Default Things are getting rather silly around here... (too many guitars!)

So, uh... anybody need a guitar?





I hasten to add that these are NOT all mine. These are all the guitars (minus one) that are currently in my house; including my Dad's and the Artistic Director's (at my college theatre) 'Traveler' guitars. They're small guitars, no novelty, just very good instruments that happen to be smaller than average. Although the neck and fretboard is the standard scale length.

I just thought this would make a funny picture.

You better watch out!! Guitars are like the plague!! Next thing you know there will be no more room for your drums ;).

I've never seen a guitar with the tuning keys made into the body like that...very interesting..Looks like a very nice collection!!

Funnily enough, it is turning into that situation, where there is little room for my drums in my room, in fact right now they're in my garage being stored because there's too many gigs for me recently for me to bother setting it up between them.

The Traveler Guitars aren't mine, I hasten to add. They're really remarkable instruments. Not for me playing-wise (neck's too skinny, especially on the electric) but they're definitely quality instruments.

The ones with the headstock inside the body are cool. I can see how that would save space. I assume you put the strings in upside-down?

Yeah, upside-down, I had to re-string one of those at college today and it was an horrendous task. Really wasn't much fun, but it was worth it. Really lovely guitar; the electronics onboard are good; and I'm impressed with the pickups on all of them, particularly the stacked humbucker on the black electric. They really are minute. They take a bit of getting used to though, it's odd not having a body to really drive against; I tend to play pretty hard.

Points for grammar at least.

I play a lot more guitar than drums, purely out of convenience. I can't carry a drum kit to college easily, but I can manage a guitar! That said, I am still much better at the drums...

Funnily enough, not yet. My uncle gave me those clubs and a book on learning to juggle, so when I find the time I will be learning. They're nice clubs actually and I wish I'd found the time to learn so far.

Jenga indeed. I was good at that game...

Nice! It's beginning to look like my music room! I love guitars. Especially going to the pawn shop and buying some dirt cheap gem. I've pulled one of my old pawn shop guitars out recently to fix up. It has a dirty pot and I think a ground problem. It also needs the top part of the Floyd Rose rip.

I respectfully disagree about the travelers. they don't have any lowend and they sound paper thin. I like my guitars to have a little meat on thier bones, lets the sound breathe

A picture from our living room...

None of those are mine though. I play them occasionally but only know about 5 or 6 chords... I am much more eager to get better at drumming then to get better at guitar playing. I am also more eager to learn bass than to learn guitar...
