    Hi!
    I'm an old bass player (29 years of activity) that had lots of guitars around cause my brother plays the guitar since I was... no, before I was a teenager. And I hated them. :)))
    I liked a lot listen to the guitar but I hated to play it: too little, the strings too close, the frets too small... It looked like a toy in the hands of a man.
    BUT
    But some years ago, don't know how, I felt something new. I had a new curiosity. I began to play the guitar because I wanted to play the music I listen to. And... I like it!
    Now I'm a guitar player too and a kind of guitars collector.
    And I still play the bass.
    With seven Stratocaster (soon eight?) I can tell I like them. :)

    Sorry for my English and for my mistakes...

    We will need pictures of the guitars and bass to verify your story. ;)

    Let's begin with my Les Paul guitars.
    The picture is not good (sorry).
    There are:
    A LP custom '57 20th anniversary
    A LP custom figured cobra burst
    A LP historic '58
    A LP Slash custom anaconda burst
    A LP Slash standard 2008.

    But the last one left some months ago. I didn't like it very much and I wanted to keep only the custom shops. I have another LP that is not in this picture: a Zakk Wylde bullseye.

    I called this picture: find the intruder, because there is a kind of "Les Paul": a PRS 594 singlecut McCarty. Great guitar, I think.

    That one is the Slash custom anaconda.

    And here is the Bullseye, lightweight like the marble...

    Thanks!
    I'd like to improve the "LP family". Don't know when but I'd like to have in the future a '59. Perhaps a deluxe, too. A standard of the nineties? Who knows what else...
    Never stop to dream.

    Of course, Davie is so famous.

    I live in Rome but I come from the south of Italy. Sicily is wonderful.

    Grazie! Molti di noi amano il Canada perché dicono che è un Paese tranquillo mentre l'Italia è sempre un gran casino* ahahah.

    It looks like you need to add a few Stratocasters to your collection!

    Welcome!
