My '73 Bronco with amazing checking:
^Looks like a cracked egg shell, cool!
And this early seventies Aria Diamond 1803T:
Two from 1966 (Jag is gone but JM will be around forever)
My late '60s Fandel Jet. $100 pawnshop find.

More to the pile again..
Those are both beautiful guitars!
Here's a trio shot:
And some I recently found at a local guitar show (NOT MINE):
I just got this one in a trade, sadly I am selling it as I am not enough of a JM fan to justify keeping it.
The amps! What are you hiding back there?!
That's an old picture and not all my amps at that time are in it but IIRC I had...(none of these are RI, all are originals)
3 Tweed Bassmans 56, 58, 60. The 58 is gone now
3 Tweed Deluxes 56,57,59. Only the 56 remains
60 Tweed Champ. Gone now
66 Super Reverb.
Three Supro Supremes from the 40s
And some new amps...
It got stupid. I'm trimming things down slowly.
An out-of-focus picture of my 62 Jaguar. It's so clean it looks almost new. I really need to take some better photos of it.
Here's a better photo of the back.
I picked this '64 Jaguar up a few weeks ago. Probably going to get a refin eventually, but just leaving it as-is for now.

I'm one owner separated from you on that guitar. I bought it from the original owners son. I liked it but that neck was way small for my hands. I am very glad it got to someone who will love it like it should be loved.
PS: It took me a whole night of work to get all the varnish off of the chrome. The old feller sanded it and brushed on some varnish without ever removing anything. Check out my instagram for pics of it stripped.
Can you tell me about the mustang tremolo? Is that an aftermarket brass part?
It's actually a gold "cigar tube" from an all gold trem unit. Someone parted one out along the way, and I bought that vintage trem with the gold part.
That gold sparkle Mustang now has Lindy Fralin Blues Special Mustang pickups installed. Got a Fender Mustang case for it, too.
