Precariously Balanced on a Piano should be the title of your next rekkid.



I usually have a pile to pick from in the Man Cave.

Here's a pile of red, white, and blue ones I had out for a 4th of July jam.

Very nice. But what happens when you want to play the blue PRS with the racing stripes?

Beautiful collection.
The MIJ guitars have been on my dream list for almost as long as I've been playing the guitar.
Unfortunately, the price of them is way beyond my current means.
I was fortunate to get into the lawsuit stuff before prices got unreasonable, late 90's, early 2000s. I have an SA2000 that I think is the best 335 I've played. I also had a Studio Lord/Les Paul copy that was pretty nice, which I traded for a Vox practice amp and a boss rv-3 pedal... I got wrecked in that deal based on today's values.

Gorgeous photo with some different and beautiful instruments from the usual suspects...
(Nice to see the Cutlass out front and centre - I have the cheap Sterling version right here by my desk!)

but please don't try this stunt again!
Thank you. I really like the Cutlass and the neck/build quality of Music Man. I played a Sterling one and it was good! I happened about my first Cutlass in a trade and was blown away by it, but for some reason agreed to sell it when someone asked if they could buy it off me. Then I got another one, with the Starry night finish and an ebony fretboard, and it was awesome but I sold it to fund getting the 339. I didn't regret it, but I missed it after. Then I happened across this one and don't plan on it going anywhere. By default, they come with an aluminum trem block, probably to keep weight down. But this guitar was very light, 7.1lbs, so adding weight wasn't a concern. There are not a lot of aftermarket parts for Music Man, but with a little machining, I was able to fit a brass trem block from an old Music Man Axis on it.

All my guitars are in cases except for the one I am currently playing. Sometimes maybe two would be out, but not normally.

Yes - I got very confused about the different models of the Sterling Cutlass until I realised there were two (at least...) Mine, (CT50) has the heavy trem block with locking tuners and alnico pickups and is Chinese built. They stopped selling that one and brought out a cheaper version (CT30) wth lighter metal parts and ceramic pickups etc - still a nice guitar, but not the same as the CT60. And then there is the shortscale version of the Cutlass! Anyway I'm happy with mine... and it's Seafoam Green!

I'm embarrassed to say these are the only 2 currently strung up and ready to go. I've got five others in various states, boy maybe I should make some time this weekend to get some guitars "down off the blocks and back on the road"

The room was getting a lot of sun, so I decided to take a photo. As I was trying to keep them from sliding, I kept thinking what a bad idea this was but for some reason persisted on with the plan. Same story as most mistakes in my life; saw the train wreck coming and just watched. In this case, though, disaster didn't strike and nothing fell over. I like the picture that came out of it, so I thought I'd share.

These are the guitars I've been keeping out on the rack lately. I try to have one tele, one strat, one LP, a semi-hollow 335-type, a jazz box, and an acoustic on my 7 guitar rack. I guess this set is a bit offbeat with the non-standard strat, tele, and LP.

'18 Music Man Cutlass RS
'86 G&L ASAT
'81 Yamaha SG 1000/1500
'17 Gibson ES-339 Memphis VOS
'96 Ibanez PM-100
'13 Martin 000-15SM

The 7th on the rack right now is Kala Ubass that didn't make the photo.

Which guitars do you keep out and handy?
Very cool 1996 Ibanez Pat Metheny PM-100 model. You don't see alot of these. The couple I played were really nice sounding and playing instruments.

I play my two guitars every day. A 2020 Mule steel tricone and a 1959 Rodebald Hoyer "Samba" acoustic archtop."
When not being played I keep them in their cases always.

No precarious balancing. But many guitars close at hand in a small space. A Bass VI, an Affinity HH Tele, a G&L Legacy, Epiphone LP Special P90, and a Yamaha acoustic are hiding.

The acoustics are in their cases... Bit too sticky for them to be out. I have 5 'high rotation' electrics and only 4 hangers! So there's usually one just laying around... Though I wouldn't dare leave one where the strat is!
