    I have decided that I have too many guitars but I love them all. I narrowed it down to selling one of two unusual telecasters. The issue wasn’t which one to sell, so much as how to not be haunted by regret afterwards.
    I FOUND THE SOLUTION!

    I sold the Black 2001 Nashville Powerbridge Telecaster at 6 o’clock this evening......
    And went out at 8.45 and bought a 1999 Nashville Powerbridge Telecaster in better condition for $225 less than I sold mine for.
    I sold a guitar and have no regrets........
    But I have too many guitars.

    Nice meta-flip! Congrats on a great looking Tele and successfully short circuiting the no win scenario of how to sell a guitar you like w/o regret! ;)

    My first tele was a '98 MiM Standard and I still kind of regret letting it go just a bit.

    Does not compute.... BZZZzzttt....

    It looks even better not sideways. Never had this problem before. No matter which way I orient the pictures they all post horizontally. Is that a server/ forum issue or am I having a mind melt and doing something wrong?

    think your telecaster is just oriented into landscape mode... when things warm up in your area, go play it outdoors. nice red on this git!

    The use of "too many" and "guitars" in one sentence is strictly forbidden. See Merriam-Webster, it's in there, I know it for sure!!!

    Put a chunky 12 radius neck with jumbo frets on it and you got something.

    I got two Fender guitars this week and the necks are SO SO different. The neck on my JMarr signature Jaguar feels like a tree trunk after playing the Tele. And the Tele feels like a toothpick after twenty minutes on the Jag. And both feel so odd after 26 years playing only Gretsch guitars!
