    Re: sudo make me a sandwich

    @th3james: sweet avatar there, bro!

    EDIT: This was an off-topic bit I started in another thread. Since we were having fun and it got interesting I moved the guitar related threads and started this thread...that's why it seems a bit out of context at first. Now that we have our own thread, let's talk about guitars and stuff!

    To the OP, I've been checking out the site that came from, and its fantastic stuff, thanks for the link!
    I'm the OP, so I guess I can take the thread off topic briefly.

    It's an SG, specifically the one Eric Clapton played in the Cream era.

    I have a Telecaster as my main guitar, but I also have a Guild acoustic, a Washburn bass, and a Fender knockoff of the old Guild Starfire IV semihollowbody electric.

    I've played the Epi LP's, they're nice guitars. For the most part the biggest difference is the headstock. I played in a band for a while with a guy that had one and I was impressed with it.

    @ matthew, sorry to keep this post off topic, but I too play a telecaster as my main guitar. I have the 02-03 mexican one with the sunburst finish. I really want new pickups to replace my (rather wimpy) stock ones.

    Nice!

    Mine is blonde with a black pickguard engraved with my name. I replaced the neck pickup and put in a humbucker (with chrome cover, of course) and a 5 way strat style switch.

    Oh, and I'm pulling out our guitar conversation and starting a new thread. Get ready to post some pics! I'll start...sorry this first one's a little small, but it illustrates the description of my tele.

    Some of my others and one of my amps...it's an old 1940's National I bought off of eBay. It was broken and I took it apart, repaired/restored it, and it works great. Maybe later I'll post a shot of an amp I built from scratch. Click on the pic for a large version.

    Re: Hey! Guitar players, let's chat.

    Aww, you lucky tele owners! I desparatly want one as my second guitar (looking for a nice trebley sound to be the opposite of the les paul), but as a poor student, its out of the question atm (damn london house prices!). Any way, here's a pic of my LP in action!



    Its nothing special, but i still love it!

    y'know, I'm always amused at guitarists. They seek each other out to trade guitarpr0n.

    I hardly ever hear about pianists posting photos of their pianos/organs/keyboards/etc. (Although if anyone here actually does play a Steinway Model B or a Hammond B3 that'd be cool)

    I've got a Gibson SG Standard as my main guitar. Dean strat as a backup. Seagull and Ibanez acoustics, and 2 classical guitars. Also a banjo and a ukelele.
