Hey folks, I'm a guitarist and have a huge amount of appreciation for the instrument and all of its beauty! Im hoping that all you guitarist out there will post pics of your prized instruments. Discussions about the instruments and equipment (amps, pedals etc.) used are welcomed and encouraged. :clap: Lastly, If you want to BUY/SELL/TRADE some of your guitar related gear and equipment, feel free to show us what you got!

Drummer's house; Hence the dog's playing cards...even worse, it's non-archival.

...and for the discussion it is a 1960 Gibson Melody Maker with a Lollar P90.
The amps are a 1957 Magnatone Troubadour 213 (drymounting awesome) and a 1965 Silvertone 1485 (Jack White's go to amp).

The Magnatone has a single 12" Alnico and the Silvertone has 6 10" Jensens.

First up: BLONDY

USA FENDER STRATOCASTER - 70's reissue. Comes with the fat 70's style headstock and tuner keys. 3 bolt neck-plate with micro tilt neck adjustment :notworthy: By far the best guitar I own.

Been playing for 12 years. It all started with my brother introducing me to Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was all downhill from there. I currently own a standard strat, schecter c-1 classic, peavey jf1ex hollow body, 7 acoustics, a few amps (including a Marshall half stack and an all tube peavey valve king 212) and various pedals.

I love guitars and have a great appreciation for them too. It's always good to find others who enjoy it as much as I do.

Here I am at a gig last year, with the Schecter. It was my first electric, got it when I was 14. I'll never let it go.

:shock: Amazing! The inlays on the neck are incredible. Like Vai's Ibanez Gem.... Im playing with the Peavey Valve King as well! That amp has such a thunderous sound. I have to play on level 2 at home b.c at level 3 the window will explode in the basement. Mind you, its hooked up to an additional 4 - 12 cab. 8)

Yeah, to a 14 year old kid that guitar was my holy grail. :lol:

It's a little flashy for my tastes now, but I still love the tone and the playability. Here's a Guild I sold last year..got it for a steal..still kicking myself for selling it. Talk about tone..this thing was a beauty. I like that strat by the way! I'm always partial to the rosewood fretboard, but with that color on the body it looks great.
