Inspired by my recent thread. Let's see all your goodies. Make sure to talk about them, so noobs thinking of buying have some insight.

I like this thread already.

I'd start off, but the only guitar of mine I have pics of is the one that I'm getting rid of because it is ugly. :p When I replace it I will have pics of the new baby, though.

oof. I used to collect quite a bit. It was damn fun.

in NYC, I obviously have a lack of space. The daily player is a Fender American Vintage 60's Strat in Olympic white with a Vox Valvetronix 30 watt amp.

Back upstate, at my parent's home is the vault. The collection includes:

1962 Telecaster Custom, sunburst
Fender Custom shop '60's Telecaster custom relic (not many produced) ... meant to be the working model of the prior guitar
Fender Custom shop masterbuilt '62 relic Strat (given a John Frusciante treatment)
Fender '50's closet classic Strat
Fender '60's relic Strat
Gibson Les Paul Goldtop, Custom Historic Reissue series
Gibson ES-335
Taylor 810 Acoustic

Guitars that I have owned by sold: PRS Custom 22 (teal, 10-top, birds), PRS Custom 24 (burst, 10-top, birds). Fender Custom shop Nocaster (the one sale I still regret and still miss dearly)

Amps:
Marshall DSL100 w/ 4X12 Cab
Marshall JTM45 w/ 4X12 Cab
Fender Twin Reverb
Fender Princeton from the 60's
Vox AC15

Pedals that I care about:
Boss Turbo Distortion
Big Muff fuzz box
Ibanez WH-10 Wah
Keeley modded Ibanez TS6

My list is nowhere near that cool, but I'll have a go. Some guitars I have at home, a couple are with me at uni

Guitars:
Gibson 335 dot (my favorite, will get another similar thing soon)
Epiphone Valensi Riviera (am going to sell, but it is a cool guitar)
Fender MIJ Strat (am also going to sell, mine is "vintage white" which actually means pale yellow)
'69 Martin D18
Martin 000m (really great cheap acoustic, IMO, though I believe it is discontinued)

Amps:
Vox AC15
Fender Hot Rod DeVille 212

Pedals:
Ibanez TS808 Reissue
Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde
Boss DD-7
EHX Pog (haven't played yet, being shipped now)
Hermida Audio Zendrive (also not played yet)

I can't play for shit and really just kind of enjoy making noise and playing with guitars. I have: Edwards Les Paul - helluva deal for $1k - sweet vintage-style pickups (Duncan Antiquities), nitro finish Edwards Telecaster - great deal for ~$750. Also Antiquities. Never got on with it completely for some reason. Danelectro reissue (can't remember which model - it's the one where the body kind of looks like a blob) - I actually play it better than either of the above Guild D-50 acoustic (back when they were still made in Tacoma, WA) 3/4-size Gretsch acoustic that cost $50 and has an alien painted on the front Gibson GA-18T - 20w vintage amp into a 10" speaker with bitchin' tremolo Blackheart Little Giant 'mini stack' - 5w/3w head into a 12" speaker cab Lovepedal - I can't remember what this is actually called, they stopped making it. It's a pedal-sized solid state amp of ~1w. My Les Paul (E-LP-130) in front of the Blackheart Little Giant mini stack:

I'm starting the process of selling off all of the above except the Gibson amp. I just want one awesome guitar and one amp, since I'm only fooling around.

Everything will go to fund a K-Line Time Kapsule Telecaster (Lake Placid Blue metallic, chunky rosewood neck, vintage-style pickups) and some kind of boutique 5w amp.

It sounds great, I just can't stand the color. Once I find a made in the 80's 70's reissue MIJ that is a true white, I'll be all over it.

Biggest beef with the LP is that I think flamed 'burst finishes are cheesy as hell.

Plaintop tobacco burst or goldtop, please.

I'm a much bigger fan of the '60's models, even if it's just for the nitro-cellulose paint over the poly based paint.

The same model that Carl Perkins played and was photographed using in all his early publicity shots
