Only got the 3 out just now. The rest are above the front door and I can’t be bothered getting the ladder out to bring them down... :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

@BonScot, what’s your pedalboard look like? I switched over to the Line 6 Helix pretty early on, and have been pretty happy with it. I sometimes miss the pedalboard, but I don’t miss fiddling with patch cables and power supplies, nor do I miss the hunt for the perfect third stage overdrive. ;)

I had 2 cases with all sorts of pedals in them. Probably didn’t need most of them. I’ll be honest I was obsessed with crazy expensive boutique pedals. I’ve still got all of them. I’ve now replaced this obsession with poker chips :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
I used a line 6 later on because of the reasons you gave. Some drunk guy fell on to the stage and landed on my line 6 during “where the streets have no name” and turned into a death metal version. Took me forever to reset it :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

I'm more of a bass player that likes to think he can play guitar, but....

2009 Les Paul Studio - Arctic White & it's still white, not yellowed. Gold hardware, & from back in the era when the white version included an ebony fretboard & crown inlays. I kind of blinged it up a notch adding gold pickup mount rings, gold pickguard & pokerchip, & a custom gold trussrod cover an outfit custom etched with a reasonable facsimile of the stock lettering font.

2013 PRS-SE Custom 24 - Translucent Royal Blue, cheap plastic nut used on the SE line replaced with nut used on the Core line.

Cheap Early 2000s-ish Ovation CS257 Acoustic/Electric - Blue Sunburst

And a collection of three (yes, really)...

Guild X-79 Skyhawks - All 3 are from 1982. Metallic blue finish & original cases.

#0713 - Purchased about 10 years ago out of a shop in Denver. Original bridge pickup replaced with a Seymour Duncan "Screamin' Demon" (George Lynch sig model) Been played hard & put away wet. Nitro clearcoat yellowed so it now looks more "teal" than "blue". In dire need of a fret leveling when I got it. (I just did a quick 2nd touch-up of 'em recently) Typical headstock repair had been done as about 90% of these have if they've been used much at all. Original 12:1 tuners replaced with Schaller's new 18:1 version. Been played so much the finish is literally worn off the back of the neck in a couple places. If anyone needs proof the necks on these things are indeed mahogany, I have it. Still plays as awesome as good old early 80s era Guild electrics do with that same thin neck profile of the 70s "S" & "M" series. 24 frets, & still the "most played" of all of 'em I own because I just love the neck profile. Only other thing I've ever felt similar was an original late 80s Kramer Nightswan (Vivian Campbell model). & yes, I still kick myself to this day for not grabbing that one.

And, the two stars of the show....

#1205 - Purchased about 25 years ago out of a shop in Northeast PA. The blue finish is actually still blue & in overall excellent condition with no usual headstock repair & hardly any noticeable wear. This one came optioned up to the "Cadillac" version with Guild's own "HB-1" pickups with coil tap switches rather than the stock Dimarzio-made XR-7 (which are merely a clone of the "Super-II")

#1150 - A recent acquisition from a Guild Collector in New Jersey (because I couldn't resist when he offered). Not only is this thing still blue, we can't really figure out if it was ever actually played much. Really.... "near mint" doesn't even begin to describe this one. Hell, the case even still smells like nitro. Only issue was one of the tuners had gotten stiff, probably from lack of use, & someone had tried to work it loose enough that the tuning peg had loosened on the shaft to the point it would no longer stay tight. Rather than fudge it, I took the original tuners from #0713 & put 'em on it. Just to keep everything stock.

It's the blue X-79 featured on his Guild guitars blog site.... https://www.gad.net/Blog/2018/05/10/guild-x79/

I only own some cheap acoustics that are autographed. I guess the best one I have is signed by George Strait
I must confess I had to google George Strait. What’s his best tracks and I’ll give him a listen?

I’ve never played a 7 string. Can just about cope with a 6 string. Am I right in saying there’s a lot more bass? What is the 7th string?
Not sure it’s really more bass but just lower notes. In standard tuning it’s just an added B. I went through a phase of wanting to play low tuned death metal so it seemed like a better way to go rather than just throwing fatter strings on a 6. The Ibanez necks in my opinion are easier to get around on so the extra string isn’t too bad. I rarely touch the thing anymore more.

I’ve never played an Ibanez. I do prefer the fender necks over Gibson’s. Being a lefty I’m a bit limited to what I can play. Always wanted a double neck SG :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
