 More guitar shopping from this week:

  1. Extremely pretty PRS semihollow
  2. Custom Shop ES-335 VOS
  3. Les Paul Supreme (I think…)
  4. Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster
  5. Cherry Casino!  Don’t see many of these…
  6. Gorgeous Martin 00-28V
  7. 2015 Fender American Vintage Jaguar
  8. ditto
  9. ditto.  So expensive for no apparent reason.  :\ 

Sonic Blue Squier VM Jazzmaster that’s been given the full AVRI upgrade treatment. Now adorned with a wonderful Couch Guitar Strap.

Truth be told, my father and I are more builders and modders than players (though the idea was always to learn how to play guitar on our own home-built instruments). But armed with knowledge culled from countless hours reading mmguitarbar’s invaluable social media instructionals, I felt emboldened to try a setup of my own. It didn’t turn out half bad! Those guys are the best!

More from guitar shopping this week.  The AVRI Jazzmaster with matching headstock was lovely.  As was the 3 tone sunburst SG Standard.  The only thing I don’t like about this SG is that it has those new automatic tuners.  I have nothing against the idea of the guitar tuning itself, it’s just that they are so ugly and clunky and gigantic.
