    3. 1986 Fender P Bass
    4. 1991 Charvel CX-391
    5. 1997 Fender American Strat

    Let's see here...

    Late 50's - early 60's Stella Sundale acoustic (my first guitar, handed down from my uncle)
    '71 Fender Mustang
    '72 Fender Bronco
    '94 Fender MIJ Jaguar
    '95ish Alevrez acoustic (still my #1 acoustic)

    I was a Fender guy early on, but got into Gibbys and LPs around 2000. Sadly, I haven't had the scratch to snag any vintage Gibsons.
