Here's mine:

On the left is my Epiphone Les Paul Jr., and on the right is my Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Special. I've had the LP for about six months and it only cost $10 at a garage sale! I've had the Jaguar for about a month and I also got it used. I found it on the Guitar Center website for $99 and free shipping...who says you can't find good cheap gear?! :D

@irongoats http://postimage.org/

copy/paste the BBcode part including the [img ] & [/img ] it's free no registration, takes a second i'm only using their services.

it should be like that:

[img ]http://s7.postimg.org/6yvh0hrej/2_PCS_Funny_sticker_for_your_Electric_or_Acoustic.jpg[/img ]

(exepting the added spaces i've added after both img to fool the BBcode generation.)

 

when searching your guitar reference on google you can specify .png in the search field, you'll have guitars displayed without white background.

Nice SG.  Careful of the Snark on the headstock...some of them are tight enough to leave marks in the nitrocellulose.

@sleepy You must have the cheapest guitar acquisition in guitar history, 10 bucks only!! wow, I wish they have garage sales like that here. Was that LP in desperate need of some love or was playable when you got it?

 

It says Gibson on the truss rod cover so you might be so lucky that you even got a korean one

Took some pics this morning of my beautiful ladies. They are both 2011 ESP Standard Horizons, and are superb instruments. Axemusic.com  here in Canada still has one of each of these in stock as of a couple days ago.

 

The red FR model is about $2199 and the blue NT is about $1800 . Considering the 2014 models are made the same but with different headstocks, but cost $5000, I would think hmmmm.. wtf. These guitars are 95% as good as the PRS Studio I had, which cost $1400 more. The other 5% is made up by their own electronics and pickups,  which are the best I've heard. Play feel is as good or better on the ESP guitars.

 

Cheers all.  Vince aka Kasnitch

My parents are actually the ones that found it. They go to quite a few garage/estate sales and are pretty good at spotting deals, haggling, etc. If you're willing to do a little refurb, there are some amazing deals to be had, and not only on intruments.

 

As for the LP Jr., she does have a few battle scars; there's what appears to be a finish crack on the bass side of the neck right where the headstock joins the neck, but it hasn't affected playability. All we did when they brought her home was polish the frets, clean and oil the fretboard, and change strings...basically gave it a standard setup. I have since then swapped out the tuners for a set from GFS (which made a world of difference in terms of tuning stablility), but it wasn't absolutely necessary. Thanks for the tip re: the truss rod cover, I'll have to do a little research and find out where she's from!

Kasnitch, those are beautiful ESP's. I used to own an early 90's ESP M-2 Custom in Lemon yellow, best guitar I have put my hands on to date; I expect the newer ESP's are only an improvement. bought it used for 300 in '05, traded it for an 87' Ricky 4001. Still a massive regret letting it get away, Rick's come up for sale often but that guitar was something special!

 

 

that said, Here's what i'm currently playing (Bass porn heavy!):

 

What I do most of my recording on,

 

MIJ Fender Aerodyne Precision Classic, P/J tone, Super thin/light P body, Jazz neck profile, one of my favorite workhorses!

my Eb bass, Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

And the two that don't see the outside world very often, I think both were around 400 models made:

 

The Boat Anchor! Gibson Silverburst Explorer Bass:

 

I picked this up because it is identical to Skwisgaar skwigelf's 6-string "Thunderhose" explorer, in bass form. :)

Hipshotted Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst Bass (07' Guitar of the Week promo):

 

The newest addition, went looking for something that would make it easier to move around, came up with this one.

I love them all but I've really taken to the short scale SG lately, The finish really comes to life in low light situations and it feels like I work less to do more. :)

Those are some sexy bass guitars. That SG made the hair on my arms and neck stand up lolz. I hope she plays as smoking hot as she looks ?

Hello everybody, I'm not an experienced guitar player or anything so I don't really know all that much about the different sort of guitars but I have a Stratocaster ( Mexico edition :) ) which I've spray painted orange, it used to be ordinary black. Well enough said, here it is! Posted ImageSorry for the bad quality, only got a shitty iphone 4 to take pictures with
