My first real guitar modded with my back coated textured acrylic.  Made from a 100 dollar Squire.  Wish I had made it from a MIM Strat, but it plays fine.  This inspired me to do three fully custom builds, entirely from scratch - hired a local luthier to rough cut body blanks and make necks to my design specs, and I will be shaping the bodies, inlaying the necks, finishing them, then setting up.  The quilted acrylic guitar will have gold EVO frets, and all gold hardware.  All these will have hand wound humbuckers by local winder, Turnbull.  

BTW, the Dune pattern in the top guitar was made from molds based on actual sand dune ripple photos from Mars, taken by the MRO spacecraft that is currently mapping the planet mars, and the "quilt" pattern below was made from photos of actual quilted maple, with some design freedom (I added some facial imagery - eyes looking at you, if you look for them)






Stratocasters are the most perfect aesthetic design ordained by God after the McLaren F1, Nudibranchs and the small of a womans back.

StratsRdivine My god, those are some beautiful guitars.

Not my guitar, but my brother's custom Jackson DK1 he ordered in 2005, with a beautiful paint job done by Dan Lawrence.

Also while I'm here, here are some pictures of my father's home-built Stratocaster. The neck is maple, ebony fretboard, and the body was made out of a slab of plywood. The pickups in the guitar are a set of Fender Custom Shop pickups (can't remember what era they're based on, but I believe they're '60 something, possibly '65.

Ippon Can definitely agree.

My amplifier. Clean solid-state amplifier built by my father, I believe it's 60W. One of the channels is based on a Fender '65 Twin Reverb, the other a Fender '59 Bassman. The spring reverb in it is amazing as well.
Side note: the microphone in front of the amp is an AKG D310, and yes, I know it's not plugged in.

Wow, some really amazing guitars on this thread. I have a relatively small collection of gear, but some of it is very tasty too!

Here's my latest axe:

It's a Strandberg custom shop. Made in Sweden, with a swamp ash body with maple top, roasted maple neck, Seymour Duncan Pegasus and Sentient set, and a 26.5"-28" scale length. The rest of the build was standard. 


This is another nice axe that I got a few months ago. Very hard to find these in this condition nowadays: 


It's a Fender HM Strat. Originally used to be a pink finish, but it's aged nicely to a flaming orange. Guitar is entirely stock other than the control knobs because the original plastic got soft and broke apart. A very nice guitar, it has an interesting radius. 


Hope I don't get a warning for this last pic. I noticed that a few posts above mine had more than three pics in them, and the rules state that it's okay to have three pics, IIRC. This is a really sweet bass that I just had to share. 



It's an ESP Horizon-II Five-String bass made in their custom shop in Japan. No markings anywhere on this other than a serial number on the back of the neck, really weird. There's ESP written on the truss rod cover though. I really love the fact that you can cop both P tones as well as J tones with the different pups. And since there are two volume controls, you can blend the pups and that takes stuff into really interesting sonic territory.

I've bought an Epiphone SG-400 yesterday. My cat seems to like it as well.
