I had a fender 57 stratocaster reissue but sold that for $800 to buy a new bike frame. Dumbest thing I ever did!

Now I have a home built Totara telecaster and a Vester stage series Strat.

Im partly through building a Gibson SG copy, got the body done and the neck is next when I can find some mahogany.

and theres a epiphone acoustic floating around also.

cant play for shit though!

My Bike stable maybe lacking, but Guitars ... I've owned a few...
(I think the main reason is that my guitar habit came pre wife... unlike cycling which is post wife)

My Current Stable;
1979 Fender Strat
1983 Fender Tele
1995 Gibson SG
2001 Carvin 6 string bass guitar (Custom made)
2003 PRS Custom 24 - 10 top
2006 Takamine Santa Fe - TSF48C (Built in tube pre-amp)

I don't gig now... wife and baby knocked that on the head...
I play the accoustic Takamine the most. Although if I am gonna plug in the PRS is real nice. I don't do the Carvin justice as my bass playing is rather simplistic - but got it for a steal so said if I am gonna own a bass, why not a 6 string :D

Probably never sell any of these. Will be good for my kids one day!
Good thing is that I may get a bit rusty - but the music is always there when I pick it up again! Sort of like riding a bike ... lol

Yup - plugged into a nice PA with a bit of reverb... mmmm
It is the nicest instrument I own. For mine, you can't beat this guitar for live performance, the tube adds magic warmth.

i had the coolest Aria Les Paul copy back in the late 80's. sold it for practically nothing. would be worth a pile now.

currently have a nice acoustic, brand unknown, but metal stringed, good sound. its got a Mazzetta Balsalmic Vinegar sticker on the inside...
