Hi guys, been a long time, had to make a new account because it's been so long Just need some opinions on options I need to choose from. I have two Squier babies, a sweet Super Deluxe Daphne blue, and a Classic Vibe 50's Fiesta red. I bought both new, first the Deluxe, I think it was 279 dollars,. I just love my Squire deluxe neck. It is fat and just sits in my hand so well. It has wonderful rolled edges and cool curly grains that are unique. But red is my favorite color and I had to have that 50's CV Fiesta red. But, when I got the CV I just could not get used to that darn thin neck compared to my Deluxe neck, as well as not liking the old slot type tuners on the CV cause on stage I didn't like having to cut the string length to go down in that hole. So, I swapped the necks. I put my Deluxe neck on my CV and kept on trucking. I had my fav neck and my red body. I was a gigging musician raising 2 kids alone and I was a solo act using backing tracks and it was a meager existence but I got both kids raised. Later I got ill (another story) and stoped gigging about 5 years ago. But I just kept on playing and recording with my fav guitar neck on my red CV body. Here are my 2 babies. But I need to mention, yeah, at the time I was embarrassed using a Shirt live and, well, you know, I sanded off the Squier name on the headstock. Silly I know. Hm, tried to upload a pic but it looks like I have to have it on a separate site with a link. But anyway, the last few days I have been playing the deluxe with the CV neck and realize that playing while sitting and recording and such is much easier with the thin neck and another great thing is that the CV neck has hardly ever been used and has like zero fret wear, so it like playing a new neck. So just a while ago this morning I swapped both necks back to their original bodies. So, here is my situation. I have a new Monoprice Indio 66 Deluxe plus gold top les paul on the way right now, might be here tomorrow. I just don't really need 2 strats, the les paul, and I also have an Ibanez AG75 Jazz box as well plus a bass, an acoustic, and even a Ukulele. So I'm torn. You know what, I feel obligated to that great deluxe neck. She has done a lot of gigs with me over the years mounted on both bodies. I'll paste a yt link to a clip from one of my old gigs using the deluxe on stage before I bought the CV in a response to this thread cause Im doing this on my phone. But this deluxe neck has been my partner for many gigs. This neck has helped me make money for Christmas gifts to my children. I have paid many an electric bill with money made with this neck. And now I realized a few days ago that the frets are worn down and soon it will need a regret. It still plays well but the feta are low and I don't have the money to send it off somewhere and have it refretted, and of course the Squier name has been sanded off. But I OWE this neck, she has been there for many a gig with me. I could just sell the whole deluxe guitar, but I don't even see any Squier deluxes on eBay, maybe one white one the other day. And with the Squier name sanded off I probably couldn't get much out of it. I could buy an Xavier neck to go on it for 50 dollars and I would love to see that daphne blue body with a rosewood dark neck. That way I could use the original neck and maybe attempt a refret myself, but I would probably screw it up. If I take it off a just put it in the closet then someday when I kick the bucket my kids will probably toss it in a dumpster not even knowing that it contributed heavily to their upbringing, uhg, I hate the thought of that. I would love to see it go to someone who could refret it themselves and actually get her out gigging again like she deserves. I could keep her but I live in a 1 bedroom apartment and just don't have room for 6 guitars, my closet it stacked to the top now. I only do home recording now so I really don't need 2 strats (Though I do love the Duncan designed pups in this deluxe even though I have CS fat 50's in my CV strat. These DD pups are modern sounding and powerful with a huge clarity that I like for recording. Anyway, this is getting long so I will post it and then figure out how to post a pic and a vid link showing my old Daphne baby in action at a gig. Anyone else ever get attached to a guitar and actually feel obligated to it if it has been a partner for years and helped you pay bills and record and such?. Or are your guitars only inanimate objects to you?
