Here are my two - #1 and backup.

Total beat and decently heavy Gibson 335 with repaired headstock. Defies logic as to what I like in a semihollow but it sounds like absolute heaven. My all-time favorite guitar.

I also lucked out on a Tokai through Ishibashi two years ago. I replaced the pickups to be the same as my Gibson, 57 Classics. Sounds very similar but the Gibson just rings like a bell.

I wouldn't say the Gibson sounds better, just different.
That Gretsch had a lovely woody acoustic tone that I really miss.


I have other guitars to Comfort me though. :)

Im going to use this one as my work desktop for a while.

Picked this up recently. Plays like a dream with the slim neck and MHS pups.

Just finished building up this Epi Dot mutt. Got a great deal on the guitar, so I went nuts with a mix of parts-drawer and new. Pickups are customs built by Buddha Pickups on Reverb. They're as close to Jazzmaster pickups as he could get 'em, with still being drop-ins for a humbucker route. A DREAM COME TRUE! They sound really great. Wired up like a Jazzmaster, with one meg pots, etc.. they sound very Jazzmaster-like, but a bit more open/air-y; and definitely more woody, almost jazz-box-like - no doubt, due to the body.

In my search for the right hollowbody, I've been through two Rickenbacker 330s, a Gibson 333; and an Epiphone Casino. All beautiful. All played nicely - they just lacked, when plugged in. Needless to say, I'm stoked on this!

Here's my 1967 ES-125TDC. I'd gotten it out to fool around on and the light was just right. I was a little put off by the garish cherry burst when I first got it, but now I love it. Perhaps someday I'll get a repro guard for for it and put some more vintage-appropriate tuners on it, but it works fine as-is and the pickups sound amazing.

More information on this one would be greatly appreciated.

And what is the brown stomp box on the left?

The stomp is a Sole-Mate spring reverb.

Yep, it's the 'Dog at Subway! From Fatdog's website:
According to Fatdog: "Some fat customer was having a fit in front of the store; he jumped (repeatedly) on top of his guitar body and walked away. What'd I do? I peeled off the masonite fragments and put on a beautiful bird'seye top with sound block, and topped it off with a long-scale Silvertone Danelectro neck."
The knobs are push-pull, with phase and series options. Both PUPs are on all the time. The neck is fairly fat, flat and wide.
