  1. Gibson ES-355
  2. American Standard P-bass in a fetching colour (sonic blue?  I can never get these darn colours straight!)
  3. Lefty American Standard P-Bass
  4. Bizarre but funky Fender bass.  don’t know what it is but I kinda like it!
  5. Sparkly Gretsch
  6. Lovely figured top on this ES-335
  7. Faded ES-335
  8. Blue Peter.  Er…I mean blue Paul!
  9. Lovely but filthy Les Paul Supreme.  

my 1992 Gibson Les Paul std with bird’s eye maple top.  Custom shop issue.  gold hardware.   I was one of the fortunate few to see Les Paul play at Fat Tuesdays in NYC back in 1993.  What a true gem of a person! Yes, he autographed everything for me.  There will never be another soul like his.  Thank you for the music and technology Les !
