    That's because now he is de-composing... But GH is right, there has to be a balance, or it is all just buzzing. For our ears and brains to really grasp melodic art, it needs to have time between notes, to allow us to process, to absorb...and digest, and react...listening is not the same as hearing...

    Tuck 'n' Roll Kustom FTW! What model is that? In high school, I had a K150 bass head (w. tremolo and reverb!) and a bandmaster bottom that I installed a pair of switchable piezo tweeters into. I took it to a car interior guy who did the tuck 'n' roll on it to match the head. I wired the piezos to an extra foot switch. Loudest amp I ever owned and ear-piercing too. Nailed that Creedence Clearwater tone. Really cool cast of players in those guitars too!

    Very nice collection!! But, dammit, now I feel inadequate...my axe collection in 2016...I've added a couple {an Applause fretless a/e bass, a D'Angelico 335 style and a Danelectro 12 string] and gave one [the Mahogany SG] away...I guess I need to do a new class photo, plus the amps, and the PA gear... the acoustics... yes, I have a thing for black guitars...

    I'm hunkered down and just sitting and strumming in my music room. Got enough guitars to keep me occupied though! I'm also building some partscasters to pass the time. Pics of a few below that I mocked up and will proceed assembling shortly. What are you guys doing to keep busy?

    Yeah its a cool piece I found at Home Goods one day in their clearance section. The "box" was painted semi-gloss gray and just didn't look right but I loved the multi-colored "tool box" look which are actually upper drawers and the bottom are door panels that open to an interior with shelves. The "tool boxes" were faux aged but the cabinet was oddly gloss painted and banged up … a bargain. I liked the way the colored "tool-boxes" went with a guitar painting I got a few years back by Sergio Lazo. He does a lot of abstract guitar acylic paintings and I had him paint a "one-off" for me of a Strat and Les Paul in earth tones. I recently refinished the cabinet after having painted it taupe as pictured. It had no character, so I faux aged it and painted in some simulated knots to look the part. Lazo Art

    Yeah, it's a mixed blessing. Certainly bringing families closer and rediscovering activities like board games and lots of together time. The Strat with the streaks in it is a 3 piece walnut body. Updated picture below is with a neck I hand picked for it, American walnut with a tigerwood fretboard. I gave the body a hand rubbed Danish oil finish and will use a satin lacguer on the neck. Debating about leaving the headstock in plain walnut or veneering with American walnut that has the blond streaks similar to the body.

    In my ongoing effort to stimulate our economy, 2 new purchases have arrived. Ibanez Artstar AM153QA in dark brown sunburst. What a guitar. Quilted/burl ash semi-hollow construction, 3 piece nyatoh/maple neck, beautifully rounded and polished fret ends, ebony fretboard, Super 58 pickups and series/split switching for the neck pickup. This guitar really rings my bell. I love the smaller body size and the fact that it has it's own distinctive shape rather than looking like a 2/3 sized 335 like the Gibson 339. The ash body makes it bright and dynamic and with the tone dialed back, it is smooth and creamy like an LP. What a great guitar. I've not owned or played an Artstar before, but I get it now. The second to arrive was a Michael Kelly Patriot Decree in Black Vapor finish. I have owned a couple of Michael Kelly Patriot Customs in the past but sold them thinking I had to have a Gibson Les Paul. Something about these guitars keeps me coming back though, and the Black Vapor finish pushed me over the edge. This guitar was a bargain. South Korean-flawless build quality, perfect setup out of the box and both LP (mahogany body and neck with maple cap) and Tele tones (coil splits and through body stringing) The pickups are very good and the coil splits have almost no volume drop so are perfectly usable. This is a very impressive guitar and it really is a joy to play.

    Might get worse for me. I' m after a Martin 00028. Don't know if I want the standard or the EC model. I heard both are awesome. I play more acoustic guitar these day, but when I plugs in have a small Yamaha THX 10 classic I plug into. The rest are classic tube amps. They might be Vintage, only cause I have been play pretty much daily for 45 plus years.We both have ages. I tell my wife, if could be worse. I could have collected wife's or Vintage cars. The guitar GAS is way easier on the pocket book.

    They say the bass line was a PPG Wave, plus the Prophet 5 for the synth brass sound. Thanks for the link!
