  • Family photo time (Post em if you got em)

    Very seldom I can get both sides of the family together in one place, the bolts and the set-necks I mean. Haven't had a family photo done in years but the price was right even if it was a cell phone the photographer was using. So without further adieu allow me to introduce you to the "eclectic electrics":

    Left to right, top to bottom: 1.Carlo Robelli 335 copy (Korea, estimated ten year old, no serial # even) - newest addition to the family, didn't break the bank and sings like a bird 2. Washburn P290 (Korea, 99 I think) - think loud and brassy 3. Gibson LP Studio Lite (US, 2000) - really versatile little guy with a ceramic in the neck and a mismatched JB in the bridge (call me Dr Frankenstein) 4. Hamer HB Special (US, 93) - Honduran mahogany, Brazilian board, warm and articulate, 5. Hamer Mirage II (US 98) Think Carlo Santana toneage here, 6. Fender Squier Series (MIM, Ensenada 98) - great little mod platform w/ steel block, GFS vintage pickups, poplar is an underrated tonewood, 7. Fender Squier Series (MIM Ensenada 93) - brass block, Pete Biltoft neck with Sensor Gold and Burgandy, middle and bridge, 8. Aria Pro II RS Bobcat (Japan Matsomuko, 83) - GFS vintage neck, stock middle, MIM screamin bridge, this baby would really surprise you, 9. Fender Standard (US 89) Custom Shop neck, GFS vintage middle and bridge, great all - purpose Strat with lots of shimmer, 10. Harmony H-19 (US 1960s) - obviously heavily hot-rodded, dynamic sounding little guit fiddle (Gretschy) that plays surprisingly well after upgrades 11. Washburn Bantam Bass (Korea, 2000?) - plays and sounds like, you know, a bass.
    L to R, T to B: Carlo Robelli 335, Washburn P290, Gibson LP Lite, Hamer HB Special, Hamer Mirage II, MIM Squier, MIM Fender, Aria Pro II RS Bobcat, American Fender, Harmony H19, Washburn Bantam Bass

    I don't own the SG or Strat anymore.



    I love my Lags, though. I'm hoping to get another HSS Strat later this year, but one of the plus tops. All of my electrics are black now.

      Lags huh? Can't say as I've heard of them, have to check em out. I agree that Black is very regal, and sorry if I covet your Ric.

        I can't really get everything into one picture, but here are most of the guitars I have been using lately.






        Here are some of what (I feel) are the cooler things I have. My tastes don't really jive with the HCEG crowd, but hey, this is the type of stuff I like.

        1959 Martin 00-21 (Brazilian back and sides):

              Dang BG, you got me droolin big time over here. I wish we were all kids and you invited me over to your house to play through your guitars. I dig those vintage pieces - love to find out what a 59 Martin sounds like for one.

              Are you on a mobile device, cause it was a snap for me. Didn't even have to find a host site to convert.
              I would like to find out how to post the big pics though instead of the thumbnail.

                    Thanks. Here is a mistake laden iPhone video I did a while back of it:

                    Here are a few of my other things I like:

                    Gibson Custom Shop Everly Brothers (#4/100 - according to Gibson EB got 1 and 2 and Sir Paul got 3).



                    Ed Roman Quicksilver with Korina back and neck:



                    1956 Gibson Les Paul (top) and 1959 Gibson Les Paul (headstock repair/overspray) bottom:




                    1960 Gibson Les Paul (January '60 with 1959 features) - no breaks or silliness:

                      Nothing new and it's too much work to dig everything out, although after I took this I found an Alvarez 12 string that I somehow forgot about.

                        @Siebert: Bitchen gits and pedalboard Amigo. I want your Gretsch, your Fender and your pedalboard. Any relation to a Stuart Siebert originally from Emerson NJ?

                        @Aramp: Humble, yeah right!!! I could do some serious damage with that set-up. Definitely digging the Fenders. My Man.

                        @BG: Audio file no workie Amigo. Diggin the hell out of the eye candy though. What are you a gazillionaire or something?

                        @gardo: X marks the spot. Maybe just try pulling them off the computer instead of a host site. I dunno?
