Your #1 guitar: post a pic!

We all have one. That guitar that feels like home when you pick it up. You know where every dint and scratch came from.

I bought this thing when I was 17, at a clearance sale at a local music store. No one wanted the poor thing, with it's ruined nitro on the headstock (foam rubber guitar hangers!), crooked tuner, crooked bridge (it originally had a compensated tailpiece: they're not meant to be mounted at such an angle!) the pickup that almost touched the strings and the broken jack plate. But I loved it right away.

You can't tell from the pic but there are scars all over it (the nitro is so thick you can't get to the wood, and the serial number is almost illegible). Almost all the hardware and electronics have been changed, but it never lost its basic sweet woody sound. For some reason each note seems to have it's own "bloom" to it, and I've never played another guitar quite like it.

So let's see your wives! :marx:

Wish I hadn't smashed it to pieces.

J. Goad, what is that there? It looks a lot to me like my first guitar, but I bet mine is based on whatever yours is there.

Mine was an Ibanez AX120, and I hate it to this day (still sitting around in a corner waiting for me to smash it.)

My Les Paul is the guitar I waited 20 odd years for. It just feels right.

I've been putting off re-fretting it for the last 7 years as I don't want to change it. It was beat to hell when I got it with non orig pickups etc so it's not that I'm precious about it that way. I will have to soon though :errr:
