Any musicians here? It doesn't have to be just guitars. All stringed instruments are welcome.🎸🎻🙂

I can barely string a few notes together but I have a few guitars & pictures, mostly being played or as abstracts

Trust me when I say I could inundate this thread. The guitar in this artsy shot is a 3/4 scale Telecaster that I built using a mid-60's Jaguar (24" scale) neck. I have tons of photos, but only a few taken with m4/3.

Very nice! I also own a Tele...say, is that a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pup in the neck? How do you like it?

Not a Duncan. To be honest I can't recall the brand now. I installed the humbucker in the neck position and used a tone pot with a coil tap switch. The bridge is a duplicate of a mid 60's Alnico magnet, super hot. I wish I could remember the brand, they were known for disassembling old pickups that had particularly good sound and duplicating them down to the most minute detail. They did this at pretty reasonable prices. At one time I was heavily into guitar projects. I also did custom setups for people and played professionally.

Now I'm just old!

My '79 Strat. Looking a little worn these days.

That is a beaut! I am guessing that you blocked the trem....
Yep. Blocked the trem. It's been refretted, too. Still my # 1 after all these years.

Here it is, pre-gig:

What year is the Custom?
It's a Mexican 72 reissues, from about 2012.

Just to complete my electric line up, this is my third and last one. A Tokai from around 1985. I bought it as back-up to the Strat and have worn the frets so low I've now raised the action and use it for slide:

That's it for electrics.

Here are some taken of a guitar built for me by my old college roommate Milton. Recently acquired. He made it from Cuban mahogany from Manoa Valley, solid AAA Sitka spruce top, curly maple binding, curly koa rosette, mahogany neck, ebony fretboard and bridge, etc. Gorgeous and it sounds wonderful. He said I needed to get back into guitar playing and decided to help inspire me. He said that I inspired him to build guitars after showing him the guitars I built many years ago. He has since far surpassed anything I did. I posted this elsewhere in another thread, but forgot where. :)

Here's one shot from the Flickr album. I encourage you to look at other shots of this beautiful instrument. https://www.flickr.com/gp/92624968@N02/P29k6P

Not ashamed to plug his guitars. He does beautiful work. https://www.kulaguitars.com/

Beautiful! My Breedlove Dread has a AAA Sitca spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, Honduran mahogany neck and African ebony fretboard, headstock cover and bridge. The pickguard is ebony and was custom made to match the inlay on the fretboard.
