Let's get this thread started guys!!!
Here's my first entry.....a VERY special guitar out of my "Beatles" collection...they made 1,965 total John Lennon Epiphone Casinos....it was made in the original Sunburst, referred to as the "1965" model, and the way it looked after John stripped the paint off, known as the "Revolution" model, as it looked in the famous "Apple Rooftop Concert".....
Here's my "Revolution" Casino:

Guys, my wife told me she was mad at me for posting that pic, as she thought I might appear to be trying to show HER off instead of the guitar...I promised I'd put up a different pic of the "Revolution" casino, and I would never break my word to my lovely wife, so here it is:

Hey, girls rock out too :p

I don't have as awesome a collection, but I still love my guitars! I've gone through a lot of them, but I've always sold an old one to buy a new one so this is pretty much what I have now:

1. My Dano! This I bought really cheap a couple of years ago from craigslist, because I'd always wanted a Dan electro guitar....for the price they play really well and have this great clean sound. It just happened to be shiny!

2. Les Paul DC. I've had this guitar for a long time and kind of abused it. If it weren't so abused I'd try and sell it so I could buy a Telecaster. But it has history, so even if it were in perfect condition I'd feel bad to sell it...

3. Finally....my absolute favorite guitar that I played and tried a million acoustics before I bought, my Yamaha CPX South. I know it's just a Yamaha, but it sounds soo beautiful and the Yamaha name/made in Japan instead of USA put it in my price range. and it has dolphin inlays and is the color of the ocean (kinda)! it's name is oceao...

I have a Dean somewhere in the basement that I never play too. I should fix it up and sell it, but I've never had the time. I'm not big on collecting, I like the idea of having on electric and one acoustic that I just love to play.

I agree 100%!!
While I really focus on collecting USA made guitars, the reality is that some of the finest guitars on earth come from Japan! And of those guitars, Yamaha is NOT "just a Yamaha"! They make BEAUTIFUL instruments, as shown here!

By the way, I had a Pacifica myself years ago that I sold to a buddy...it was a white Strat type that he still has...it has yellowed to a nice creamy looking vintage color,and everytime he plays it I regret selling it!
Here's the worst part...I sold it to him...this was 20 years ago...for 100 bucks!
He paid me $20 down, and then "forgot" our payment arrangements when he ran into some hard times...
He was, (and still is), my friend, so I "forgot" them too....but I still see my old Pacifica from time to time, and I still regret selling it!
Don't knock your Yamaha's...they are great guitars!

I had to comment on these two REALLY hot guitars!
My youngest son collects Danelectros, (I'll get some of them pictured...he has about six of them now....all reissues, no vintage), and I LOVE them!
They play and sound like nothing else on earth...they have a VERY distinct personality! And the vintage vibe from the reissues is WAY cool, especially the sparkle ones like yours!
GROOVY!!!

And your Gibson DC is awesome too! I love the flame top on it...it rivals any PRS I have ever had! And I'll bet it SOUNDS and PLAYS better!

Oooo I would love to see that collection! It never ceases to amaze me how well my Danelectro plays, they totally have a unique sound.

And thanks for the compliments :) I travel with the Yamaha a lot, so people are always asking me questions about what kind of guitar it is when they see the case. When I say Yamaha, I usually get some line like "oh, not a martin?" or "x-vintage-whatever-name-guitar." Especially from the luggage handlers, when I've had to gate check! Haha, I guess that's all they know of guitars though. So yeah, your comments mean a lot to me and oceao :D

I'll definitely get some pics of my youngest guitar player's collection done tomorrow, (He's 10 years old, by the way, and playing really well......he's been taking lessons about a year but has been taking piano lessons for 2 years, so his ability to read and write music really helped learn guitar. I don't know how to read music, sadly, so he is teaching ME how to read the tabs to play some stuff on the uke!)
I should also take some pics of my older son's collection....he's 19, plays EXTREMELY well, (WAY,WAY better than I ever did or will), mainly due to 2 lessons a week for the past 5 years, (I never had a lesson in my life), and he has some guitars you guys would probably like...he's got a nice collection of Gibson electrics, which is what he prefers, and a couple BEAUTIFUL classical guitars, including a STUNNING Cordoba with tone to die for, so great guitars can be not only American like most of mine and his Gibsons, they can also be from anywhere from Spain, (his Cordoba), to Japan, like some of my absolute favorite guitars, my Gretsch reissue "Beatle" guitars, or my Gretsch White Falcon, pictured below:

