I want another guitar. I missed a used Vintera Road Worn '50s Tele, it went fast. $400 below retail.
There are a couple of Juniors available, a used one for $1360 or a demo for $1280 (US $.) So, 20% off for the demo.

There's some used/demo SG Juniors, too, but I haven't asked about prices on those. Oddly, Gibson sells them with a lightning bar bridge or uncompensated wraptail (It's more money, but that model is on sale for less than the lightning bar model right now.) I'd want the original wraptail as I already have an SG with a lightning bar.

I could just buy a new Road Worn '50s Tele. It depends on the SG Junior prices.

I already have a Squier VM Jazzmaster and an '18 Explorer. Even have a cheap Gretsch solid body. And a Strat-shaped Squier with a P-90. And a headless Steinberger Spirit. Not to mention a Melody Maker reissue with a lipstick tube pickup. Oh yeah, I have odd already.

Oddly, I don't have (or want) a real Strat :laugh2:

Ooooh! Just found an NOS 2019 ES-235 at an undisclosed location :) for the original Canadian list price of $2199 (~$1760 US.)
So tempted. I could sell ebony one for a bit more than I paid and take most of the sting out.

If I don't buy it tomorrow I'll link it. :)
With taxes it'll shake the shit out of $2500 CAD. Plus shipping. Don't really know if I want it bad enough.
If I do buy it, I'll have to sell my less than perfect one. And maybe the Standard Tele, too. Others ought to go, too.
