    My name is Bob. Been following posts on this site for years. Playing in different worship bands for 17 years. Own 12 guitars or basses. Alternate between the two when the need arises. Have 3 Telecasters. All but two are Fenders. Thought it was time to finally join post. Long time member of the Strat talk site as well.

    Welcome......
    If you've been following this site for years, you already know pictures are STRONGLY encouraged. I assume when you said "All but two are Fenders" you meant all but two of the twelve......no? I've never visited the Strat Talk site, but my only Stratocaster hasn't been out of its case in the closet for ages.....;)

    I own a G&L 5 string bass. The two non fenders are both PRS’. The G&L is awesome. Have two precision’s, and one jazz.

    Did you miss the "12 guitars or basses" part? I did the first two times I skimmed it. LOL

    Welcome aboard and thanks for the photos! Many have stood where you now stand, although not everyone admits to hanging out at Strat Talk...it's ok, though, many strat players here and other flavors as well. Noticed that you did get off on the right foot by including your left? foot in some of the photos - that's a well established tradition.

    Good catch on the toes. I also have the same guitar twice. MIT grad I ain’t. Still have maybe six more to add to the photos.

    Welcome aboard, man I love that shell pink 50's bass!!

    And the G&L is sweet as well. I am also a bassist/guitarist/acoustic on our P&W team, what ever is needed.

    I got a Fender Strat Plus ( pictured ) which was a pawn shop absolute bargain. Middle pickup didn’t work and they gave it away practically. Also bought a PRS McCarty with two bum pickups for $400. Took it to Wild West guitars, changed pickups and got a setup. Now it’s awesome.

    I got that in a trade. Took it to Nordstrands and got a new pickup and setup. No one believes that it’s a Squier. Great inexpensive guitars

    Everyone should at least audition a G&L. Fabulous guitars/basses.