My sons are lucky.when I was a kid and wanted my first guitar I shoveled snow all winter at age 11 at a nickle and dime a driveway until I saved the $20 I needed to buy my first guitar,seen all the way to the left below:

http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u59/CarlyCS/GuitarCollection1.jpg


Now, as you can see, I have added a few more to my collection, but none have ever sounded as sweet as that first $20 guitar!
That's a feeling my kids have never known, since I have always given them anything they have wanted as a result of MY childhood...sometimes I feel I may have actually done the WRONG thing by doing that......

I'll never forget that feeling of taking that Teisco out of it's cardboard box.....no guitar I ever got since was ever as exciting!

You're right...they ARE great kids and I am very proud of each of them! I really feel bad if I came off any other way!

I do have to tell you something...YOUR post made me feel REALLY good...hearing another "kid", (please pardon the expression, but I am probably old enough to be your father), saying how grateful he is to his own parents for everything they do for him.
I'll bet your Mom and Dad are just as proud of YOU as I am of MY kids!
You sound like the kind of guy who every parent I know hopes his child will grow up to be....I have the pleasure of knowing my two oldest boys did...(the two older ones are 19 and 21), and feel confident my youngest, (He's 10), is on the right path too.
But to hear such a nice comment coming from a young guy really warms my heart.....Parents hear a LOT about all the "spoiled, ungrateful brats" of today's youth, but YOUR post shows that is a horrible generalization, and totally unfair!

Kudos to YOUR parents for raising such an honorable young man!

I'm glad my post made you feel good! haha though I'm definitely not a perfect kid (I still feel like a kid, I'm 23 and my brother is 21, so close in age to your sons)! Your post makes me happy too though, a lot of times I feel bad that I'm so "spoiled," but then I realize that there are other perfectly normal kids that are just as cared for and I just think of myself as lucky.

All the same sentiments DO still apply though!
Your parents can be, (and I am sure they ARE!!!), VERY proud of the daughter they have raised, and you shouldn't feel guilty about being "spoiled", because obviously you AREN'T, in the sense of the word where you have been over-indulged to the point of being unable to conduct yourself with honor or that you take everything for granted, so you are NOT spoiled, at all!
It just shows that we as parents CAN give our kids everything they hope and dream of, within our powers to do so, and they still can and often do turn out just fine, like YOU, and my kids too!

Thanks so much for sharing with us!!

What a nice collection of guitars! Once again I am finding out that there are so many beautiful guitars out there that don't HAVE to be made in the USA like I believed for so many years! Your great selection proves it...they are totally cool! I'm sure each one fills a distinct tonal need as well, which makes it possible for you to be a truly versatile player....isn't that better than what a lot of my buddies do...the ones who collect ONLY Strats or Les Pauls, etc,etc? You're ready to play ANYTHING with YOUR collection!

thanks! i just wish i was good enough at the guitar (or uke, for that matter) to warrant such a selection. but im still learning (it never ends, right?) and its nice to be able to say to myself "what kind of music do i feel like playing today?"... but then when i make that decision, the next question is "ok so how do i play that again?" hahahaha.

as for made in USA... i still do believe in that to an extent. american strats... just better. gibson over epiphone... the difference is noticeable to me. taylor over yamaha... ok that wasnt fair hahaha. but to tell the truth, when i bought my yamaha, i was actually shopping for a taylor. and i was looking at the taylors in the $1500 price range. i played some and decided to take a break from them to let myself think. in the meantime, i picked up this $600 yamaha and was blown away. for a guitar with laminate back and sides, when i compared it to the taylors that i was considering, i actually "felt" (too hard to explain) the acoustic tone more in the yammy. so needless to say, i didnt buy my taylor that day.


btw... your white falcon is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Are the three guitars you pictured part of your collection? I'd love to know more about the acoustic you pictured with your Tele....what brand, model, etc? The woods look really beautiful....I'm really big into the woods and craftsmanship of guitars...to illustrate: there are certainly "utility instruments" like the Oscar Schmidt electric uke I just bought to make recording easier, but then are ukes like the GString 6 String Tenor I bought from one of you guys...all solid beautiful Koa crafted in a work of "functional art"!

