Thanks to all for the posts... really appreciate folks sharing. I've got to say - I love my family, but seeing next to most of yours, well - we're a scrappy lot.

Here are my shout outs to the different posts:
  • T-Sal: Nice guitars... nicest display case of all (is it humidified?)
  • Boyd and eMinor7: The triplet brothers (J50s and Hbirds, that's got to feel like winning the lottery!)
  • Rev Roy: I've got envy of your J45 burst - very nice
  • Buc M: Guitars are nice, even nicer - you got 2 thumbs up from my wife for interior decorating ; )
  • Zomby W: just ooooohhhhh... and your CF100e is being coveted ; )
  • Prairie Schooner: the music corner got top ranks... but are the dead animal skulls to ward off bad spirits
  • Alias P: Love the 'hanging' display... and of course, the guitars
  • Dave F: Is it less expensive to collect cases - must be easier to play?
  • Saul Good: It looks like that motorbike is in your living room with the guitars - makes perfect sense to me, but you've gotta have an understanding better half!
  • Murph: There's a les paul in that picture i'm sure... or where is it?
  • Pickypick: Thumbs up for the most patriotic display - makes me want to cook out and get ready for the 4th of July
  • Lars: For fear of insulting someone... I really like your kalamazoo, and you've got some nice green land there, looks beautiful

--------
and my #1 favorite: Mr Paul - for a family pic of guitars with an actual family member (son)

Again -thank you all for the posts - rgds billroy


I guess nothing I posted pleased you? I am so sorry. Perhaps these might be more acceptable.

Tom - Lol, I was worried I had gushed over your stuff enough where any more and you'd accuse me of stalking you. One of my wishes would be a trip out your way and a days worth of time exploring my way through your house... PS - looking at these collections - I could say that of any of you.
'18 Gibson J45, vintage
'86 Guild D25
'00 Fender Strat (American Standard)
'90 Fender Strat (Korea, bought in an open market in Korea... yeah it might be real)
'68 Gibson SG
'17 Several 3 String CBGs

Well, I've narrowed it down to these two photos. If I had my pick of just one guitar to taker home, I don't even know if it would be one of the Gibsons, or one of the Martins.

That's more than one, JC.

If I got two choices, it would be the AJ and one of the D-28 'bones. Between those two would be a tough call, but probably the AJ just because of rarity. Playing both might make me change my mind.

I don’t think I could chose. Just stand there shaking.


Thanks for the photos, people. Please, keep them coming.


(I did show the Better Half as a kind of self validating ‘look, I am fairly normal’ thing, but she nearly choked on her wine and said some of the collections reminded her of Oprah’s shoe closet! But, I said, guitars are for playing, not like wearing shoes. Got the silent look...) :mellow:

Actually that is pretty much where I would come down. Here are sort of the most iconic two -- 35 and 36. The D-28 is actually quite a bit more valuable -- but hey, what do they know.

We had the AJ out at a local high-end picking barn (I guess that is sort of an oxymoron) Saturday and it got play about five hours. These are generally knowledgeable and pro-grade pickers, and they are always suitable impressed. This is hillbilly country, and there are quite a few old Herringbones in this community and even an occasional D-45 -- but pretty much no other AJs. When I pass it to a hot young picker, it is amazing to see the effect.

In these situations it is always feast or famine. The old Herringbones are always spotted but the traditional bluegrass community is far less familiar with AJs visually

You should host a guitar camp. I'm sure there's a lot of us that would like to see your collection and possibly compare some of our stock.
I never get tired of seeing your guitars.

These are all wonderful pictures. But all I kept thinking was how in the world do you keep all these guitars humidified? Do you guys hire "gardeners" to water your guitars? I only have 2 and I get tired of filling up the Oasis in each once a week.

Well humidity is not such a big issue where we live, and we have humidity control on the HVAC for the whole house. We have a dehumidify in the guitar vault.
