  • I Thought I Was GAS Free......But

    Really I was. Quit looking at CL daily, haven't searched ebay except for old Volvo parts in months. Only buying strings as needed. I was very happy with my little collection of acoustic guitars. I thought I was cured until...............
    Some joker in the Jam group I play in three times a week thought it would be fun to have an electric night. So we did and it was a blast but it brought back my GAS for the dark side. Searching Telecasters, pedals, amps almost hourly. The recent posts from TAH and J. Chaos haven't helped either. I really want a 50's Esquire reissue or maybe a PRS SE semi-hollow or maybe both. A small tube amp would be great and I need a decent gig bag. I'm screwed.

    Get one of these. I have one put away for me at the local used guitar shop. I will be paying it off at the end of the month. It's a Squier Classic Vibe Tele in butterscotch blonde finish. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/TeleCV50BB

      Funny, that's exactly the guitar I was thinking about. I've heard good things about it and it's affordable.

        I managed to find mine used for $100 less then the new price w/gigbag. It was only a few weeks old when the previous owner brought into the used guitar shop to sell or trade. It's in mint condition. I tried it out and immediately put money down on it for layaway. Nice slim neck and fast maple fretboard. Pretty good pickups but I probably will swap the volume & tone control pots out for better ones since I am fussy about those. Other than that it's a sweet work-horse of a guitar. I'd highly suggest you try one. They even make a sunburst "custom" model with a rosewood fretboard if that is more to your taste.

          It'd be an easy one to do an Esquire conversion.

            Just get a Line 6 POD and plug your acoustic into it.

                That's what I was thinking. Cheap and easily reversible.

                  Get an Egnator Tweaker for the amp. When it comes to small affordable tube amps, it's basically got you covered.

                  As for a guitar. You might want to go with an archtop if you're an acoustic guy at heart. That way you can play it acoustically and get a little something out of it.

                    I say get it.


                    Bill, as of now, I have no desire for another guitar, but I know there's something out there with my personality ALL over it.
