Taylor - T5 in cocobolo
Strat - American Vintage 62 Reissue
Rickenbacker - 360/6
SG - Silverburst
Gretsch - 57 DuoJet (my favorite)
Antigua Tele - Crafted in Japan 72 Reissue *
Blue Tele - Crafter in Japan 62 Custom Reissue *
* The Antigua came with the maple neck and Schaller tuners ( I think......) and standard pups
The Blue came with the rosewood neck, vintage style tuners and Texas pups
I swapped the necks/tuners/pups and electronics from one to the other. I liked the sound of the Antigua and the maple neck, but not the body color. I think the maple neck looks much better on the 62 and the rosewood on the 72. The 62 sounds great. It plays from bright to warm and in truth doesn't have the typical Tele "twang"......which I'm not a big fan of. It actually sound like my Gretsch now, which is weird...but I love it!
As of now, the only guitars that will never leave my colloectio nare the blue Tele, Gretsch, Strat and Taylor. If anyone has an interest in the Antugua Tele, Rick or the SG, pm me. Gotta roll em' out the door to pay for the American Custom Shop Rosewood Tele I have on lay-away!
My wife said either "sell some guitars or a kidney if you're planning on getting that thing you ordered". Unfortunately, the guy from the guitar shop where it is called to tell me the price.....left a message on the machine.......wife got home first and heard it..........my cover is blown.
Niiiiiice collection Larry.
I'd love little corner like that.
But 1) I can't afford to ;D
2) Mother would kill me
3) I tend to use the same guitars for gigging and not a fan of 'em just sitting there. I'm in the process of consolodating all my gear down to 2 amps and 2 guitars!
