I am actually on the process of updating my small collection, adding/replacing guitars that remind me my guitar heros.
So I own a Telecaster AV52, next week I should get an AV64 in sunburst, a Squier VM 72 Tele Custom, an Ovation classical 1613 and a Folklore 1614 plus 2 epiphone masterbilt.
What I'd like to add are essentially two:
- the recently announced Fender Joe Strummer Esquire CS and
- Epiphone Casino
My spouse has been shopping a lot in antique/refin shops lately (and don't get me started on people repainting antique furniture instead of refinishing it correctly--I've already lost that argument) and I'm always scanning the stores for old guitars, knowing full well that Google has killed any chance of me happening upon an old guitar at an undervalued price ('Wait, it comes with a louspeaker I have in back, too!').I hold out hope that I'll find "grandpa's old guitar" at a garage sale, and when I open the case it will be an original Gibson Moderne that somehow escaped the saw in Kalamazoo.
We can all dream
