    I have this addiction to guitars mainly Tele types
    Anyway I was looking on gumtree and spotted this Ashton
    It looks like a single coil thin line but the body is solid not hollow
    The young dude wanted $100 so like a fool bought it
    Needs a good clean and new strings
    It’s at my mates place as I haven’t had the chance to sneak it home as the wife will hit the roof
    She doesn’t understand

    Ah yes.... I see you suffer from the same affliction I do ;) 100 bones??? No way to go wrong! Great looker! I'd have bought that one, and would also have had to sneak it in ;)

    You don't say? I don't think any of the rest of us would have a clue what that is all about! :lol: However, Mrs. Roadie understands how this works and rarely questions me as long as I stay out of our retirement savings to fund it, and as long as I don't ask her to help pay or make up for money I spent.

    Congratulations.
    I like it.
    If it's any good at all you can easily make a profit, if you are so inclined.

    It's a fact - you can not have too many teles or tele-like guitars, or guitars for that matter. I stopped counting teles at 7. I don't want to know how many I have!

    Serious. I have 2 hooks on my wall. All my guitars have cases. Some are in closets, some under beds. With 2 on the wall there are always 2 empty cases. So if I add a guitar it just fills a case. Guitar in a case is not another guitar. Get it?

    For $100.00 it was a no brainer. Nice addition to the collection.

    I had one of those once. Wikinson parts, decent, but I couldn't live with the offset body. And I wanted a different guitar, because the best guitar you own is the one that you're going to buy next, right?
