    I've only been married once, for 25+ years now. We ain't perfect, but we both know we got a good thing going, so I guess we'll stick it out a for the long haul.

    Relating her to Telecasters...I'm fine with the way she is stock, I just wish I could replace or discard some of her accessories (relatives).

    My wife is kind of like a Telecaster. No nonsense, speaks her mind, built to last. The big difference is my Tele doesn't mind when I play other guitars.

    I haven't seen my 1st ex-wife in almost 40 years. Unlike a vintage Telecaster, I can't believe she's gotten any better looking with age.

    for the lucky, their first tele is a blackguard that is perfect in every way. but, for many, their first guitar isn't a tele at all.. it is either a damaged, beaten up wreck that needs frets or never plays in tune or pickups that are shrill.... or the action is so brutal you physically hurt just trying to interact with it... or it is a whimsical thing with a bunch of points and active electronics that just never really work in any tangible way. Some first guitars you get sucked into buying with promises or because someone else told you it would be the guitar of your dreams.... and in some cases, that first guitar isn't played much or is left out at parties and goes home with a new owner.

    The saving grace of all this guitar talk is that there are lots of guitars and if things don't work out with your first one... you may find your soulmate guitar along the way, when you do, you stop needing all the hobbies and the gear hoarding and all the tinkering and you sit down and really really learn how to play that one great guitar....

    Nope she was that custom shop guitar you buy used for a healthy sum of money cos it looks and sounds great despite the relic

    You think a quick setup will make it a great player, but then you find that the fretboard has bumps .. You give it a fretjob so compensate and find that the trustrod does not work. Everytime you tighten it it soon again has too much relief. Input jack need soldering and it buzzes ... so you end up putting a lot of work into it, but it's still kinda useless and you'll never get your money back due to all the flaws

    Behind my beard.
    Not at all.

    My Telecaster was present for all of my first marriage.

    The TDPRI censors automatically censored the word I wrote when I used the same spelling as you would for a female dog.
    Here's the BC Rich model I was talking about, which I'm sure y'all know-- Rich Bich...

    Didn't realise there was actually a song called All My Exes Live In Texas. Damn you George Strait, whoever you are.

    The best ideas are worth having twice.

    My Tele has lasted longer than either of my ex-wives. Just saying...

    Why would I sully the likes of this august company with the detritus of an ex like mine? Haven't we got enough concerns, such as struggling with the length of our cargos and the intonation prayers of the three saddle, not to mention the never ending debates of tube and tonewood vs. solid state and oil in paper capacitors?

    I mean just how sturdy do you think your feng shui is?

    Since 1983, I've had three wives.
    Since 1987, I've had one Telecaster.
    Hmmmm.
    It would appear that I am more compatible with a Tele.
    Duly noted!

    My wife's voice is like a Tele. Sharp, bright, and cuts through any mix.
