I still have to get a picture of my Squier and Acoustic on here. But! ever since I have picked up that Les Paul in guitar center, I have been addicted to guitars. Almost to the point where I have begged my teachers to let me bring in my guitar so I can practice during class when we arent doing anything.

 

One of my favorite paint jobs would have to be the midnight burst. Its on the Gibson SG as far as Ive looked. I think it was on a Jay Turser too but Im not entirely sure. Its just so beautiful.

 

Ive always told my girlfriend that the only guitar that could replace her was THE Jimmy Page 1959 Washed Cherry Burst Gibson Les Paul. It has to be signed, hand delivered, and have a certificate of authenticity all from Jimmy Page himself. Because he is my idol. Jimi Hendrix is god we have cleared that much up. You dont get much better than Jimi Hendrix. If you do, you probably have 4 arms to play the guitar. Ive always seen it like my top 10 guitarists are

 

1. Jimi Hendrix

2. Jimmy Page

3. Stevie Ray Vaughn

4. David Gilmour

5. John Paul Jones*

6. Tony Iommi

7. Keith Richards

8. Brian May

9. Eric Clapton

10. Pete Townshend

 

 

Now thats not really a particular order for the last 5 but the top 5 are garunteed. I understand John Paul Jones is a bassist. But he is a man who could play a 3 necked guitar and bass foot pedals all at the same time.

 

 

Well come and post your ravings here on guitars and guitarists.

sorry buddy but that aint no 75 D35. that does not look like its 30 years old, maybe 10 or 15 years old but no more. The early 60's D35's sell for 2,300 bucks which mean the finish on the guitar is not very good. so it cracks easily the guitar you posted from the view has no cracks at all. Sorry about being skeptical, but yeah

I'm too lazy to get a pic of mine on here, so I got a 2002 BC Rich Warlock, and an acoustic, my brother passed it down to me, and it's kinda old so I can't see the model, but the make is a Harmony.

Heh. Totally forgot about the best instruments in my collection.

From left to right:

 

30+ year old spanish sanchez classical acoustic guitar. Valued at over $1000 USD

 

30+ year old barney kessal style acoustic-electric. Valued at over $1500 USD.

 

60+ year old German balalaika (sp). Value not known.

 

One day, I went into my basement, to find the first two beauties. I asked my dad about them, and apparently they were his when he was 14-16 yeard old, then he put them into storage.

 

The balalaika was taken by my aunt from Germany to the USA during WWII. I don't think the strings have been replaced for 30 years.

 

 

And yes seether, it is a PRS.

Sorry, but yeah it is. My dad bought it back in '75 when his old guitar (d29, forget the year) was stolen, and since then both him and I have taken extremely good care of it.

i don't have a lot of money like just about all of the other guitarists at my school so i have cheap guitars and get a lot of stick for it. but it's not what guitar you have, it's how well you play it. half of these clowns strut about with their gibson les pauls and marshall stacks when they can't even play bar chords. my whole guitar collection(including amps and my amp simulator) cost about £1000. but i strethced the thousand as far as i could.

 

i've got a marshal MG series 15 watt amp. a V-amp2 amp simulator. a westfield strat copy(black with white scratchplate), a vintage SG copy, a [peavey milestone 3 bass(looks like a p-bass), an antaria? jazzmaster copy, a steel strung acoustic that i use for slide playing but the label was worn off when i got it and a spanish guitar i found in my attic made by bronda? i'm saving up for a telecaster type guitar

 

i didn't buy them all in one go though. the westfield may be a cheap guitar(£50) but if you take some time to set it up right and play it the right way, that thing can sing like a bird. i could go on to describe every guitar i have because they're all perfect but i wont waste your time.

All that for $1000? Damn, I got ripped. I paid $300 for a starter set Warlock. What I really want though is a Angus Young Gibson SG, or one of those Les Paul's the guitarist from Aerosmith used in Wayne's World 2.

the wood is in amazing condition, that is why Im skepticle and and it looks like the finish is still in perfect condition. All Im saying is that it is just about impossible too keep a guitar that old for so long and still have a perfect finish

Well we try our best to keep it in good condition, keep it out of too much humidity and keep it at the right temperature and stuff. I always wash my hands at least once before I play it, and I never let anybody else play it unless they know what they're doing. Call it obsessive, but when you've got something as beautiful as that, you're allowed to be.

i just got the warlock not long ago, when i was using the back pack function of the case the warlock fell out from the bottom of the bag and now it has major dents and major chips on the neck, and body. I'm going to get a new one for free because of my waranty and that it was the manufactures (sp?) problem not mine. ALso the black stratocaster is "flada" not fender. Its this bootleg thingy that is alright. GOt it for 80usd, someone wants to buy it off of me for $120 the way it is. I used it for like 1/2 years and the guys like 150? no way, 120... heheheh so i make a 40$ profit biggrin.gif

Nice guitars. There are two things I dont like about the BC Rich is that I have never really found a comfortable sitting position for it (that and the Gibson Flying V) so that kinda bugs me but nothing like standing up. Second thing being that I just cant get into playing one for a long period of time. Im not sure why.

 

OOOOOOO.... how could have I forgot Mr. Bass? (pronounced like the fish bass) My friend who lives up in Boise has about 35-38 CUSTOM HAND MADE guitars that he got for about 1/4 of the original price. Bolin Guitars (custom shop up here) has some nice axes that he picks up for fractions because he knows everyone there. He has a 2003 Gibson Les Paul, handmade, and its got kind of a cheese paint scheme. I dont know how to describe it better. He picked it up for about 2000. He also had some sort of a surf green stratocaster that probably gave him a good run for his age but holy lord or any religion did it sing. He also had a G&L Comanche. You ever seen one of those? Oh lordy lord its badass. He makes his own pickups, well... not make, but modifies them himself. He is a very accomplished guitarist.

 

 

Nice axes you guys, keep them coming. I'll get mine up sometime.

yeah, the Flying V too, that thing was just yeah... I think part of playing guitar is how comfortable you are when you start playing it, I kinda like standing up because that way I can train myself to learn different ways to see if that increases my productivity

 

 

What's your guys' favorite technique? (hammer on, pull off, bend, slide, etc..)

 

I like bending and hammer ons. Not too good at pull offs yet but I havent really gotten into them that much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

oh god I just farted. It was almost able to register on the Richter scale
