Telecasters and Good Wine!
The buzz from a guitar will last much longer.
Both. Have the wine and enjoy the guitars!
A case lasts me about a month. (my wife doesn't drink). I don't pay more than about $12-14 for a bottle.
When I open a bottle, I immediately re-bottle 3/4 of it into three, 1-glass-size, mini bottles - right to the brim so no air gets involved. Then, I drink the remaining 1/4 bottle (one glass).
Often, I consume a second 1/4 bottle, that same evening. But sometimes not. The wine keeps in those mini bottles for days, with no noticeable degradation - due to no air being present in the mini bottles.
Typically, I have a Meyers's Dark Rum and OJ cocktail in the early evening. Then a glass or two of cab or zin during the rest of the evening. Once in a while, followed by a nightcap of scotch - either a Dewar's 12 year, JW Black Label, or an Islay.
As Mary See might have called it - "A happy habit." (Speaking of Mary See, I am WAY overdue for a batch of her dark chocolate almond delights!)
Guitar and rum
or Kentucky Bourbon
You have excellent taste!
I've got plenty of guitars.
But...that's only eight.
Are there more under the bed?
Two Strats are missing. The Les Paul.Jr is getting worked on. The Weissenborn is loaned to a friend. The Santa Cruz, Merrill, Brondel, Northwood, Stewart, and Classical are in cases.
I only drink a Miller Chill beer occasionally. So wine doesn't sit with me even though I am a descendant of Barossa Valley German winemakers who came here in the 1850s.
You people do realize what wine is made out of, don’t you? Rotten grapes!
I like grapes. I even like grapes that have dried out (raisins).
But once they have gone rotten, I draw the line.
I do like rotten cabbage though (sauerkraut).
When I was drinking, that case would have been gone in a week. A case of beer, two days tops. A fifth of whiskey, two days, but at my worst, one day. I liked to splurge on good stuff sometimes, so when I quit, it saved me a lot of money, and of course, it surely saved my life also.
I sure miss a glass of red with a steak though.
OK this is difficult, but since we're on the TDPRI it needs to be said.
Your lack of proper Telecasters with three saddle ash tray bridges suggests you have a wine problem.
There are good programs at Sweetwater, Guitar Center and Musicians friend.
No need to commit right away, drop in and talk with a guitar counselor and review your options for recovery.
Long term Telecaster deficiency can cause lasting health problems.
My Gibson nylon string and a nice Chianti Classico is a pretty good combo.
I’m pearls before swine. I can always find a bottle of good French, Italian or Chilean wine for reasonable prices. Yeah, I’ve had expensive wines; I honestly can’t tell from a good wine that doesn’t break the bank.
Why not not both?
or Midnight Wine.
I / We don't drink wine, so this is an easy choice.
That's a hard choice. I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to wine. Yes, there are many wonderful wines in the $50-100 range, but as a general rule I don't spend over $20 a bottle except for special occasions (I typically have 2-4 bottles a week however).
I have been very pleased with things from the Lodi Valley, as well as the Russian River Valley. Depending on your tastes, I would suggest Michael David Wineries. I can honestly say I haven't had a bad label from them, and their labels range from $11-25.
I just realized I'm rambling, but I guess what I'm trying to say, spend the $1200 on an awesome used tele and then look for more moderately priced wine, then enjoy the best of both worlds
You said you like it so that’s what I’d go for. I love cold sweet wine from a box in my fridge. There’s no accounting for taste. I don’t have any pointy headstocks but if that’s your thing...who am I to say it’s wrong. You love what you love and may never know why.
I don't drink a lot, but I do enjoy the good, free beer at the breweries and wineries when our band plays at one. More money for the guitar habit, then.
