    My Strat is similar in overall appearance to yours though mine is a MIJ reissue of a 62 Photoflame and not a custom shop. It has a humbucker in the bridge pup position and a Floyd Rose II Locking tremelo that has an amazing ability to stay in tune. When I got it, it was the best playing guitar I ever had. Super low and light action but the stock electronics were junk. I upgraded all the pick-ups, switch and pots in it and now it is an absolute monster. I don’t have a good pic but will get some.

    These pics are my latest acquisition this summer. Rickenbacker 4003 special run from Wildwood Guitars in Colorado. Montezuma AmberGlo. Ric Toaster pick up in the neck, checkerboard binding, the new Ric bass bridge, “mono” output (no Ric-o-sound) and a single “dual-action” truss rod which is a change from the old Ric dual truss rod. When I saw pics of this bass I had to have it even though it was kinda crazy expensive.

        Very interesting even to a non guitar player. Not looking for anywhere near full disclosure but are most of these worth a few hundred or a little more or a lot more? PM if you are nervous posting this type of info.

          Well the price of my Ric can be found on the Internet so I don’t mind saying. It was listed at US$2999 but I paid US$2499 for it. That is quite a lot higher than a standard Rickenbacker 4003 but this is a very small special run so limited availability and Rickenbackers have been known to appreciate, particularly if they have a few special things on them like this one does. I saw it as both a guitar that made me drool uncontrollably and a reasonable investment.

            My most valuable guitars are my Martins. Both are from Martins flagship Authentic series. My D-28 Authentic is built exactly to the specs of a 1941 in their museum using CAT scans. Hot hide glue used authentic bracing, VTS (torrefied) top to get that aged wood sound. Value at the time of purchase August 2016, $10,949. Same deal for my D-18 Authentic 1939. Value is about $8,500 although I bought that one used for 5k. These are my compromises to owning the actual vintage pieces. An actual 1941 D-28 would cost about $60,000 US depending on condition. I did get a chance to compare my D-28 authentic to its vintage 1941 counterpart a couple years ago at Folkway music in Kitchener. Mark had one in there, I think he had listed at $75,000 Canadian. It was in excellent condition. Mine stood up very well to it but there is no beating all those decades of aging for that beautiful vintage tone.
            Both my Fender Custom shop guitars are in the 5 to 6k range. My custom crook T cost me $3,000 US back in 2010 when I had Bill Crook build it (Brad Paisley's builder) I actually made the trip down to West Virginia to pick it up rather than have it shipped. Was a fun trip and I got to meet the guy who builds Brad Paisleys Crooks. While there he showed me a build he was doing for Keith Urban and he showed me the body of a 52 tele that belonged to Brad Paisley. It was a casualty of the Nashville floods that happened that year. He had the body there to try and salvage the B bender from it.
            The Taylor GS Mini and Fender Squire aren't mine. The squire belongs to my daughter. She doesn't play and doesn't have room for it at her apartment. The Taylor belongs to my grand daughter. She is currently concentrating on piano so isn't playing it right now.
            I bought the custom shop 52 at the beginning of the last lockdown from Daves music in the US, as a gift to keep me occupied in the lockdown.
            The Brad paisley silver sparkle, my wife bought me on my 60th birthday last July. My original plan was to visit the Martin guitar factory in Pennsylvania but the pandemic killed that so the tele was a consolation. Its value. $1800 CA

              If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

                    In this case playing with them can also be endlessly entertaining too.

                      My eyes went straight to your Martins when I first saw the pic. Not that I knew what they were until you identified them.

                      I am just more attracted to acoustics I guess.

                      Didn't realise I had such good taste. (cough.)

                      Thanks for posting.

                          Nice collection - this is an SG body I built in September from a solo guitars kit. I opted to stain it with a coffee look with no finish.

                            Hey, I like it! I had a 74 Gibson SG Custom for a while but I sold it a few years back.
