Nice !

If my son would ever return the dozen or so guitars he "borrowed", I might get to see them once in a while. But my "go to" guitars are 2. One, a "like showroom new" 1973 Gibson L6-S in tobacco sunburst and the other a 2000 Am Std strat, black with maple neck that I finally set up like I wanted it.

Currently rebuilding/restoring my 1962 Fender duosonic. I havent seen my SG's or Les Pauls in years. But the L6-s never leaves me. I told him he can have it after I'm dead. Not a real fan of Les Pauls due to their weight. I get almost the same sustain from the L6 and much better neck action. I would like one of my SGs back though.... None of my LPs are rare, btw. Just bargain prices, so I bought them. Currently looking for a nice old Tele...maybe 62-64 or so....for under 10K. You name it, I've probably owned it and sold it. I still go back to that small necked L6. Good guitars are decent investments if you know where to flip them. I was offered $8K for my L6...and laughed. You can buy them (1974-75 models) on ebay all day long for 350-1000. But I've never seen this one for sale anywhere...so it stays.

2007 5.7 Hemi, Ltd. QD II -
1997 ZJ, 4,0 select trac, Up country, track lok.

I somehow lost the pictures in another thread so I'll re-post them here.











The maple neck strat I just rebuilt with lace hot gold pickups and 40db on board boost.

Yup. I'm stuck being a lefty. A real PITA finding quality though I got a pretty good source now. My son keeps trying to pick up the guitar lefty even though he's righty. I try to tell him don't, but I don't think he'll stick with it anyway. I'm into blues based jam bands like Cream, Mountain, and Hot Tuna, but I listen to about anything. I play mostly acoustic now. I like the Piedmont players like Blind Blake, Rev Gary Davis, and Blind boy Fuller and traditional Americana like Doc Watson and Tony Rice. I'd give a list of my favorite guitarists but I probably couldn't get it below 30 people. How about you.

Yeah... yer kind of there Mountain I liked but I'm more a classic rock man, A huge Thin Lizzy fan (and just returned from a long break at Dublin, met Phils Mum, saw his statue..) Def Leppard, Gary Moore, Whitesnake, AC/DC and so on..I would encourage him (yer son that is) rather than restrict him, I sometimes wished now I was a lefty rather than a righty as I feel my dexterity is far better in my right hand than my left but I wanted to be traditional so automatically went righty - and found it harder to play Lols! Nothing like handicapping your self ;-)

Well, I don't restrict my son, I try to guide him. However, at 22 years old, if he hasn't made much effort by now, he's not really serious. In his high school, if you're in the honors program, you're forced to play in the school band. He flat out told me that just created resentment to ever trying to learn to play music. Being lefty and playing lefty works for me since I fingerpick and need more dexterity on my picking hand. I've heard before from righties who said it would have been better to play lefty to have more dexterity on the fretting hand. Actually, I wish a lot more righties played lefty, it might help increase the number of lefty guitars out there.

Hey Cousingrandpa, how did that lefty sneak in there??? Real nice collection there. From your site it looks like you like to tinker with your axes , too. I wind up changing pretty much all of my pickups and when needed I change pots and switches and whatevers. My fav is the maple neck strat that I put in lace hot gold pickups and on-board boost. Made the mex strat into something more usable. Thanks for sharing.
