Nice

People ask "why do you have so many of the same thing". These three guitars are different as night and day in tone. All three have different pickups and different neck profiles. I have other guitars but these three are my prized possessions. Like Sixes said, you cant take it with you and a good Gibson is about like owning a good gun. If you shop it right when you purchase, you can every single penny of your money back if you need to sell.

Here is a Mexican Fender Telecaster I found in a pawn shop for dirt cheap. People say its uglier than sin but it sure plays and sounds incredible. the case alone is almost worth what I paid for it all.

Thanks Frank Pretty much I took a semester of guitar in 10th grade but slept through most of it I mostly just play rhythm guitar and leave the leads up to pals of mine that are much better. My gear is MUCH better than I am
