Then I'm glad wanting to play both classical and electric guitar is only "greedy" and not "blasphemous!" or "sacrilegeous!" :D

We Americans, in general, are good with greed :(

Stunning instrument, Rick. I suppose you also prefer a bamboo fly rod. Playing again . . .Rognvald
Maybe, Rog. But I prefer a vintage Torres too and that’s out of my price range compared to Steve’s reproduction. It’s hard to beat even cheap graphite.

But along the lines of a previous post: your choices say something about your personality.

Classical or electric guitar?
Fly fishing or spin casting?
Backpacking or RVing?
Sailing or Speed boating?
Prius or Escalade?
MaryAnne or Ginger?

If I had the years to dedicate to this, first I'd become a truly competent advanced CG player, then archlute. But then, that's not such a leap - does this qualify as a legitimate answer to the question?

I'm partial to the Jing Tingler myself. I'd also like to learn P. D. Q. Bach's magnificent tromboon.

Possibly the violin? I've never played one, not even picked one up but I'm sure I could soon get a tune out of one.

You can soon get a tune out of virtually any instrument. Early stage violin tunes tend to be very challenging to peoples ears though!
