This thread is giving me gas really bad...
lol thx man... Neil Sargent is a legendary luthier here in Houston and he recently started his own line of custom guitars. Neil has been fixing my guitars for over 20 years.. we came up with this design, he built it for me last year, it is an amazing hand built incredible guitar...
You can find Neil on Facebook, give him a call, he'd love to make you a custom guitar, for a price you will not believe. Have fun...
That is full on awesome. Flamed top, recessed bridge, resonator port and all. My oldest guitar from my pre Tele hair metal days is a Robin from Rockin Robin. I bought it when my band was playing the old Cardi's on Westheimer down in your neck of the woods.
I keep most of the guitars in cases. We have an 80 pound older dog who still behaves like a happy puppy (he wags and bangs his butt into everything).
I spend a lot of time in this room.
My gig rig is the Blackstar 20 watt head and two Avatar cabs that are in the back corner. My rig is either Z with the pedalboard on that of the room.
Nice set up!
I own one electric guitar and one amp and no pedals. Since my rig is at the rehearsal studio all I have are these pics...
I use one of these amps....
Here is my guitar...a Vantek Tele copy made in Korea.
Plus a Morpheus on the way....
TUCK AND ROLL, y'all!
My brother's first "real" amp back in 1982 (he was 13, I was 12) was a blue sparkle Kustom Stack (a little smaller than yours) we got at a local pawn shop. Killer trem but SO HEAVY.
It finally gave up the ghost when we knocked it over during a Who-style BOMP-BOMP-BOMP ending while doing Summertime Blues (we were VERY into Live at Leeds).
Just hung up all the hooks in the living room for my guitars.
From left to right.
- MIM Telecaster, pretty much stock except the neck pickup and a Barden Bridge.
- Partscaster aka Bananacaster.
- Samick. My very first electric guitar. I tried to play it last week after years leaving untouched, it sounded so awful, I probably won't touch it for another few years to come, but I'll never sell it .
- Ibanez JS100: my 18th birthday guitar. I learned some pretty wild stuff on this guitar . When I bought it, I even didn't know Joe Satriani. Still remember listening to one of his albums (Crystal Planet) for the first time. At first I could'nt even listen to it . It defined my music taste for a long time. Also got into Steve Vai. Even though I don't play this one anymore, it's got a lot of emotional value to me. It was my first proper guitar which didn't sound like cr@p.
- My recent most guitar and the one I'm in love with for the moment: Fender Custom Shop Danny Gatton signature. Needless to say, this one is stock
- My first MIM which I modded to be a Danny Gatton Tele. It's got a Barden Bridge, Barden pickups but unfortunately I reliced it a bit too profoundly. The neck joint is broken and so are the Bardens PUP's, but well, got a ton of good memories on this guitar! I played this one for the biggest part I was in a soul-band. Maybe some day I'll fix it again.
Not in the picture:
- Ovation, I don't know which model but it's a basic one.
- Ibanez Jem V-BK77: I sold it a few years ago . After having bought the white MIM and having modded it, I no longer played it. On top, the middle pickup always got in the way of my pick and/or other right hand fingers.
- Vox Night Train
- Fender 112 plus something amp
- Marshall ValveState s80
- some pedals.
