NGD & other updated pics...

Picked up a new (to me) guitar a few days ago and while taking some pics of it, decided to take some shots of my other stuff as well. Been quite some time since I've taken any gear pics, so I'll just post those shots in this thread too.

Anyways...

The new guy...Schecter C1+

Can't seem to put this thing down since bringing it home. It's just a fun guitar to play. Neck is fast, action is low, it's all around incredibly playable. DD pups are quite sufficient, tone is great, and of course I'm a huge fan of the aesthetics. Tested one out years ago, loved it then and still do. Tried out a Hellraiser, and for me personally, the C1+ just felt alot better. I've been playing a loooong time and this instrument plays just as good as a alot of guitars with much higher price tags.








1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom...bought this guitar in the late 80's when I was a teenager. Got a hookup on it from a collector. I've bought and sold countless guitars, but this one has been with me the longest. I'll never get rid of it. If my son chooses to play, it will eventually be his. According to it's serial number, it was born on February 1st, 1978 in Nashville, TN.









More to come...

Beautiful man.

The Schecter is identical to the one I just picked up. Amazing guitar.

Of course, the LP is as well. Just classic.

I would love to be able to tell you more about this next guitar, but I have no idea who made it. It was given to me years ago by my grandfather (now 97 years old), who was friends with a couple local celebrity musicians, that are now deceased. Both played guitar on a televison show called the Hayloft Hoedown, and various other places around the country.

Original owner was Bernie Smith...seen here on the far left playing a guitar custom made for him by Gibson.



It then changed hands to his band mate and friend Shorty Chesser.



I'm guessing the guitar was made sometime in the late 50's to early 60's. I know my grandfather bought it from Shorty, but didn't know when. Just earlier tonight I found this in the case...



So at least I know that my grandfather owned the guitar in 1968.

And here she is...

So where do you live, now?

And what times are you and your family out of the house?

Do you by chance have a security system, or just those stickers saying you do?

Those things are just gorgeous... you're a lucky lucky man!

Nice guitars! It looks like the bridge is misplaced on that no-name guitar, the 6th string is hanging off the fretboard.

I think that's a Schaller tailpiece so I'm gonna guess no.

Congrats on the NGD Love the Schecter and the LP. The strat looking guitar reminds of those Japanese guitars that flooded the US in the late 60s early 70s but it's possible someone upgraded it or built it from parts. A lot of these are gaining value as collectibles.

I'm fairly sure you're right. All of the hardware is beginning to show it's age a bit, but there's a slight difference in the tailpiece vs. the other pieces. It was on the guitar when I bought it around 1988.

You could be right in that it's some kind of "Franken-strat". Here is a picture of the neck plate though.



Thanks again to all.

That LP Is gorgeous... You don't see enough cherry customs. And that Tailpiece looks like it is either original or a copy of the original because there were plenty of LPs around that time with a similar tail.

HNGD sir.
