pictures of your guitars

Recommended Posts

Man you must have been super desperate to hear that pickup.

Even if i had no tools whatsoever, i would have waited until the next day and spent a few pounds on something more suited to the job.

Aslong as you're happy with it it doesn't matter i suppose, it's not like it's a carved maple top or anything.

I dont like the image of the Les Paul as i associate it with #### rock, slash, jimmy page, joe perry... plus they are heavy. I like to move about onstage and the Les Paul feels restricting. I had an old Ibanez Artist but that was even heavier than a Les Paul, amazing guitar though.

The neck on that Flying V is unreal, it is so effortless to play, even rythym guitarists shred on it! When i got it the owner had stripped it with nitro mors then used a heat gun, it was in a right mess. So i sanded it all down and refinished it with clear Danish oil (as it is nice mahogany, set-neck) then rubbed beeswax into it with fine wire wool. A similar finish to a Patrick Eggle model i once owned. I probably only get it out the case a dozen times a year though but hold onto it because of sentimental value, i got it around the time my daughter was born.

The Gordon Smith is also excellent as you would imagine being hand made, it looks just like a LP Junior. I'll post pics of them tomorrow. ;)

Incidently, that Patrick Eggle is the one guitar i regret selling the most. Another hand built instrument.

That V neck sounds good, even more so when you put some hard work into it.

The main reason I like the Les paul is that it was the first real guitar I played, in a school band a local musician lent us some gear, mine happened to be a 69 P90 loaded les paul gold top & a fender twin reverb, it was very heavy on 15 year old shoulders, but I was smitten.

I have drooled over the Patrick Eggle catalogue many times, if only I won the lottery !!!!

As much as I love Fenders there is something classy about the set neck, my dble cut's neck is slim & superb. Look forward to seeing those pics.

is that neck straight with an oil/beeswax finish?

i just want to clarify, before anyone else says the same thing.

its not a nice thing to do, its the right thing to do.

how the hell can we as a country can expect to get anywhere if we won't help eachother out.

/end rant/

but enough whoring for now.

Nice guitars man, how old are you?

It might be the lighting, but your 69 strat looks like it has a scalloped fretboard, has it?

Thanks a lot man!

I'm 22 and yeah it must be the lighting since it's not scalloped. Would be cool though! To be honest I think she needs some new frets...pretty bad to be honest.

I've never played a scalloped fretboard you know.

It's pretty silly really, not trying all the options and that, for all i know i could kick EVH's ass on one but i doubt it.

I'm going to try one the weekend see how it feels.

I tried Steve Vai signature Jem, it has upper frets scalloped, and for me they didnt feel way to different from usual fretboard.
