    Share some pics of your guitars that have have visual signs of play and love. Beaters are welcome.

    My contribution is my prized $130 Johnson JG615 (I believe) that I picked up at a local guitar shop. It's been to countless hangouts and smoke-spots and has been played thoroughly for over a year and a half.
    (That isn't grime. It's fingerboard wear)

    Although the top is seemingly clean from a distance, my '93 G6128T is mildly dented on top and heavily scraped up with even multiple splinters on the backside. Makes playing hard and "wearing a belt on the night of the gig" all the more done with ease, without the worry of leaving an unsightly mark that isn't already there.

    Here's my 78 Tele Thinline. When I got her she didn't have a blemish, mark or smudge on it. 35 years later, she's carrying a little damage... uhhh, I mean relicing.

    I dig the way the triburst finish has worn down to plain Ash on the upper bout.

    69 Les Paul Deluxe with years of funk built in. Smells far worse than it looks.

    Thanks!!! I love this guitar more than a man should love an inanimate object, but then to me, it's not really inanimate at all.

    Had her refretted a couple years ago with jumbo frets and it plays like a dream - actually plays better than it ever did before the refret.

    And those Seth Lover designed wide range humbuckers really give it a unique voice and tone palette.

    Nice beat on partscaster with a 33 year old neck that feels like slipping into an old pair of shoes.
