> Sell your cousin and keep the guitar

Randy, that's the best advice I've heard yet. Am strongly considering it. How much will you give me for my cousin Cindy Lou? She is purty good-lookin'. Not too many miles on her, but definitely high maintenance.

SRVL, good luck with that 429 Torino Cobra! :P I hope you've got your own personal tanker truck to keep that beyotch gassed up. Good to hear from you man.

My yardstick now for cost of things is how many good old Turkish, Yugoslavian, Czechoslovakian, Russian-captured-and-refurbished German Mausers and Russian Mosin-Nagants I could pick up for the same $$. Right now they're in the same price range as bottom end First Act guitars, and if they were being made new today by the same methods as they originally were, probably would run $2000 or so. I'm starting to run into the same problem with them as with cheap guitars, though, there's not room for one of every variety here.

But there's definitely no room for a low-mileage, high-maintenance, secondhand wench. Multiple varieties of them don't go together as well as the old shootin' irons do.

This is tragic, Chilly.

I hope you can still find a way to hold onto it.

LMAO...dammit Rico, I just spit coffee all over the keyboard! :D

Sell your cousin and keep the guitar

Sage advice there, but probably not much chance of getting a bid from this board on 'ol Cindy Lou after Chilly's disclaimer (that and she's obviously crazy).

GOOD NEWS for all of you who commiserated with me when I originally started this thread: Uncle Charley is staying home and is now off the market. My crazy cousin Cindy finally came to her senses (with the help of a court settlement in her favor) and this '53 Tele will stay right here where it belongs. Thanks to all of you who sent positive vibrations my way on this board. I'm reasonably sure that your psychic energy at least helped to turn the tide, sway the guitar gods and pre-empt the departure of good old Uncle Charley.

Thanks for that, all of ya.

I just stumbled on this thread and it was really upsetting me until I found out you got to keep it. Yay!

Looks like I missed something along the way. Good for you that Uncle Charlie gets to stay home.
