I actually achieved a multi-shot the other day, but was so elated that I never got round to taking pics of my guitars!!! I was spent.
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

ESP Eclipse or high end LTD
PRS Tremonti SE (rather have the real thing, but this will do)
Charvel Desolation LP shape with the SD Blackouts
Schecter Hellraiser Tempest
Epiphone Zakk Wylde custom

One day...
What is "the pirate"?
I bought a Pirates of the Caribbean themed Epiphone about ten years ago. It suited my personality, I'm a sucker for stuff like that, and it is done really well, but at the end of the day it's still an Epiphone LP Studio. I upgraded the pickups and selector switch, but it just doesn't float my boat anymore.

I was working a the RS when those were released. Hated them at the time, but looking back they are actually kinda cool (in a kitschy sort of way).

Unless any of you fine gentleman want to help me out with a vintage gibson or two.
Lovely shot. That a Jimmy Page LP?
The Les Paul belonged to my guitar teacher I used to look up to as a 12 year old, I dreamt of one day owning that guitar for the longest time, I'd ask him to sell it to me more times than I could count but it was his favourite guitar, and he had lots of great ones, he would offer to sell me other guitars in his collection, but it was always this Les Paul that would haunt me. The day I finally brought off him was a great day, it's just a 1992 Les Paul std nothing special but I've compared it to many R9 and I'm pretty convinced now that it is one of those guitars I just don't need to upgrade, I love it so much, had it 20 years now and it has the best neck of any guitar over an inch thick at the bottom .860 thick at the 1st fret but because it's super thin at the nut it feels much thinner than it actually is. The pickups are Stephen design PAF repros.

Great collection! Is that an ex-Danny (I think?) O series Lowden?
It is a Lowden O25 but it isn't Danny's old one, this guitar has been with me since around 2007 I think, an Aucklander purchased it while living in England and I got it off him, it was like brand new when I got it because he didn't really play guitar other than having an intention to play, the guitar is pretty well used now though, sounds great, especially with John Pearse strings.

I definitely have a kitschy streak, but it's not going too help me with resale. :( Never really expected I'd want to sell it later on.

Have you thought about doing a basic respray of the top? Pretty simple thing to do yourself with a lot of work involved

I'm all thumbs with anything practical, plus I'd feel weird doing it to something that's still in pretty immaculate condition. Might just float it and see who else has a novelty streak...

Maybe put a wrap on the top? Its something that's easily reversible. :)
