1959 Stratocaster. The only "mods" were a replaced pot (I was able to repair the original and replace), the frets were worn, and the finish had been removed. All that and it was still real

WELL MINE WAS THE GINSON L-5S..............AND I OWNED THREE OF THEM 2 78'S AND 1 79.......................MY LAST ONE WAS THIS ONE BUT THE FIRST ONE I OWNED I PAID THE MOST FOR AS IT WAS BRAND NEW FR

for me it was a Hamer by a slim margin.  one of the greenies ..  a special standard.  custom order that I  acquired off the HFC..  one of the last (to my knowledge) off of the floor before they closed

It's right down the road, let's get it in your hands. I'm sure you've got something new I want to play. 🤘

still got that Vigier?

Sure do. Badass guitar summit, Decatur version. Lemme know when... I just got my second Covid shot so I'm less likely to sicken people.

I bet if you put a set of Gravelin’s in there it would sound as good as it feels...

Just to clarify, this is the G-scale "uncut" model (look at the headstock), but it also comes "trimmed" and is available with an F-scale and thicker profile in ebony.

I'm backpacking this weekend but should be free over the next few weeks.  Vax#2 is 4/20 for me.  Good on ya.

used to own a custom order morgan concert cutaway acoustic. flame mahogany neck, african walnut back and sides. It was a stunning guitar but lost my job and had to sell a few items to make the bills. It was a $7500 instrument but the used market on morgans it a bit soft compared to other high end acoustics. Sometimes life is a bitch.

Please be kind, we wouldn’t want Josh to get “wood” over it.

I don’t have pics at the moment, but after I graduated college and had no real money, I took a small loan from my boss when working at Heavenly Ham around 1995 to buy a near mint 10-string Koa BC Rich Bich From East Coast Music Mall (yes, from the troll himself, but this was a legit ‘77 or ‘78). One of THE MOST beautiful guitars I’ve ever owned. At the time, I paid around $1600 for it. I sold it about 11 or 12 years ago for, IIRC, $3500. The neck was simply too beefy for my tastes and it wasn’t a lot of fun to play. But, man, did it sound awesome.

Currently, the most valuable one I own is probably a near-mint ESP DV8 Dave Mustaine V (not LTD). I’m pondering selling it to pay off my most recent acquisition, but I’m having a very hard time pushing myself to part with it. 

I also have a 2004 Custom Shop BC Rich Mockingbird that I got on eBay for a STEAL several years ago. Not sure what it’s worth now, but I’m guessing close to the DV8.
