    I have several favorite guitars. This '61 Guild X-50 keeps rising up to the top. Sounds not quite like anything else I've played. Close to the old non-cutaway ES-125 in some ways. Through an old Polytone amp ... close to perfect.

    I now have a dozen guitars, and none of them is going anywhere. But my newest is my current "favorite," and is my go-to gigging electric of late: Logan Custom "Firecaster II."

    This is my second telecaster style guitar made from lumber (83 year old Long Leaf Pine) salvaged from our house fire in 2010. Basswood body core (chambered) with the edges stained dark walnut, top & back veneers of that Long Leaf Pine, rear mounted controls, Logan Custom stainless steel bridge plate, straight alignment pickup, 4-way switch, DiMarzio Twang Kings, vintage Kluson style tuners.

    Bizarrely, at the moment it's this one (why is the current build always the favorite?)

    Converted to lefty - necks and electrics reversed, humbuckers on the six, kept the dans on the 12 - shiny coach bolts filling in the old control holes as a stop gap

    This was supposed to be stage 1 to see if it would work, but may never get finished as its hard to put down

    Thank you.

    It was more of a thrill some years ago, with the first few designs, seeing them actually being made, but it loses it's 'glow' with time, and my interest in creating new guitars has tempered quite a bit in the past year or two.

    But! there is what there is of them, and many of them will be around long after I'm gone, which is something that I thought would never happen. It's a surreal thing to have, somehow, become a 'brand', even a rather obscure one.

    There is something very cool about knowing that when you're gone, something that was the product of your creativity will live on and inspire others in the future.

    I've been doing a lot of recording on acoustic lately so this one has been center stage.

    Now my favorite is my Gretsch G5420TG-59 “Marlana”
    My number one gigging guitar.
    She’s very different today than she was when I first bought her. 792759CF-DC8C-4896-8BC5-5B7868D6CD2B.jpeg

    Here’s a before and after pic

    The one on the left barely beats out the amazing Heritage.

    Hot rodded perfection

    The left little one is a Surfy Bear reverb kit with a short spring mounted in a cut down Squire SP 10 combo case. Then I wanted a multi fx in the loop in the Supersonic just to expand the palette without tying up floor space so I mounted a TC M100 in a matching box - both fit neatly on top of the 22 watt Fenders

    This very quickly became my number one since I won it here in the Annual Giveaway back in 2014!
    The compound radius of the neck makes this such a SMOOTH player and the pickups are to die for!
    Now since then I've purchased a AVRI 64 Tele and depending on my mood or whatever I vacillate between the two.
    But today, it's the Crook!

    THANK YOU, TDPRI!
