    Last 10 years? I bought three packs of strings. I might put them on one of these days. I've been playing 40+ years. I acquired everything I need a long time ago.

    Less than 1500, all told.

    400 in amps
    800 in guitars (counting a freebie at retail value)
    A single multi effect unit
    One lonely boss pedal a cousin gave me long ago
    And a Dunlop cry baby

    What John neglected to mention is that he's the designer of all of them. So, in a way, he IS the George Jetson of the guitar world. :)

    Interesting exercise. I only have a few amps - couple of Mustang iiis, Gt100, Laney and a Mustang ii.

    Two Bajas, one solid Cab and a thinline Cab. A pair of old Squier Strats, an Obey Tele, a beaten up old Ibby Rg and a Tanglewood acoustic. Bar two all bought secondhand.

    Plus a handful of bits like Joyo pedals and leads. All probably worth about £3500 tops. Not too bad i guess.

    Dollar two ninety eight.

    I did pay $25 for my Wurlitzer 200A electric piano, though.

    I’m going to add these two Backlund guitars to my wish list and revise my estimate!

    Found them on Reverb.

    The orange/green guitar is a korea-manufactured model 700 Katalina by Eastwood. I don't know exactly how many of that model they made, but there probably isn't more than fifty of them in total, but again, I'm not sure. I believe that Eastwood is going to sell whatever they have left of them, and not offer any more. From what I've heard both the model 700 and model 1100 'Marz' are discontinued.

    Really hard to say because a lot of stuff I bought used, some are antiques, I built several myself, and have received several guitars as gifts. I keep a database for insurance purposes, and current replacement cost (replace gear I acquired used with used, gear I bought new with new) is about $25K. Of course the pareto principal applies.... the value of my top five guitars is more than the rest of my gear combined....

    Having been playing, and collecting, for 60 years, I have to wonder if you are asking what I originally paid or what the current values might be. Either way, it's enough to make me rethink my priorities.

    Hi John, thanks very much. I just discovered and love your designs because I think are works of art. They are also unlike any guitar I have in terms of scale length, fretboard radius, pickups, and aesthetics. Truly original and the fact that you can play them and they sound great is a bonus. At least in all the YouTube videos I’ve seen so far. I’m continuing my research on your instruments to figure out which is best for me but right now I’m leaning towards the Katalina. Cheers! Don Hall
