    Took delivery of a second-hand Eastman T386 as a backup to my T486. Just needed a bit of stretching of the strings and re-adjustment of the intonation. Plays so nicely now!

    Side note: check out that nice rich rosewood colour; so many higher-end brands seem to put out very pale-looking rosewood.

    My only two - Wildkat Royale and a Johnny A from Gibson Custom. They both have the same unusual construction with back & sides carved from a solid block of mahog, no seams and no center block. When they carve the bodies, islands are left under the bridge mounts and tailpiece studs. So they don't require floating bridges like most true hollowbodies.

    I sold the Ibanez that I posted waaayyy back. But recently assembled a 125 copy (I think that’s what it’s modelled on) kit from The Fret Wire and upgraded most of the parts especially the pickup which is a Kent Armstrong (designed, sadly not one of his handwound ones - but sounds great).

    I used black leather dye and several coats of pure tung oil which is a flat finish.

    My Guild Starfire. I really love this guitar. When you crank just before it starts to feed back, the top vibrates like it’s alive.

    I think we need to see a photo of that. Does it look a little like it’s predecessor:
