KEEP THEM ALL! Play one at a time.
So hard...just so hard.
I’ve got strats with a Tele bridge pup and a humbucker in front...teles with the same configuration...standard teles...esquires...Les Paul Deluxe...Ibanez semi hollow body..
And can get a great sound and a night’s work out of all of them. Some days 8 wish I had just one guitar - eliminate the “what if” anxiety
I sat down one morning (this looks like those blues songs "I woke up this morning" ) and realised that during the last 20 years I played the same guitar 98,5% ot the time, the second one was 1% when I broke a string in a gig and the rest 0,5% were the other 6 guitars I had hanging around my house...
Sold everything but the two first ones... I couldn't be happier. If you are bonded with a guitar, just accept yourself, go on and play the hell out of that guitar
When sometimes I have the itch of any kind of guitar I ask a friend a favor and borrow one of those for a week. Usually the itch ends and I return the guitar, thank my friend, buy him some beers and keep on rocking mine. Last week I had a Flying V, last month a lap steel... one week is enough to know is not for me
... And now I want to try a Les Paul Special with P90s...
My sentiments exactly.
This is a very difficult situation. Are you a single feller.....or married? I will say keep all three. This decision is based on my personal experience as a married geezer. Mrs Accrington has a strict 3 guitars at any one time rule. I have three guitars....if I would like to get another guitar then I would have to move on one of the three so as to accommodate getting another. I'm after a Gretsch 6120...so either my Squier Tele Affinity...Gibson Les Paul 58 Blues Master or Ibanez Mikro bass has to go.
Yeah....I know what you're thinking...but I love my Affinity and Mikro bass!!!
For me one guitar is the correct number of guitars.
A single guitar can do it for me. The only limitation my Caballo has is the lack of a trem. So, I can't do some of the Hank Marvin stuff but, that's not the majority of what I do. I think a tele can be coaxed to make some of the sounds your other two can but, the humbucker ones can't do what the tele does. Best of luck.
A Tele-with-both-PUs sounds even somewhat acoustic when you roll back the volume (and you have a bleeder cap).
Neck-PU and s little twist on the tonepot gives you the jazz
P90? Install a Quarterpounder at the bridge (which I did).
fourth gear is your humbucker (and/or gainboost)
And everything in between and beyond is in your fingers
What a great guitar, and just a bit more reasonably priced (LOL). Don't knock a Special with HB's, though - at least it works for me...
Thank you guys!
I'll take all three and play one at a time.
You're asking on a Telecaster discussion page. What do you think we'd say?
Tele. But mod in a 4-way switch.
Sell the flying v and get a p90 guitar. That's all I would change.
I believe in one guitar...of each model...
Well it is TDPRI so I'd have to say keep the Tele.
I went this route. I sold all of my guitars except for my telecaster.
Sure I GAS for other guitars from time to time (frequenting this forum sure doesn’t help). I constantly feel I need a backup for gigs.
But then I pick up my only 1 and it makes the GAS go away. You could say I’m pretty darned happy with just the 1. I just keep an extra set of strings in my case and hope that nothing happens more than a broken string
I once considered thinning them down from 3 to 1, but I was convinced that I really should bring a backup when playing live. So I'm still at three. Single coil (telecaster), humbucker (Heritage H-140), and.... whatever (Gretsch Pro Jet with Filtertrons).
Those cover all the bases.
For only one guitar, I'm afraid to tell ya ...
Trade them all in for an acoustic.
I have ten... no, I think it’s eleven guitars. I like them all to some degree, including three Tele’s in various versions. But this will always be number one:
