    I think I'm gonna bite the bullet for an R6. Been debating goldtops and P90's for a long time but I think it fills a gap in my current setup.

    With the way things are going, I'm not gonna be spending any money for a long long time... but it makes me feel good to keep nice things in mind and have something to look forward to when better days come.

    Eh.. probably a Tele of some sort. I’ve got a Les Paul, Strat and Paul Reed Smith. I think having the first ever production guitar in the collection is a good thing.

    I had just started discussions with a dealer - he has some new and vintage guitars I might be interested in; I have a couple he might be interested in. Had to put discussions on hold when this mishegas erupted. Have to see what's what when we can actually get together and have a palaver. That's what makes this stuff fun.

    Single P90 guitar. Not expensive - the PRS 1 would do nicely.

    Maybe a cheap tele I can experiment with the 5-string open G Keith thing.

    A hollow or semi hollow with factory Bigsby that will stay in tune with light\moderate vibrato use. Been looking for a while so I'm not holding my breath. Cockroaches will probably inherit the earth before I find one I want to own. No longing for anything else in quite some time.

    Well.... My Bilt Relevator should be just about ready - maybe in another week or so - if they aren’t forced to shut down before finishing it...

    After that, definitely a humbucker/p90/Filtertron Creston Tele style, painted by Sarah Ryan. Like this:

    Reminds one that life is short.
    Gonna finally spring for a Corona gtr, maybe run it thru a Corona chorus, take it to the gig in my old Corolla.

    I think maybe either a new neck or refret on a partscaster strat (thinking an American original 60s strat neck might be perfect for what I want out of that guitar).

    maybe some slot head tuners for a Thinline strat I have. I need them to fit in a modern fender tuner peg hole so I’d need to research that. It had locking tuners but they caused some neck dive because it’s so insanely light.

    Some Grover mini locking tuners for my explorer.

    but actual guitar wise... nothing... If anything this has made me more confident and satisfied with my stable. Even with the extra time, I jones to play the guitars I already own more than anything else.
    My Tele, 335 and LP are the three types of guitars that work best for me. And the three I have are exactly what I want (without going vintage, which just isn’t something I’m interested in doing).

    Then my sort of second tier are my thinline tele, explorer, strats, PRS Vela, and tele deluxe. All are basically exactly what I’d want as well. So that’s 9 guitars I love, and even playing a lot more, I don’t have time to play them each as much as I’d like. Every time I pick one up I just think “f#$k man, this is an incredible guitar.”

    I'm on the wait list for a Mule tricone, hoping it'll be ready sometime in September:

    I have my eye on something in the works and have first dibs. Hopefully, the timing will be right.
