It owes me more than it’s worth so unless I find enough money for an R8 or similar it will probably stay for a while.

Hey, ignore the two on the left as they're home made but the others are a 14 R9 in Sunrise Teaburst which looks more like honey burst in person and the far right is a 92 Classic Plus which is my first Gibson and I got it from Ian Morris from the Dudes so its a bit of a special one for me.

I can't take the full credit for them, I had help with setting the necks and the frets as i wanted to give them a good crack at being playable. The far left is a copy of Slash's 87 3 piece top but it's a bit dark sounding so has ended up being more of a looker. The other one is a 59 copy with Throwbacks which does a reasonable Led Zep tone through my Dirty Shirley, i think its the lightest of the group and is the one i play the most.

It's on the larger size, I think it was around 0.915 at the 1st fret but still really comfortable to play

Many thanks and Kudos. That one second from left is what caught my eye, it looks... dried out and very resonant. See, tone is in the looks after all :-)

Clearly that instrument needs to be refinished and those pickups and electrics upgraded??!!
