    I bought this Tele in 1981. It's a '74 Thinline. It's the greatest guitar I've ever played.

    Took me awhile to get the right bridge pu and bridge.
    Now, it's supreme.

    My 2005 Les Paul Standard. I had to sell my Les Paul as a college student in 1985- and it took me 21 years to get another !

    @ 1981 Hondo Deluxe 945, given to me by my daughters mother. I added the Bigsby and original '69 PAFs from a buddys' smashed SG, it's autographed by Dick Dale... and that's my brother on drums in the background.

    Here's another one that's fairly special. It was Robben Ford's "Red Lady" from the Tiger Walk album and the European tour. The hex nut snapped off the end of the truss rod during the tour so it can't be adjusted, so it was sold to a friend of mine in the UK and ended up here in Japan with me. Sorry for the lousy pics.

    Well here's mine. My 1986 MIK Squier Strat in Lake Placid Blue. It's the best guitar I've ever held in my hands. Who says cheap guitars aren't good guitars?

    79 Strat

    I have since converted it to 4 bolt, put a Warmoth neck on it and put a Dimarzio Air Norton S in the bridge and Area 61's in the mid and neck. I have had it since I was 14.

    It's going to be this one. The best sounding guitar I never tried.

    Mine would be this custom built John How ladder braced concert. Red spruce top, mahogany sides and back, brazilian rosewood bridge, fingerboard and headplate. Had it built just after my Dad passed, in honor of Dad.
