I just got done reading your amp edition, I bet your new neighbors got really confused when you got the guitars lol! I wonder if they knew that those black boxes where amps🤔

Cool!
Which guitar and amp would you choose, if you had to choose one of each?

Well, different tools for different jobs. If my next gig were with my punk rock and roll band, I would probably choose the Sovtek head and one of the big cabs (the Risson/Krashall 4x12, or the Marshall 4x10), probably with the TV Yellow LP Special.


For a lower-volume band, the little Super Champ XD is a great amp. Probably my most versatile guitars, that have both single coil and humbucker tones, would be the sunburst Telecaster Special, and the Peavey T-60.

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. !!!!!

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.

Of course. The problem for me is finding a room big enough. I no longer have access to one.

the lack of traffic would be reassuring at least.

In the woods
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!

Here's the shot with the guitars added (check the amps forum for the amp shot and list of what's what):

[IMG]



Back Row (L-R): Peavey T-40 bass, Fender Jazz Bass, MIJ Squier Precision Bass, Gibson Les Paul Studio Double Cutaway, DeArmond Jet Star, Gibson Les Paul Special, Rickenbacker 620, Gibson Les Paul Classic, Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet G5438, Epiphone Casino (with Bigsby, master volume, and other mods), Les Paul Special Double Cutaway, Hamer USA Special, Ovation Breadwinner, Gretsch Electromatic Special Jet G5255, Gibson SGJ.

Front Row (L-R): Epiphone Thunderbird bass, Aria 1720 bass (MIJ Mosrite copy), Epiphone Les Paul Special (setneck version), Fender Telecaster Special, Brownsville Choirboy, Fender Classic Series 50's Stratocaster, Squier Jagmaster II, 1960 Fender Duo-Sonic, Epiphone Les Paul Deluxe, Fender '52 Re-Issue Telecaster, Peavey T-60, Danelectro Hodad, Epiphone Wildkat.
That is one fine collection. Just curious, what year is your Epiphone Les Paul Deluxe?

Not enough teles!

Love that blue breadwinner and duo sonic

The 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. ;)

Nice. I have owned a lot of ovation solidbodies, but have never seen the blue (or white) Breadwinner in real life - I always see tan and black.

Wow. And here I'm getting ready to list four of my seven electrics on Reverb.

I hope you have adequate insurance.

(Realization that I'm now officially an old guy whose first thoughts are insurance, maintenance and storage, in that order)

Sweet! Where’s the signup sheet;)

Is that a factory color on the breadwinner? Don’t think I’ve ever seen a blue one
