    I've been playing for 37 years.
    At times I've had multiples of each guitar, but never all 4 at the same time until now.

    Just the other day I scored a Brand New 2014 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro 2 60s neck for $43 after using my Thank You points from my Credit card on Amazon.
    One of the Best Les Pauls I've owned including many Custom Shops.

    I have a 2013 Gibson SG Standard. I think 2013 was the high point for SG Standards.

    I have a 2013 Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS, love having that Humbucker, makes it a very versatile guitar.

    Last, but not least, a 2013 Fender American Standard Telecaster. I am not a huge Tele fan, but it is nice having one in my arsenal when I am in a Tele mood.

    Last week I also purchased a cheapy Made in China Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS at Sam Ash. They did a complete set-up on it before I left the store. Believe it or not, I love it, just so fun to play.
    The pickups are OK, not great, but for practice at my shore home through a Roland Cube 40XL, it is great.
    If an impromptu
    jam session pops up down there, I could hold my own with that rig.

    At home I run through my Laney Cub12R and a few pedals or my other Roland Cube 40xl.

    Congrats and enjoy. Nice stable you have there.

    Just curious, don't you think you need a 335 to round it out? ;)

    Enjoy the feeling of hollow satisfaction. Soon you will realize that you need P90 versions of the Gibsons and a Cabronita to round out the Fenders. Then, there's the ES335, the electric 12-string, the double-neck electric sitar, etc.

    Nice rig, BTW. :)

    You'll always feel incomplete and hollow inside without a 335!!;)

    Thanks.
    I had a ES339 when they first came out, I just can't bond with a semi-hollow.
    Notice you don't see any acoustics either.

    Not a fan of P90s either, I don't hate them, just don't feel the need for them.

    The truth is I could probably just live with a Les Paul and a Strat, but the SG and Tele call out to me at times.
