Hey ug,

last week i got a fender highway 1 strat, and boy was it nice.

However, during this year at school, i know i'll have little to no time to play it and enjoy it at all, probably like a half hour a week.

I'm thinking that spending that much money and not even using it (or using it very very little) is a huge waste, and am considering selling it. I got it for a good price, and i think i can sell it without a terrible loss of money.

If if do keep it, it'll only serve as a distraction to anything else, and i DO have a vester as well, which will probably suffice for the little time i'll be playing this year.

So that's my question, sell?

I'm open to any other suggestions.

Well, if you need the money for something else, you can sell it. However, if you keep it, you can always play it when you have more free time

If you really need the money then selling it is an option,but a guitar of that caliber isn't a short term investment.Just because you wont be able to play it much this year doesn't mean that will hold true for the rest of your time as a musician.

Keep it. If you wanna get one later, its gonna hurt.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Guitar is not a distraction.....it's something you will be learning and enhancing yourself with the rest of your life. Video games and TV are distractions. Keep the guitar. If your priorities for it are there, you will find more than 30 min a week to play it. Take this from someone who went through school while maintaining many hobbies. You can make time for it otherwise you have issues with time management and probably waste too much time. Good luck

If you intend to quit guitar or really need the money, sell it. If not, keep it man. You've got a great guitar that will last a long time.

Keep it.

If you don't, you'll regret it.

A highway 1? That is a very high quality instrument, and you will possibly have it and use it for a VERY long time. Guitars of that quality are something that you stick with. You may not use it for now, but that is something you will end up still playing years from now. Keep it, you will regret selling it later.
