So a few years ago, I asked my friend Mark Heaps to come by and take some snapshots of all my guitars. I don't think either of us really appreciated how many guitars were in my collection until we started setting up and dusting them off.  We took notes, there was catalogue work done, but then the idea sort of just calmed like dust on the mantle. 


Anyway, Mark decided to dig out those old shots, taken more then 5 years ago, and make a web poster that people could pop up and view for fun.  Some are now gone, and many have been added, but most remain the same.  So here are 100 of my vintage, retro, guitars ranging from classics to just weird wall hangers.  There's an original Airline (take that Jack White), Some Danelectros, a Rickenbacker Tuxedo 12 string, and many more.

Big version here!


I've actually written about a few of these for Guitar Player magazine.

See anything you want to know about, shoot me an email.  I love chatting about all these beauties!


Smell ya later!

just had to say: wonderful collection!! =O this is the point where i regret not buy all the guitars i've liked (specially those from early 60s, that i've never seen again) this may sound silly but: how many guitars do you buy each year? XD
