Gear: Guitars

We’ve all heard the expression, “It’s not the guitar, but the guitar player…”… And I still strongly agree with it.  But any of you out there that plays guitar, if you’re like me (and I’m sure to some degree you are), then you love the chance to get your hands on just about any guitar that you haven’t had a chance to before…

Other people have much larger collections, and some smaller, but like the rest of the gear pages, I’m only providing it to try and create as thorough of a website as possible… Not to brag – who cares what gear you have, if the music isn’t that good and / or meaningful…

 – Electric Guitars –

Gretsch White Falcon

I would have to say that this one is my overall favorite electric guitar.  This one is NOT the custom model (for several $thousand more), but still a great guitar in my opinion.

Epiphone Casino

This one is the basic low-end model, but still can manage some decent and unique tones when combined with the right amplifier and effects (minimum effects).

American Fender Stratocaster

I've always been a "Strat" guy and still feel its the most versatile of all electric guitars.

Fender Telecaster Deluxe

The Fender Telecaster Deluxe is roughly the same quality as the American Strat although this one made in Mexico – Absolutely great sounding guitar with a meatier overall tone – Tele / Strat control with humbuckers – great combo…

 – Acoustic Guitars –

Gibson JV45TV

The Gibson JV45TV is currently my “Go-To” acoustic guitar.  Quieter than some, but really nice action and a compelete joy to play (also has the L.R. Baggs pick-up system installed now)…

Taylor Acoustic CE

The Taylor Acoustic CE Model is the first electric / acoustic that I’ve ever purchased.  The action is a bit high, but plays very well for the lower-end model price.  Can’t complain (came with a really nice case as well)…

Gretsch Honey Dipper Resonator

The Gretsch Honey Dipper Resonator guitar is an entry level resonator; however, the playability is quite surprising as well as its ability to stay in tune – Not quite a “National,” but very nice starter resonator…
