Wow that's a beauty Dev!

This Jaguar 63' was badly refinished in white when i bought it (looked awesome in white too but..). You could see the Candy in the cracks so i had to see what was under. It was expensive :headpop: but worth it since i did not pay much for it. The guy who did it had it for 8 months or so :coffee: Its the most inspirational guitar ive ever had. Easy on my chubby hands and sounds wonderful. I was probably not born when this was scratched up thou so donno were those came from.

^ Stunning Jag!

Dev's LP Junior is just :drool2: in every way. I have to get an old Junior at some point.

Mine was an Ibanez AX120, and I hate it to this day (still sitting around in a corner waiting for me to smash it.)
As Cody said, Gordon Smith GS2. Bought it very cheaply as a live backup guitar but it immediately became my number 1. Was beat to shit when I got it, I broke & reset the neck once but the second time it was unrepairable. :doh:
It's like an orange on a toothpick

May as well join in the fun!
Here's my number one squeeze.
She's a real gigging trooper and a little more worn-in these days (in a good way).
A pretty little work horse :badlove:
