    ... all of a sudden can't shake the feeling that I absolutely need a Telecaster loaded with P90s.

    I need someone to talk me out of this. I have 8♧

    guitars which is 5 more than I need.

    I get it, in May I woke up one Saturday and said I need a Les Paul. I went to Sam Ash and bought a R8 that evening so I’m not going to be one to talk you out of it.

    You might not want to ask these people. They tend to encourage buying guitars.

    Give yourself a month's time.
    If you still want it, then you know what to do

    Well, I can help with the math.

    Eight guitars is actually one less than you need, as indicated by the formula: NGN = n + 1 where NGN is the Number of Guitars Needed and n is the number of guitars you currently have.

    So, applying this logic to your completely rational need for a Telecaster loaded with P90s, you really need to purchase this excellent guitar!

    Your assertion that having 8 guitars is 5 more than you need was disproven by Albert Collins Einstein in 1962. Eight guitars is actually one less than the number of guitars you need (see above formula).

    I hope this has helped you clear things up.

    Exactly! Once you start thinking clearly and logically, like this, the answer is really obvious.

    You must buy this guitar. To not, would be...well, wrong.

    3 is the accepted number for how many you need. The problem is the guitars you WANT.

    It would be easy for me; I've got 3 Tele's and I feel like that is 2 too many.
    I'm a Strat guy, but I also think EVERYONE should have at least one Tele.

    I hate when that happens.

    One must have at least 8 guitars for a square room to achieve proper and peaceful feng shui.

    If you buy one more you will need three more for inner peace.

    Gotta love P90s. They have a certain bark that nothing else equals.
    I don't have any in Tele bridge position but my Aerodyne has one for the neck.
    (Love P90s at the neck; have 'em there in 5 different guitars.)

    Closest thing to a P90 I've got at the bridge of a Tele is a Quarter Pound.
    It's loud & fat like a P90 yet it still has a fair amount of spank.
    Doesn't deliver the kind of snot and attitude that a P90 does.

    There's really no substitute for the real thing.

    You definitely need a Tele, especially one with P90s.

    Thought this was going to be a Nazareth thread.

    The question is which tele. I already have an American special. Are there any American teles that come with p90s that I can get for under 2000 used?

    Is one of the 5 a double humbucker guitar? If so, then swap them out for bucker size P-90's.
