Very cool, Mike. I'm a "sort-of" guitar player. Much more a guitar collector! LOL Mostly Gibsons, and a couple of Fenders. The wife has been very understanding as I've managed to aquire around 20 guitars! (It's a sickness, just like cars )

ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT Doug!!!

Believe it or not, I was gonna guess there was an Explorer in there. Sammy Hagar still plays one to this day.

And the LP Gold Top.............that would be Tom Sholzs', from Boston, guitar of chose.

B E A UTIFUL Doug. I'm impressed.

BTW.......tell wifey she's very !!!!!

Regards Doug!!

Mike

Thanks for the compliments, MIke.

Yup, she's a keeper!

Interestingly enough, I had an Uncle that worked for Gibson, in Kalamazoo, before they moved everything to Nashville.

I always assocoate certain guitars with certain artists, too.

White Firebird - Johnny Winter.

Sunburst Les Paul - Jimmy Page, Gary Moore, Gary Richrath & tons more ....

I have not sold very many over the years, but I did have a Flying V and an ES335 at one point. I wouldn't mind owning a white Thunderbird Bass, to match the Firebird. And, as untraditional as it is, I would like a Rainsong acoustic. They are 100% Carbon Fiber, and play & sound amazing.

Well Doug, I lucked out and guessed most of them. Even the ES335. Most people associate that one with the likes of BB King, but the Nudge played one for years. Gary Richrath...........man.......loved his style, but did he ever fall off the face of the earth. He was basically thrown out of the band, and his replacement, Dave Amato, is every bit as good, if not better IMHO. I didn't hear of him passing, so I assume he just went into hiding.

Another fav of mine on the guitar is Vito Bratto, from White Lion. A truly Eddie VH competitor again IMHO.

My ES335 guy was Alvin Lee from Ten Years After. "I'm Goin' Home " from Woodstock is a classic. Plus Larry Carlton, the jazz great, was a ES335 player.

Gary Richrath: www.garyrichrath.com Some solo stuff, plus all his REO work, as well.

Oh, and you can't forget Slash as a Sunburst Les Paul, guy as well as Ace Frehley! Or Billy Gibbons and his "Pearly Gates" '59 Les Paul.

I thought I would have a little fun with this thread, and post up some more Les Paul players ........ Can you name them all?
