A Gretsch Electromatic Duo Jet and a Gibson Historic R6.
My Ibanez jazz box.
She's getting a real workout this week, I predict.
I had a loaded pickguard on a strat, and it wasn’t a traditional set up, so I tore it out and replaced it with a traditional set up. Really misses using the pickups and set up I had, so I’ve purchased a different strat body and am using that pickguard. I’m super excited about it, just waiting on the trem now.
Yes. They had them in 2015 in the 3 single coil and 2 P90 version. The P90 version sold out fast so I ended up with the single coil version.
Classic Player Jazzmaster. I’m thinking of putting a Mastery bridge on it.
I just stripped all the parts off my old SG today. Gonna refinish it. Very excited.
Is anyone looking?
Ok it’s my US STD Tele. And my home built thinline, and my home built Tele custom.
Couple of years back I picked up a Jazzmaster, since which that has been my go to electric. Compounded the issue by picking up a Martin 000-18 earlier this year so currently my teles barely gat a look in...
My ES345 has been out of rotation much of the last few months. A Les Paul (with a speedknob just broken off... today’s fix) had stepped in for twin HB duties.
I gave the 345 a deep clean last week to get rid of 50 years of gunk from neck and fingerboard and now it’s like a great satin finish. Fixed a few rattles around the bridge area too and she is now solid as a rock and ready to make some serious noise again.
My Strats haven't had much use since I got Telecasters.... then those haven't had much use since I started building my own teles ....
then I started playing bass in a trio....
I have a Casino in a case I haven't opened since 2007.
I have an early Cort Les Paul copy that was a candidate for leaving retired life behind....until I started looking closer. Then I came to the conclusion I can put an instrument together for less money & about the same amount of effort, so I bought an SG kit from Stew Mac.
My 87 early Custom Shop Mary Kaye Strat. I've had it for 25 years and just don't play it much....then I get it out and it's wonderful. About time to take it for a spin again.
My Deusenberg StarPlayerTV once I'm in shape to play again, I'm only playing my best guitars and selling the rest!! Been babying these high end guitars, for far to long! Like leaving your favorite Hot Rod in the garage and never burning the tires off it!
I took ole blue out yesterday for a spin. She's been in her case for quite a while and it was time for her to breathe. I forgot how much I really dig this one and it's been with me the longest:
My Guild T-100 hasn’t seen the light of day for quite some time. It was my gigging guitar during the band years, and it was my first electric. Bought it for 200 smackers in ‘85. I’m into the acoustic thing now mostly, except when I drag out a lap steel.
That’s a cool guitar. I hope it sounds as good as it looks!
I pick up a different guitar every day and play it so they are all in the rotation. I’m not in a band. Just an armchair picker.
Despite having the single coil pickup, it has a surprisingly good sound. I can give it some treble and make it snarl, but it’s also good for blues, jazz, and rockabilly. Nice neck, great action. It was well maintained too. When I was gigging, I took it to a repair specialist every year or so to make sure it was set up correctly.
Got a few gigs with a friend who wants to cover some Byrds' tunes.
A good excuse to drag out my Epi Riviera 12 that has not seen a stage in almost 40 years.
Like this one from CME
I have a baker's dozen of guitars. Ten of them are on hangers in the living room. So they all get played at some point in a given month or so. Two of them (both teles) are on guitar stands behind my desk in my office/library/music room/man cave. They probably get the most consistent playing time of all my guitars. One is in it's guitar case.
And it's the one in the case that has the dubious honor of being the "most neglected." It is my Wechter Nashville a/e parlor.
There is a reason behind the neglect (or maybe it's just an excuse). As the name indicates, it is a high string/Nashville-tuned guitar. I have neither a 12-string nor mandolin nor Irish bouzouki, so when I do Irish folk/Celtic songs, I use the Wechter Nashville to approximate the high droning sounds those instruments produce. Consequently, it gets used most every March, and then only gets thought of 2-3 for the rest of the year. Of course, I could use it for more than just St. Patrick's Day gigs, but that's what most often happens. And sadly, it may not make a return to play (at least not to gigs, anyway) until next March.
