My leather-covered Telecaster, formerly owned by Danny Gatton, complete with early Bardens and Danny's Zirconia side-markers:
Looks really nice, for sure! But how does she feel to play? Must be pretty strange with that leather body?
Wow, great Tele!!! and cool Veleno copy!
I build so I've got quite a number of unusual pieces.
Beautiful guitars!!! Wow!!!
Here is a pic of my trustworthy and over-weight BC Rich
Well 3 pic's
It's not as weird-feeling as you'd think... but I only use it for session work, so it's not really an issue. It has fairly amazing tone.
John, this guitar
I like a lot!
I have to agree with the above posts. Looks stunning.
Thanks it's not only my favourite guitar but also my main go-to gigging rock guitar so it gets played a lot, not babied at all. That and a Les Paul I like a lot & a Thin-Line Tele (for different sorts of things).
Heres my number one and always will be, original Warrior prototype made by the original luthiers. Sawamp ash body, mahogany neck, ebony board. SD 59 at the neck and SD PG at the bridge, taps on both.
Nice leather Tele!
Did it come with the optional wooden guitar strap???
Here's my 1985 Ferrari Red Standard next to a 1974 '55 Re-issue. Don't think they made too many of either.
Somewhere between '73 and '76 Northern Custom EB3/EBO3 copy made in Japan and distributed under the Northern name by a Canadian importer. Other than the maple bolt on neck and switch, virtually identical to a Gibson - feels the same and sound the same. $250 in a 2nd hand store with original hardshell case.
Northern also imported Fender copies made by the same Japanese copy, considered at the time to be better than the real thing.
I love this one too, John! It's a beauty!
Here's my contribution to this thread, and while not rare, you don't see many around. When I'm not playing a Les Paul, this is what I play most...it's a thin body (Les Paul width) Ovation Viper EA68:
I see a couple steinbergers here.I got a thing for headless axes. This one is smaller and more comfy than it looks. Honduras body,1/4 in maple cap,birdseye neck,ABM headpiece and...cheap pick ups. I can't justify $250 in a prototype/trial guitar. It was originaly a dark turquoise but the poly finish I was testing slowly faded it to green. Also you can feel the raised flame/grain pattern thru the finish like on some Les Pauls.
DRF, lets see the one in your Avatar, that looks hip!
this would have been my rarest guitar.
Clarke guitars were made in Edmonton in the 60s. They made 23 of them. I bought the last one they had (I had actually gone into the store to buy a '57 Strat for the same price. hmm). I sold it back to the Clarke family when I bought my R9. Other than a couple of dings, mine was 100% original.
I have started a website trying to find them, if anyone ever sees one
Where are the Clarke Guitars?
1930 National Tricone Style 3 "Lily of the Valley"
This is certainly my most unusual--and it is actually one of a kind.
A friend of mine made it, and at one point he was going to toss it away.
I rescued it. Originally it had 4 strings--held on by screws--those all fell out & the strings broke, so now it's a one string bass with an old machine head holding it on. I had planned to add at least one more string, but decided to leave it as a one string bass. It's actually quite fun to play. It has a plywood top & back with panelling sides.