Guitars are of course the same way!

I have a few guitars that hang on the wall in the studio room that can get a couple nicks and even dings, and that's ok, because they are considered "tools" in there, like the computers we use to do the pre/post production work.

Then there are the guitars that live their whole life in their cases, because I won't risk any such damage.

I often wonder if that's really the right thing to do, and that's why I am offering many of those for sale. Guitars really SHOULD be PLAYED...I just don't have the heart to risk hurting a "perfect" instrument, much like the guy I know who owns a restored '63 Split Window Coupe Corvette. He NEVER, EVER actually DRIVES it! When he goes to car shows, he trailers it in an enclosed container, pushes it out to the ground for the show, then pushes it back on the trailer at the end. Yes, you are reading this right...HE WON'T EVEN START THE ENGINE! Am I that kind of “musician”…the one who won't play his instruments? What kind of “musician” is THAT??

Guys.....your thoughts??

You know what, NewbieUkie? It'd be easy for me to sit back and say, "Dude. Guitars are meant to be played. You're doing them a disservice. Think about all the players out there who don't have beautiful guitars. There are people starving in Africa."

But the stark truth of the matter is, I can't say a darn thing about any of that. I've never owned an instrument even close in value to the beauties you possess. It would be flippant and borderline patronizing of me to tell you something like that.

Your guitars are your guitars, and you are free to do what you will with them. If I had a collection that rivaled yours, I would be just as careful.

But damn, I'd love to strum a couple of those babies just once. Just once.

NU, sure they're mine. The 000 you asked about is an all-mahogany Santa Cruz, a wonderful instrument. 12 fret, 15" lower bout, Waverly tuners, simple appointments (and that's the way I like it). Very pure tone. Not as many overtones as a Rosewood/Spruce combination and a quicker decay. A very "honest" sound. I've owned guitars that are too strident, or too complex. This one's just right.

Each of the guitars you pictured are simply stunning, (love the Tele Deluxe too, and I sold my Dobro last year and STILL regret losing my only resonator), but that Santa Cruz really "struck a chord" with me, if you'll pardon the corny pun. It's got the look....well....maybe it's better described as the VIBE, of a guitar I think I'd want to play all night, and that's just from seeing a pic! Now that I have heard a little about it, I have to out and try one for myself!

Seeso,
I haven't known you for very long, but it's obvious to me in the short time I have been here that you are what we call in my "neck of the woods", a "stand-up guy".
(Being a young guy, you might have to google BOTH of those phrases...I'm showing my age using them!)
What I mean to say is you're a very cool, sophisticated guy who even though you may be young are already showing a ton of CLASS, which I have always believed is something you are born with.....you can't "learn" it..a person either HAS class or they DON'T, and you DO.
Why do I say that?
Not only because of your many past posts that I have read, but specifically now, when you could have, like many other people on less friendly forums might have, immediatley taken the opportunity to flame me for not doing what YOU would do, or think like YOU would thinki, in a given situation.
You have already learned tolerance...a strength that I assure you is going to take you VERY far in life!
Now, I know you don't need a "life lesson lecture" from THIS old guy...this comment I am making is just to let you know I really respect your ability to see past the obvious, and to honor the rights of others to have and voice their own opinions. VERY, VERY cool!

As to strumming one of my guitars one day...hey...if you're ever in south jersey, I've got a son about your age, (round-a-bout anyway) who would love to jam with you, (I wouldn't be able to keep up...the authritus in my hands and my lack of any real talent has really slowed down my actual playing anymore, and my sons are getting the torch passed to them), and you can play any guitar in my collection, including the ones that have never left their cases...like these below:

that Santa Cruz really "struck a chord" with me, if you'll pardon the corny pun. It's got the look....well....maybe it's better described as the VIBE, of a guitar I think I'd want to play all night, and that's just from seeing a pic! Now that I have heard a little about it, I have to out and try one for myself!
A lot of people have the same reaction NU. When you see a guitar that's got "it" you just seem to want it for your very own. That's what got you into your collection, right?:D

High-end all-mahogany's don't come up too often so you might have to luck into it. I found this one, pre-owned, at Buffalo Brothers. They currently have this nearly identical Collings in inventory:

Also this beautiful Goodall:

I'm actually on the lookout for a 00 all-mahogany. Smaller, a little more intimate.

Years ago I owned a Guild D-25 (of course, it wasn't what we would call a "high-end" guitar) that was all mahogany, (I think the year was 1971, and the guitar was a '66....it's all a little fuzzy now!), and that "red guitar" as my buddies used to call it, was one of the warmest, most pleasing guitars to hear, (and play!), I ever owned!
I actually completely forgot about it until seeing yours and getting into this chat about it! Maybe I'll look for another!

Damn, I wanna play too, but Imageshack has been nothing but a pain lately and I can't get any fresh pictures up. I got a few cruddy shots of my much neglected '67 Country Gent that I'd like to add to the Gretsch love fest.
I'll have to try different host later...

that Setzer is mighty pretty. He lives out this way now and I saw him just a while ago when the wife and I were still bowling regularly on weekends. He was bowling with some friends at Memory Lanes one Sunday morning. Great guitar player. Lousy bowler. I think Obama could kick his ass...

You know, the first couple of years, I thought it was okay. It took a couple of years before it became a guitar that I REALLY liked. Over that time, I've owned several other nice guitars (Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Mcilroy, Bourgeois, Breedlove), but I kept this one mostly because I had it for such a long time. The cedar/koa is really gentle and complex, but it still has good bass response and even works pretty well when you want to use a pick. I haven't heard another Taylor that impressed me as much as this one. Unfortunately, mine has the Fishman undersaddle pickup, which isn't anything special. When I have to play plugged in (usually at church when I help direct the Youth Band), I use a 97 Taylor 510 with an Engelmann spruce top and a Baggs M1, which was my FIRST good guitar. It's funny--Taylors always seem like the brand that people know who don't really know much about guitars. But for some reason, I've found two of them that work really well for me. To satisfy my own ego, I'd rather be playing something like a Collings, but in the end, I just had to trust my ears.

No apologies for preferring a Taylor. Collings, SCGC, H&D - all great guitars - but Taylors are well-made, easy-playing, great sounding instruments. In the end, it's the player more than the guitar.

ok so here are some updates...

my 2007 epiphone les paul custom in silverburst. i changed out the stock burstbuckers for some gibson 496R and 500T humbuckers. wasnt totally a part for part swap and took some custom fabrication to get them to fit, but i got them in and i cant be happier. great gibson sound and looks at less than a third of the price. the pot knobs are missing because i put them on my strat.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v176/pEsCaDoR/ukuleleunderground/IMG_4545.jpg

2008 fender MIM stratocaster in arctic white and maple fretboard. needed a fairly inexpensive guitar that i can gig with that i wont be worried about dinging up a little bit. took the pickup from the middle position and moved it up to the neck. the current middle pickup (silver one) is from a stock MIM telecaster neck. and the bridge pickup is a seymour duncan SHR-1 stacked hot rail. still getting some hum in the single coils, but awesome clarity out of the SD. the housing on the neck pickup is painted black. the knobs came off of my les paul. and the switch knob is from a tele.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v176/pEsCaDoR/ukuleleunderground/IMG_4544.jpg

and last, but not least, my taylor 614CE. custom made for me in the color combo that i requested. the one in the pic that i posted earlier in this thread was returned once this one came in.

My sons are lucky.when I was a kid and wanted my first guitar I shoveled snow all winter at age 11 at a nickle and dime a driveway until I saved the $20 I needed to buy my first guitar,seen all the way to the left below:

http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u59/CarlyCS/GuitarCollection1.jpg


Now, as you can see, I have added a few more to my collection, but none have ever sounded as sweet as that first $20 guitar!
That's a feeling my kids have never known, since I have always given them anything they have wanted as a result of MY childhood...sometimes I feel I may have actually done the WRONG thing by doing that......

I'll never forget that feeling of taking that Teisco out of it's cardboard box.....no guitar I ever got since was ever as exciting!

jon,
I was on an amp kick for a few years, I'd have things flown in, then out later that day sometimes. I helped with some design input on a few boutique makers as well. I averaged about 3 different amps a week for a strong 6 months at one time!
Think it is down to: a/b'ing a Soldano head into vintage Marshall (65 rolas) and a custom one-off Dumble-like head into a Hermida 2-12 ported with a 65 Scumback and ToneTubby Hempcone. Ultimate array of tones with those at the same time!
Then gotta keep the old 74 50w Marshall (Rosemary signed btw) and Tweed Deluxe custom shop.
But wait, sold some to fund some ukes:>)

I need to update my pics too, just came into the Washburn 125th ann parlor, Ramirez/Raimundo Classical, and...Martin HD 28v, man that guitar projects like a cannon!

