    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?

    A mod with a Ric... obviously that's some type of AC30 handwired job.

    Rics are the last truly well built guitars of the major companies, and at a really great price. Their customer service is literally second to none.

    The amount of boutique amps is now staggering. I have experience with Matchless, Bogner, Orange, Dumble, and Fuchs. Then all the other major stuff like Marshall etc...

    Tube....EL84 powered, 20watt Class A, same chimey tone of a Vox AC-30 but it has less headroom so more balls. It's all hand P2P wired and one of the amps built by Brian Gerhardt before he sold his own company.

    Play guitar, although not very well. Have played bass in a pinch and on a few recordings. Guitars are Rickenbacker 360-12 and 620-6. Myspace page for my long defunct band shows me with the 360 (and with hair):
