    Yesterday my simmering GAS (me as teenage high-schooler redux version) flared hot, and I found myself driving to San Antonio after throwing out a ridiculous low offer. Questioning the universe, you know, if it's meant to be, this will be a yes. And so it was.
    At long, long last, 18 year old me finally has a Jackson in his hands. I should hate the neck shape, so thin and flat. But I don't care. The headstock, the shark fins, I am mesmerized. And the body doesn't dig into my Tele Rib. (like that cares--there's not a live nerve ending in that whole region any more)
    It also made me realize that I'm now in a club I just invented, the Patriots colors. I now own a red, a white and a blue.
    Anyone else rocking America's colors?
    I want to see them!
    (Bonus pic of all four of my lovelies. I'm so fortunate! FOUR. Really. Superlative. Guitars.)

    And here I thought this was about an Eminence speaker...

    That's a sweet looking group of guitars! However, I have none of those colors at the moment.

    I feel like I can play anywhere from the Church to CBGB's, with a late set at Giddy Ups honky tonk.

    I was hoping to see a Buck Owens tele... man, I’d dig one of those!

    We had a band gig at a Wounded Warriors event at Walter Reed in DC back in 2005, so I built this for it because it seemed appropriate. It's a stained lightweight ash body, Warmoth '59 neck with 6100 SS frets and a set of Fender Nocaster pickups. Finished in a light coat of clear nitro.

    Here's a pic of two of each color. I don't have enough guitar stands for 'em all, so I threw 'em into a pile.

    I have a nice red, white and black set of Highway One strats. No blue though...

    I don't like coloured guitars, so no red and definitely no blue.
