They look a bit Jerry-inspired, but they're not Jerry's so nobody was interested at the time.

Put the Guild B-series, Gibson S-1 and some early Kramers in the same bucket. Great guitars that had a stronger second-hand life.

Whoever owned that one really hated E strings.

I like the look of all of these, that Martin especially. Demerits for the volume knob in the strat position (big pet peeve), but the one you're getting has the knobs les paul style so no problem there.

Anyway: the Memphis Les Paul! This was technically my first guitar too, my little brother had one and I swiped it (how Van Halen of me, no?). I played that until I got my first Kramer (as Van Halen as you could get in 1985).

Same. I'm finding having a variety of them around really helps to up the practice time cause I play one for awhile, then I feel bad for neglecting the others, so they all get some time. I'm in love with both of the Charvels, so comfortable. And I've come back around to my strat and tele, really enjoy both of those as well. Having gotten used to the forearm contour on the Charvel tele, the lack of it on the Fender is really noticeable, and it's a problem, so I'm gonna get my fine woodworker brother over here and we're gonna cut some contours into that thing, fuck it.

Next thing I get is gonna be a body and neck from Warmoth, gonna put together a custom dealie. Gotta pay the taxman first though.

or had some kind of contest with the bass player? oh yeah? I can play with 4-strings... watch me!

then again I thought I heard The Presidents of The United States of America did that album without all strings...

Yeah, the Presidents were a 3 or 4 string guitar and 2 string bass.
