    Having just had surgery (and God willing having become cancer free), i find myself unable to lift or play any guitars for a while. So please bear with me as i indulge in just the joy of looking at my guitars, and hopefully some of you will find ways to post your guitars in some sort of themed groups. I‘M using photos i took pre surgery but if i could still lift them id like to make new groups Like the single coil/ humbucker, or tremolo/fixed bridge. Anyhow. Its good to be back home with my guitars. Here they are, grouped by manufacturer.

    I’m sure you’ll be picking them up before you know it but don’t rush it. Glad to have you back.

    @mbkri, I'm glad you're on the other side of your procedure! You've got some beautiful guitars waiting to sit on your lap.

    Here are my pets, the sweet-voiced DeArmond Sisters, all dressed in red but each has her own charms.

    So glad to hear you are back and on the mend. Take your time recovering. And your guitars are most ogleworthy.

    Thank you! Really Looking at our guitars is medicine for me, uplifting and community based and Filled with hope and joy. Im also reading novels and playing cards with the family but the forum is a way of connecting with the larger world but without thinking about the news, or the work that I’m not doing!

    Yes, hoping for a speedy, total recovery!

    As to groupings, I was surprised as I didn't plan this but I have pairs:
    2 Fender
    2 G&L
    2 Epiphone
    2 Squier
    and when my new one (ordered 4 days ago) gets here, 2 Gretsch.

    Three S-types, three T-types, two G2622s, one Les Paul and one SG. Enough for now.

    Glad to hear it sounds like the surgery went well!

    Here's the pre-existing good group photos I've got in my imgur bucket. I think I've probably posted many of them before, but I can see about getting some new ones up for you too.

    Well now @Sid Nitzerglobin i feel much better and im sure theres Loads of gretschtalk members Who also feel much better for seeing that.
    That new blue Ric bass goes on for miles doesnt it?
    Some great groupings in there but you came out of the gate hitting big with the JM and Rics. Love that natural (ash?) JM.
