Guitar: 9/10. Toronados are cool and a bit rare. As are yellow guitars. I like yellow.

Cat: 14/10. So fluffy.

I've changed the bridge pickup on Thurston Moore with Lollar JM90 and put 250K pot to tame the brightness.

That sounds like a lovely collection - a shame it hasn't uploaded properly!

Curent electric fam:

2011 Squire Cyclone, all done up with Lollar low-wind Imperial bridge and Duncan SSL1 neck and all new pots, caps, and wiring. My first project guitar.

Parts Jag, 78 Musicmaster neck (with 68 tuners) and Rosser ash body finished with transtinted shellac and tru-oil, Fender AV65 pickups and standard Jag wiring.

1994 MIJ Jazzmaster that I bought new, stock except for tort pickguard and Peter Leonard Alnico2 JM pickups, which are amazing, and an AVRI trem (since the trem on the Jag ruined me for the MIJ trem that I'd been fine with all those years).

To be honest, one is a Perri's that I got from Guitar Center and the other two are the result of trolling Reverb and finding ones I like with free shipping for not terrible amounts of money.

Melody Maker was my first teenage guitar. Always good always bad; feels great but never quite as in tune as my JM, although I'm about to have another go at sorting it. JM I've had since late 79 or early 80 (!) . I actually love the Tele just as much as the JM, owned for maybe 25 years... but if I were to play live again would only use the JM as I'm a poseur. The Custom Shop Mark Kaye Strat is a lovely thing, versatile, got it around 2005, but a bit meh in comparison to the others. So I intend to cut this lot down to a trio, JM, MElody Maker (or maybe Jr?), and CS Tele.

Just the offsets:

That 'mystic seafoam' is incredible, although 'sonic grey' would've matched better with the olive. I couldn't justify both, sadly :D
