    Down to just 5 guitars, 3 Fender’s and 2 Gibson’s.

    Recently sold or traded quite a few guitars and only regret selling one out of the bunch. Sellers remorse I guess.

    My two latest are the Bourbonburst Gibson 2010 Custom Shop Les Paul R8 and the Natural Oak 1978 Fender Stratocaster.

    What a coincidence. I was just having 5 x 7 pics made of all my builds. This is the insert card of thumbnails. There are 2 duplicates. I was surprised to see how many I had actually built since I started in 2011.

    True Story.
    It is Half of a '66 Doubleneck.

    The 12-string is attached to a Maple Burl Body.

    One fine day back in the mid 80's, I was walking through the Discount Barn and was rummaging through the Formica. I saw that Blue and was immediately Nauseated by it. I woulnd't go to the bathroom in a room with that color, let alone eat from it in my Kitchen.
    But a guitar????

    I found some Laminated Alder Butcher Block at the same store.
    The Pickguard is Engravers Stock for Nameplates like you would see at a Bank for a Teller.
    All told, less that $8.

    The Pups are from a company called High-A. Later, they changed their name to Bartolini.
    I dubbed it the "Flying Countertop".

    I designed it so it can only be played standing up.

    I won't kid you, it plays like greased lightning. It truly Rawks!

    As for the Doubleneck, I still have most of the bits and the original Hard shell case.
    It is VERY Heavy and top-heavy as well. Now matter what I did, the Head stocks always want to fall to the floor.
    if you play it sitting down, it cuts the circulation off in your Leg.

    I'm going to start with some teles, and then I will post some other ones.

    Below in order from traditional to weird:

    1. 2012 '52 AVRI
    2. Partscaster inspired by the '60s aesthetic, but spec wise really a Noacster.
    3. Parscaster - my take on mashing Fender parts in an unexpected ways - probably one of my favorite guitars I ever owned.

    3. The sticker of the girl wearing a bandana mask seems trendy nowadays, was placed when I made the guitar, some 3-4 years ago.

    That’s one fascinating bizarre instrument

    It kind of hurts the eye to look at, the way the body slants opposite/down from the neck

    It has never gone Gently in to the night.

    Once you strap it on and turn it up, you get the picture Loud and Clear! :)

    Some might say just one is just enough.

    I had one - in black - from about 1980 to 1992... I wish I still had it, I sold it for a laughably small amount of money for a stupid reason (= I had bought two other electric guitars - and who needs 3??!:oops::cry:).
    So when I saw the new Shergold Masqueraders coming out I was interested for sentimental reasons, I saw some good reviews, and then Anderton had a few heavily discounted so I took a chance. They don’t have much in common with the originals except the body shape, but they are nice guitars. Mine has taken the place of the Squier Strat which I had passed along to my daughter (one of the two guitars which had inspired me to sell the old Masquerader long ago!).

    How do you like the new Epiphone LP Custom? The headstock looks much better.
