    A slight diversion from the Germany pictures (of which there are still more to come). Thought I'd post these, nothing special photographically, but nice to look at all the same.

    1. Cheap & nasty - Yamaha APX4a

    2. Not even remotely cheap or nasty - Yamaha SA2200

    [​IMG]

    3. Damned expensive and very nice indeed - Paul Reed Smith 'Custom 22' Artist

    [​IMG]

    4. A little old, a little battered but absolutely priceless in my eyes - Yamaha MSG Standard

    [​IMG]

    More of this kind of stuff once I get round to taking it...


    The hostas look good too, if a little nibbled round the edges

    Seems like you keep these little treasures of yours "on the island" instead of "in the Magic Kingdom"? To my mind, that fence in the background looks very much like an English garden fence to me ...

    It is an English fence, such things would not last long in the heat out here. The Magic Kingdom Collection will follow shortly, by which time I will have identified a suitably exotic location in front of which to portray them - would a small palm tree do?

    I really like these photos as a collection. I think one thing that helps is that the stand that the guitars are sitting on is not a cheap plastic or metal one that holds the neck with the two prongs. That way the whole guitar can be seen without any interruptions. Very nice.

    Love where you chose to 'pose' these guitars, Chris. Makes for a lovely background to these beautiful looking guitars.

    (Ummm, exactly how many do you own??)

    OK, so now for the Magic Kingdom Collection...

    5. A Warmoth Telecaster - one I built (from Warmoth parts) myself


    [​IMG]

    6. A Warmoth Stratocaster - my first build (from Warmoth parts)

    [​IMG]

    7. A Paul Reed Smith 'Soapbar' SE - one of their Korean range, nice and light and ideal for those Green Day moments

    [​IMG]

    8. Fender 'Lonestar' Stratocaster - Got this one when the MSG was in two pieces in 2000

    [​IMG]

    9. Tokai 'Loverock' DCII - a big bruiser of a guitar, massively powerful sound, rips up palm trees and picks its teeth with them...

    [​IMG]

    10. Cort A5 Bass - Doesn't get out much, think my hands are a bit small for bass playing to be honest, but it looks good, so what the hell

    [​IMG]

    11. Yamaha LL-400 - one of their handmade range. Beautiful sound and by far the nicest acoustic I have

    [​IMG]

    ...and yes, it did get wet whilst I was taking this shot.
