I just got an AS73 on Saturday. The sh-t phone on my Blackberry does it no justice.



I'll take a better pic later.

Agreed on the Hamer.

I might have my Wildkat by then, though. I would still want that sheraton, even with a wildkat.

I would like an ES-335/9 but I refuse to pay 2k for a plywood box. PRS hollowbody I/II with a piezo bridge would be nice also...

There's some beautiful guitars on show in this thread!

My main guitar is an Ibanez AFS77T, if I'm honest it's not a particularly well-built guitar but it sounds excellent and that's all that matters! One day when I actually have money I'm going to get a Rickenbacker 360 and/or a Gibson ES-335.

I've only ever played 1 semi-hollow - An Epiphone dot w/ Gibson P-94's. I loved the tone out of them, and was surprised that they're a lot lighter than I thought - lighter than a Les Paul, I'd say. Gorgeous little sound as well - smokey blues that translated well as sincere rock n' roll

I know this is the hollow/semihollow thread, but...

...I prefer this L5.



Well, finally somebody with TASTE! Not sure about those low impedence
pickups though. The L5S was Gibson's most bestest solidbody ever! He're my two
posing with thier hollowbody sister (Super400 again...)

I do believe it's the biggest body jazz guitar Gibson makes.

What is it then? Just cause I remember reading the Total Guitar review of the WB sig, and it looked exactly the same. So is it the same shape and stuff with different hardware/electronics?

And trans black sounds good, the one I saw was this awful flame graphic thing that just ...

That's just a tacky version of the Alleykat called the Flamekat. It's pretty gay.
