All my axes sold for taxes.
Sounds like a country song.
I've come close to selling an axe to pay a bill a few years ago, but my wife, the keeper she is, talked me down. Made sure to never get there again. Knock, knock, knock on wood. You gave me a flash back. Don't do that.
Lol. Sorry for the flashback.
My X wife & I had an agreement. I don't spent house money (which was all money not made playing shows or selling guitars) on guitars & she'd never ask me to sell guitars to pay for house stuff.
One of us kept up our end.
I once again have too many guitars but my collection 10 years ago was pretty sweet. I had most of my dream guitars.
Now selling guitars when it's tight is no big deal. I view almost everything I have as temporary.
There are 2 guitars that are in all these pics & I still have. One is my 1990 Epi Emperor which I sold once & it came back to me about 7 years later. The other is my homemade 72 Tele Thinline. In the first pics it's just in pieces lying across the couch. I had a vinyl Fender decal but didn't feel right putting Fender on my guitar. Took the F off & flipped it around. Then it was a Lender Tele.
You do what you need to do. Family first - always.
Absolutely. Guitars come and go & there will always be another come down the line.
Though I've never been one of those guys, I know "in theory" a person can do almost anything with one good guitar. My best friend bought his P.R.S. in 97 I think. 99.9% of everything he's ever done since the day he got that guitar has been on that guitar. I've never found my unicorn, but my SG is pretty close. I thought Lucille was it, but shes gone & I survived just fine.
First build completed, today and my first Tele style guitar. Sounds better than I hoped for.
I've posted thes before , so excuse me if youve seen them already
That's an impressive collection! Why were they built backwards?
I keep pouring over this whole thread, over and over, oggling and drooling over the guitars - to the point my girlfriend thought I was up to no good on the internets.
(mutters to self "niiice curves, mmm... look at those F holes, ooo baby, sweet binding, I'll bet she sings reeall purdy.. )
I think in a past life I had the thoughts of opening a lefthanded guitar store

Fender Special Edition Sea Foam Pearl
Fender Player Tidepool
Fender American Standard Jade Pearl Metallic
Fender American Standard Mystic Red

I think that's it for the Fender six strings that I still have...
Thank you for coming down to the Starlight Room tonight, we're goin' to take a little break right now, but we'll be back soon!
nice collection I really like your candy apple strat & tele ,one of the guitars I always wanted was one of those (in lefty) with all black hardware and gold screws it would look soooo hot!
What a great thread, so many great axes and collections! Makes me feel that it would be OK to buy more
4 acoustics and these 4 electrics (thus far).
The LP has gib 490 pups, the white tele has a Fralin strat blues in the neck, Fender '52 in the bridge. Sea foam pearl tele has an SD phat cat in the neck, SD Alinico II pro in the bridge. Strat has Fender '65's.
So you would have a 6 6 6 collection?
Haven't done this for awhile; have made a few changes, mostly down sizing.
Logan custom, Peavey reactor (CO state flag), Squier CV and my #1 JB std.
LP studio, strat classic 50's player, SG from the 80's and Epi LP Jr.
Hot biscuits from oven
This one deserves a solo shot, still in serious honeymoon phase:
Gibson advanced jumbo.
A few miscellaneous
Ibanez bass, Takamine 12-string and Yamaha flattop from 70's.
My humble array
Im in love with that Surf Green tele, the first one looks cool. I have tidepool tele and i see you have standard mim too but arctic white, i have CARed and Maple
