Well, you know I do have as many guitars as I do to compensate for having a very small penis :wink:.
As for the Love Rock/Reborn issue, here's my 2?.

1) The Reborn I kept (as well as all others I have seen to date) has a very plain top, but still a stunning cherry-burst finish. The 'best' Love Rock I have features a drop-dead honey burst over a book-matched flame top.
2) The Reborn I have weighs like a '52 Pontiac, while that aforementioned Love Rock weighs like a feather.
3) The Love Rock usually has microphonic pickups (six Love Rocks I have/had did anyway), while the Reborn did not. I have no idea why.
4) The same Love Rock also had nickle hardware with an aluminum tailpiece. The guitar is so light and resonant, that if the looks don't get me noticed (and they definately do), the tone definately will.

Depending on what music you play, you may have to change pickups anyway, so I say get the best 'looker'. To really freak other guitar players out (and I never get the waitress commenting on my 'gear', guitar or otherwise :wink:) I take the Reborn out with the Simms-Watts head and a HiWatt 4X12" cabinet for 'Rock' gigs. For Blues gigs it's either Stevie-Ray it to death and take the Silver Star or try something different and take the Les Paul Special. I wish I had my Tokai SG back; it had the tone without the weight.
End of ramble. Have a safe Xmas everyone.

Here's my stable....off memory because most of these are locked up.

1965 Fender Stratocaster in museum quality, all original - sunburst with mint green pick guard, orginal case and hang tags (my 401K plan!)

Fender Custom Shop 1965 Relic in sunburst - I love the 65 strats and I want to play one. My original is too mint to take out. It stays locked up. This relic is spot on the original in terms of fit, finish and tone. Amazing and well worth the money. My main axe.

1969 Gibson ES150D in cherry finish (335 style but ES175 thickness, master volume control on lower bout) with orignal case

1940's Gibson LG 1 parlor style acoustic

Taylor 25th anniversary dreadnought acoustic

Fender USA 1952 Tele reissue (late 90's)

Fender Jimmie Vaughan Strat (sunburst)


(2) Tokai Springy Sounds in mint condition (both are two color sunburst, one maple neck, one rosewood)

(2) Tokai Breezy Sound Teles (one sunburst transitional logo, one natural finish with spaghetti logo)

(1) Tokai Les Paul Reborn (LS60 in cherry finish)

(1) Tokai ES100J 335 copy (1981 in sunburst) probably my best sounding and most favorite guitar. It is mint and sounds awesome.

(1) Tokai LS75 Goldtop 56 LP with P90's (bought new in 2003)

(1) Tokai 67 / 68 Flying V (vintage white - nicely yellowed) Early 80's

(1) Tokai SG special (TV yellow with two black P90's)

(1) Tokai Siver Star (black with rosewood fingerboard, spaghetti logo)

(1) Tokai TJ55 acoustic

(1) Burny 61 SG (black with VH-1 p'ups)

(1) Orville 61 SG (cherry with Seth Lover p'ups)

(2) Greco ES 175's (one Super Real in blonde, the other I think is a Clear Sound in sunburst)

(1) Greco ES 335 (the infamous Limited edition)

(2) Fender Japan Strats (Craft Shop 65 reissue in sunburst, early 80's E series hardtail sunburst 60's model - my first real guitar)

(12) Univox's (Hi Flier Mosrite copies and basses, two hollow bodies, LP Junior, two Les Pauls, etc)

(1) Danelectro U-2 reissue

I'm sure I've forgotten a couple.......didn't realize I had so many til I wrote this. :oops:

Thats why Resurrection Shuffle was my "tune of the day"

Read every post, I was wondering if the lists had changed much.
