first: some black strat-style samick cheapie... modded with a floating trem. traded a year or two later on a...

second: Ibanez RG770... pretty, but the ultra-thin neck drove me up the wall by not staying in tune. sold to make way for...

third: UV777BK.... simply brilliant. great sound, easy to set up, very (and probably most) consistent. a keeper.

<from here on I'm not too sure of the order they were bought/sold in>

fourth: Jem 90HAM... nice tone, very bright. the rough finish kept irritating my forearm though. played it less and less. sold eventually...

fifth: Jem 10th.... bought on Ebay for low USD$2k. This is most certainly the 'mecca' Jem - everyone should have one at some point. When I opened the case.. "WOW!!!!!". Still got it, not lettin it go.

sixth: Jem 77GMC (green swirl)... saw this one in a shop before I knew what they were (and what they were worth), passed on it. it reappeared in the classifieds a few months later for even less. snapped it up quick smart (the owner wanted to make sure it was going to someone that would appreciate it). nearly sold it, but came to my senses, still got it. no plans to sell.

seventh: Ibanez JX70 acoustic/electric... about time I had a half decent acoustic. pretty in green transparent.

eighth: JS1000BP.... big Joe fan. it was only a matter of time. nice tone, nice feel, very versatile tonally. surprised they're not more popular... still got it.

nothing's really taken my fancy since.... would love an FP, but they are ridiculously expensive in Australia now, simply not worth it for a guitar that's not really any different than it was when released.

Ah yes, I forgot to mention my future guitar(s) (you can never have just one lol):

Either a replacement for my Schecter Revenger-7 (RG-7421XL or Schecter Blackjack C-7) or some modifications on it.

A 12-string Acoustic-electric. (maybe a 6-string as well)

Another 6-string (Ibanez RG-321MH with new pickups maybe)

Next Guitar - An acoustic - maybe a Taylor, or possibly a Martin. Still test driving...

The Baby Taylor is in the living room.

Well at first borrowed a CAR Aria Pro II with Kahler
and then I rented a strat copy with the brand name "Elvis".

1. Fender Stratocaster MIJ (87´ or 88´ Model, Black with maple. My first purchase. Later I swapped the neck with a Rosewood MIM and upgraded with awesome Lundgrens pups.) s
2. Fender Stratocaster American Standard (91´ Model, Pewter with maple) s
3. Fender Stratocaster USA (78´ Model, Transparent Blonde with maple) s
4. Kramer HST300 Korea (80´s Model, Shocking Pink, Rosewood)
Later, Ibanez RG??? White Basswood body replaced the Shocking pink Kramer
plywood body. Thus a Ibanez with Kramer neck. s
5. Ibanez PGM30WH (02´White, Rosewood) s
6. Custom made, Jason Becker Tribute (05´, Alder, maple)
The most awesome guitar I have ever laid my hands on.
7. Home made "Golden V" body with Johnson maple neck, my first
attempt in learnig a bit about the process of building guitars.

s= sold

New Custom project and High End PGM...

First: Ibanez Roadstar II 440
Where: Hong Kong (Either Tom Lee or the one in the Ocean Terminal)
When: 85 or 86, can't remember
Why: I wanted the chicks, and they only dug guitar players. I played drums back then

Sold it to my guitar player bandmate

Next: Copy of a Fender P/J Bass
Where: Philippines
When: 87 I guess
Why: I was asked to switch to bass on our band so we could merge with another band that had tons of equipment
Sold it to a music studio after replacing the stock pups with Dimarzio P/J.

Current: Ibanez RG570EX
Where: Netherlands
When: 2002
Why: Trying to recapture my youth, missed playing
Now with Super D, JBJr, and PAFPRO and Cliplock

Next: Les Paul or Copy

First: Squier Hank Marvin sig strat, handmade in Japan by Fender Japan, one of 1500 made, modified.
Where: Local music shop.
When: Probably bought in about 97-98. I have read that the guitar was made in the mid eighties, but also that it was made in the early nineties. I started playing in 2001.
Why: My Dad bought it. He's a drummer, but played it and just knew it was too good not to buy.

Next: Ibanez Jem7vwh.
Where: Rich at Ibanez Rules.
When: I paid about a week ago.
Why: I wanted another guitar, but not another strat. I wanted 3 pickups, a locking trem and 24 frets. Played a few 77fps and a few 7vwhs, realised this was the one for me.

Next I gotta get a new amp. Then I'll worry about guitars.

First guitar: Epiphone acoustic. Still got it, never play it, let's move on.

Second guitar: Fender Mexican Strat. I still treasure this as my first electric guitar, and it plays like a dream.

Third guitar: Ibanez RGT3120. Beautiful guitar. My first 'pro' axe and my main stage guitar.

Fourth guitar: Ibanez RG7321. Kinda plain guitar, but I bought it just for those 7 string moments, and it fits the bill perfectly.

Next guitar: Ibanez JEM7VWH. Can't wait for this, it just sounds so amazing, especially when coupled with the amp I'm planning on getting soon - Mesa F50.

Epiphone acoustic, not sure of the model but the action was like 4 inches off the fretboard.
where - my father bought it for me at a local tag sale
when - 1989
why - so I'd stop playing with his guitars

G&L S-500
where - some store in Buffalo, NY
when - 1993
why - Needed a decent electric.

Gibson Les Paul Classic
Where - Danby, VT
When - 1995
Why - Loved the way Les Pauls sounded and wanted one.

Gibson LG-3 (late 40s or early 50s acoustic!)
Where - Some woman in Bennington, VT put an ad in the paper
When - 1998 or 1999
Why - my father got sick of me always playing his acoustics so he bought me one

Where - Guitar Center, Albany, NY
When - 11/03
Why - Do I really need to explain?

My next guitar will be either Evo or Van Halen's Frankenstrat :P
