I'll get back to posting mine, in the mean time, anyone want to share.
do you want us playing them? or just pics of the instruments?
whoa, miami musician is multi-talented!
and handsome, too
Doesn't matter... I just wanted to check out people's stuff... and I really would like to see them playing them too... I like seeing people having fun
Harmonica, Ocarina, and I have no clue what that thing in the backround is, my sister brought it back for me from Peurto Rico.
Mandolin, always a nice thing to have around.
I also have a fife somewhere, though I can't play it.
here are my pictures of my didge,I don't have any pictures of my guitars,sorry
Here are mine
i'll post one of my new ibanez Gsr200 bass soon...
Olympia Tacoma OD-3
Squier Fender Strat Standard
'57 Goldtop Les Paul
It looks exactly like this one
Top is a '60 reissue... birdseye maple.... I've never liked a lot of flame like the '59s had with the cherry sunburst...
This is a neck that I made for a Fender Telecaster... I centered around my fretjob for this picture...
Myself... a year or so ago... 1967 Martin D-35 with L.R. Baggs para DI/pickup the world.
Guild JF30-12... I Keller Williamsized it since I took that picture and converted into a 10 string = sharper harmonics.
Sideshot, Guild JF30-12...
'74 Martin D-35 with stereo fraps.
'02 Fender Cyber-Twin...
I don't have a picture of my Fender Deluxe on here... I never play it anyway. I usually keep it tucked away in the closet. I have a couple fenders I never bothered to take pics of... an '03 Fender strat and a telecaster that is in pieces right now... has been for months now. Never got around to it. I have a korg, some harmonicas, a snare, a flute... other things like that. I'm mostly guitar focused.
i would kill for a strat
Wouldn't be much dying for, here. I'm more of a Gibson player... the only strats I would own are the clapton or buddy guy (the non made in mexico one) strats... for the midrange boost. The MIM strats are like... a half a step up from the squiers... they're a beginner's guitar who wants name brand stuff... 5 piece poplar bodies and loads of poly... yay... they still aren't going to make them with two or three piece alder or ash AND nitrocellulose unless you fork out $1500 for a custom shop resissue. Guitars have inflation too... I could probably build the same guitar as the custom shop to '57 specs for $1000, plus you would get custom things or pickups/humbuckers (meaning anything from seymour duncans, lindy fralin, fender, paul reed smith, gibson, rio grande, bill lawrence, dimarzio, torres, blackbacks...) and I could mod or anything and still get a few hundred profit out of it... I find a lot of joy in luthiery. Well... building to '57 specs is easy... but I'm into lots of PRS kind of things, except with strat bodies... not things based on les pauls with double cutaways. I'm not one to like Terry McInturff or Paul Reed Smith's guitars... too fancy for me. I'm more of a bare bones guitar player when it comes to stock things. I have a blender pot and a self-wound humbucker at the neck position in my les paul, but otherwise... I'm addicted to this stuff... my main guitar is that les paul.
I wouldn't say Strats are for beginners, some of the best players in the world use(d) them.... Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and SRV
here are my guitars
My P-bass copy (and my Marshall..and me of course.)
What do all of those people have in common as far as their strats go?
Every single strat those guys played was a two or three piece ash or alder body... all of them played models from the 50s to 70s, and Clapton and SRV had guitars that were mismatched...
I'm referring to the 5 to 8 piece poplar or basswood bodied things that fender tries to sell as strats as far as beginner guitars go.
Oooh.. Arlia, the middle looks like an old kay or harmony... I like the ones from the 40s-60s. They make for good blues and slide guitars.
here is mine.....1968 Gibson ES 335.
heres me with my ol ibanez RG. one day i'll be rocking an les paul...
