Yeah, I know about them. I might end up getting a Tele Deluxe clone from them, instead of a Fender reissue.

They pretty much all look the same and have a big hole

Don't feed me straight lines like that, because I WILL say "The same goes for all your girlfriends."

Also, Chad K., stop telling people about it, eventually those parts will run out and *I* will be out of options for getting a relatively inexpensive, well-made guitar.

Damn, Dog, my bad.  Lots of souped-up Kay, Harmony, Silvertone and Sovereign acoustics there, too.  I have an Alvarez acoustic I'm crazy about, but I've thought about purchasing some tricked-out ginormous dreadnought acoustic from them.

I once played an all mahogany Alvarez.  It sounded really bright and had great tone.  If I had known about them before I bought my Washburn, I would definitely have tried to get it.

They were all fairly cute, so I guess so.

Putting my Squier back together? I had a pure evil idea about it yesterday.

Throw one of those huge-ass Tele humbuckers in it. Mwahahaha.

Wow those subway guys are frikkin' awesome.

I wonder how the Hoyer 335 they got there sounds. I fell in love with the picture, and it's only 700$. Speaking of which, do they ship internationally?

You guys recommend buying guitars made by these chaps, are they close to the original sound?

For the most part, I'd think so. They're using all the same stuff that Fender and Dano did. Haven't had a chance to play one yet, though.

I have an Alvarez 6 string, 12-string and acoustic bass, and they've got the nicest sound.

Every Thursday, I go to guitar club at my school and listen to a bunch of kids in Iron Maiden T-shirts play Metallica riffs for 45 minutes straight on their bastard Strat copies.

I basically only go cause the teacher supervisin' is a cool guy and we end up talking about 90s psych bands most of the time.

Today however, someone brought in a low-end Gretsch. Nothing fancy, an Electromatic of some sort. But that it's all it took to remind me just how gay I am for semi-hollow guitars. It was so fun playing the damn thing.

I'm thinking of even making a homebuilt semi-hollow just so I can get a nice, healthy screech from it when I put her next to the amp. I'm thinking Bigsby trem and Gretsch roller bridge + locking tuners on a Fender neck (probably Warmoth).

If I figure out how to post a link to send money to my PayPal, will any of you do it?

I'll drink to that, New Person!

Also, WHY THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE NOT TELLING ME HOW BEAUTIFUL MY KAY IS. HOP TO IT.

No no no, man.  You got it all wrong. It's a Kay.  It's not supposed to be beautiful. It's like telling somebody their beat old 50's Chevy truck is cool because its beautiful, when its actually cool because its a beat up old Chevy truck.  My old Kay, the Dirty Kay, was a '54 Rocketline beat to hell with a bad yellowed lacquer refin and a neck like a got-damn 2x4.  It sounded like the blues all on its own, and I loved it.  It started seperating at the neck, and I traded it to a knwoledgeable repair guy with some other guitars for an upright.  I still miss that guitar.

Yeah, that's why it's a Thinline Tele. It's more slender and semi-hollow.

I didn't think the real Thinline Telecasters were any more slender. Just hollow.

I wouldn't call it a Thinline Tele because that's generally reserved for the '69 and '72 designs with the same name. Fender themselves market the TC-90 as their only "Other Guitar" (which is pretty weird, haha). See here:
http://www.fender.com/products//search.php?section=guitars&cat=otherguitars

Hollow guitars are awesome for feedback. Semi-hollows like the ES-335 are a bit more easy to get feedback with than solid bodied guitars, but the full-hollows such as the Epiphone Casino and big jazz boxes do it in a snap at pretty low volumes. I have a FuijiGen factory Japanese Epiphone Casino and it sounds fantastic. I still prefer my Fenders overall though.

The Gibson website talks about their CS-356 as a semi-hollow that "doesn't make it look like you're playing your daddy's guitar". I don't know, I just love that big ol' body. I think it looks pretty good on me. Then again, I'm pretty tall, so it's kindof flattering to have it on me.

Oh, I totally win at this thread!  After buying my 1st second guitar I pushed myself into debt and bought another electric guitar, a bass and an acoustic, all within about 8 months.. I went a bit crazy.

Here they are



That is Skaddi and Saga (Norse Goddesses, for winter/ice and a random drinking partner of Odins) In that order

Specifically they are (L) ESP-LTD DV-8R w/ livewires and an ESP-LTD MH400NT



This is Eir.  The norse goddess of Healing.  She's a Seagull something-or-other.  Seagull has weird model numbers I can never remember.  Bought her for a steal of a deal $500.  She was over looked and marked down hella-good before I snatched her up.



And that's my Bass.  Hedrun.  Who's a norse-goddess of something-or-other.

She's an ESP-LTD B2005.  Ebony Fretboard, no fret-markings but the 30 year aniversary @ the 12th fret.

Sexy.. plays like a dream too.  I love Ebony.

sorry i don't have a photo or a digital camera (mine broke last week when i dropped it in the swamp) but my bass is warwick streamer 5 string in red finish.
but at the moment i currently looking for a jazzier bass preferably fretless any suggestions?, im leaning to a fender at the moment.
and yes i know double bass is better for jazz, but i don't have 4 grand in my back pocket.

My pride and joy, the guitar I love most in my collection, is the '72 Telecaster Custom reissue. 'Buckers in the neck and bridge. It's got great chnk, great jangle, and if you find the right amp it has a majestic clean tone too. You can do fiery blues, a warm soloing tone, it works for metal, it works for indie, it works for prog - it just does everything I could possibly want.

Fender Mexican Standard + Seymour Duncan Lil' 59? It's a humbucker that's the size of a Tele bridge pickup.

Yeah, it's all over their site that they don't do emails.  It sounds crazy in this day and age, but letters or phone calls are pretty much the only way to go with them.

Also, you can direct link guitars and basses if you open them in a new tab. Accessories don't have their own pages, however.

I never thought I'd see a Giger series Ibanez outside of the online store. Awesome paintjob, awesome artist. How's it sound?

Pretty much like you would expect it to, since it's mahogany; nice and warm, plus the sustain goes on forever, despite not being the heaviest guitar I've seen. I really need to replace the pickups though. The guitar is already a couple full notches above acceptable and I'm giddy at the thought of getting some duncans or dimarzios, I just haven't pulled the trigger yet due to indecision.


Guitars like that eastwood aren't really my style (as I'm sure people have guessed by now :D), but I must admit it sure looks classy.
