They tried to give me advice, down at the record shop. I said "Sit down boys, this may come as a SHOCK. But alls I listen to, it's all freedom rock."

Haha thanks, guys. Those two are always mugging it up for the camera. It was definitely one of those accidentally perfect picture moments. Fergus (the pup) wanted to come outside while I was noodling around, and Charlie (my cat) was trying to hide from Fergus.

My 1968 Emerald Green Guild Starfire II, back in 1987. Last time it was on a stage. She stays home now!
Fully-hollow. Odd-size, irreplaceable pickups. Added the Guild Bigsby a couple years after I got it. (A lucky find for $35!) Just the greatest guitar ever.

Not sure how long the photographer is going to have these up on his website. From a gig the week before last with my usual Gibson L-5:

Maybe slightly, but these days I've got about 80 pounds on that skinny kid I was in the mid 80's! ;D

I feel like my new Les Paul counts as a semi, since at 6 lb 9 oz, it's actually lighter than my Mustang on the left (6 lb 10 oz).

But my other two definitely are, the VM Tele Thinline and Daisy Rock Retro-H. They are both wonderful 24.75" scale bolt-on neck guitars.

Isn't it? I traded an Eastwood guitar I had won for it back when Daddys Junky Music in Shrewsbury was still open. I haven't played another hollowbody that comes remotely close to this one.
