    Cool Guitars, what all do y'all play?

    I broke out a couple of guitars this past Sunday: took 'em apart, cleaned 'em up and tweaked their set-ups. The process got me thinking about the many similarities between "collecting" guitars vs. guns. Finding gems, getting them running right, practicing with them...all brings the same satisfaction and enjoyment. So. For you fellow pickers out there. What all do y'all play? And what makes it special to you?

    Here's my Stratofakester among a collection of small amps. I got the guitar about 25 years ago from a guy who needed money. It was a kit guitar that he built himself. The best thing about it was a great paint job and some decent hardware. It had some issues but I've corrected those over the years. It now plays and sounds great! I was setting it up thinking maybe I'd sell it for something more modern. Nope. She stays.

    I can strum a few chords on a guitar but I don't really play
    However, I do play the 5 string banjo bluegrass style. I have a Huber Lexington and a 1927 tube and plate arch top Gibson Mastertone.
    The Gibson was originally a 4 string so I had a 5 string neck made for it and put in a conversion flat head tone ring. When I'm not playing the Gibson it stays in the safe along with the guns.
    I used to play a lot but arthritis in my right thumb limits my time picking.
    My husband and I used to play in a bluegrass band. It was more for fun than anything else, we played local fairs, parties, senior center etc.
    Hubby plays guitar and fiddle.

    ^^^ now that's cool. Post some pics if you can. Mrs b4 used to play for church services and such but hasn't picked up a guitar in many years. I've encouraged her to start it up again but it's a longshot.

    We are on the road (5th wheel gypsies) until June, with a trip home for the holidays and doctor appointments. Therefore, I only have the Huber with me, so I'll try to post a picture of it……
    First I need to search the forum on how to post pictures.
