Would you buy the exact same guitar you already have but in a different color?

I have done just that.

I have two Epiphone Dots, one is a 98 Samic Korea, and the other is an 04 Unsung Korea model.

They sound completely different, even acoustically.

I also have two Squier SE's. One Black, one White.

My guess in them sounding different is that they have very different pickups than each other. I honestly can’t think of anything in their construction that would make a big difference in amplified tone.

I think these are the only two I have that would have been the same model when they were new

I bought them both used.

Of course we do this with Squiers ... but would you spend $1300 (tax and shipping) on a guitar you already have but in a different color? Identical specs ... but different color.

I want this guy ... but if the wife finds out that I picked this up instead of the dryer, I may be sleeping in a cot in my classroom.

Do you really need any of us to answer this question? You have to address your obsessing.

Eddie, I've done exactly this, more than once 😄

My excuse to myself was I wanted to keep them in different tunings.Lame, I know.

Although I guess there is some merit in the fact that one can quickly change guitars that feel the same but are in a different tuning.

Best excuse in the world. That's what I'm gonna tell my wife !!!

But honey, yes, they're the same guitar, but this one is standard E tuning and this one is drop D. I NEED IT !!!

I can just picture the convo:

Wife: don't have you another guitar like this?
Me: no, this is white, the other one is black.
Wife: but they're the same guitar?
Me: no, this is white, the other one is black.
Wife: do they sound the same?
Me: no, this is white, the other one is black.
