    My wife's great. She won't let me sell guitars, just trade.

    Someone talk some sense into your brother...break it off.

    If he has to sell his gear, a divorce is in his future so what’s the point?

    Yup. My thoughts exactly. Must be young and in love (whipped, is probably a better term)..but regardless, whether it’s love or being whipped, these can be very strong motivators to the young mind. Sounds like a strained relationship headed for failure already. Of course I know none of these people, bit sitting here on my couch, this sounds like a nightmare.

    I wouldn’t be marrying anyone who thought my guitar hobby is childish.

    It’s OK. You can sell the guitar back to your brother at a profit when he hits midlife crisis and starts to buy guitars again.

    Oh dear. You may have a higher duty then.

    The ‘witch’ is perhaps a Freudian slip

    Keep all his ‘childish’ gear safe for him, for when he needs it again.

    You'll love the Fullerton tele.

    I bought an early '82 version of this guitar a couple of years back and it really is a great guitar. It has a neck date of May 12th 1982.

    I had read where Steve Cropper was supposedly over the moon with this model and claimed it to be better than some originals where he had experienced neck movement issues on certain teles. This was back when the Blues Brothers were a going concern. Hard to verify now, but I do have it documented in my notes on the guitar. (see July '82 issue - Musician magagazine)