Here's my baby. A cheap, off-brand, little basic dreadnought. I love her! She's amazing. I got her for about 70 dollars including shipping, from a small company that hand makes these guitars. An amazing guitar, action is really good, maybe a tad high on the first fret, but not bad at all, much better than a lot of guitars I have picked up, makes my friends entry level takamine feel like junk. The only real drawbacks are som minor finishing flaws, just some little sloppy detail things, but she performs great, I havent had one issue with the guitar. I'm looking to pick up another acoustic, if someone has any available for cheap give me a holler.

It was sold as an L-00 and other knowledgeable people have confirmed that. It's a 12 fret instrument and it is not a converted H-00 so it's probably an early 30s model. It is extremely light and has that great Gibson tone... :D

It's ALL about a red telecaster! Nice work!

The Callaham bridge parts are the thing to do. I didn't do the plate (yet), but I put the Callaham compensated brass saddles on mine. HUGE difference!
I put a Callaham block in my strat (best 50 bucks I ever spent). I don't know why anybody would ever NOT use Callaham bridge hardware.

Crawfish

Thanks.

I got both the body and neck off that auction site. The neck came from "the Stratosphere," they sell a lot of Fender parts. And the body came from another listing - who ironically turned out to be Don Mare. I pretty much just bolted em together, put strings on and set it up. About $400 total as you see it in that picture.

But the other junk I'm doing to it is about another $325 or so in parts. So call it $725 after I'm done with all of the changes...and I'll still have the original Fender pups, bridge and wired control plate in hand to reuse.

You can build one for lots cheaper - watch ebay for bodies and necks. I strongly suggest getting an undrilled neck if you can - that way you can drill them to match exactly. I read on the Tele forum that Keystone pickups are a great deal - they run like $25 a pop. I'd think if you watch your costs, you could maybe do one for $200-300, less if you have some parts on hand.

Thanks for the kind words.

I really like the Callaham bridges too. I have another Tele with his bridge and saddles and it's great. I have his bridges and blocks in both my Strats and the quality is so far beyond the stock Fender junk there's no comparison.

I'm going with the Glendale plate and saddles on this red one since I've heard so much about the 'twang' factor from the TDPRI forum. The plate is thin like a Fender one - the Callaham is thicker. Some players think that gives the Glendale more twang...we shall see.

BTW, I have the Callaham Tele knobs too - they are pricey but they are totally killer.

Just bought this Ibanez Acoustic-Electric at a Guitar Center about a hour an half away (its the closest one) and I'm extremely happy with her! The sales-men was a real nice guy and got me a huge discount on the price. The sound is amazing, the body size is smaller than a regular guitar and fits perfectly for my smaller frame, a hundred times more comfortable than my old Eppy that I traded in. Amplified she sounds amazing! She's been named Michelle ;)

Nice Ibanez. Their electronics really do sound good these days. I prefer using the XLR output since it is quieter. I record via the XLR output.

The Carvin is nice, too. I like those semi-hollowbody configurations. I like the Tele in that body style. I've never owned one, but I was tempted to buy one when I bought my solid-bodied Tele.

Carvin has to be one of the best made guitars out there. I never understood people who buy an entry level PRS/Gibson/Ibanez/etc when they could get a custom shop quality Carvin for the same price. I love the Brazilianburst color option, the only other guitar manufacturer I know of that has this same color is JET and their guitars are in the $5000 and up range.

ric, for a fraction of the cost, do a search for "saga kit" they have styles of les pauls, strats, teles, and prs available and they go for about $100 or more LESS than the grizzly kits. there are even videos on youtube of people who have built their own kits and some are extremely impressive.

its basically like legos for men! (or women)

I bought the parts on the relic strat and put it together. Slapped a set of Seymour Duncan Antiquities pickups.

I normally buy cheap on the celebrity guitars. I couldn't see spending so much $$$ on a guitar that says Hendrix, SRV, EVH or Rory.

Fender makes some MIM relic strats now ($800). And Nash is a really good alternative if you don't wanna spend $$$ for a Fender relic.

PS. Also probably the reason why I would never buy a James Hill Uke.

Wow, I had no idea Ovation made Ukuleles! The Hohner is a beauty though.

Well... I don't have as nice a background as the first guitar but here are a couple of my guitars...
A 1982 Gibson Les Paul Custom, a G&L ASAT Special...the guitars are pretty sexy but you know the background not so much..

Amazing guitars in this thread.

Here are a few of mine:

This is a '78 Fender Mustang that I got about 12 years ago. Previous owner had painted it "sonicish blue" with latex house paint and retrofitted 60's style knobs and pickguard. I recently swapped the original one piece maple neck for a '74 rosewood neck.

Finally got my dream guitar after drooling over it for a decade. My Gretsch Anniversary (G6118T-LTV)

And, the Anniversary again, next to my "50s Classic" CIJ Fender Telecaster:

http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x23/jonathanbennett120/B.jpg

A close up on the Fender Telecaster (I got the ash tray cover used with the big dent. I figured I'd replace it with an undented one, but my wife snuck it to an engraving shop as a surprise gift. Got the Velvet Underground lyric-"hello, you're my very special one" engraved on the underside so now I'll never part with it):
http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x23/jonathanbennett120/DSC02889.jpg

And a broken down old Gretsch Synchromatic. Sounds like junk, but I kind of like having a junky old acoustic around. (Someone swapped on a Hagstrom tailpiece before I got it.)

This is one of my Orville by Gibsons. I have 5 altogether, all Les Pauls. My favourite is my LP Junior but this is probably the prettiest. It's a 1991 Standard made in the Terada fatctory and probably beats any USA Gibson from the same period. It even has it's original case.

And this is my other woman. We've been together 28 years! I got this cheap because of the colour, which is Monaco Yellow. Times have changed though and the colour makes it a lot more valuable than it would have been if it had been a more standard colour.

Here is some new porn for you. This guitar was my deceases friends best guitar. His wife gave it to me for liquidating all of his 70 instruments and stuff. It was built in 1987 by an Ohio maker- Don Banzer who only produced 200 instruments be he died of lung cancer. Harry and I went there every other weekend to see the progress. It is one of 2 Harry had built. This is serial#100 and the other is 99. 99 is a matching classical that my son has. This guitar is probably one of the most responsive guitars I've ever played and can be soft or loud as you like. Really glad to have it. -Doug

This photo of the little parlors is sweet!, and I actually somewhat copied the P-09 in one of my parlor models, this being one I just finished - Click the photo for better view, if you want.;)

How did I miss this thread before?!?! If there's one thing I love doing, it's showing off my guitars... I'm tempted to put hundreds of photos, but I'll only post three:

http://lh5.ggpht.com/_t6vUs3CFbBU/SzkunZBWiOI/AAAAAAAAAC4/F0Lija-gR1w/s800/4.JPG

That's my pride and joy: Ibanez J-Custom, model RG8570M-TB. A pretty rare high-end Ibanez model, there's only five of them up here in Canada, not too many in the States either. It's listing price is pretty hefty, but I managed to get a hell of a deal on a used one in great condition. Here are the specs:
Flame Maple top
Maple fretboard
Mahogony back
5pcs. Maple/Bubinga Wizard Neck
Custom Jumbo (SBB216-195) Frets
Gotoh tuners
Ibanez edge-pro bridge

Dimarzio pickups:
Neck - Air Norton (H)
Middle - Blue Velvet (S)
Bridge - Tone Zone (H)

http://lh6.ggpht.com/_t6vUs3CFbBU/SzkunWgXBZI/AAAAAAAAAC8/H4txnGRxeoU/s800/6.JPG

Here's my Dean Palomino series hollowbody, a great jazz/blues guitar for its price

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_t6vUs3CFbBU/SzkunsQnAQI/AAAAAAAAADA/rVumP-md2-w/s800/8.JPG

This ones a little odd. It's a Quest neck-thru guitar, really rare, made by some little company in Quebec in the '80s. Don't really know too much about it, other than that it needs new pickups, a new bridge, and some wiring work :)
