I have an ES-175, use it a lot, too - but I've also played 335's, SG's, Strats, Teles!
Ha! Ain't that the truth...
My guitar isn't part of my image.. but playing guitar is part of my image..
Really don't know how but that's the case with me. And I can't even play. Lol
Being short haired with my Jackson Rhoads custom does not feel right so it is. I still got hair being 43 years old so in a bald tattooed, bearded world it is great to be different.
Partscaster Blackie looks better with gold hardware to match the Schecter brass bridge and since the back plate was white the pickguard got to be white. Now it looks like a guitar!
My idea of who I am is guitar player...others maybe, maybe not.
I'm too grumpy to have an image...unless that IS my image!
If I ever get to play original music, it will be with crappy ass looking guitars, nothing iconic, just thrown together out of spare parts.
My image doesn't define me, but my convictions.
But if an image is the case, then I have a black strat...so I'm melancholy and passive.
If you don't mention your convictions, no one can hold them against you.
I am a welder and usually have on bib overalls. So, my "image" is more of a work-a-day hillbilly that a rocking guitar player.
I've played guitar since I was five years old. Image? It's part of me. Like my arm or leg...
I hear ya. I may not have started that young, but I've been plying well over 50% of my years on this planet. I don't think I actually have an "image", but It's like breathing to me.
Not part of an image but guitars and making music (noise ) are a part of who I am. A release and a way of letting my inner feelings out.
I’ve been playing guitar a lot or a little since I was 18, 40 years ago (a LOT for the first 10 of those years, very little for most of the past 30). My world has thankfully gotten small enough lately that I really don’t have an image anymore except to myself and those who’ve known me really well for a loooong time. And I think to them I’m a guy who’s always obsessively into SOME activity, whether photography, cycling, espresso, guitar, computer fiddling, cataloging Grateful Dead tapes, etc. At the moment Guitar is my overwhelming obsession again, but I don’t know if they pick up on the again part as much as the overwhelming obsession part. I know it’s a lifelong pursuit down at the molecular level - nobody else knows that about me like I know it about myself. To most who know me it’s probably just “Ray’s latest thing”. So it’s definitely part of my SELF image, but that’s probably about as far as it goes.
I don't know. You tell me.
I get pegged as a player every where I go.
Damn you look so cool!
My image is a "non-image" I guess.
First few years I played in bands I had an "image" - when people would find out I was a musician they would think, "Well that figures..."
Long hair, earring, cowboy boots, tight jeans, vests with puffy shirts (pre-Seinfeld.)
I finally got tired of keeping that whole thing up - it was a lot of work, to be honest.
I got a haircut, started dressing more comfortably - and then when people would find out I was a musician, it was like, "Wait, what? I thought you worked at a bank!"
My wife calls me the Clark Kent of the electric guitar...
We are all rock stars in the eyes of people who don't play a musical instrument.
No, we are not. My family keeps reminding me...
