Show us your guitars!

Mine actually has a really subtle quilted maple top. Not immediately apparent in other than bright light. Most would think it is just black. The neck is 5-piece laminated, with the 3 main pieces (maple?) quarter-sawn. It’s a really interesting guitar. Seymour Duncans and Tonepros hardware.

If you’re set on a V, and if you can, track down a Korina Hamer flying V. They’re actually a better guitar than many of the Gibsons.

I know what you mean. I own a Hamer American Studio. A much nicer guitar IMO than the Les Paul (which I also own). It’s just that my dealer has this used Gibson V (and a couple of Epiphone Vs), and I’m not happy to buy a guitar unless I can try it first.

Quick story: I was in a small guitar store in San Francisco a few years back. Co-incidentally, Joe Bonamassa was also there. (We’d been to his concert the night before, and had joked that it would be funny to bump into him). A small brush with fame, but while I was there, he bought a used Hamer Flying V. He said that it would be a good touring back up for his vintage Gibson Vs.

My lot. Gathering dust a bit as taking a break from gigs.
In the process of deciding which are to leave the nest. Need to rationalise. Difficult as they each mean somethibg for various reasons.
Excuse the music room clutter. In the middle of clearing the decks as this room will be returned to the wife once the extension is completed.

Yes, I need to cull my herd as well - have one up for sale now (2018 SG) and need more to follow.

And yet I can think of 3 or 4 more I’d like to buy…but that is not going to happen.

And your favourite is?

One I rarely, if ever play…my 1986 Kramer Baretta with the Kline graphic. Had it since I was 18. So 35 years. Cost me about 6 months wages at the time. Its a one trick pony, but it does that trick unbelievably well.
As a daily driver the Luke 3 is hard to beat. An impeccable guitar.
