I'm down to:
1967 Gretsch 6120
1978 Gibson 335
Duesenberg Caribou
Radian Tele
Gibson SG

Plus a stray Jazzmaster that has made itself a temporary home here.

The first 4 cover just about any thing that I could possibly need, but the SG feels so different to all the others that it brings out completely different things when I play it. I had figured I'd sell it once I got the p-90s for the Duesenberg, but I'm not so sure now.
I could be interested in that SG, please PM me if you do decide to sell.

Taking a punt at who the chap is, I'm guessing that's my 335 its hanging out with here:

Whats his instagram I'd love to check it out. I think I've seen a few of his pictures in a guitar magazine.

Nice work Ben. I see at least one of my old guitars on his page... sunburst 345. And I believe one of the old SG standards was mine also.

IMG_8363.jpeg
On the left is a 2013 Gibson SG Special- this is one seriously bad-ass guitar. It's lightweight, resonant, feels awesome to play, and the P-90s have a really satisfying snarl to them.

On the right is a 1978 Gibson 335 Deluxe. This is a bit of a special beast- it came up for sale a few years ago, but I couldn't make it work, so one of my mates bought it instead, and I've coveted it ever since. It has Doyle-coil Tru Clone PAF pickups that sound awesome, and a decent sized neck, without being a baseball bat. I've got one of the little "Custom Made" plates that you often see on 335s that have had Bigsbys added, but I kinda like the look of the stud holes.

Both came from a chap with a rather serious Instagram situation, so his photos are way better than mine:
