    Well, some of you may recall, I just posted a NGD thread here for a CV Custom I picked up Labor Day. I made the mistake (maybe) of stopping off at the local Guitar Denter on the way to work the next day, and dammit, they had an older Fender Road Worn Tele on their used rack. I just bought a Tele, but I've been wanting one of these for a while, I have been looking for a RW for a while. I slept on it, and decided I couldn't let it go, so picked it up the next morning. Here's a shot of my Telecasters now - 2018 CV Custom, 1986 MIJ Tele, and the latest (by only two days!) 1998 Road Worn Telecaster:

    Oh, it gets better......I already had a 2013 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Collector's Choice #07 (John Shanks) purchased the week prior in the post, which arrived the day after I picked up the RW! I am now sitting here with three new guitars (I know, poor me LOL), and trying to give them all a little love................

    All done for now, out of room (and dough!)

    Well, that's a good start. But there are 20 more days in September, so you have raised our expectations pretty high...

    Thou has family'd well. Go forth now and AMPlify aplently. In fact, if you name your all amps Abby, you can have them mutually parent an ABY box. And lo, the cattle shall low, and rattle fattle and happy.

    (Bless my coffee.)

    Congrats!

    By the way, that's about the handsomest Road Worn I've ever seen, though a black pickguard would handsome it up even more.

    I just don't get why you'd thing that buying three is "out of control"?

    Nice. Enjoy them all.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one afflicted with this insidious disease.

    Thanks, but getting one in every colour is exactly what Fender and Gibson want you to do. I just have to.. re..sist!

    Yes, that's a very nice Road Worn. I may well have bought that one, too. Congrats!

    I'd be happy to help you out with the road worn if you need some coin back in your pocket. ;)

    Guitar goodness!

    I’m wondering if you will stay a 3 Tele family? The bigger question is: are there any reviews in store for us of these fine instruments? And, what does all that mean in the 2013 Gibson description?

    Don't tell us you own less than 10 guitars if you want sympathy. I would say you're off to a good start though.
