Hey, everyone. I came back about a year ago, because I missed you all very much, and I promised to post pictures of my newest guitars. Obviously I was never able to do that, and I apologize for making a promise I couldn't follow through with. It's just been a very, very, very rough year. I won't dance around the issue; I am extremely ill. My body is just slowly failing me, and it's basically shutting down. According to my doctors, I have lethally low levels of a handful of vitamins (vitamin D, calcium, etcetera.) But scariest of all, I might have thyroid cancer. It's more likely that I don't have it, and im trying to just focus on that to stay as positive as possible. But i have to accept it as a possibility, because it is. I am usually a strong person, but I'm scared. I'll keep you guys and gals updated on my health whenever I'm feeling well enough to post. But until then, I'd love to show you all my guitars that you've been waiting so patiently to see. Here's a few pictures; these are maybe 85-90% of my collection (most of which you've seen). Danelectro '67 heaven hawk (I might take everything off of the body for a project idea that I'll, eventually, be posting a separate thread for to get your opinions on a build idea.) An Aria super strat (which I think is hideous, but it was a gift; just not something I'd ever choose for myself.) This one is in a tuning I've been calling "backwards standard". It's still tuned E A D G B E, except you'll notice it's strung like a lefty, with the thick strings starting on the right side. You can play it exactly like you'd play in standard tuning, except everything sounds so full and unique because of all the displaced octaves. Very fun and useful for overdubbing a regular guitar for a bigger, more unique sound. This is a limited edition Squier classic vibe 60's strat, with a purple sparkle finish, and matching headstock. I replaced the white plastic pickguard and trem cavity cover with gold anodized aluminum ones i got off ebay, and i fell in love with the look. I call this one my Prince strat (for obvious reasons.) It has a dinosaur Jr. Vibe too, which I also like. It's a wonderful guitar that rivals my Fenders. This one is a 70's SG copy from Japan. That's all I know about it, other than the fact that it feels amazing to play, but sounds absolutely awful. It's quirky and I got it for next to nothing though, so I like keeping it around despite already owning a real SG, even though it really does sound horrendous. This one is possibly the best guitar I own. It's a quirky Fender telecaster, but it has a much shorter scale length, and the body is something like 10-20% smaller than a normal Tele. It plays great, and sounds great. it has a really cool humbucker in the neck position; I wanna say it's a Guild pickup, but I can't remember. (Also, i made a flashy-ish leather cowboy strap for this guitar, as you can see. It used to be a fat cowboy's belt, now it's my tiny tele's strap.) this one is a Danelectro dead-on '67. Super light, fun guitar. Pretty nice tone, acceptable playability; not too much to say about this one other than "i like it a bunch". Oh, and here's a side-by-side with my tiny Tele and my cabronita, so you can really see the size difference. (I love small, light, short-scale guitars). If you've got any questions about the guitars, or even my health, feel free to ask. But I know I'd much rather hear about the guitars, lol. Let me know what you guys think!
