Anyone here play the guitar?

Over the years i have owned;

Yamaha g50a
Ibanez rg series 2228
ovation semi acoustic
gibson les paul standard


now i just have a classical i inherited from my great grandmother, i was told she bought it in 1942 for 40 pounds. it sounds unbelievable. and still have the ovation.

oh, and how many guitarists does it take to change a lightbulb?

10, 1 to get up and do it .... and the other 9 to say " hey, pass it here i can do that"

Thats a good one.

I have had over the past 5 years:

Ashton - Loved this to bits, gun metal grey!! Sold it....
Eclipse - Some trademe guitar with a floyd rose. Repainted it qhite and filled in the wholes to have 1 humbucker and no knobs.
ESP Custom Shop Eclipse-II (Les Paul shape) - It's in matt black with gold binding etc. Hand-made in japan and inspected in the U.S for blemishes before it was shipped to me directly... No other people test palying it or anything, nice and fresh. Awesome guitar best I have ever owned and most expensive (3.6k :S)

Got my Randall RG75 G3 amp, loud as and still can do the clean, classical stuff.

Also check out my band if your into metal - Chaos Theory - http://www.myspace.com/chaostheoryisawesome
We have one song up atm and we have a gig on Sunday so will have a few vids up.

Cheers.

I've currently got a crappy BC Rich Warlock for electrician work.

Acoustics? While I don't own any, I've got a dozen Martins I can pick up and play whenever the urge is there, including a $12,500 "Elvis" D28 :D

:)

been thinking tonight that i might just go down to 1 guitar for a while, therefore if anyone is interested i could be keen to swap my ovation for some forks for my SS.
forks would need to be something like pikes, reba's, maybe some argyle 302's, vans etc need to be 20mm.

if not il keep it. when plugged it, these guitars sound unreal.

Absolutely nothing - I hardly touch the thing. It's a Kerry King signature model though

Just a cheap Hondo classical these days with its bridge trimmed down as the neck is soooo warped.

My main Axe use to be an Ibanez RG570 when I use to shred and take trips to GIT in Hollywood. Hey has Joe Sat got his money out of Cold Play yet for ripping his music.

Yum, Ovation it is what Al Di Meola played and was what I wanted to play to be like him (like real good) when I was into it.

I've had a few guitars but I've always been a very limited ability player and very undisciplined at practising.

Sold my Yamaha classical I had for about 15 years this year. It was just sitting in the roof.
I got given it originally by the widow of a guy who used to play it lots and well.

Currently we have an Aston semi accustic with a cutaway that I bought because it looks really cool....and plays/sounds nice too.
We drag it down to play kids songs to the boys occasionally.

I also have an electric (brand escapes me) that is a Les Paul copy in black gloss and no scratch plate.
I bought it from a music shop near here about 15 years ago after driving to 9 music shops in parts of the city looking for an axe.
It was the last place I looked at and the closest to home. Not my most Green day!
Its on Trademe if anyone wants a good guitar for $280. (it has a then brand new hardcase too)

I began to learn guitar a while ago, just pissed around with a couple of mates. almost bought a cheap second hand telecaster, but then got poor after the two wheeled motorized and non-motorized beasts rolled in. unsure to this day to take my pissing around further and give it some real practice on a guitar of my own.

I've had a few guitars over the years.

1. Carlos jumbo acoustic
2. Vester Strat copy
3. Vester Telecaster
3. Ibanez semi-acoustic
4. Ibanez 70's Les Paul
5. Takamine semi-acoustic
6. Ibanez Talman
7. Fender Jazz Bass

I've sold (or had nicked) all of these bar the Takamine. The only guitar I regret selling is the Talman. That was a lovely guitar with a huge sound.

Example I found on teh interwebs:
