Had a custom Warmoth but got stolen when I was moving out of town to the seaside. I still look on Craigslist and pawn shops hoping it turns up.

Yea man, thanks. That sunburst Epiphone was the first quality guitar I ever bought. I replaced the pickups many years ago.  Prior to owning that I played on some old Squier knockoff my brother had. He never played it so I flipped it upside down and restrung it. That thing’s still knocking around at my parents’ house. 

 

Bummer about that Warmoth, man. Fingers crossed for you.

Lefties too. I would think that adds to the rareness. 

Yea it’s tough to find unique, quality left-handed guitars. Most manufacturers release black or red. It’s annoying. With Gibsons you’ve got to drop three grand to get a beautiful top or really unique color, but the reality is the guitar plays no better than a thousand dollar studio model. That charvel is pretty new. They just released that model last year and I was dying to get one. Again, you can find custom shop models for three grand, but I don’t want to drop that kind of dough. The orange Jackson is very rare and plays great. Problem is the tremolo is worn and doesn’t hold tune well. Thinking of dropping in a new Floyd Rose.

top Left to Right: Yamaha (the wife's), Manuel Raimundo Classical, Kentucky Mandolin (made in Korea lol!)

Below: Moog Theremin & Epiphone El Capitan Bass -sounds lovely with old, dirty flatwounds

The Raimundo is my favorite.

Fender American Jazz Bass & Stambaugh Custom 8-string (not another one like it in the world)

Hanging on the wall is a Martin "Tres Cubano" - can't live in Miami without one... montunos

The keys: Top is a Dave Smith Mono-Evolver (Every two months I have to take it apart and clean the encoders.... what a bitch), Bottom is my Trusty Korg Triton Extreme 76. Australian Didjereedoo in the corner - yeah I play the didjereedoo,

Not Shown: Dobro Hound Dog (nickel plated duolian resonator... say that a few times) - a blast to play in open tuning. I think I uploaded a video sample...

And the dog. In the used to have (but put into my body), a 68 sg, a 72 les Paul, a 67 mustang (purple w/racing stripes) a Rick and a Farfisa organ. 

I love the dot, $300 off the wall and the Taylor is a better guitar than I'll ever be a player :shaky:

Wish I had pics at least of some of the beauties  I have bought and sadly sold over the years .. this is what’s left blue Spector will never get rid of , first real instrument I bought when I was like 15 and getting serious about music .. American j bass in old limited run sunset orange ash body maple  with the S1 series/parallel switch .. another one don’t think I could part with , them just two sitting on the couch Jobbys .. the uke bass has incredible sound plugged in .. deepest lows like a dam upright but intonation is alil dodgy ..

... and the Dobro. thick wall brass slide really makes it sing.

Years of classical guitar playing and then applying my finger chops to this thing tuned open G was an epiphany for me.
