There should be instructions on here somewhere, maybe a sticky. 

Anyhow, I use Photobucket.  Sign up for it, copy the IMG link, and paste it into your post.

My current rotations are: -

Azumi Victory
Thunder 1A
Westbury Deluxe and
Bambu (by Maya)

The Azumi is great - a bit Ibanezish, Gotoh pups and fantastic sound. Really smooth
1A is nice and light and fast low action
Westbury weighs a ton
So does Bambu. This has a bamboo through neck, hence the name.

After a while they disappear back into their cases and the others come out to play!

Here you go...









I gather that they only made about 20 or so. so was lucky to come across it. It doesn't have a serial number on it but it seems some do.

Thanks!

As I said, a lucky find. Advertised on eBay as "electric guitar" and little else in the listing...

mostly i bang on whatever is the latest completed project guitar
but a few that sit out alot are;

Spectrum FX - a rescue baby, was completely disassembled when i got it
now an awesome guitar, always in tune
i put on a set of Dean Markley strings, Misfits (11,13,17,28,38,48) and it really suits the guitar well
heavier guage than i usually use, but great feel and major sustain!

then there is this nice short-scale jobber (24") i put together a while ago
don't know who made the body, picked it up on ebay
the neck is a Squier Jagmaster
fake humbuckers, actually single coils inside
volume, volume, tone with p/p for phase reverse
great little twanger

this one sits out because i don't have a case it fits in
made in Japan, the brand name is most likely Liberty, according some folks over at the Electra forum
not super high quality, but quite good enough for some fun
original pickups are very microphonic, so gets played unplugged mostly
full hollowbody with arched front and back

my more high end guitars tend to get used and put away so as to prevent any accidents

I rotate most of these every month or so (Fender Squier Strat missing - out on loan). The one I play most is my natural Fender Lite Ash Telecaster, followed by the ancient Hohner Arbor Strat & its bass brother. The red and green Strat-type thing is a strange favourite... it was some lightweight cheap dust & bird-crap-covered three-pickup thing given to me for fixing someone's computer. I didn't really want it but eventually decided to make it a Punkcaster - new scratchplate with a high performance humbucker and no tone control (who uses 'em anyway!). I set up the neck, action & intonation, installed a three-position coil tap switch got some custom Riff-Raff decals made and play it to death when the mood takes me. There's no weight to it but sounds great in DACGCE, almost like a semi-acoustic
The only guitar I haven't bonded with is the MiM Fender Telecaster. Even a Tonerider neck pick-up mod didn't make me love it. Strange... I can't explain why! The Concord gets a good thrashing when the mood takes me and it's nicely (and genuinely) roadworn.
Some of these might have to go when my daughter comes to live with me; there's never enough space for guitary things and females. After all, they need somewhere to put 30 pairs of shoes.  Rolling Eyes

Firstly guys, thank you for taking the time to post to this topic (plus pics). Amongst mates that play we are always checking out each other's new arrivals and what's on the stands when we pop over.

It's been great to see a good range of manufacturers covered here too, including of course Westones and other Uncle Mats, plus one or two obscure gems.  I guess as players, appreciators and collectors of guitars we will inevitably always be looking for the one or as close as, if there is such a thing, but by the same token different guitars, more suited to different musical genres, can bring out something else in the player.

I wouldn't necessarily trust some of my "Daily Planks" (thanks for that gem Damian Very Happy ), in a live, first guitar environment, but if the luxury of a guitar tech was offered as part of a tour, I would definitely take a few others out from the stands just to give them some public airing and because at the end of the day they just feel so good to play....

Happy New Year guys, have a great one  Smile

As we speak my stand has a switchover, out goes the (hotter than the sun!) Washburn and in comes my Westbury Standard which I just rewired with the "50's wiring" on a pair of Dimarzio K-10's PAF, the mahogany body/neck lends a dark tone to these usually bright pups, so tried this 50's wiring out and while the tone pots are rendered almost useless, the pups certainly sound brighter, especially the neck.
awesome guitar these!
