I'll start with my pic, and I think all following posts should include a pic - no slacking. This is me with the 12 string project strung as a six string until I finish the rest of the stuff.

OK... me next, then....



...the SP1012 and I in a German bunker in St Helier.



Someone got all excited seeing Damians big game mouse rifle, so here's a Spectrum MX with a 155mm Coastal Artillery piece at Noirmont Point....

and lastly, note the Westone sticker on the bumper...

OK

Against my better judgement here is my picture. As you can see, I tend to dress for comfort with T shirt, joggers and slippers. The guitars in the immediate background are my stripey "coffee table" numbers, including two Thunders, Vantage, a couple of Aria Pros and Hondo. In the cases are the 3 Westone Rainbows. I have others guitars which are packed away in their cases. The vast majority are Matsumoku, the rest vintage Japanese and one or two old Korean axes.

OK here goes - my collection consists of about 25 guitars, 1 MIK one US made and the rest Japanese. Here are my Westones and Electras together. I just realized how hard it is to photograph several guitars at once!
My Concord SX, blueburst and red X199 Electras, Spectrum 3 and FX, Rainbow I,Spectrum bass, Invicta and Dynasty.


Heres me, picture by daughter Autumn.

I am working on trying to figure out how to get them in a pic also. Need a wide angle lens maybe. Hope to have one in soon as I am waiting on new arrivals. I scored the Westone Snakeskin Bass, a nice player grade Pantera red Bass, as well s a few more Electras. Trying to keep them inder the radar this time is quiet a challenge so wish me luck.

Ahahaha.... Careful, there Arthur.... Doesn't pay to upset the distaff side, eh!! Laughing As for the photo, just take two or three shots in sequence and then stitch them together with a panorama program; I do it all the time and it's easy!!
We'd all like to see your herd, I'm sure!!

Much better than my ugly mug. A nice picture anyway.

Got tired of looking at the old dude above doing the Clint Eastwood impression, either that or he's fallen asleep.

We need a Westone Fest so everyone can enjoy them also. thanks for the comments. The Jeep is alot of fun also. It is a 1968 Mutt(Vietnam War era M151A1 ) These were manufactured by Ford and were the replacements for the older M 38 Willys model Jeeps od WWII and Korea. I love my Westones and especially the transitional year models from Electra/Westone to Westone. Now I got egas for am M60 replica and mount for the jeep too. What a bummer. Thanks all and sorry it took me so long to get the pic posted and done.Arthur

Stands? You need racks, man! I know you have some, but ALL your guitars should be on racks. Except for the V-shaped, X-shaped, and Rail bass. Those don't exactly work on racks. Laughing
