Oh man. I love that cheesy little plate behind the bridge. Icemans (Icemen?) look wrong without it.
Looking forward to seeing it completed, and maybe it'll be an opportunity to snap a family picture with all'em cool gueetars of yours?
So here is where I am at. I really need to clean up the guitar room. It looks like there was a tornado in Guitar Center up there.......

I'm bookmarking this page, so that in case anyone ever tells me that 7 guitars and a bass is too many. I have at least 5 more electrics plus a bass VI that I need to get. And what a modest collection that will be! :ph34r:

It is a slippery slope for sure. I remember a ways back thinking, "Crap I might have thirty guitars... That is insane!"

I feel like my approach is the best number for me is jist one more....

Future obituary: HNB found dead under piles of guitars. Earthquake in the area destabilized a stack of guitar cases and ended in tragedy.

O.....K.....
When you said there were to many to fit in a single picture, I assumed it was a hyperbole caused by guitar shaming (yeah, that's being studied at the moment :P ) by family member, but damn, you meant it :)
What's the project-to-store-bought ratio here? I see some cool stuff in there!

I tend to panic and give away or lend most of my guitars to friends every time my dedicated guitar space (which I just measured at 27 1/2" long) between the wall and my test amp gets full, but then I live in a 640 sqft flat with my wife and cat :) I'll do a family picture if I ever have'm all in here again.

I figure most of mine are probably custom made or partscasters nowadays. I have a few MJT builds and such. Several custom Jagstangs are upstairs along with some Univox and Airline style stuff. I like to mod so very few of anything I have is stock.
