Rounding out my tone machine stable


Being already well-set for my much loved Strat tones with my blonde '76 Stratocaster, I wanted to more completely round out my tone making capability in two other major categories of guitar sounds... the humbucking world and the acoustic world.

With the generous and friendly help of my good friend Rex at the North Portland Guitar Center, I have rounded out the tone making machine stable with a barely-used Les Paul and a new Martin OM-CPA4 Rosewood. With the Strat and these two new guitars, combined with the Fender Strat Pawn Shop '51, my small music studio has become like a candy store for music making. Here are some pics.

And the new guitars that came home today...

Now I can really give my calluses a serious work-out! Christmas has come early for me... and I feel very thankful and blessed.
