    Very nice collection of differently-shapped guitars.
    An Ovation Breadwinner would fit in there nicely.

    I'm a little light in the amp department, just a 15 watt Vox Pathfinder, and my new one, a 60 watt Boss Acoustic Singer Pro.

    The little Vox amp is a pawnshop purchase from so long ago that I don't remember which store I got it from or what it cost, but it has served me well.

    I'd have to 'go in' and do some re-designing of a Breadwinner before I would want one. Initially, I thought they were quite 'spacey' guitars, until I found out that they were originally shaped to resemble an 'axe', and not a sleek, retro-futuristic form. To my eye, it's body is too short in length as it is (being an axe blade rather than a Martian shuttlecraft), and I would lengthen it a bit to visually imply a more streamline appearance, add some speed lines and/or porthole vents, slap on a metal-looking plate somewhere, then two-tone it's paint finish.

    Maybe I'll take a shot at it, just for poops and giggles.

    You're ahead of me then, even I get tired of looking at them sometimes, but then, I'm constantly up to my eyeballs in the damn things.... obviously.

    We recently redid our front room. We barely used it the last 8 years, we had a spare bedroom made into a study with guitar and computer stuff and we spent all our time in there. Decided to convert the old study into a dining room and the front living room is now the study/hobby room.

    It's a much larger room, I have space to walk around with the guitar hooked up wirelessly and the amp sounds much better when your not right next to it. Doesn't have as much space for wall hangers though. We much prefer it to the old setup and actually use the front room the most now.

    They used to be, but now they're just regular non-flying ones.

    My 'row of amps' is pretty pathetic compared to my row(s) of guitars...

    Man, if you’re going to be light in the amp department, a Vox Pathfinder is a good one to be light with.

    Your guitars are really great! That looks like a fun room.

    The little Vox has served me well for a long time, found it in a pawnshop, might have paid $100 for it, maybe less.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. You are a true visionary, and artist. Your guitars are just amazing. Much respect.

    I take it you're single?

    Just curious, I couldn't see a married guy or someone with a live-in GF having all their gear in the living room, unless they're a guitarist as well.

    I like it myself.
