    A sky blue Ovation Breadwinner? Not sure I've ever seen one. I had a black one back in the day; have only ever seen black and white. (Deacons were natural finish.)

    Thanks! Yes, it's a 1960 Duo-Sonic, my Da refinished it natural, had been horribly painted over when I got it in the '70s.

    Well I guess we all know who’s hosting the annual TGP jam session. We just need to bring our pedal boards. I call dibs on the couch.

    Awesome collection me man.

    Yep, good call. The sky blue was one of the Breadwinner stock colors.

    Haha, well those books belonged to the firm... so...

    I wish I still had access to that room! We used it for band practices on evenings/weekends.

    Thanks! To me they're all pretty things, and loud boxes. I'm kinda a troglodyte.

    Absolute beauty! Recently got a Duo Sonic reissue, and I've been drooling over real vintage ones.

    Thanks, they're neat little guitars. Strings are very bendy on those short-scale necks!

    Actually, out of all your guitars, I'd take the Peavey T-40 bass. :D
    Always loved the tone of those.

    All my gear together for the first time in 8 years!

    Such beautiful photos...

    I know a guy who has double your collection.
    He never sells his toys.
    Tells me it's his kids inheritance.

    Yes, they're very versatile! The natural finish ones, like mine, being Northern Ash, are heavy as feck though. I bet mine's 13 pounds if it's an ounce!

    It's cold outside.
    People that shame others for their collections are such buzz kills. Go rain on some else's parade. In fact that entire shaming-people-for-"over consumption" culture is BS from a bunch of whiny, and self righteous wet blankets. Mind your own business.

    The only thing I wouldn't do with my own money is multiples of the same guitar. We see that is sunburst LP guys, strat guys, PRS guys and Tele fiends. I prefer variety, but...whatever you do with your money is fine with me.

    Nice collection
    And to the people who ask how many can you play at once

    As many as he wants

    Pretty much what I wanted to post after reading the first couple pages.
    You go, OP. If you're not harming anyone in the process you do what makes you happy.

    AFA "How many can you play at once?" ... How many letters can you type at once on that keyboard?

    So, to all the "crass consumerism" folks, what do you do with your money? I mean, investing is only fun for certain types of people (not me). I don't want to be responsible for real estate. Cars and others are a bigger money sink than guitars. Just leaving it as cash in the bank? Charity would be really cool, and that's how I spend some of my money I don't need to live on. Still, there's more than enough left for a few toys!
