New/Old - Just show us your Guitar

Bought a new guitar and don't know where to show it off.

Got an old minger that only you love.




Let's be having a look at your guitars.

Acoustics.
Basses.
Electrics.

Bit of background info would help the time pass.

I'll start it off with my first electric guitar.
A Westone Spectrum MX.
circa 1985.

The neck is very narrow and it weighs a ton.

This was given to me aged 9. I broke it during the punk era. Got it fixed-gave it back to dad-got it back after he passed away then the dog accidentally broke it again.
Donald J Tatem made it in’72.

If you can imagine a really bad guitar, looked after really badly, left in the garden, then repaired by a really poor tech - a Marlin is likely to be inferior. By a significant margin....
If only I knew this at the time.

In the UK way back when it was commonplace to order through a mail order catalogue and pay for the item over a period of months/years that's what I did when buying my first acoustic.

It's called a Marlin Seagull. Made in Korea.

This is what it was like before I asked a friend to paint it.

It was excruciating to play.
It sounded thin and quiet.
It is now an ornament.

Hmmm. The white one on the left looks like mine. It better not be missing when I get home. : )

In hindsight I would've got a Telecaster sooner.



This was a present from an old flame.
It survived the 'mishap' and still sounds pretty good for an inexpensive 12 string.

1988 Yamaha FG410-12



Ooopsie.



Mustn't be the only person to stamp on their guitar.

Posting mine in the order I got them.

1995 Stratocaster Plus.

If you bought it recently near Portland OR, it might be your guitar. I wasn't playing it much and sold it to fund this:

Here's my best Supro (I own 4, 3 are current models from Koltai.) This is the vintage one that has been through a lot of work and tweaking.

It's called a Supro Lexington.

I see them, with various pickup configurations and cosmetics, from time to time.

As a lot of vintage instruments have, value on these has started to climb in the past 5-10 years.

I got mine back when Jack White was just getting famous, before the big quirky-vintage bum-rush that eventually is what's current.

One of my lucky eBay finds/projects I guess. The other is a Guild Starfire II that has been through hell and back, but now is in top shape.

Yes, Jack has a lot of responsibility for disadvantaging average guitarists and making these collectable. Here in Aus prices went up from 200-400$AU to 1500-1800$AU.
Guild Starfire's are more expensive everywhere. I'll do a search for a Supro Lexington.
Thanks for the reply

Found a triple pickup one in Germany (1250$US !!) and a few single pickup ones in the US. Negotiation time :-)

I have to ask WHY. Why are these guitars expensive? A Starfire is a pretty good guitar, if I'm thinking of the right instrument, but some of these others? They sound super good, or something?

In the last few years I have seen quite a few guitarists (sorta famous) doing the "JackWhite" and "DanAuerbach". This immediately creates a demand.
I must say I am getting used to the Gold-foil sound. It has drawbacks but at full volume , with a bit of fuzz its great. Also gets you a nice jazz sound.
The ones without the GF pickups are just there for a cool look or a lo-fi sound. A bought a few recently and they get alot of use in the studio.

These two pretty much at the top of my heap.
Both have huge fat necks and a 12” radius.
Both run Virgil Arlos pickups..took many years to find them. Or they found me?

And I’ll add a late 60’s Gibson B25 - plays itself and sounds soooo good...
