This is my desk chair. I jam on this all the time. I don't have a name for it, and I don't ever intend on naming it either.

Yes, it does look like that, doesn't it.

I have a few electric guitars, bass, keyboards, USB synth pads, midi mixing boards for beats/EDM, etc, etc lots to jam on. Planning on buying a pearl roadshow drum set soon, as well. This is my most recent acoustic purchase, a Rogue.

TBH, I've never played a bad washburn.

Though I have only played 2, and one was an N4, so...

This is getting by far the most playing time atm:




I made it, the bridge mounts directly on the biscuit tin via holes in the plank, and it sounds a lot better than it looks,. I'm thinking of electrifying it.

This. One of the new American Pros which I bought back in February. It was my gift to myself for completing my first year of learning guitar. Feels, and looks, great to me, and makes practicing and playing fun. This was the day I brought it home.

Nice work.


The Washburn I'll always remember was a one-piece prototype electric someone I knew had. Thing vibrated like it was alive.


My main guitar, mostly on though for a brief period off, is my stock Carvin DC127 (neck-thru you know), currently with an Alumitone humbucker. (Before that I had the Deathbucker in there, which is great, too, but the Alumitone has just enough gain, and is a little more balanced - though the DB is very balanced for a high gain pick-up.)

It's pretty balanced in tone and weight, is fairly light, and plays pretty easy. 





My next in line is this Klein re-make, that a Chinese company I found makes if you ask for it, also now with an Alumitone humbucker. It plays most like I've felt a guitar I wanted should play. And despite evidence I've seen that wood type makes no difference, this sounds a little richer than the DC with the same pick-up. It's not my main guitar because, despite being ergonomic, I have to push my elbow out and hike up my right shoulder a little to pick correctly.

Here's the exact bass I bought from Sweetwater. A Yamaha TRBX 305. They took professional shots of it for me to inspect before they shipped it.

Sweetwater are pretty great like that.

Thomann took beauty shots of my exact FGN before they shipped it out. And they now use those studio shots of my guitar in the official product listing.

But how can you play a guitar with [whatever's meant to be wrong with the cutaway, I forget what it is]?

Seriously, though, I've started putting money aside to buy at least one guitar when I'm abroad in Japan next year, and while I'm likely to get something Fendery first, if I feel rich enough after doing that there's a very real chance I'll grab myself one of those FGNs too

I have no go-to guitar or interesting story to go along with it. Just a big ol collection that I use almost equally. Too many to post here, just go to my profile pictures if you want to see them.

@justin_webb94: the Klein re-make was $650, shipped.

Nice inexpensive guitars are all over now. I got this Ibanez GXE something (basswood/maple/quilted sapelle top) for $250 a few years ago from a local guy. They go for about that still online. Stays in tune, long sustain, plays easy. Sings a bit.

Full Shred in it, which is a little too hot for my tastes, but still dynamic enough. I'm thinking of switching in a DiMarzio Tone Zone.

Here she is: my Gibson SG Classic. I tried it out in a guitar center one day when I was 16 and couldn't stop thinking about it. I saved for three years. I haven't looked back since. Named her Joan after an ex's grandmother, a sassy New Yorker who didn't take shit from nobody.

Sterling JP-100, I've had this for about 6 years and its my only functioning electric, but I love it because it suits me so well ergnomically. Gonna upgrade and get a strat or something similar soon hopefully, but I think I'll always keep this one in my collection

i_lovemetallica : not to pinch your nipples or anything, just mentioning cos I wondered and looked it up:

Human factors and ergonomics, also  known as comfort design, functional design, and systems, is the practice  of designing products, systems, or processes to take proper account of  the interaction between them and the people who use them.

That is, ergonomic is made that way, not generically the way something fits you.

I've had my current main guitar for almost 11 years now, honestly the only reason it is still my 'main' guitar is because I don't play enough any more to justify upgrading it.

Blayney That Ibanez is beautiful.

Thanks I like it a lot. It's not the most expensive or fancy Ibanez but I've had it since like 2005 and I'm so used to it now it's hard to play another guitar. The neckthru gives such good access to high frets and the neck is a lovely shape.
