Here's my currently playable guitars.   http://i58.tinypic.com/2qdd5ap.jpg   back row: Ibanez GSR 200, Gibson SG special front row: Epiphone LP standard, PRS SE custom, Gibson 60's Tribute LP   I also

My main two instruments here. My Fender Squier Stratocaster which cost about $200 with a beginner kit including a small amp, carrying case, strap, etc. And my Washburn Taurus Series T12 which was worth about $400 and has never let me down.



Here's my acoustic I got over the summer. ~$300 Simon and Patrick Songsmith. Sounds and plays beautifully, just doesn't have a pickup installed.



And my last guitar (Oscar Schmidt by Washburn) was a free gift from a friend who didn't use it anymore. Rough around the edges, needs some adjustments and to have the volume knob adjusted with some fresh strings, but for free it plays great and is nice to keep in D Standard.

My setup now:



The guitar is an Epiphone Korina Explorer, but it doesn't see a whole lot of action.


The basses are an Ibanez GSR200 (my steady workhorse) and Epiphone Thunderbird Pro V (love it but needs an electronics overhaul).

I built this from kit parts.  The kit had everything except the body and pick guard.  I had a nice piece of wood around but it took some creative cutting.  The only shape that would fit was a cross between a Tele and a Jag.


I had to improvise a pick guard, so I sacrificed and old 45.


I've only been playing the bass for the last several months.  I don't like the body that I made.  I'll make another body before I post a picture of it.

Here is my current collection! I got the Yamaha from a teenager off of craigslist who NEVER played it, and was in perfect condition..Payed a whole $25 and some xbox 360 games for it. Minus the smudge marks its bass-icly (xD) brand new and a perfect sounding slap bass...*shutters*




My main girl is Shirley aka my Ibanez,  i play her in every situation. Heavy gauged strings for those Dream Theater solos and all around awesome sounding when im playing standard songs as well. Not a very great slap bass (due to the strings) but she gets the job done. I obtained her from my best friend who never played her and she sat in the corner collecting dust. Nobody puts Shirley in the corner. So for my 21st birthday he gave it to me. 



Last but not least, is my ibanez guitar. A co-worker of mine has at least 20 different guitars, so one day i told him i wanted to learn how to play and he let me choose from a small bundle and said $50 bucks for any of these...I was like a kid in the candy store i didn't know which one to choose, i've never played guitar before so i attempted to try all of them out and this one just caught my eye the most.

My Collection, in it's current, and most likely final form, though I may pick up a Tony Iommi Epi or Gibson now that they'r reissuing them.



2 American Standard Fender Stratocasters; Black and White is outfitted with Dimarzio Super 

Distortion in the Bridge, Fat 50's in the middle, and A DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary in the neck.

Dave Murray's electronics, basically, if not the exact looks.  The switch is 3-way, not 5.
