You made the guitar on the right too?

Yep-I actually built all of 'em.

That one on the right was kind of my re-interpretation of the Steve Stevens Washburn model if it had been made by Charvel in 1979.

The neck is birdseye maple, with a back-tilted headstock, green pearl inlays, and brass frets. I finished it in Tru-oil, like a MusicMan.

The body is contoured in the back to get rid of the clunky neck joint. It's made out of spalted Alder. I meant to sunburst it, but when I pre-assembled it to see how everything fit together I liked it so much that I just decided to buff out the sanding sealer and wire it up.

The pickup is an ancient Dimarzio from a parts drawer, model unknown.

The bridge is from an old Boogie Bodies guitar. I found out it was made by Kahler for Dimarzio. Fender used them for "The Strat"model in 1980. Solid brass. I bought it as a spare part for $10.It didn't come with the block or trem arm, so I just screwed it to the body as a hardtail and run the strings through the body.

It's my most comfortable guitar. It's a total one trick pony, but it kicks that one trick's ass for about $2000 less than the Charvel 25th anniversary model.

Thanks for checkin' it out!

Awesome!
Having a talent for also building guitars is very useful, if you ask me. I'm envious.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Here they are, all my guitar stuff. I decided to send my first post here since I'm a gearhead all the way. In the first picture there's my DIY pedalboard. I'm sure everyone can identify those pedals. Those Ibanezes are both from early 80's, by the way. Then there's my amp, a Laney VH100R with an Orange PPC212 cab loaded with V30 speakers. There's only two EL34's in the power amp section 'cause 50w is more than enough if you're playing home. And then there's my guitars (that I won't be able to play for a couple of months since I'm recovering from a hand tendon repair surgery), a Fernandes bass from the early nineties with a crappy refin, the newer PGM301 and an ESP M-II. That's about it.

ps. you can get some serious pop in your bass sound if you're playing through a guitar amp to a guitar cabinet. :D

I agree. Too bad the painter wasn't as good as I expected, the paint looks cool only from a few meters away. :D Here's some more photos, the bass was in terrible condition when I got it: https://www.dropbox.com/gallery/1891370 ... 0?h=6c57b5

E: Actually I wanted to have it painted Road Flare Red, but the neon paint was WAY too expensive.

My guitar collection now includes a Road Flare Red RG550 20th Anniversary Model temporarily. I'm being a delivery boy, because I agreed to take the guitar with me to the new owner next Wednesday as I travel to the capital of Finland. As a payment, I get to shred on this beauty for three days.

I'm in love. This thing looks and plays fantastic. Though it has 11 gauge strings with a wound G and it's tuned down in Drop-D (way too thick strings for that tuning, the G string doesn't ring very well) I still love to play it! I had to learn Trapped In Toyland and a couple of RATT riffs because I don't know too many Drop-D riffs or songs. Ok ok, Trapped In Toyland ought to be played in D Standard, but it can be played in Drop-D. And here's a pic which includes today's weapons:

I always had a thing for that Flare Red guitars!

For more Drop D songs, check the Opeth and Black Label Society catalog. Alice in Chains used Drop D tuning, but with the whole guitar a half step down.

Blackwater Part by Opeth is a good one.
