    Some awesome gear in this thread!! Guitar player here, have been playing since I was 3, when my dad bought be my own instrument to keep off of his. I dabble in piano, mandolin, lap dulcimer, and accordion as well, but guitar is what I come back to. My gear is pretty standard stuff, for the most part. Got no pics at the moment, but could maybe take some.

    Long time trumpet player (great high school band), currently have a Connstellation and a restored Olds Special, both from the 50's (Olds for sale, Conn-never!)
    Harmonica for fun, new bass player (getting better fast) and I have an acoustic guitar and a keyboard that I've been neglecting for too long.

    True Confession- I actually sold a few knives to pay for the bass rig :eek:

    Played a cornet/trumpet for 3 years, then switched over to sousaphone/street bass/up-right tuba for HS/College. Tubas/etc were all supplied by the schools since they are so expensive. As I spent the next 10+ years on Navy ships where room was at a premium, I bought a baritone and packed that around the world on ships. Irritated the heck out of folks in the wardroom, so I usually had to go hide on the fantail to play. Kept at it until a 5 years ago when a NEOASBM decided to steal it along with all my power tools, antique silverware/dishes, yard equipment, waverunner, electronics etc. Just haven't got around to replacing it yet. May splurge and go all the way for a tuba, but good ones are up in the multi-thousands. :(

    Acoustic guitar and keyboards. I'm a published songwriter. I went to college at Long Beach State with Richard and Karen Carpenter. Wrote songs with John Bettis. Played in a group with Steve Perry before he joined Journey. Met Duane Allman when he played for The Hourglass. Made a living playing in a cover band in the early 70's. Played synthesizer on Peppino D'Agostino's Acoustic Spirit album. Far, far too many stories to recount here.
