Here's my main baby...
and a couple of her friends
The 67 1962 Bassman and a 1963 Jr.

Same SG with my Les Paul '60 Reissue
Here's mine. A '64 Jr. I went to my favorite haunt one Saturday to buy strings and there it was on the counter. It had just came in, was dirty and grimy, and the frets needed some attention, but it only took a few unamplified strums for me to call the wife and tell her I was diversifying our savings a bit.
I own some nice enough guitars, but this one is the best sounding of them all.
not quite vintage but 30 years old:
edit: srry, didn't see the yrs subhead :O
Kevin, your ebony block SG is one of my all-time favorites! I've drooled over it's thread on MLP many times.
I know you have more photos of that badboy!
Thanks man. Yes I have a few other pics of her (her name is Alyssa by the way ) but the one I posted at the top of the thread and the one in my avatar are my favorites.
Funny thing... I have the pic posted at the top of this thread saved as my desk top background at work and I've been cought staring at it on more than one occasion. I own the thing and it STILL mezmerizes me
I just love the way that top picture really makes the bevels POP.
At least it's your guitar you are staring at. I have a photo of four of Frank's (Pinefd) LPs on my desktop. People ask, "wow, are those yours?" and I have to humbly explain that they are not.
My '67 Jr. with 1980 Fender 30
(l-r) '68 SG Standard (autographed by the Allman Bros in 1990), '62 Les Paul Special, '69 SG Junior, refinished 80's Burny SG Standard, '68 SG Standard
Here's my 64 which no longer has all the correct hardware thanks to the former owner (butcher). I removed an after-market bridge mount, which had been routed into the body, and put the big pickguard on it to cover up some of the scars. There was a third pickup on this beast at one time.
My '65 SG Special.
(Oldies will have seen this before...)
Brew, do you still have the TV Yellow one?
Sadly, no, Wease... I got a Tax bill to pay and someone came up with an offer just at the right (or should that be "wrong"?) time.
I've sold a load of guitars in the last two years of stagnation.
The white Custom was sold about 4 yrs ago.
L to R: 1965 Melody maker converted to V, 1966 MMII, 1966 MMI, 1968 MMIV, 1968 MMXXII
Hi Axmaker. Haven't seen you here for a while. Always nice to see your Melody Makers too.
Thanks, Java...nice to be back...
Kevin James...you have the perfect lineup there. How did you bring it together? You just don't see guitars like those in that shape very often.
Some real nice guitars in here, guys!
