My Fylde electric. Not many of these about: Roger Bucknell reckons fewer than 30 were made. This one has very early EMG pickups (before they were officially called EMG), the bridge one has two sets of coils, one humbucking and one single coil set.

nice. whats the kingsley amp?
[/quote]

I ordered the amp when I was working in the 'states. When I ordereed mine in 2005 Simon Jarret made each one personally and I had to wait about 10 months, although not sure if this has changed (he got some blindingly great reviews in the US guitar mags that year). It is the finest guitar amp I have ever played through - I also have a Badcat Cub II, Atomic Spacetone and Victoria LPT. Finest reverb and tremolo I have heard and mine has a voltage selector (as I knew I would be coming back to blighty) and it has a useful footswicheable boost for solo's. I also ordered the amp with a Tonetubby 50 watt alnico speaker and this is perfect for the amp - highly recommended but these amps are like hens teeth. You can read about them on his site and Simon is a very accomplished guitarist which you can hear/see watching some of the footage of him playing these amps:

OK, a few more:

Dynelectron Italian copy of a Danelectro guitarlin. Owned since I was 18, I chose it over an early 70s butterscotch Tele because it was cool, different and mentioned in a magazine. D'oh.

But it worked well for me - played the poor thing to death over the following 11 years until I bought my strat in '89.

[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v717/AncientMariner/Dynelectron-1.jpg[/IMG]

And this is the strat I replaced it with - still my number 1, it's a MIJ standard strat (s/n dates to '86) with custom wiring and a US standard pickup in the bridge. Despite the maple neck it has a fat, rounded almost jazz tone and amazing resonance. Could do with a refret sometime soonish.

Time to put a few of mine up.

First up is my '84 Gibson 335 dot. Bought around 5 years ago from Cheltenham Bluesman Michael Roach (who at the time was a good friend - we've since fallen out...). Quite possibly the best electric guitar I've ever owned.

More to follow once I free up some upload space.

Just scored this out of Cash Converters this morning- it's a Schecter Omen Extreme 7 string. Looks great from the front, although the back and sides are pretty scratched and chipped. Plays nice, although it needs some new strings and a setup.

I think I did OK on the deal too- swapped it for my old laptop, which they were going to give me £150 cash for. This still has a price sticker on the back reading £250, although it was on offer at £200. Don't ask, don't get...

I can manage about three chords, but seem to have a few stashed away:

An acoustic I fell in love with the looks of. Apparently it's nice to play too, according to the guitarist in my band (who has a limited edition PRS, a 1970s Strat, a Gibson Trini Lopez 335 and a Dan Armstrong Plexi, all of which he gigs with):





A resonator because you've got to have something to play slide on, haven't you?




(the stripes are from the conservatory roof!)

And a Japanese-made Strat my girlfriend gave me:





(It came with a white scratch plate, but I reckon it looks better with a black one.)

Epic, £150 is a pretty good price.

At the price it's hard to beat. Not perfect, few flaws in the finish on mine but plays alright. Synthetic bone nut is just a hard plastic jobbie . I would tart it up but I can't play so I'll not waste the money yet .

I'd be tempted but the neck and bridge pickups look fairly niche models (oddly slanted and mini firebird type humbucker) and therefore more expensive to swap out. Never been a fan of the epi pickups I've heard.

A big Dave Grohl fan then? Nice! I've had a blast on one of those Plexi's, one of the nicest necks I've ever had my hands on. Lovely guitars to play.

You're right, I think you've just converted me into a Strat fan. Never normally that fussed on the way they look, but that colour combo is lovely!

Here's No 1, my 3 in 1 "I only need one Strat" Strat. Has Squier bits, fujigen-gakki bits, fender bits, and bulldog pickups. Technically it's still my 1st guitar from when I was 13, but I think the Scratch plate is the only original bit left.

Thanks. It hasn't had a lot of use: I'm not a guitarist so I don't play it much, and my son is more interested in his Fenders. Also, it gives out an immense signal, and the only guitar amp in the house is a Burman 100W valve combo, so it's a bit loud.

Not sure what to do with it really - it probably needs to go to a good home, but I don't know how to go about finding one for it.

OK, final set.

First up, a cheapie and a rarity. Remember Big Country and Stuart Adamson? The natural Tele was his, loaned to me by the guy who also owns the Giffin on page 1. Based on a Schecter body, it's the most immense and wonderful sounding tele you could possibly imagine - the kind of tele that makes you able to understand how someone could own just 1 guitar and use it for everything. Simply astonishing. The other was a cheap AXL Tele I picked up that played so well I took it home, but eventually sold on to make space.


Woody Customs tele - the most embarassingly awful piece of guitar-shaped junk I've ever been unfortunate enough to own. Even the £25 melody acoustic I picked up a while back was substantially better made.

JJ goldtop special. Bought at Musiclive a few years back from the hand of Tony Muschamp (he delivered it a few days after the show). The only guitar I've never had to do setup work on - perfect intonation and action from the start.


Heritage H150CM classic Les Paul. Hand made in the Kalamazoo factory, it's as bright as a Tele and has been a source of discontent ever since I bought it (sight unseen from the US). It should be an absolute gem, and with vintage Gibson pickups and some drive it does sound good. But the neck is skinny, tone very bright and only half the guitar that Tokai I posted earlier is.
