Here is a picture of my 1968 Fender Coronado I got for Christmas...

And here is a picture of my Galveston Electric I like to play every so often...It's a very heavy guitar...

Some rare birds there. We opened for the Georgia Satellites back in the day and the guitar player had a guitar with a clear body. I can't remember the brand name though.

I think it was a PRS, but I was unable to get a good look at it.

Keith Richards also has a clear guitar that he uses occasionally. You can see it here:

My see through is a Galveston...mighty heavy, and is used very little because of the weight and because of my solo gigs.

I actually played it lastnight at an open mic night with some people celebrating an anniversary of the bar...When all else fails, All Along the Watchtower is a great jam session song

Gotta love the internet, lol.

I've spent two or three hours at a time just surfing guitars.

This is the place I used to hang out at when I lived in Chicago.

If ever in Rochester, NY, don't miss the House of Guitars. Similar to the place in Chicago. Like going to a museum only you can buy.

Keef has the earliest known Fender Twin with serial #000003! Puts it around 1953.

In the interest of interesting music stuff.. no not from tone deaf me, but rather my accomplished son... ZelieNic. Here is a copy of one of his Fender Amps. Only 40 ever made.

So the game is up. No. 9 is actually Nigel Tufnall. Still having problems fitting the meat on the bread? :lol:

Vibroverb. Very cool amp.

Decent rockabilly scene here in PHoenix. Flathead would be at the top of the heap.

It is a great guitar...I read an article on Neil and his gear, he never changes his stuff, except minor repairs, since the early 70's...His acoustic guitar he uses was once owned by Hank Williams Sr...
