My Non-Fenders...

Figured I'd post my other junk...

Schecter C1+

It's just a fun guitar to play. Neck is fast, action is low, it's all around incredibly playable. DD pups are quite sufficient, tone is great, and of course I'm a huge fan of the aesthetics. Tested one out years ago, loved it then and still do. Tried out a Hellraiser, and for me personally, the C1+ just felt alot better. I've been playing a loooong time and this instrument plays just as good as a alot of guitars with much higher price tags.








1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom...bought this guitar in the late 80's when I was a teenager. Got a hookup on it from a collector. I've bought and sold countless guitars, but this one has been with me the longest. I'll never get rid of it. If my son chooses to play, it will eventually be his. According to it's serial number, it was born on February 1st, 1978 in Nashville, TN.









Just realized today is it's birthday!!

I would love to be able to tell you more about this next guitar, but I have no idea what it is, best guess is some sort of old Silvertone. It was given to me years ago by my grandfather (now 97 years old), who was friends with a couple local celebrity musicians, that are now deceased. Both played guitar on a televison show called the Hayloft Hoedown, and various other places around the country.

Original owner was Bernie Smith...seen here on the far left playing a guitar custom made for him by Gibson.



It then changed hands to his band mate and friend Shorty Chesser.



I'm guessing the guitar was made sometime in the 60's. I knew my grandfather bought it from Shorty, but didn't know when. Until I recently found this in the case...



So at least I know that my grandfather owned the guitar in 1968.

And here she is...

This is my 1978 LP Custom. I found it in a pawnshop, for what amounts to chump change now (it was the era of the hair bands and the superstrats).





And this is my Takamine GS330S

Here's a few of mine............

I have at least 34 guitars that are gig worthy but here's some of my favorites. The first is a Schecter "Diamond Series" which is close to the one you have. It has a pull pot on the tone control which is a coil tap and the action is very low with no buzzes.......

Here are some of my non Telecaster "bender" guitars, all equipped with Bigsby Palm Pedals.

The first is my '92 Sheraton with a "gold" BPP, it's the only gold one I've ever seen.........

Next is my Epiphone Casino with the standard "trapeze" BPP...

Next is my Epiphone Les Paul with a '72 vintage BPP installed....

Next is my Gibson SG with a BPP also

All of these Gibbys or Epi's have only a master volume and tone control wired in and all (except the Casino) have pull pots on the bottom for a phase switch and coil tap........JH in Va.
