My Gibson SG Special with Duncan 59s (I sold it)

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.

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.

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?
