I just sold my Gretsch Brian Setzer Hot Rod guitar and it was my only store-bought guitar.  So now I have 5 electric guitars now, and they are all entirely Warmoth.  The options I have with Warmoth have spoiled me so other guitars always feel like I am making some compromise and not getting exactly what I want.

Haha, I know what you mean, I sold all 3 of my store-bought guitars, and I'm in the process of building my first Warmoth! (first of several!) I got tired of not having exactly what I wanted in my guitars!

I think about it everyday.  I have exactly one store-bought guitar left, my workhorse Gibson SG.  If the economy wasn't in the tank, and I thought I could get a reasonable price for it, I would have done it already, much as I love it.  I want another Warmoth!

If W built acoustics they would own me completely, unless they went the Taylor bolt-on approach. I do want a jazzbox though, I cruise ebay looking at epiphone elitists once in a while. Someday.

I've still got a couple of Ricks and an old yamaha acoustic.  I still have the ricks because of  sentimental value, and also because I don't have a W 12 string.  Yet.

I've still got 3 Jacksons, 3 Ibanez's, and a Gibson.  I've thought about selling the Gibson.

It was a great guitar, but I never played it.  I just never felt a bond with it.  Guitars are weird that way.  I have more of an emotional connection with them than any other possession.

Don't knock the bolt on acoustic designs, they are very solid and when you have to reset the neck in 20 years you'll be glad you have bolts and not a dovetail. LMI sells some great acoustic kits if you're ready to take the plunge.

Both Breedloves and Taylors sound terrible to me, actually - I don't know if it's the wood (I know it's partially the wood), or the bolt neck. Give me a Martin, Larrivee, Guild, or the rare good Gibson and day.

+1 on the Larrivee. But if we're going in that direction, Lowden (and their "budget" Avalon) guitars are freakin superb.

I agree about the sound of Taylors and Breedloves, but I don't blame it on the bolt-on neck. I have played wonderful bolt ons. I am not really sold on the Martin acoustic sounds either!

I sold my US Vintage '62 Strat that I had for 10 years.  I rarely played it after building my Warmoth Strat.  My Warmoth feels, plays, sounds, and (not so importantly) looks way better than my Fender ever did.  In fairness, I should mention that my Strat was a WELL played '90 model, and the frets were already a little worn when I bought it used.

As much as I like My 7 W builds, and those are all I play. I would love to have some Vintage or otherwise collectable valueble guitars.

The Brian Setzer Guitar sounds like one I might have kept. 

If W guitars went up in price, I'd build one a week  ie...I got a buddy with an original '64 strat worth $25,000 (or less now) maybe it's a '59, or 62, whatever, i don't remeber
