    Invaluable, priceless experience no doubt.

    There is a western swing guitar and fiddle master here I like to catch an occasional lesson from, just no time for regular weekly lessons between his gigging schedule and mine. I consider his knowledge and the chance to swap licks of serious benefit. Never stop learning, that is the goal. There is always something to be gained from other players.

    It seems I may have four that qualify
    My Casino and a local build, both really nice guitars
    And a pair of Epiphones a Wildcat and a Sheraton both currently up for sale. They are also nice gits but it's time to let them find a new place to live .

    The SG and the Tele are gone and I've added two CS Strats. The -335's are still alive and kicking DEB57FD7-A277-4101-8263-86284FA9718C.JPG

    Haven't had it long, but I sure am having fun with it. Had flat wounds when I got it, and just tried a set of PB 11s to get more out of it acoustically. It did make it louder for sure, but hasn't got the same character at all, plus the magnetic pup doesn't like PB. Gonna go back to the flats I guess, unless someone can make a good half way between the two suggestion?

    You have a lot of stands at your place.

    Though shalt not covet thy neighbors stands.

    I'm going to pick up a half dozen wall hangers soon, that's my big plan anyway.

    I just picked up this late 90s Epiphone Zephyr Blues Deluxe.
    Out-of-phase heaven and a 25.5" scale length - the perfect archtop for strat players.

    An arch top is probably going to be my next guitar purchase. A nice Epiphone Dot sounds good to me

    I have been after one for a while, but given I've already spent far too much of my not very disposable income on gear so far this year I may wait a bit...

    i used to own this one but i wasn't playing her, so she got traded for a 7 string .strandberg*; really nice guitar, though (2006 Ibanez GB-10):

    Used to have the Uptown 805e.
    Got it many moons ago @ Sshoenbergs near Tiburon, CA. Great place with great guitars. Eric builds great guitars.
    Anyway, the 805e didn't have a cutaway, but sounded really nice and played well to boot.
    The hand rubbed finish was beautiful!
    Hope you will get along with yours as well.

    The first one which needs no introduction (except that's it's a centre block....cause I couldn't decide between a WF or a 335) is in a truck on the way to me as we speak................
    The other two are my Flaxwood Liekki and Yamaha Troy Van Leeuwen sig. ImageUploadedByStrat-Talk1493391872.451934.jpg
