Default Musicians... lets see your gear!

As a spin-off of the member pics thread, lets start an "instrument/s photos" thread. Here are my guitars...



Pictured, from front row to back, are my Framus 12-string, Rogue Beatle knock-off bass, Epiphone Elitist Casino, Epiphone mandolin, Epiphone EL-00, 1990 Gibson SG, and my cheap-o Yamaha classical.

Wow hofner those are very beautiful.

You will laugh when you see this since yours (and probably everyone else's) are all beautifully professional nd expensive and wonderful but I bought my very own first guitar a few weeks ago (I had one years ago that I shared with my brother so it doesn't really count). For those of you that don't know, I have a particular favourite colour and whenever I see something in that colour, I have to have it. My phone. My ipod. My camera (didn't even care about the specs, just wanted the colour)...the list goes on. So when I saw this, I couldn't say no:



My husband has a blue electric....can't think what breed it is right now! He is very flash on guitar and has taught me a lot already but I'm not quite up to the best of standards just yet.

Other gear I have that I don't have photos of that are at home with my family in NZ would be our pianola that I used to play as a kiddie and my flute that I played for a few years at school.
My main instrument has always been my voice though so look at any other pic of me to see that particular piece of equipment.

Lucy, your guitar matches your Marilyn dress!

I used to have a guitar from Sears, don't have it now.
I only learned "Blue Bayou" on it, then I started working
and dropped it. Later, I wished I hadn't.

A picture of me with my Tacoma C3 Chief. It's a nice acoustic with a pickup installed. My favorite is my Guild D3, which I don't have a picture of. I have another one of those, which isn't as nice, an Ovation 12 string bequeathed to me by a friend who passed away, and a Baby Taylor travel guitar that never stays in tune.

It's called the "my parents found it at a garage sale 15 years ago for $20 and now I've borrowed it forever" brand. It's a new label, but it's an up and comer.

There's my Ibanez (my first electric guitar lol), then a classical guitar my dad got in Brazil a long time ago, my Gibson SG (my baby), and behind that a Harmony acoustic that's pretty old, that my uncle used to play, and that's not my bass lol. If anyone remembers Justanothergirl, that's her bass, and I'm borrowing it for a song my band is doing. :)

That Rogue Beatle bass is pretty popular, it seems! If you put flat-wound strings on it, you get a true Beatle sound!

Nice line-up. LOVE the SG....

I don't have a pic of all my instruments together (I'll take it some day), so I'll post one of each.

First, my piano, bought in 1916 by my great-grandmother (well, it's officially my mother's, although nowadays I'm the only one who plays it):




This is my cello, which apparently is from early 20th century:




And now, the most interesting part, my guitars: a classical guitar made by a luthier in my town, which I've had for 17 years, a 2001 DeArmond T-400 which I got because I've always loved George's Gretsches, a Squier Strat of an undeterminate model (I has features from a couple of them) and a real Höfner reissue of the '62 bass.






I've also got a trumpet and a ukelele, but I haven't got any pic of them. I also have a French horn, but since it's borrowed, I won't count it.

And before anyone is misled, I'm not a millionaire. The cello was a gift from my late grandfather, and the DeArmond and the Höfner were presents from a somewhat eccentric uncle of mine who had no vice and didn't know in what to spend his money... Till he got married (now I think he only buys dresses and high-heeled shoes!)
