The cheapest thing to do (next to not playing) is to, you know, have a friend and borrow their gun. Way cheaper for way better quality. Sounds like a win-win.
You'd think this would be option #1 in a crowd full of people with "backup markers" and stuff literally hanging off their walls...
I'm all for loaning gear to a buddy, but I'm not going to let them use me to be a cheap-*** about things. There's a difference between offering to loan gear to a pal and mooching off of somebody.
