    I'm a superb guitar player. Probably a cross between Jimi Hendrix and Slash. The trouble then is I always wake up. :(

    I have one of the TA-40 pro II’s and I really enjoy it... a great “sleeper” guitar!

    Mine spent + 20 years under a bed, a real sleeper :grinning:.
    A friend told me about that guitar. His father wanted to learn to play, bought the guitar new, and let it under a bed at least 20 years.. I bought it 200 euros, kind of NOS condition.

    Been playing bass for about 15 years.... have been in three bands doing rock covers.
    I've got 5 bass guitars, P bass was my first, Epiphone Thunderbird (i do love a good T bird lol), my fav, a Nikki Sixx Blackbird (see pic), and finally a Punisher and Axe, both used by Gene Simmons of Kiss.
    For gigs, i use a Marshall DBS 200 head with a 1x 15" and a 4x 10" cabs.
    Boss overdrive and chorus pedals.

    That's one of those tricksy jazz chords.


    Thought this would be better placed here than in the general funny thread.

    Bumping on jazz chord. Here is my 17" jazz box I reluctantly had to sell.
    From the french luthier Franck Cheval. That one was from 1991, made for my jazz teacher.
    That guitar played and sounded superb. I could sell it for a good price, but still miss it.

    Maybe when they graduate into their well paid jobs they'll replace it.

    Maybe not ;)

    Just caught up with this thread. I have around twenty odd guitars at the moment and two 5-string Banjo's plus my fiddle, six sets of bagpipes a couple of clarinets, flutes, Fifes and a melodion. Bit of a multi-instrumentalist although I have long since sold all my saxophones. Trumpets, Cornets, Trombones, Double Basses and Viola's. :)

    On the guitar front the current line up is:
    Schecter Hellraiser FR-S in Ultra Violet with carbon fibre binding
    Jackson SL2Q MAH Soloist in 'Northern lights' finish
    Gretsch 5420 in Gretsch Orange with TV Jones pickups
    Ibanez S series? Can't remember the exact model at the moment but it's quilted maple top in trans purple with Floyd Rose trem and thin sculped mahogany body
    Fender Strat '56 replica ala Buddy Holly
    Fender Strat in Candy Apple red
    Fernandes Monterey (I think) sustainer guitar
    Jackson 7 and 8 stringers (can't remember the models and bought them to experiment with as they were going cheap)
    Crazy little Chameleon colour green/red finish guitar by Cort which I fitted with some John Birch hand wound pick-ups ala Tony Iommi.
    Harley Benton guitar- Mahogany LP style body with Floyd Rose trem and coil taps.
    Handful of cheap guitars in Tele, Les Paul, Superstrat and SG styles

    For amps I am currently using a cheap valve head and cab from a company called Gear4Music branded as a 'Subzero' it's actually a Chinese copy of the Fender '59 model Bassman circuit. I have a '59 Bassman as well which is in storage because I rate it too highly, and it's too rare/valuable to use just for kicking about and the sound from the cheap copy is indistinguishable from the original. Also got a wee Vox modelling amp kicking about for playing with less volume as the Bassman copy starts at 'Loud' and goes up to 'are you deaf yet?'

    Over the years I have had so many guitars pass through my hands that I wish I hadn't had to sell but ups and downs in finances, musical tastes and circumstances dictated. Among the ones I regret selling most are:

    Gretsch Double Anniversary in two tone smoke green. Bought around 1990 and, after I sold it I discovered that it had previously belonged to the guitarist of The Bluebells and features in the video for their hit single 'Young at Heart'.

    Schecter 'Bomber Girl' - Tele style guitar with a graphic on the body in the style of a WWII Bomber's noseart it was a limited edition that you just can't find for sale now. I sold it because they had made an error in the artwork. It was meant to be WWII era artwork but had USAF inlaid at the 12th fret when it should have been USAAF (United States Army Air Force) during WWII.

    Fernandes 'The Function' - The original 'Sustainer' guitar, it was a solid ash body with a trans blue finish and clear pickguard. Think Levinson Blade but with an infinite sustain capability and Japanese quality finish.

    Ibanez 'Rocket Roll II' - This was a 'flying V' style guitar from Ibanez which ran alongside the 'Iceman'. It had a lovely bookmatched stripy maple top and played and sounded beautiful but was a swine to play sat down or standing up as it didn't balance well. I bought it from McCormicks Music in Glasgow around 1987 IIRC. I went to the shop planning to buy something like a Gibson LP or Fender Strat but found that the old Ibanez played better than any other guitar in the shop so walked out with it instead. Sold it, along with all my other guitars at the time, when I decided to quit guitar, supposedly for good, around 2005. Picked the old six string back up about the start of last year and my collection exploded back into life. I only play for myself these days though and not interested in performing any more. Band politics and ego's are just too much of a PITA.

    I struggle with the reverse problem. I need a project on the go to play, I derive scant pleasure from playing for it's own sake. Same with anything creative like painting, drawing. I did pick up some art materials to see if I could still do it during the last lockdown but once I established I was just rusty but could still do it, all the paints went in a drawer.
    I've found the current restrictions hard as I enjoy playing with other people immensely. I'll rehearse and hone skills for a loose jam with mates, let alone a gig. Leave me to my own devices and I'll just keep them in tune and noodle.
