I still got all my guitars I ever had!

Fender Stratocaster
Oakland ZX1200
Guild Starfire IV

I inherited these 3 from my dad.

My main guitar, the Ibanez you get to see in all my videos was a present from my dad to me a few months before he died.

So all these guitars are connected with memories, that's why selling is a no-go smile.gif

That makes all of your guitars worth the most in my opinion. smile.gif

My grandfather had some stringed instruments that I never got a chance to get. No one else played, but I wasn't inline for anything being a kid when he passed. All of that stuff had been sold so I have nothing from the only man in my family who played any instruments thanks to greedy family members. mad.gif

Lets see if I can remember...

Harmony Acoustic from Sears (still have it)

Used to have:

Washburn electric (don't remember model)
B.C. Rich Warlock (late 80's model)
ESP LTD M-250 (2 of them)
Ibanez RG 550
Ibanez RG bass
Cort fretless bass
Guild Flying V "Lance"
Ibanez semi-hollow

Currently have:

Gibson LP 1960 reissue

Still wish I had the Ibanez RG550... they used to be easy to find for dirt cheap. Now they are too expensive.

Also miss having the ESP LTD with EMG 81/85 but I don't regret selling it.

Dean Dime-O-Flame
Washburn Acoustic
ESP LTD Alexi-600
Gibson Les Paul
Gibson Explorer
Schecter Loomis
Ibanez S770 - (Still Own)

I tend to get bored with a piece of gear, so I trade it on something more expensive.

The Washburn MG-34 is torn apart in the storage space waiting to be rebuilt one of these days. All the hardware was corroding so I would like to get all new hardware and rebuild it since it was my first electric guitar.

Ibanez RG920QM (Black Ice) , Ibanez S770PB (Natural Flat) , Ibanez RG470XL (Black Perl) , Squire IV Jazz Bass (Sunburst)
Kemper Profiling Amp , Mesa Mark 5:25

Nice thread and some fascinating lists. But how the heck do I remember all my guitars and when / what order I got them! Hmmm .... no I can't do it. biggrin.gif

Here is my poor attempt with very incomplete information

Cheap nylon classical guitar (not far off 50 years ago) - think I left it behind when I left my parents home.
Very cheap electric guitar - now we're talking late 1960s and cheap guitars were REALLY BAD! Can't remember what happened to it.
A "Strat" type home made guitar, which had a damaged neck and was painted purple - neck repaired and sanded down to wood - couldn't look at it when it was purple if I had a hangover. Passed to a relative.
A better quality classical guitar though still pretty low budget. *
A build it yourself electric guitar kit - mail order - no idea of the make and can't even remember what it looked like. Very early 1970s. Wonder What happened to it?
..... there was then a pause of many, many years. Until ....
1999 - a Yamaha Pacifica, along with a bundled practice amp and a mult function Zoom pedal - has been passed to eldest son
Vintage av6plb - sold
Self assembled Les Paul type guitar but with bolt on neck (ugh!) and Wilkinson hardware - dismantled & sold / recycled
Decent quality Spanish origin Classical Guitar, bought when I was taking lessons ... guess what - can't remember the make - sold when I gave up on Classical guitar.
Vintage brand V100BB - sold
Gibson SG Standard (used) - sold to pay vets fees
Self Build Strat / Tele hybrid with mahogany body - dismantled & sold / recycled
Self Build Tele - good quality body but even with Seymour Duncan pups didn't make the grade - dismantled & sold / recycled.
Vintage brand Tele copy - sold
Hagstrom Viking Deluxe **
Self Build Strat **
Tanglewood TW45NSB *
PRS SE Soapbar **
Vintage brand VSA590 - sold
Vintage brand sg copy - sold
Gibson SG Classic P90s *

Over the past 6 years or so there's also been on the bass front:-
Encore Bass - purchased on e-bay when drunk - awful thing - rapidly sold
Self build Jazz bass - including cutting / carving body - dismantled & sold / recycled
Vintage Advance av4 - sold
Hofner Ignition Violin Bass *

* - still have
** - still have but with upgraded pickups

HELP - it is a terribly long list - I shudder to think of the total costs in that lot. Seems like I can't seem to be able to settle for what I've got.

Still learning guitar - always will be learning.

Nice thread indeed.

That lets me think of more than 30 years playing guitar, buying guitars, selling guitars (thanks god for ebay).

So i won't list guitars that i bought and sold in between a short period of time, cause i didn't get friends with them.

Lets start of 30 years ago

- Classical guitar Matsuoka (still have it and play it)
- Washburn Double cut (it was stolen in school)
- Yamaha SG 300 (It felt of the stage cause a drunk roadie was handling some ligthbars)
- Ibanez Roadstar (with 2 Humbuckers & Floyd Rose)
- Fender Stratocaster 62 reissue Japan made (different modifikations on it) - still have it & play it
- Heritage C150 Les Paul (One of the first productions, awesome sounding Les Paul) - sold it, as far as i don't feel comfortable with
Les Pauls
- Ibanez RBM Reb Beach
- Zion Radicaster (with some kind of weird airbrush design yellow & pink).
- Fender Stratocaster, built in 1962 (my beloved rotten babe - i just play it at home)
- Takamine EN 10
- Gibson ES 335
- Lipe-Guitars - After several years of searching for the right guitar, i finally landed with Lipe-Guitars. Handbuild, Custom made to my
specifications. Actually i'm playing a Virtuoso, Classic Virtuoso and Soldato - 3 Guitars in main use, always on stage -
good sounding and faithful workhores thats enough to me (for the moment). Wished that i found them some years
earlier - that could have saved a lot of money and a lot of discussions with my wife. But thats another story.

Just thinking - have to buy a bunch of flowers to my wife - letting me do all this...

Never too old to rock!
