This thread is going over at JS and i found it quite interesting, it reflects a lot about a player, even when you have owned a lot of guitars.
It was difficult for me after 20 years of making amplified noise, i've tried to remember everything but i've no doubt missed stuff. Apologies for my list, i am an impulse buyer at times! Laughing

What i have noticed from this list is i periodically re-try the Stratocaster, tend to go back to the SG (and variants) and have an Offset fetish.

1990 to Current

4 x Fender Jaguars (Vintage, CIJ, HH)
2 x Fender Jazzmasters (CIJ)
5 x Fender Jag-Stangs
4 x Fender Stratocasters (H1, MIJ, MIM)
2 x Fender Toronados (MIK, MIM)
2 x Fender Mustangs (Vintage, CIJ)
2 x Fender Music Masters (Vintage)
3 x Squier Teles
3 x Squier Strats
2 x Squier Stagemasters
3 x Squier Jagmasters (CIJ, CIC)
1 x Charvel Stratocaster (MIJ)
2 x Gordon Smith (Explorer, GS 1.5 DC)
1 x Fernandes Stratocaster
1 x Jackson Surfcaster
3 x BC Rich (Bich, Warlock, Kahler Warlock)
6 x Ibanez (RG550, RG270, EX series, GAX 75, a Vintage Artist and Roadstar II)
1 x Hofner
1 x Patrick Eggle
2 x Westone
2 x Westbury
1 x Lindert Loco T
4 x Tokai (LP, Flying V, RIC and Strat)
3 x Gibson (LP Junior, two SGs)
2 x Yamaha (SG200, MS Telecaster)
2 x Epiphone SGs
1 x Peavey Explorer
1 x Vester Superstrat
1 x Cort HBS Strat
1 x PRS SE
1 x Westfield 335
2 x Aria Pro II (Semi, Mosrite style Bass)
1 x Danelectro U2
1 x Epiphone Les Paul Custom

I've had a lot of cheapo's as well, some i cant remember; Samick, Westfield, Hohner, Columbus, Fenix, Wesley, Top Twenty, Satellite...

POST YOURS UP!

Sorry about the edits, i keep remembering more stuff.

Reposted from here, which was a great thread.

Edit: holy moses, this is a long, dull post. Go out and do something less boring instead.

Ooh, good thread Mr Lamp. I was inspired to play the guitar by the twin pillars of watching Hendrix at Monterey, and the episode of The Wonder Years where they form a band (and I swear it's a Jazzmaster his dad gives him). So, my first guitar was a red Marlin Sidewinder (terrible strat copy) that I bought off a friend for £60, plus the loan of his Little Giant amp, soon to be replaced by one of those terrible Gorilla amps from my mum's Kays catalogue. The Christmas gift of a Frontline distortion pedal sealed my future financial fate. Had real trouble getting the strat to sound how I wanted (JAMC and Pixies were favourites at the time) so I used to jack the pickups right up so they were almost touching the strings.

Promptly flogged all the above to my little brother (who didn't really want it) in order to buy a Fender Bullet, ProCo Rat, Pearl Fender twin copy and a WEM vertical 4x10 that a local metaller was selling in the paper for £120. I have detailed at length in the past how I sold this stuff for stupidly low money, but just to open an old wound, I sold the amp and the cab to my mate Jon to raise the £115 necessary to buy a Park G10R practice amp from Tandy. Ho-lee fuck.

Throughout all this, I wasn't happy with my singlecoil noises, and never gelled with the Bullet at all. Our frame of reference then (turn of the 90's), guitar-wise, was pretty fucked: no internet, so had to rely on guitar shop knowledge, pics and posters of bands we liked, and The Guitar Handbook; now, ace as this book is, at the time it was still the 70's edition floating around, so "current" thinking was humbuckers are best, guitars must be heavy as fuck, and preferably have a brass nut because sustain is all. I set my cap at a 335 - almost bought a beautiful white Epi Sheraton, but they refused me credit as I was a student. Instead, I traded the Bullet in for an Antoria 330 copy, with bolt on B+B maple neck, no centre block (so it fed back like fuck), and a useless switchomatic, BB King style. I loved it, and wished I still had it.

