    Curious who here plays any musical instruments. This is my better half (seriously... I'm a hack [​IMG] )

    Now lets see some photos of your gear... [​IMG]

    I don't have pictures of the 2 other Les Pauls I've owned... one I had for literally 2 days.

    My violin, a Gadda/Scarampella model.

    I play a bit of bass, and bang about on the piano.

    I love SGs... too bad I find them heavy as hell.

    SGs are like the lightest guitars Gibson makes. What do you use? Balsa or Basswood Strats?

    I know some people love very light guitars, which is why Korina is becoming more popular, but it's very expensive.

    Hollowbody Casino EDIT: Oops, I meant the Les Paul was heavy. When I play my brother's SG, I still find it heavy. But then, I've been spoiled with a hollowbody guitar I suppose.

    Hollowbody Casino

    I had an opportunity to get a nice Casino, but the damn things feedback like crazy. I went to go see the bastardized version of Axl's GNR and Richard Fortus, one of the guitarists, played only a hollowbody (I think an ES 355)... it sounded amazing.

    PS. I didn't realize you were the one who made the post, so obviously I should have known you have the Casino.

    I've played bass for 26 years. I don't have digital pics of my gear handy, but I currenlty have a mid-70's, tobacco sunburst Fender American Standard Precision bass, a 2002 black Fender American Standard Jazz bass, a 250 watt SWR Redhead 2x10 combo, a 75 watt Fender RAD 1x10 practice amp, a Zoom multi-effects pedal, and a Cry Baby.

    yeah, I've played a few. They make a great bass. They are a bit unforgiving as they will expose every poorly played note, but they sound fantastic.

    '93 Strat because Jimi had one. also have a classical guitar that i thought i would learn to play flamenco on.

    haven't played either in a good 5 years maybe?

    if i was still playing, my dream guitar would have been a Gibson Les Paul (freakin' gorgeous Violinst) a la Dean Wareham from Galaxie 500.

    Sweet gear, Get Smart. The 360 is one of the greatest guitars ever. Is the Tophat a custom deal? Tube or solidstate?
