My Other

Post by GARAGERAT » Tue Jun 06, 2006 8:11 pm

Here are a few pics of my 1977 Greco SE-500 Strat. It's not perfect cosmetically but I love this thing. The king of clean!

Here's a few of my 70's Japanese made Crestwood ES-335 Custom. Anyone have any info on these? It's a bolt neck but it has a
steel braided wiring harness, real humbuckers and is fully bound, even the F holes. Sounds and plays great. Got it off a local guy
on ebay for $40.00. He just listed it as Old Guitar. I picked it up and saved the shipping.

Nice old Greco strat. Are you going to try to "remove" that left-over sticker image? Perhaps it could be rubbed out using polishing compound.

My two Burnys :

Image

The one on the left is a late 80's (or early 90's) RLG90 with Duncan pickups. I threw away the VH-1's (just kidding, they're in another guitar).

The one on the right is an early 80's Custom with "accurate" diamond shape inlay. Not sure the pickups are VH1's though. They don't sound as good to me.

Cheers,

They're both quite heavy, especially the Standard, but I wouldn't want my LP's any other way!

My latest acquisition :

'99 Epiphone Japan (Orville, really) ES 335. Just arrived today and I already love it!

Here's a pic of my new Burny Rock n' Roll Jr. It's very lightweight and a lot of fun to play. It's an early 80's model, possibly an RLG 70.

I was complaining to my find there wasn't enough new "guitar porn" pics on the web today, and she reminded me I am part of the problem.

Hoping to add some MIJ Tokais soon!

Here's my "Harem", taken at a gig, so not the best photo.
Recent Gib V
'79 Gib KM LP
1989 Fender US vintage reissue '57 model Strat
New Tokai MIK FB-53
(The Tokai truss rod cover had a bit of warp to it, and I was able to get a white one that says Gib on it. Had I been able to get a white Tokai cover, I'd happily display that instead.)

* the Strat was re-fretted recently, and I had the inlays replaced with abalone, including a "bull's eye" at frets 7 & 19, as well as the infinity symbol at fret 12.

Simply fabulous guitars everyone... I'm litterally drooling
O k, I tried to post one also but couldn't. Some day I'll figure out how it works.

Keep on Rockin On 8)
