My surrogate family... jus kidn' - heres most of my collecti

Ok i finally was able to take some half way decent photos of most of my guitars... at least the ones i can find:biggrin:

ESP- pre production Lynch #101 made in 1986
Washburn EC 36 (36 frets neck thru)
Ibanez American Master Neck thru purple quilt

Peavey Vandenberg- signed by all of Whitesnake (Adrian vandenberg, vivian campbell, tommy aldridge, rudy sarzo and david coverdale..too bad not stevie)



Ibanez American Master- neck thru... broke last year at band practice!!scott :bash:



1975 Rickenbacker 4001FL bass (fretless)



Just my little workstation: Mesa Boogie Mark IV, 4 track Tascam, Eventide 3000 DSX, my fav processer digitech Valve FX and a furman EQ and whatever else



Custom order Carvin DC 200 neck thru, upgraded with all EMG's and a Floyd



Washburn EC 29 neck thru (29 fret)



Ibanez GMC



Ibanez flame maple Sabre 7string



Ibanez 1998 UV777BK and a Better shot of my American Master

Nice family! *I used to own a Vandenberg also...I customized the crap out of it and then traded (like an idiot) when I joined a local band to play bass. *Mine was the "pepto-bismal" pink...Yuck. *

cool collection...seems like you're addicted to guitars that have more than 24 frets

Are you going to fix the american master ?

Thanks, yes, i am not interested in any electric guitar with less than 24 frets.. no matter how cool it is. As far as fixing the Master... I thought about for several months and decided against it. though it can be done. If i still have it a couple years from now, i may contact the guys who made it and see if they can make me a replacement neck. i forgot the company name but its on the Jemsite archives somewhere

I'm glad to see that someone else has an EC-36. I changed out the bringe saddles for a Floyd (the floyd base plate would not work). I need to grow finger nails to fret that 36th. fret !

36-FRETS!?! *That's friggin' insane!!! *Do you actually play any of the frets above 24? *Do you find they're a practical feature or just gimmick?

Good question. I find that it actually is practical, eccentric though it may be. It can be cleanly played, by me at least up to fret 31. the remaining frets are great to fumble some palm mute sweeps and stuff with a delay and they are esp good for some nice tapping with the pick. Really fun to play!!

Seriously nice gear man :thumbsup:

I see you've got a Carvin DC in there...

I was considering ordering either a Carvin DC 7-String or a Carvin DC-135 in HSH...

The 6-string Carvins come in a 25" scale, which I have no idea what it feels like...

So tell me man, how does the Carvin feel to you compared to some of your other 25 1/2 scale guitars? Does the quality and build compare (minus the pickups )

Just wondering, as I might customize my own strat Greenie Meanie Style (floyd trem, hand routed, cutaway extended, frets scalloped, hardware changed, etc.) or get a Carvin, and I don't know what I want.

My carvin is an excellent guitar. I am very impressed with the quality.. remember it is hand made in the USA. *as far as scale goes i like it almost as much as my ibanez stuff.
Carvins are not highly regarded by collectors and resell value as i know of, but i will tell you this, they are a seriously under rated builder as far as mid-high end guitars goes.

I would go with the Carvin approach. check out their site and/or call them up. i beleive you can have a great personlized spec guitar for hundreds less than a new Jem off the shelf.

I'm not knocking *Jems as they are one of my fav;s
but for a customized ax... go for it
