Some Bass Playing Guy: That article should be called "Guitars that look like ass".
433: [i192.photobucket.com image 400x225]'65 Mustang, '78 Musicmaster bass, '73 Mustang-the '65 is a pre-CBS model, but I prefer the '73 for the most part.[i192.photobucket.com image 320x240]A custom 12 string, by Kelly Barber of Action Sound, Hawkins, TX. Uses a '60's era Fender Villager neck.[i192.photobucket.com image 640x360]Fender gear is swell.The black jaguar is a baritone.And that's more than enough showing off. Way more than enough!
AeAe: That's a nice collection. I have about a dozen Strats and Tele's. then I started buying LPs and SGs.
ristst: Oh, and I use an Orange amp.
Craw Fu: The lego guitar I'm sure sounds terrible, but I would love to have the Millennium Falcon guitar hanging on my wall.
433: AeAe: That's a nice collection. I have about a dozen Strats and Tele's. then I started buying LPs and SGs.I'm a slender guy, and a Les Paul puts my back out quickly. I don't think I could play one for the bulk of a set. SG's are beasts, I love them! I played a '68, and the neck on it was one of the most un-gibson necks I've played. It felt like it belonged on a 335 - slender, nice radius, and fast. Many Gibson necks are difficult for me - that's how I wound up gravitating to the short-scale Fender models. SG's are built to rock, I like the attitude they impart when strapped on.
433: ristst: Oh, and I use an Orange amp.What is the appeal of Orange amps? What is it that they do particularly well over others? They're neat-looking, for sure, but there must be something about them I am not hearing.
AeAe: You should check out the 58 and 59 LP Custom Shop Reissues then. A little pricey, but they specifically pick very light bodies even with the maple cap. Like 8 or 9 lbs.

Like 8 or 9 lbs.Oh, that's much more agreeable. If/when I go for an LP, I'll definitely work with the custom shop over nit-picky stuff on the neck. The Gibson model that appeals to me most, though, is the Flying V. That's where it's at! I haven't found a stock neck on them that I like, and the fingerboards have been almost completely flat, which may appeal to some, but it's unusual to me. But as it is, I'm not at a stage where I think I can't play without one. Still, I look at them, and gawk. At one concert, the frontman held his V with one hand, played it with that hand down the neck as it slid down in his hand, and passed the guitar over our heads as he waved and smiled. If I ever get to half that good, then I'll call up the custom shop!
LegacyDL: xaks: Here's what they SHOULD have shown[wonderingbrit.files.wordpress.com image 640x480]That guitar looks old enough to drink alcohol.
kling_klang_bed: Coolest I've had the chance to play was Steve Vai's Jem model over at Guitar Center. Obviously out of my price range though, ended up sticking with a reasonable $100 Ibanez model./subby

BadJazz: On the bass side, I use a Tiny Terror 500 with my Bag Ends, and it is superb. Volume and tone for days from a lunch pail.
Pituophis: CSB: Dude lent me a '56 Les Paul Gold Top; two years ago I bought my very own Custom Shop Les Paul 56 Historic Gold top.
