Which guitar and amp would you choose, if you had to choose one of each?
A Gainesville Police Department officer lives in the house directly across the street from the pictured driveway. His next-door neighbor is a recently retired sheriff's deputy. This street is only a block long and gets virtually no through traffic.I wouldn't do that simply because I think it's an invitation to get your house broken into. If my garage faced an alley maybe I'd do it.
I love your idea of group shots of guitars, amps etc.. I just fear taking all of them outside to sit on a concrete driveway. If I could create a group picture in a carpeted room where I don't have to worry so much about accidents...... would that be acceptable? P.S. The Hamer Special U.S.A. !!!!!
the lack of traffic would be reassuring at least.A Gainesville Police Department officer lives in the house directly across the street from the pictured driveway. His next-door neighbor is a recently retired sheriff's deputy. This street is only a block long and gets virtually no through traffic.
Not an issue.
That is one fine collection. Just curious, what year is your Epiphone Les Paul Deluxe?For about 8 years or so, the only physical grouping photo of "all" the electric gear (guitars/basses/amps/cabs) I had was one that I took on a Saturday in our old office library back in summer of 2012, before we wound up the firm. Of course, pieces come and go, so it wasn't accurate within a few years of that, if not sooner. But it's such a hassle to hunt everything down, put it all in one place, arrange it, photograph it, and then put it all back, that I couldn't be arsed to do it again. Plus, I've always done a "collage" type photo of the guitars, at least, which was very easy to update.
Anyhow, in 2020 I finally got round to dragging all the gear out on the driveway here at stately Casa Krashpad. It turned into a 2-day thing because I'd forgotten that I lent out a bass to one of my son's friends, and by the time he brought it over, it was dark, haha! But eventually it got done.
Of course, eventually I sold some stuff and bought some other stuff, but I resisted doing another "driveway grouping" simply because of the hassle factor. Until this last Saturday!

Love that blue breadwinner and duo sonic
Sweet! Where’s the signup sheetThe Breadwinner and Duo-Sonic are both the two oldest, and the two that I've had the longest.
For a long time, I had a third Telecaster, but I gave it to my rhythm guitarist in my main band, on his tenth anniversary as a member. Sorta like combat pay.
