    I'd throw my hat on the ice for that trio. Excellent!

    The Johnny A will be one of my first post Lottery purchases. Along with my Germino Lead 55 and Bruno Cowtipper.

    Nice guitars, though you're missing one.


    A Gibson Les Paul Cloud 9.

    That Johnny A is sweet! How does it balance with the stap pin being on the back of the guitar instead of the upper bout? I ask because I am considering a solid body design that would have the starp horns like the Johnny A, and was wondering if the pin on the back would present a problem :)

    Very sweet indeed. Only met a few people with the "gusto" to actually buy a 'doc clone though. The only other one i've seen is a REALLY good repro - then of course there's the guy from PA with the actual hollow 'doc...he's a poster here i believe as well...

    Congrats! Its a fine lookin' arsenal!

    Yes the Cloud 9's are very nice!
    I also love chambered/semi hollow guitars.

    Right on.
    I think there are plenty of players and phans that would buy a 'doc clone if they were more readily available.
    There are definitely some skilled luthiers who will build them as a custom order or who are currently building some very nice guitars of similar design these days.
    Mine is a phantastic repro...it might not be 100% down to the details but it definitely has the quality, tone, and playability of a killer custom made instrument.
    I am amazed at the organic, warm, full tone this guitar delivers.
    The body is made of padauk.
    It's my phavorite guitar.

    rickdiculous is indeed a phellow phan with a killer 'doc style axe.
    I dig your guitar...it's also SWEET!

    Isn't Miles Long the member here who has the real 'doc?

    The Johnny A is really a cool guitar.
    Gisbon is doing a great job with them.
    The neck carve is awesome.
    It balances just fine...nice and easy to wear and play.

    The PRS is a beautiful example of an Employee Model.
    It's a one of a kind that's as nice as any Private Stock I have played.
    Great tone that should just get better as the years go by.
    She's a keeper for sure!

    I'm not sure of his member name, but the guy here with the real 'doc is the former guitarist for a band called Sage, outta the Philly area...

    Brian

    Edit: Actually, i recall now, that his member name is something like "Kinkirsi" or something similar, and his real name is Marc.
