    Love! It would be right in my wheelhouse if it was roasted and oiled!

    It’s such a great neck, hand carved. A little bit of bling that the audience don’t get to see!

    I’m a big myrtlewood fan. Another underrated and underused luthier wood.

    Maybe a bit OT, but I’m not usually a big fan of maple necks on electrics, but ironically my favorite playing LP is this custom:

    Here is my new love: martin D-18 with Bigsby neck, 1 of 100, signed. The rosewood body gives it such girth but the maple neck balances the low-mids with mids and high-mids without losing the jangle. it's loud yet polite and every note just stuns.

    It’s probably not a stretch to state that’s a nice guitar.

    Dude...you need to just stop it...how many times do I have to tell you...I dont want your ginormous archive of guitar porn! Pusher man...geez! At this rate I'll be blind, have hairy palms and quite possibly a permanent twitch or even worse be found dead with a big smile on my face:confused:....okay, those things aren't that bad...yeah, so scratch what I said...I think you need your own dedicated guitar porn page you could call it the @11top porn-o-plenty collection. o_O;)

    How did this thread go to page two with no mention of the iconic Gibson J-200?
