I would have no problem getting by with one guitar if I had too, but I don't want too .
It's not a problem owning multiple instruments, as long as the kids are fed and the bills are paid. There are some that take it to extremes, as in all things. I was just thinking of a lot of players known for just one single instrument and those who can only afford one.
Can you picture Willie with something other than Trigger, or BB King without Lucille?
Well, if it has to be a guitar then it would be a Jet.
But I’m more into electric pianos at the moment. It’s sad to say but now that I don’t gig anymore, I hardly feel the need of pick up a six strings. I much more prefere the thrill of getting a boogie pattern done on black and white keys after weeks of hard practice.
I know. I’m getting old.
Yep, I've got three electrics that I consider equal, and share the #1 position.
Guess that I could sell two, but I too don't want to.
Exactly, we have to spend our earnings on something we are interested in, as long as the priorities are right.
It would be odd seeing that, if I was a professional musician though I think I would be a 'number one' guitar person which would be my white penguin, or my 6119.
Are Matons expensive down there or no? Man, my Maton Mini EMD-6 is absolute magic. It’s my FAVORITE gigging acoustic by a country mile.
My Country Gent is an amazing axe. I truly love it. My other three Gretsch are just as good.
I have thought of giving another shot to a Fender Jaguar, just to have something with a short scale, very slinky strings and some degree of versatility. If it happens, it will be a custom build, to my specs.
I remember when a single ES 175 would have been a dream come true.
@TSims1 They are in the higher bracket so to speak for acoustics, range anywhere from $900 and go up, a few shops have your one advertised for average $1700, they start slightly cheaper then Martins and cole clarks but are in the same price point.
Mine cost me tuners, stirings and a clean up as someone was throwing it out when they cleaned their house, it's a M225, entry level but I'd buy another one if it went missing.
It's like an old pair of jeans and boots.
Interesting. So being a Mini, I’m not completely blown away with the acoustic volume(though the tonal complexity and texture is still premium).....but the PLUGGED IN tone is just absolutely unreal. The pickup system is SO GOOD that it’s the first acoustic EVER that I plug straight into the recording deck. It sounds that doggone good. These sell around $2k here.
@TSims1 I have heard that before actually with a few matons, some don't like the acoustic sound, which is a little thin and bright with mine in my opinion but I haven't heard a bad thing about them plugged in, a lot of big name aussies use them though.
I'd say that's what they would RRP here too but the places i had a quick look at do pretty good online deals.
I would still like a tele and a hollow body Gretsch But I’m in no rush. That said I would love to have the large bodied Martin like a 0000, M etc. Again no big rush all would just be luxury items and I’m in no hurry to buy any luxury items currently. Just weather the current storm and hope I don’t have to start selling gear to survive.
I only have one guitar now which is my 53vs Jet, it’s so good that there is a reason it’s my only guitar now, but if I had the funds to get more axes I’d like a green Annie with hilotrons, a Les Paul junior and some kind of single pickup super strat like an old school Jackson or Charvel
Rickenbacker 360, Penguin, and another hollow Gretsch (6120, 6119).
Oh my! Completely drool worthy!! Must be a pleasure to play that baby
Completely agree, feels like holding on to an old friend
Thanks. It's a pleasure in everyway to play.
I've spent countless hours just having some fun with it.
Just about everyone who's played it, ends up asking me if I would sell it!
That says it all to me. It's a keeper.
I pretty much have every guitar I have ever wanted. I mean, there are some that I don't have but they're not really that different than others I do own.
Here are some of my guitars. I have some cool stuff I didn't put up. I collected TV Specials and Jrs in the 90s before they got worth dumb money so I have quite a few of those as well as some other cool stuff.
The Standard here is a '58. The Custom is a '72 The Firebird I is a '63, the 330 is a '69 and the Everly is a limited model #4 of 100 from the Custom Shop
Here are some of my lesser known brands. Two GMPs and a Roman Magic Twanger.
That's my '58 with a '54 Strat '50 Broadcaster and a '61 SG/LP and a '61 Strat is barely there:
Some newer Fender stuff including a Robbie Robertson Last Waltz, a Masterbuilt in Fiesta Red, a 73 Tele Custom and an Eric Clapton
60's Gretsch bass with a '57 6120 and Sparkle Jet:
A rare May Bell Faux Resonator:
Some Martins. 1959 oo-21 and a D-41
1963 Fender Jaguar:
PRS I forget the model but they wrote my name on the back of it.
This photo I took today. It's a Roman Rist (who owned Image Guitars in Hollywood) Telecaster with a Gibson scale, SG carves, old growth mahogany neck with a huge profile and gun oil finish along with pickups Jason Lollar hand wound for it:
IMHO the 87-92 Fender guitars were the best after the Pre CBS stuff. This is my '91 Strat Plus in rare Midnight Blue:
Just because everyone needs a shredder this is a 1987 USA Jackson Soloist San Dimas model.
Oh, and not a guitar but I also have Ace's license plate
Sooo . . . you single?
I've been married to the same girl for 19 years and have three beautiful children.
