I would be peeing myself if I could afford that many strings.

Wouldn't like a dozen high end guitars make due?

I have 3 electrics and 1 acoustic and consider myself so lucky.

You must not be married or your wife owns her own boutique.
You old misery! Anyone knows there is no such thing as too many guitars.
I got up to 159 about 10 years ago and finally signed myself into the Betty Fender clinic.
Now down to 8 guitars 3 basses and a few other stringed thingies like mandolas and a double bass...

1958 Gretsch 6120



Bought from EBAY in 1998. Seller didn't disclose the story on the color and fretboard markers (lack), looks like ebony wood. There is orange overspray seen inside the body. I had it refretted with med-jumbo stainless. Tone for days and days and days, just righteous.

My thoughts exactly, what a beautiful guitar and cool custom amp. One does not have to hear it to feel the tone.

Thanks Fellas ! That Warmoth build turned out really great , it's crazy light too , I think the body was like 3.2 lbs to begin with .It has a Dimarzio Blues in the neck for huge straty tones and a 36th anniv Diamrzio PAF in the bridge which has great crunch but also nice warm oldschool tones . I looked long and hard for the pups and I couldn't be happier with these , also has a "lynch" mod push/pull pot as a selector , very simple tone machine .The Rocket clone is a monster amp , stupid stupid loud and ballsy for a so called 30 watt .\m/

Electric? Most of the times I use to favor this one. A Hopf Saturn 63 made around '64 by Gustav Glassl for Hopf. A maid for all duties.



As acoustics I have some favs, but most of the times I play this outstanding cheapo. A '50s Cremona 465 made by Alfred Bräuer for the Cremona cooperative in the former Czechoslovakia. An impressive guitar.

I have 2 sets of strings and 4 guitars, how anyone has that kind of money is beyond me. I think would rather have a nice Corvette and just a few nice guitars. It all gets to be like a dragon after a while, a dragon hordes caches of gold & virgin damsels and cannot use either of them.

Here we go for me- the brown Strat on the right is my favourite. (the Plus on the left is a great guitar too)

My first 'decent' guitar - bought around 1993.

HRR Strat with Dimarzio Super 3 in bridge and Seymour '59 in neck. Basswood body is super resonant. The neck is gorgeous to play on- lovely big frets and really comfortable shape.

This picture was from a while ago- stringless as it was needing repair (cracked body around the bridge-post bushes). Was well pleased to get it working again.

Only real issue with it now is some creaking from the neck on extreme whammy abuse- puts it out of tune too. Not sure if it's the neck joint or something to do with the truss rod. Maybe I'll get it sorted or just enjoy moderate 'creamy' whammy vibrato...

The modern quality guitar is just such an amazing invention and a superb musical instrument for expression, unlike many instruments it can reflect the players emotion and touch to a degree I am not sure anything else matches.
We need to get guitar crazy going again like it was when I was a kid. Such a gift to be able to create music and use such an expressive instrument to channel it. I would love to be wealthy enough to promote guitar music studies in schools to get kids interested in real music again. Just not that camptown races open chord crap.

This age w the rap and such being what everyone listens to, seriously, Hendrix is spinning in his grave and I am sure I will be as well. I just do not get this form of "music" and I can appreciate anything that sounds good, that just does not sound good. My opinion obviously, I will suffer the burden of being right. What a different world. I grew up listening to Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Floyd, Jeff Beck, Clapton, God that was a cool era. Now a days no one plays an instrument and few with any sense of talent. That is not music to me, music is playing music on an instrument. I can't help but be sad they miss so much of what magic really was.

I'm not really sure that it is fair to compare classic rock wit hip hop/rap/whateveryouwanttocallit.

Good Hip Hop tells a story and the primary way of doing that is with the lyrics and the delivery of them. Sure the beat and hooks are there to add to it, but in this case, the rapper's voice and their choice of words are the expressive instrument.

Good expressive guitar playing makes me think of lead playing where the melodies and nuances of playing are conveying something in the absence of words.

Though I'm not a hip hop fan, I couldn't say one is more less valid than the other. It's just that rock music does a lot more for me.

So in the end, they are really different art forms and it's very much up to the listener as to what is more expressive/relevant..

I dont even consider "Hip Hop" music, I see it more like a "Commercial Sport".

Fair enough, but there's hip hop and there's hip hop. Like all genres, there's a lot of commercial nonsense and other rubbish that makes up 80% of what's out there and then there's some really good stuff that says something. It's just another way of getting a message across.

Nice guitars. I really like the Guild. I worked at Guild in Westerly in the late 80's.

Thanks, Pete! Yes, the Guild is a tone monster, fat as a butcher's dog, but light as a feather. I love it.
I was repairing guitars at a little ma and pa country music store, and an elderly guy brought it in, straight from under the bed, for a setup because he wanted to sell it. He bought it in 59. I'm it's second owner. I dig its faux ostridge-skin brown case.
