    My local jam night has one of those Mesa Boogie Lonestars in the backline. It sounds immense! Even better, it matches my Fender Lonestar Strat. :D

    Nice guitars too, especially the Ice Blue Strat and the 335.

    That ES-335 just doesn’t look like it fits in. I’d be glad to give that ugly duckling a good home, as a favor to your other guitars ;).

    JK, sweet pic!

    Thank you! The Jr is one of the newest editions and still taking me a little time to find where it fits for me but I got it for a steal and it's nice, light and very nice fit and finish.

    Thanks! It's my oldest amp and something I had stoped playing for a while but I think it's making a comeback.

    The Ice Blue Strat is my most recent build and it's fantastic. Has a very rare set of CS69 pickups with Abby's initials and a RWRP middle pickup.

    Hahaha. Thanks very much, it has a super beefy neck and kicks major ass!

    LOL! You'll have to pry it from my cold dead hands. Best sounding and playing 335 I have come across. Might be the jem of my collection.

    Very nice, love the block inlays. Gibson really did it right with the 335.

    Hahaha, thanks! I use the rigs mostly for recording and am always tweaking the knobs so it's a little easier to have it within arms reach.

    That's the body from my '08 USA Tele Deluxe. The guitar was super heavy but the neck played great so all these years later I decided to swap the body out hoping I would play it more. Unfortunately it still doesn't get played. I think I may just not be a tele guy.

    It's actually butterscotch blonde. See above text for more info.
