    I am not buying the final guitar thing...

    ...but I would recommend a Gretsch with Filtertrons.
    Listen to some music by Eilen Jewell and listen to Jerry Miller playing a Gretsch through a Deluxe Reverb.

    I'll second that. I recently bought a Revelation 335 and it's opened up a whole new world. The only semi-acoustic I own. Don't plan on buying another any time soon. But it's nice to have one.

    I can concur that it's very versatile and can cover a lot of different styles. But that's common knowledge anyway.

    Plus they look great!

    I also satisfied my 'what is missing in my guitar repertoire' lust, by buying a Jazzmaster copy as well by Revelation. Smaller bodied than the Fender ones, but still, does that something that the others don't do.

    It's Tele this and Tele that, day in day out, every day, and I love it. But sometimes, it's nice to have a bit of sanity in the form of another very different guitar. A 335 or a Jazzmaster will provide that for you. Get both!

    Then the sooner you can get back to your Telecaster, realising it really is the only guitar in the whole wide world you will ever need.

    It's ok, we all need to walk on the wild side a bit sometimes. Just makes it all the sweeter when we bring it back home.

    I have been interested in Gretsch but was told everything is made in Asia now even their higher end guitars. Is anyone here a Gretsch fan? Also how do the filtertrons compare to a humbucker?

    I'd say an Epiphone Casino, Epiphone Jr., or Epiphone Special. I think you need some P-90's on your collection.

    These are the one's I'd recommend.

    Oh, yeah, I read the 4-point list of guitars, and missed the Takamines.

    Lookit that. Not even one page into the thread, and half a day later, and forever is already down to "a looong time". Making progress! :lol:

    When you make it to "my last guitar for this week", I'll have some suggestions...

    Week's ending, chances are for me to even end the week without buying, so I'm making progress, as far as I can tell :)))

    I am sure nothing will ever replace my telly and for sure if I'll ever think about investing in a Custom Shop it will be a telly. But I like diversity, so I feel like experimenting a branch :D I'll look into jazzmaster also, thank you a lot.

    I think u right also...I've got just one P90 on my SG. The Epiphone Wildkat Koa looks extremely appealing, as a matter of facts...and I can replace the pups with a spare set of Kinman that is selling on local market. What do you say?

    How about an Ibanez John Scofield or George Benson model? Both would be great for blues and funk, soul and jazz. There are expensive japanese versions as well as more affordable ones made in China.

    I think that would work.

    You'd get your Semihollow and P-90's, so you'd have your bases covered.

    Epiphone Casino. Serious bang for the buck...and Im a Fender guy. One of the few guitars I regret selling and my get another at some point. If you have the money to go the vintage route, get a 60s Harmony. No modern guitar can touch those vintage DeArmond pickup IMO. Here are mine. The H75 is my favorite, killer guitar.

    Well...If you're thinking Epiphone, I tried one of these out recently at Guitar Center, I liked it. Nice part they are light.

    I like to buy guitars that are different from one another. A semi-hollow isn't all that different from a solidbody, so I'd go fully hollow. Whether you want to go the Gretsch route, the casino way or jazz box style is up to you :)

    The thing about the semi-hollow is the characteristic tone is the 24.75" scale length with humbuckers, so the Gretsch just a bit longer and with filtertrons isn't the exact sound, but still a sound, and a great one.
