Thank you, it has been a blast to play!

Those Duesenbergs are really gorgeous guitars.  Never been able to play one but I would like to try at some point.

 

I stopped by the shop to get some supplies and ended up walking away with another Martin.  This one sounds fantastic.  I guess electric guitars are big here, but I just love the sound of an acoustic.

I can't blame you, especially if you're playing Martin's like your new one. Wow that's a nice top, great book matching.

Yeah, I can't get enough of the Martin sound.

 

Picked up this one last night.

Decided to get some variance in the collection so I picked up a brilliant hand made form Boucher and a Gibson J-45 Custom this week.

I've been actively moving guitars around lately. Updates:

 

Reverend Kingbolt. Traded an amp and cash for this guy. Love the neck and body shape, the pickups maybe not so much.

 

 

Squier Bullet Strat - Got this for $20 off CL. Needed some work, have it in almost playable condition. New bridge, Tusq nut, and tuners. Needs to have the frets leveled and crowned, which will be my next project as soon as I get the tools.

 

 

Got my amp back I traded for the Kingbolt. Paid the same price I got it for used, with the custom cover and amp stand at no extra charge.

(Like loaning someone your car and getting it back with new tires)

 

 

 

Traded the Kingbolt for a 2008 Charger with Kent Armstrong Stealth P90 pickups. Like the tone of these pups much better than the Kingbolt.

 

 

 

And last but not least, I picked up a bass rig yesterday. Never played bass at all, but had been wanting to try. This literally fell into my lap from a co-worker. $175 for a 1999 Ibanez EDB600 bass with HSC, tuner, cable, and scale book, plus a Hartke B60 amp. Guitar needed a setup and cleaning, plus some new strings, but is in decent condition.

I've got a bunch of other guitars, but I don't have pictures of them handy. For now, here's a picture of my Takamine EG-334C.

My moto has always been, "If Takamine is good enough for The Boss, it's good enough for me." LOL :smile:

 

That's because Bruce Springsteen has appeared onstage playing Takamine acoustic guitars for many years.

Then, why "StratocasterMan"?

 

I thought that Bruce had always used a Tele...

Bruce uses a Tele for an electric, but everytime I've ever seen him playing acoustic, he's used a Takamine.

 

If you look around, you can find plenty of history of The Boss playing Takamine acoustics. ;) 

 

Springsteen has been playing Takamine acoustics for many years. A Google image search will find plenty of pictures of Springsteen playing Takemine acoustics.

The guitar he is most noted for is actually a 50's Fender Esquire.
