Separate names with a comma.
Lol, reminds me of our "wall wart" collection!
Apparently, I’m the “investor” in a lot of things around here. As long as I buy it, keep it up and running, fix what goes wrong, or have it in the closet, it’s open season on Dad! That’s alright tho, you can’t take it with you!
Certainly the financier.
Allright! Now that I found this thread, let me show off my stuff!
May as well show my amps and pedals too:
I like the Clay Smith SG. For a while I had a bass with a reflective Roadrunner on it.
@Glenguy Orig Guyatone! Uber cool! And your Renown is crazy clean.
I had a Guyatone like that when I played in a Rockabilly group back in 1991, but then I included it with an amp that I had traded. I kicked my self for that move for years until I found this one on Kijiji. I found that Renown in a pawnshop last summer. Normally I'm a tube guy, but this one sounded so good that had to have it. I do mods on some my guitars to make them sound better the way most of us mod our Mopars, lol
That's a cool collection of guitars and pedals. What are the two on the left. I can't read the names. And is that a B3 organ on the left? That's cool!
Organ is a ‘38 BC. Same as the B3 but no percussion and tremolo is a knob. Guitars are on floor ‘11 american telly, late 80’s casio mg-350 midi, and L-R Gretsch Corvette, A home made Gretsch Astro jet I made from a custom neck and an NOS body, Gretsch 5622 is the hollow body and the last one is an SG knock off I put dimarzios in and wired like Garcia’s tiger. Complete with perf board pre-amp and on board effects loop. It goes to the pedals at full volume and back in to the vol pot before the amp. It works ok, but I should re-wire some things as it is inconsistent.
That looks and sounds like some serious gigging stuff.
Here's my girl...
Tell us more, please!
Yes! Please tell us more. That's nice!
Also got two early 70's Fender stacks Bassman and Bandmaster plus a 50's Magnatone.
That's beautiful. Just the right amount of patina.
Holy smokes! How hard would it be to kill you in order to get that Lee Jackson amp? (just kidding) Seriously though...how do you like it and what styles are you playing through it? I'm jelly.
Thread revival alert! I've worked with my current boss for over 10 years and even transcended employers a while ago. He's really a great guy and most weeks buys the beer on Friday (well, up until you know...). He's also a musician and a few months ago he mentioned he didn't currently have a guitar but was thinking about getting a Tele. Since I've been pretty good about finding good $100 or less players I thought I'd look around and see what was out there. I'm not really a Tele guy, so that particular model has not been on my radar. Let me tell you, they are conspicuously absent from the used guitar market. Several trips around my local pawn shop circuit turned up nothing. Craigslist for the majority of the state was dry too. Only listings were $1000 and up MIA, or $450 off brand copies. I couldn't find any Squiers. None. The only thing remotely close was a used, bottom of the line Squier Bullet at Guitar Center in Oklahoma for $140 and $40 to ship to my local store. I'm not crazy about guitars through the mail. So, to shorten a somewhat long story- An ad popped op on CL that caught my eye. It's a 2016 G&L ASAT. Advertised for $250 with the caveat that it had been strung left handed with a hole drilled for the strap peg. $250 was pretty well over my budget but for those that don't know G&L is Leo Fender, when he decided to get back into making Guitars in the 80's (after selling Fender to CBS a decade earlier). It's "from the hand of the master" and arguably a real, modern Tele. Anyhow, it sat on CL for several weeks and I finally inquired about it. I ended up buying it for significantly less than the advertised price, and the PO even restrung it right and set the intonation! He must have known what he was doing as it plays sweet and has pretty darn low action without any buzz. The neck is a little more radiused than a vintage Tele and there's not as much twang (although there is some still there). I'm kind of becoming attached to it. I haven't played a single coil for some time, and it has a nice, creamy, wail to it. The neck pickup is a double coil that is just fine for crunchier stuff. Dang it, now I might have to look for one for myself. This is the "tribute", made in Malaysia version, but so far all I've read says that, like Fender/Squire prior to 1985, they are made on the same tooling as the US models just in a different factory (Cort) and with cheaper labor. My research also indicates that a good majority of Tele aficionados think these MIM ASATs are equal to or better than any Fender short of a Custom Shop. I'd rate it on par or slightly better than my 1984 Squier Strat, which was a great guitar, and way better than any modern Squier I've played recently. I may need to rethink my opinion of Cort, and play one next time I'm in a pawn shop.
Alvarez RD26L (left handed) and Breedlove Pursuit concert (also left handed). Put a set of Grover gold tuners on the Alvarez, and some cedar bridge pins to dress it up a bit. Both have real bone nuts and saddles. Mexican Telecaster is apart right now, I took the butterscotch finish off of it, stained it dark and sanded about half of that off for a sort of "weathered" look. It'll have bronze hardware and silenced pickups when I put it back together.
Your Mexican Telecaster has a finish similar to an overhead console i made for a 1974 Dodge van i had back in the late 70's. To get the desired finish, I took a propane touch and lightly burned it, then put a finish on it. I loved the look.
ok, i'll play, here's a couple of shots of me playing my gold top at a gig somewhere around 2002, these pics were convenient to find, i'll try to post up some other guitars that i have in the near future.....this is a nice way to pass the time with all this covid bs going around, thanks for the thread, i'm certainly enjoying it.... higgs View attachment 1715669822View attachment 1715669822
I love them les Paul's! I had a white one with ivory in the frets back im the day. It wasn't a Gibson it was a epiphone
i noticed you have a ibanez lp, i used to have one back in the late 70's, it was white with a maple neck, they called it a 59er deluxe, it played and sounded great!
here's a epiphone es-339 i purchased a few years back, she's a beauty, plays and sounds great! higgs
