Show me your guitars
not got any pics of most except the Hamer on this computer: but a tele thinline, 73 les paul custom, 2 Jay Turser 355 copies, a Jay Turser resonator les paul type thing hybrid with gretsch filtertron pickups, a yamaha pacifica which is f*****g awful and i only bought cos it was very very cheap, but terrible and I wish I’d not bothered,a somewhat euphemistically named Hamer standard custom, and a custom tele copy,that was built for the Manchester guitar show last year, and a grant les paul copy i’ve had about thirty years.
Oddly enough my favourites are the two Turser semi’s and the electric resonator which are terrific, and were the cheapest.

Great thread!!!!!!! 🙂
My 68 reissue Explorer…
My Fender big apple strat…
My 79 strat. Bought new by me in 1979 from Rock Bottom in Croyden…
Finally, my Les Paul
It’s a Les Paul Custom. I agonised over buying it for a couple of months. Used to go to the shop at least once a week to try it. Stopped going to the shop as it was stressing me.
So then I decided that if it was still there on my birthday it was meant to be mine and I should buy it. Went to the shop, it was gone. 🙁
Asked the shop keeper who he’d sold it to. He explained that he hadn’t sold it, it was much worse than that, it had been stolen!!! Worse still, he’d had a bunch of guitars stolen. The thieves had broken in through the roof and were making their escape with his ‘gems’ when they were caught in the act. They simply threw the guitars to the ground and ran. The Les Paul was badly damaged and the headstock had been snapped off! 🙁
He’d sent all his guitars for repair. I asked him to call me when the LP was back. Three month later I got a call. The guitar was back! Shop keeper tells me It’s good, but not perfect.I dash over…….. The neck repair was 100% there was no way you could tell it had ever been broke. The repairs to the body were brilliant. There was just one place on the binding that wasn’t perfect, but I had to have it pointed out to me.
I bought it without further delay. It’s a beautiful monster of a guitar, and I like the fact that it has a dark history. 🙂Posted 9 years agoMartynSSubscriber
ohhh I like this..
waxed body from a guitar show, neck from a mate, pickups from somewhere..
epiphone Les Paul, only a small chunk out of it where I dropped it..
had this since I was 16.. 20 years, blimey. It was cheap then and worthless now, not much paint on the back, but it sounds good and I like it!
Tyger, that schecter Strat is sooooo nice, like the one Mark K played live for Tunnel of love. I wouldn’t mind one like that.. how come the squire neck btw??Posted 9 years agoMrNuttMember

This is one of my guitars in action. A fender Jagstang which has been modified with Dimarzio super distortion pick ups and custom circuitry. In my armoury I also have a Gibson Les Paul, an Epiphone Riviera a Fender Jaguar (too unreliable for live work though) and one or two Ibanez planks.
Hi MartynS, I had a JV Strat that was great to play but the electrics let it down and as I couldn’t afford a genuine Schecter I managed to get hold of the electrics from Ebay and they fitted like a glove. Plays like a dream.Posted 9 years ago
I’m currently putting together a ’62 Fiesta Red Strat as accurately as I can. If anyone knows where I can lay my paws on some 250k split-shaft Stackpole pots cheap – that would be good! 🙂waynekerrMember

I did not realise there were so many guitar players with so much nice guitars on this forum.
