    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.

    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.

    electricsMAR2019.jpg 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.
