I finally have the cash and it's the perfect time to buy a dream guitar for myself. Everything just lines up. I am making a lot of money with a new gig I have and I'm in the midst of a major sell off of unused gear I've had. I figured I should spend part of my graduation gift plus the money I've made gigging to buy a real lifetime guitar before I go to college this fall. Currently my main guitar is a Dickey Betts SG that I LOVE. It's never leaving me. I also have an R7 and a P90 Les Paul. The SG is my main guitar but every time I pick up an early 60s SG I fall in love. A later sideways trem or Ebony block SG is my dream guitar and I've played a few so I can attest to the fact that vintage does make a difference to me and the necks in general are a little more to my liking than my Betts. My SG is as close as I've ever felt, but I still would love to grab a '61-'63 and now I can. However, I'm worried that having two SGs will be too redundant. However, every night I find myself taking time on stage to tune my SG back and forth between open E and standard because I play slide so much and much prefer playing it on my SG. Plus my LP is heavy so it gets picked up for about 3-5 songs per night out of 20-25. So from a working musician standpoint, another SG makes sense to leave on in open E (35-45% of the show). It's really only the TGP-brained "I want so many different guitars" part of me that thinks this is a bad idea. I know the SG is the best guitar for me and I have done everything from full bluegrass gigs with mine to pop/R&B stuff and of course the jam/rock stuff I play with it every night. Also my R7 might not be a "keeper." It's a great LP but I am not totally a Les Paul guy and I like to keep a spot open in my collection to rotate stuff in and out. So maybe I'll trade that for another 335 or something different eventually. Basically my question is this: do you think having two of basically the same guitar is worth it for a professional touring musician? Forget the price/worth/vintage argument- I know I want one and can get one, but I can't help but feel like I should collect a variety, but again that's coming from seeing huge collections of awesome forumite vintage stashes. The other option is to grab a reissue Trini Lopez and maybe another reissue SG by the way. I already have two amps that cover everything from Dumble cleans to blackface dirt to tweed/Marshall grind to smooth ODS high gain tones.
