I thought it'd be cool if all us gear heads have one thread to show off your prized possessions and drool over the cool stuff others have.

I've owned a LOT of guitars over the years... from this sort of guitar



to this



and this!



I don't know if I'm growing old or what, but I find myself gravitating towards smaller, more traditional guitars these days.

My main guitar right now is this Peavey Wolfgang Std:



I also have an '03 LP Classic which is the LP that I will never sell - I foolishly actually sold it off a few years ago, then was lucky enough to find it back 3 owners later... it's not going anywhere ever again!



The rest of the collection is constantly in flux but I'll share a few later on - now, let's see yours!! biggrin.gif

Wow...that PRS looks GORGEOUS!

I am finding the same thing about myself, I want a guitar that looks classy and plays mean as hell, or smooth and sweet smile.gif Here are my current axes. From left to right:

PRS Paul Allender, Ibanez JEM 777SK, PRS Mike Mushok, Yamaha fg 365 s

These types of threads are always fun when they come up smile.gif That WASHBURN is a classic!! Before Dimebag went over to Dean, Washburn was really making some killer guitars. Look at that finish!! Is that an original Bill Lawrence 500xl in the bridge? Is this one still in your collection?

It's a PRS Singlecut Trem, 20th Anniversary model smile.gif I wrote about it a little here: http://sixstringsamurai.co.nz/2012/06/18/p...-that-glitters/ (and there are more pics)

Killer guitar, played well and looked amazing, but the SC Trem models are thinner bodied and don't sound quite like a real Les Paul, so I ended up selling it.

Unfortunately, this one was sold too! It came stock with a Dimebucker in the bridge and a '59 in the neck.

Yeah, Washburn had some great Dime guitars! One of my "bucket list" guitars is a Washburn USA Stealth.

Hey, is that a Minarik I spy on your guitar rack? Cool stuff, I always wondered whether they were any good or not, but they never had them in NZ back in the day, and they seem to have faded from view a bit now - are they still in production?

Man, that 777 is awesome! I like how it has aged gracefully from its original "Shocking Pink" colour.

Holy crap Amp360 - those all belong to you?!!?!? That's an insane collection of vintage gear!! That's one place my gear journey has yet to take me... I can't really afford vintage gear, perhaps one day when I'm older and significantly richer!!

Britishampfan - how are you finding the 8? My hands are tiny, I've never been able to play anything more than a 7, and even then I think my brain just isn't wired for extended range guitars, hahaha.

Well it takes some getting used to that is for sure, the neck is great and easy to play, it`s a shred guitar and a great lead guitar I like it for heavy crushing sounds it`s tuned to low F.

I think I am going to low E I have some bigger strings for it the whole trick is getting that low string tension right.

I am getting some new pickups for it, I want Bareknuckle Aftermaths, but I might settle for some D`actvators, the stock pickups are mud.

Still getting it set up for me yet.

Surprisingly enough I can get a good sound out of it with enough EQ, ha ha

Good Eye! It's a MINARIK LOTUS CUSTOM that I put EMGs in with the PA2 Boost switch. The gain was almost uncontrollable. It was a beautiful guitar smile.gif I was Endorsed by Minarik for a while when I was playing their guitars. I was always impressed with them. I had a MINARIK INFERNO as well which was fun but really too heavy to actually play standing up smile.gif

The lotus played better than most of the real Les Pauls I've tried due to the slim neck profile but then again, thats just preference smile.gif The neck on the lotus is smaller than my Ibanez and the reach was great. I ended up selling them both when I started craving my first 8 string smile.gif

Beautiful wood all through this guitar...
