    My only one at present. My longest tenured guitar. 1991 ASAT signature, bought new. All original except for a refret last year. I've painted the pickguard and switch cover many times. Today they're gold. IMG_0350.JPG

    Good stuff man. I normally don't like red guitars at all but that one is freaking stunning.

    Please show more of this one! Is that a rosewood neck?

    Yes. I bought the surf green new in 01/17 on line from a company called Woodland and Brass. I believe it was a limited edition run in 2016. When I asked the representative over the phone how many they had, he replied "over 50." Maybe it didn't sell that well? One piece rosewood neck, feels great.

    My two Partscasters.
    On the left, a 2007 Mexican Tele refinished to butterscotch blonde nitro and converted to an Esquire with one SD Little '59 pickup.
    On the right, a double bound tobacco burst body (manufacturer unknown) with a Warmoth rosewood neck and SD Little '59 and Vintage Stack pickups.

    Left to right
    1) Parts built Baritone Esquire
    2) G&L Tribute Bluesboy with TV Jones Magnitrons and a custom pickguard
    3) Custom Logan with Echopark Goldfoil pickup set
    4) Custom Logan with Seth Lover pickup set (built like an LP)
    5) Fender AV64
    I suppose I need to get them together for a formal family picture of good quality

    I've got these four workhorses at the present.

    All are gigged/rehearsed with regularly, though the Baja gets used the most

    Love me the butterscotch, just like mine but with a better grain. Nice shot.

    Here is the family as it currently stands.

    Across the back, L-R; Black MIM Standard as original. Sunburst MIM Classic 70's Custom again as original. Green(originally Black) MIM Classic 60's, reliced hardware, Bare Knuckle Brown Sugar pickups, MIM Maple neck. Schecter Diamond Series PT Fastback as original.

    Laid down - unknown source partscaster, may even be a kit guitar, needs a set up but plays and sounds ok, only cost £50 including a hard case.

    Front, L-R; Sunburst Fender American Deluxe body, bridge and control plate, fitted with a Mighty Mite V profile neck and Tonerider pickups. Prince style Tele, no headstock decal, but parts would indicate it to be the Harley Benton version, plays and sound good but a boat anchor. Black 80's MIJ Telecaster, neck has a Fender decal but unlikely to be Fender, fitted with tomerider pickups and a Red pickguard to create a Wilko Johnson Clone. James Burton Signature model (my first Tele) as original. Engraved body thinline ( with P90s and a block inlay rosewood neck I sourced from the USA.


    Over the next year or so it will reduce to just the four shown below;


    I have over thirty instruments. The others are rarely played, and the selection above cover most bases. I made my first sale at the weekend (MIJ Fender Power Jazz Bass Special), only another twenty or so to go.