However, in the neverending search for a guitar that would make me good at the guitar, I traded this in for my Cimar tele custom (customs were rare as hen's teeth in the UK back then), a guitar I still have. Lost interest in playing much for a few years when I realised how much easier it was to mix records.

Then I played a Burns Marquee in 2000, and my guitar-love was re-ignited. Really good guitar, wish I knew then how to set up a trem, I might have kept it. Also discovered eBay around this time, and while sat messing around at work, bought a MIJ tele '69 thinline. It was lovely, and went some way to satisfying the Spiriualized wannabe within me. Still, my buy and sell cravings couldn't be quelled: I swapped the Marquee for a DeArmond 335-style bass, then sold the thinline and the bass together on eBAy.

With this money, I then made my most ill-considered gear purchase EVER. A brand new Epiphone Elitist 335 Dot. Totally fell for the guitar mag hype. Paid £750 a fortnight before Coda started selling them off for £399. Oof. Had always wanted a 335, but was disappointed by the reality of having one. Back to eBAy we go. Then followed, in pretty quick succession, the awful Tele Deluxe, a MIJ 52 tele (amazing!), then bought the Jaguar I'd always wanted! It was lovely, shortscale, ice blue metallic made in America, had to sell it just before Benecol Jr was born. Also secretly wished it was a Jazzmaster. Sorry.

Bought an Eastwood Johnny Ramone Hi Flyer that was so shit I sent it straight back, then a Tokai SG. This was an ace guitar, too; HEEEEUGE neck, which I learned from the tele I like a lot, and had always fancied an SG - they strike me as the guitar that the evil robot in The Black Hole would play:



realised I was never going to be satisfied 'til I bought a JAzzmaster, so sold my SG and bought a strat. A 60's classic player. Was fooled into thinking it had a big neck, which it didn't, and just hated the trem as compared to a Jag. Sold it quick, and bought a Danelectro Longhorn and an Edwards LP Jr (nice big neck again). Now Benecolette was on her way, and I realised if I didn't buy the Jazzmaster now, I'd never have any money ever, so sold everything and bought my Jazzmaster, and lived happily ever after.

So, to precis, lessons learned:
1) I like Jazzmasters.
2) I've made some bad gear decisions.
3) Fuck I've had a lot of guitars.
4) I used to think humbuckers were better.
5) This whole affair would have been cheaper for me to build a time machine, travel back to 1959, and buy a Jazzmaster.

ANOTHER EDIT: I'd like a Samick 335 with a resonator cone (just wasn't keen) and my current Dano baritone to be taken into consideration as well please.


... just to update further, I'd like an additional Danelectro (Prog's old one, now gone) and another Tokai SG to be taken into consideration, m'lud.

For being a Bass guy, I sure have a lot of six strings.

in order: BASS
"No Name" Ibanez GSR190 (red, sold on CL)
"Damon" Schecter custom 4 (natural, now yellowish)
"REX" Epiphone Goth Thunderbird (black)
"Lucy" Teisco bass (red, sold on CL)

in order: GUITAR
"Willow" Fender Telecoustic (red)
1964 Ric 365 (fireglo, no name cause I got it from my dad)
"The D" Epiphone G-400 (cherry red)
The ROK AXE (awesomely bad)
"Pritchard" Squier Jagmaster (red, vista series)

Man, I have (had) a lot of red guitars. It's not even my favorite color or anything.

Here's mine in a rough order:

-Encore 1/2 sized classical guitar thing.
-Tanglewood Strat
-Admira Classical guitar (full size neck but smaller body)
-Squier Tom Delonge Strat
-Admira Malaga Classical guitar
-Epiphone Les Paul Custom
-Electro Acoustic thing
-Admira Soledad Classical Guitar
-Westfield PBass
-Fender Mustang 69 RI
-Squier Bronco bass

I think that's about right. That's from being age 9 - 18 now.

The only guitar I have ever sold was the Admira Classical guitar with the smaller body size. I still have all the others.

No this is all CIJ Jazzmasters ever. They're tall and skinny like Strat single coils, not flat and wide like proper Jazzmaster single coils.

I had a Columbus LP briefly that had fakey humbuckers.
