Guitars of ER

I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

I have several (because time + money + obsession + tone!!11!)

I've only built a few instruments. Last one was a Martin OM clone a couple years ago. (Sorry for auto-rotation. Any easy solutions to that?)

Probably doesn’t count but my last guitar was a Martin 000-28EC (Eric Clapton), really loved it. Don’t have a guitar anymore as I lost interest after years of not getting any better, I guess I hit my max potential and it wasn’t that great...

I love those short-scale EC models!

I took up playing in my old age because I figured it was about the biggest challenge I could tackle, and I would never be "done." I was right on both counts.

I will probably never perform, but I can still entertain myself with fingerstyle picking. And if I take too long a break from playing, I try to relearn everything. It gets a little easier each time, but it's a bit like Groundhog Day....

Here are my Kramer USA vintage DMZ 3000 electric bass and guitars from my teenage years into early retirement. Plus photos of my Fender American Stratocaster and Fender American Jazz bass. I also have a 1974 Gibson Les Paul custom and 1975 Fender Precision bass at our condo in Florida (also from my teenage years). Needless to say, all these guitars are worth considerably more than what I paid for them. It pays to buy American made guitars and basses.

Nice. I have a Taylor GS Mini Koa -- amazed at the small-body tone. And, well, Koa!

Oh, my. Here come the heavy-hitters. Nice curly Koa, JH! Custom Martin?

And I lost count of the strings on that wild DF-A10. The width of the fretboard frankly scares me. I just listened to a sound clip. Heavenly.

I donít know anything about playing guitar, but the guitars shown in this thread so far are true works of art.

No - it's a custom Larivee and one of several I travel with - love the wide flat fingerboards

Here's part of the top of that same guitar - with a shameless plug

I'm thinking we need a thread about guitar straps - Looks like you have the same Moody straps I love .

You could have retired earlier if you bought the cheap ones at guitar center

Drool. I should have recognized that Larrivee bling. I have one of their low-end parlors (03-series) and it still has a taste of his famous wood bling.
