    &quot;Guitar playing, as currently understood, has more to do with sports than it does to do with music. It's an Olympic challenge type of situation. The challenges are in the realm of speed, redundancy, choreography, and grooming... clouds of educated gnat-notes.&quot; <b>FZ</b><br />

      <div class="signaturecontainer">i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. &quot;It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.<br />

              I absolutely adore a finely aged flametop 59 LP or something very similar. Between the craftsmanship, the design, the aging, the flame, the perfect paint job etc....it is the be all end all for me.

                I buy only guitars that I think are beautiful as well as musical. So, of my collection, my favourites for pretty are the Greco (below, and in my avatar) and the Rickenbacker 330/12.





                If I were to list those I'd like to get hold of, it'd probably be this Martin, because it's classy and understated and rather reserved....



                and this Tele, because it isn't....



                That Greco is ridiculous.

                  I'm surprised to see so many Ricks. I thought they were an acquired taste, but HCEG folks do have good taste! Here's a 620 that's absolutely a blast to play. You'd think it would be bright with all of that maple, but you'd be wrong. It's closer to a Les Paul Jr. with P90's than you'd think!



                  And how 'bout its more modern cousin', the incredibly toneful 650 Dakota? What a looker!

                      • I don't think Ricks are an acquired taste. For a lot of us, they're some of the guitars that we associate with some of the coolest bands in the world, and they always sounded so good on those Ed Sullivan Show telecasts. They're pretty universally attractive.

                        The only thing that's acquired taste about a Rick is the amount of time it takes to acquire the funds to secure one.

                            Still haven't acquired that.

                            • Me neither. And if my dream Rick is a Susanna Hoffs model, it'll be a really long time before I can, although if I ever have the money for it, I will definitely buy it. I have to think that's a pretty secure investment guitar and will never drop in value.
