A couple Christmas presents.
95 American Standard Strat. New pickups, picguard, and control's on the way. Gonna black it out. Already added Fender locking tuners. Line6 V60 & FBV Mk III Express. Way too many toys in this amp! Lots of fun though. I still want a Vox AC30!

Just picked this up today. Always wanted a PRS and I got a great deal on this one. It's not American made, but it wasn't $4k either![emoji6]

Wish I had the Epiphone Sheraton II and the '86 Les Paul I had when I thought I was a musician. Sold them 18 years ago to fund my wife's wedding ring. Don't regret it one bit, but I sure liked those guitars.
Now I play in church on Sunday's and that's about it.

What a beauty!

I have a '93 Model American with a Fender amp. Guitar still has the pickguard plastic on it. That is as far as I got into learning. Loooong story....

I went with my son today pawn shop hopping, looking for him an acoustic guitar. We went in the Outpost Pawn Shop in Hendersonville, and he bought a really nice Yamaha from the very nice gentleman who ran the store for what I feel is a great price. I got home and googled the guitar to learn a bit about it, and you'll never believe what I found.

It isn't a guitar LIKE this one. It IS this one!

The sad part is he has no idea who Jimmy Fortune is.

Great playing and sounding guitar anyway.

Tennessee is a pretty cool place.

A lady walks into court, accused of beating her husband with his guitars. The judge asks "First offender?" She said "No, first the Gibson, then the Fender."  Ah Cha Cha

I'll play -

Rebuilt Teisco - The D'Armond-style gold foils have such a big sound on a 5 pound guitar!

Custom Kraft (Kay). Completely stock. The single coil pickups truly scream but I really dig the crazy binding

My first electric and one of the very first G&Ls made. Also, why I hail by Swamp Ash

Glad this thread came back! Only picture I have handy of all of them. 
2000 American Standard Strat

Parts Tele (My baby)

Squier Bullet Mustang 

2000ish Taylor 410-CE 

My grandpa and I finished the body and built the Tele together. I had hopes of a decent guitar but after having a local luthier in Memphis level the frets it is literally the best playing guitar that I have ever held or owned. As much as I love my Strat it rarely gets picked up now. The Tele is just so versatile.

Sort of on this topic.... my wife got me a Postive Grid Spark for my birthday about a month ago. What a cool little amp. I've never been a pedal guy, just plugged into the amp and made the best of it. The Spark is a game changer... I think they should have named it Chameleon. There's so much there, hours can quickly disappear into the void of fiddling with settings.

I’ve seen videos of those. They look pretty interesting. I bought into the Boss Katana craze but still use pedals. It’s amazing what amps can do these days. It’s still hard to get that real tube feel but these smaller, lighter amps are getting close enough.

I've added a few more Gretsch instruments to the stable since my previous post--

First, a 1942 Gretsch Synchromatic 100. All original except for the replacement tailpiece (I still have the original broken tailpiece). This thing just sings.

Next, a Gretsch G9241 A/E biscuit-bridge Resonator--

I love my Gretsch Park Avenue mandolin so much that I hunted down another one as a "back-up". (older one is lighter sunburst, newer one is darker sunburst)--

Also added another Gretsch mandolin-- an A-body this time-- Gretsch New Yorker A/E Deluxe--

And finally, A Gretsch 5622 centerblock (semi-hollow) model.

And a few more action shots from the last couple of years--

I’d not heard of this before your post. I’ll have to pick one up. My kids and I would enjoy that I think.

A slightly different musical instrument than most of y’all. You can tell from the fingerboard and the note diagram on it that I’m not an experienced fiddler, but it is enjoyable, if quite challenging to learn. 

It’s a Fiddlerman Master violin and their “3 star” Pernambuco bow. Not anything super special or extra nice, but a nice step above a basic student violin.

I didn’t realize until I went to post the pic that it was kinda blurry. I’ll re-edit to add better pics later.

About 2 months. She ordered in June, got it a couple weeks ago. Covid killed the supply chain, so hopefully that's getting better.

Got one ordered. If anyone is interested, they are 25% off right now.
