Very nice.
I thought Eastman made knock off copies of guitars. But the El Rey’s is an original design of their own…

Who me ??? Oh the guitar is a Eastman El Rey 3. It’s actually a archtop and is completely hollow… like a 335 but it can pretend to be a Les Paul or PRS. Ebony fingerboard, Flame Maple Binding. Hand carved flame maple top… it’s a amazing instrument. A local guy opened a shop to sell his collection… this was one of the guitars in his collection. It’s a 2012 but it’s been in his warehouse waiting for me 10 years. I play it every day. I strung it with flat wound 11’s and play jazz standards ( or try to ) on it. I 💕 it and I can let my ES-175 rest.

The cool thing is it sounds like a big arch top Jazz box. But with the flip of a switch on the Lil’ Mesa Boogie it’s high gain heaven and it’s the same guitar.

Ha ha. We need to add this photo to that thread with all the pictures of musicians that took it a little too far.
You should have seen the looks on the faces of the kids when I played at a community event a couple years ago. Some were running to the front and others were running like mad to get away. LOL
Definitely got a bunch of funny looks when I went for a ride on the motorcycle around the neighborhood too.

Heyyyyy. That's a really good idea you've got there with the hooks to hold the cables. I might have to try that so I can get all of mine out of the way. Right now they're all coiled up and lying in a pile in the bottom of one of my amp stands aka side/end tables.

They were on both sides of my bed at the last house but I don't need them here so I'm using them to get the amps up and off of the floor so they aren't sending sound at my shins & feet. As a bonus, now I've got some shelves to store all of my maintenance stuff on instead of it covering my dresser 😆
