    Here are two trios I no longer have (each has been reduced to a duo, for different reasons).

    First, the Strange Sisters:

    I sold the Ravelle Deluxe at the top simply because I wasn't playing it enough. I called it my "Les Paul on drugs," and it played and performed just like a Les Paul, but visually just didn't gibe with the bands I'm in and have been in. So I ended up playing my actual Les Pauls when I wanted that sound. The blue Ovation Breadwinner was my first giggable guitar, played at my first show in my first band, so despite its many quirks, it's staying. The DeArmond Jet Star is one of my fave imports, just a great MIK guitar with USA-made GoldTone pickups.

    For a very long time I had three Telecasters.

    These are a Fender '52 RI, a beater Frankentele with a Seymour Duncan mini as neckbucker, and a '90s Fender Telecaster Special. I gave the Frankentele to my rhythm guitarist on his 10th year with the band. He's hard on gear and I knew he couldn't destroy it.

    I was wondering if a 6120N would show up! I have one, I'll post my trio shortly. Love my 6120N.

    Did the goldtop originally have Blacktops in it? If so, I have the same guitar.

    Yes. I put TV Jones Brian Setzer signature pups in her. Didn't help my playing but they sound good.

    Thanks, that's what I'd guessed. I'm not a modder so the Blacktops'll stay.

    And just to stay on point with trios, here's my three Gibsons that have humbuckers.

    That’s everybody. Do I get rid of one or get two more?

    How large is the lower bout on that Eastman?

    This trio is so beautiful...

    1993. The Ibanez was custom made for my older brother who was sponsored by them in the late 80s and at least was put together in the USA. Sentimental value plus plays great.

    Thank you very much. They all look a little unnaturally wide in this photo. The Eastman & the Epiphone are 17" & the Gretsch is 15".
