    Now that is a serious collection - and just one section of it, I guess.

    I'd love to see what other gems you've got.

    Those XIIs look amazing all together like that! I'm speechless.





    I had to do a double check to ensure that some of mine are indeed offset guitars, and now have the green light. I love them all for many different reasons, there's something about the offset waist that makes them look and feel sexy, like a guitar posing contraposto...if not pulling off a Saturday Night Fever John Travolta disco move.

    A very spiffy Yamaha SGV-300. Barely offset waist (requires a ruler with mm increments to prove the fact), plays tricks on the eyes in the process. Such a unique sounding cheapo guitar, I presently have it strung up heavy and tuned down to C#.

    Well here's the VM Jazzmaster that I shouldn't have sold.
    [​IMG]

    And my modified (I replaced the pickguard and installed a Tune-o-matic bridge with rolling saddles, making it a much more stable guitar.) VM Jag. And the 1995 Vista series Jagmaster of which I have no regrets about letting go.
    [​IMG]

    And the self made Jag-Stang I ended up giving to a good friend of mine as a birthday present when he turned 40.
    [​IMG]

    That Jag is a keeper and I miss that Jazzmaster, it had a sound quality to it which I haven't found in any other guitar.

    Here's a project Aria 1723T:

    I have the pickups and everything else, but 2 pups need a rewind. Should be all buttoned up in a few months.

    whups, forgot this Telemaster project. Just waiting for more painting-friendly weather, soon to be home to a set of Bill Lawrence Keystones:

    Here is my '98 Fender Toronado. Love this guitar, especially the neck.
    I have plans to upgrade some to some pickups but haven't decided yet.

    My first good electric, bought from a hitchhiker around 1976 for $250 dollars. Did a few mods early on.

    Thanks.
    Not much to tell really, it's an alden quadrastar. They're pretty cheap although I'm not sure they still make them.
    Mine sounds great, one of the most versatile guitars I own.
    Not sure if mines an early version as it's different from others I've seen (mines has body and neck binding with a jag style tremolo while all the others seem to have rounded body edges and a bigsby).
    Never ran into anyone else that had one. ;-)

    Im a fan of the necks on these as well. Not a super slim neck, just enough meat on it and I love the pups.

    Mines getting switched to fezz parka wiring currently, Im gonna see how I like that.

    My '64 JM complete with shrunken guard. The back of the body is my avatar. Bought at Mandolin Bros. in '92 for $1,400. Average price then. I do have the original case and trem arm.

    Man what's more '70's than a modded Jag with the finish sanded off...bought off a HITCHHIKER. Please tell me you were in a van with shag carpet at the time!

    I need an offset intervention, here's another couple of offset projects that I recently bought:
    A very Jazzmaster-esque Zen-on:
    [​IMG]

    And a very Mosrite-ish mystery guitar:
