    Got my hands on this Tiesco Del Rey in 1974- my 1st electric. She’s aged well & gets played regularly. Currently set up in open D for slide. 98DB4332-EA5D-4B27-B3CF-7A3C37A23BA4.jpeg D2082C2E-C761-4DB0-9154-C1B83737242C.jpeg

    Here's my '94 Standard, lit by the harsh light of the last solar eclipse. Check out how bright the brights are, and how deep the shadows. No Photoshop here.

    Nice guitars. My picture sucks. There is a ridiculously bright LED in there just to the right of the guitar.

    Nice catch! Yes, I bent it. I've never gotten around to straightening it. Guess it's a battle scar now.

    Currently, mine that I've had the longest is my Yamaha APX700II which I bought in 2012.

    My 1995 MIC Bullet series Strat with a full thickness body and swimming pool route. My parents bought it for me my second year of college when we were dirt floor poor and just starting to get back on our feet after almost a decade of hard times. It was originally black with a white PG and went through several transformations until I landed on this one. It will stay though I may refinish it the same color but better. It now has a set of Rose Robusta/Buff Beauty p'ups with 10 switching options.
