    After spending months looking at Teles and finally deciding I wanted a 52 AVRI or AV, I found a 2017 in excellent condition nearby at I think an excellent price. Last night I got everything in place and let the fellow know I'd like to come by today to look at the guitar. Today he replied he has to pull the ad and won't be available for a couple of weeks.

    I assume it's concerns over the Corona virus (he hasn't said what it is) which is perfectly understandable, so if it's not meant to be or if it takes a couple of weeks to get the guitar, that's fine. This morning I've been looking online at other 52 reissues in worse and in much worse shape. :(

    This will happen when it's supposed to. It took me several years to find my perfect Les Paul Sunburst Historic and that was well worth the wait.

    Those of you with 52 Reissue Teles, hug 'em a little closer tonight! :)

    Yeah, patience. Pretty soon you'll have all the choices you can stand.

    I know from experiences I’ve had over the (many) years. Every time you miss out on an opportunity, be it a job, guitar, gig or whatever, some where down the road it’ll present itself again if it’s right or something better will turn up.
