I still pick up my metal guitars when writing music, but 99% of the time I’m just playing on the couch I‘m playing these-

The grain on this body is what made me buy it-

View attachment 117725

It looks like pine but the seller said it‘s ash, I really can’t tell. It’s lighter than I’d expect a pine body to be, but I’ve never held a piece of pine that was dried out enough to use for a guitar.

Had to get rid of all that new/white plastic on it because it was too start of a difference, did the soak-in-coffee trick with the trem bar tip and it came out perfect! (Not in this pic)

So nice. Love the sunburst one especially.

My Jackson SL2 Mick Thomson model looked lonely so I bought it a sister.

I am absolutely over the moon to have a red MTM1, it's always been one of my dream guitars. I first played one in 2006, the first one brought into the UK as it happens, but I didn't buy it. I was a fool.

Ironically, this is supposedly the second one that arrived in the UK, a 2006 model, though the previous owner removed the EMG 81/60 and replaced them with SD EMTY Blackouts. I doubt I'll bother taking it back to standard, even for the sake of originality. The only thing to make me do it would be to make it a bit more different to the Jackson, though the Jackson is in C standard and the Ibanez will be a dedicated drop B guitar. 20221202_183317.jpg

Here's my new tele from Rebirth Guitar Co, a boutique luthier here in Denver CO. I wasn't able to upload booty shots because of the file size. I'll have to circle back another time. Hope y'all enjoy this guitar porn :)

That might be the most beautiful top wood/color combo I’ve ever seen. That purple just POPS!

Also, love the fact that the booty was too big to upload an image of :agreed::lol:

Didn't feel like posting a NGD, hah, but here's my newest guitar: 1991 Fender American Standard Strat in Gunmetal Blue (I think that's the name, looks more grey depending on the light). Really cool guitar -- there is one part of the finish that I found strange, and it's these long sort-of vertical lines in the third pic that run along the full length of the body on front and back. I looked it up and found that it's possibly where the finish had shrunk, or maybe the guitar wasn't prepped well before finishing from the factory. It's not too noticeable, and the guitar plays so well that I still really like it.

My fretless @DeanGordonGuitars Mirus.

How that conversation went:

me: I want a fretless
Dean: no you probably don't
me: i really do
Dean: i can make a new neck if you regret it
me: i won't regret it


edit: Oh and he put the thinnest wenge neck ever on here. I had him match the dimensions of an old wizard neck. :)

I'm just realizing now how unobstructed it must be on the higher frets when there's no body at all on the one side of the neck joint.

Yeah, it is the most comfortable guitar design I've ever encountered. It feels so weird to have such open access down there. You could fit both hands, plus another person's two hands. So ergonomic.

On this particular guitar, though, there's no upper fret access. Haha. Just upper...board access.

Lovely, I love a fretless guitar, more so when exquisite like that one.

A few questions:
- Tuning and string gauge?
- Scale length?
- I'm assuming ebony fingerboard?
- got any sounds to share?
- ever think on installing a Sustainiac Sustainer in the neck position? you should! At least play with an Ebow or the TC Electronic's whatever name it has... :)

Fretless guitars sure are fun to play. You need a 7 stringer like that... just saying... you didn't know that you now do need save up for another guitar, right?
