    Good to hear you are going well, as you know you can't rush a recovery so just take it easy and enjoy the down time, it is a bonus that guitars are nice too look at when they're not being played.
    Agree on looking is a lot easier on the wallet, and your collection really is something to admire, you have some amazing pieces.
    If ever I need to move the penguin on, i'll have no issues shipping it your way :)

    Thanks Audept, a green anniversary is the only thing missing in my mind.
    I think a group shot of yours would be a sight in itself, you should do it one day.

    Mine are all in a storage facility now, packed in like sardines. When I can get them all (or most of them) in one space to take a photo I will definitely do it.

    I won't say its an easy instrument to play but if you can make slide playing on a regular guitar sound better than a dying cat, you have a chance.

    Mine live on the wall of my music room, somewhat grouped by manufacturer but more by other criteria of my own.

    Anyway, here's the electric guitar wall. There's one 60's model Teisco that doesn't fit up there so it lives on a stand.

    And I see I'm not the only DiPinto owner on here. Good on ya!

    Me, too! Those black jets are the ones they should call "Penguin". They always look like they're in a tux!

    I love these kind of comparison shots. I like the way you’ve done that. I also like the look of those 6120s. Curious to see which you sold and which you kept. 501E15B1-AB85-4B80-B74F-DC8E4EF0BF85.jpeg

    Nope. I had one but didn't get along with it. I'm still looking for one that works for me.

    I sold the RHH (same as yours) because of money and free space shrinkage. :-/

    The three live-beaters:
    IMG_0791.JPG IMG_0979.JPG IMG_2316.JPG
    Decided to go with replaceable guitars for live use. Guitars that can get a good beating and that are replaceable when stolen, destroyed. You name it. One of them is always sick or just under construction. In normal times they are punished so hard that I should be ashamed.
    My luthier friend build me these from Mighty Mite, super rare vintage Floyds and even more rare vintage Gordon Smith parts. They rule.
    The trem itself has no moveable parts. Rock solid and far more stable than a original Fender or fine-tuner Floyd. The fact that there are no Finetuners does not really hurt. Just ask Brad Gillis.
    The pickups are just amazing and congenial.
    Mid to low output PAF style with a push/pull Tele option.
    Similar rosewood necks, similar mid heavy weight. You can interchange them without problem. Minimal options maximal result. Just great.

    They deliver.

    I like the look of the fretboard on that yellow one @loudnlousy. Looks good and dense and well worn in.

    Actually this is the one that gets the least playing -time.
    A little detail that is not visible in the pictures: I had chrome dots inlayed in all of them. This looks very nice under stage-light.
