I have one Ric, almost had two, and that's my 360. It made me a better guitar player (I played only that guitar for over two months, picked up my others, and was BETTER!)

My others are:
2005 Gibson SG - My main guitar
2008 Fender Jazzmaster Classic Player
'76 Gibson Les Paul - L6s Model designed by Bill Lawrence (I call it a Les Paul because it's just like one, other than it being made of SOLID Maple. My Six switch is converted to only change pickup positions and silence them at position 1)
Fender/Squier Telcaster - I've used this on some recordings; sounds better than an American Tele, but isn't built like one.
Gibson/Squier '51 - Has Seymour Duncans, and a Gibson sticker on the headstock.
Tacoma Acoustic - Made in Washington
Squier Jagmaster

Here's an additional question - my wife believes that I am a Fender and Rickenbacker player, she feels that they have a certain lightness that the Gibson's don't have - so my question is:

" What guitar(s) does your wife\girlfriend\husband\boyfriend\life partner think that you should play - and why? ".


I think answer #1 would be "NONE- then the bank account would be many $1,000 of Dollars better off." That said, my wife of 29 years, god bless her, is not really into guitars. When we were first married, I owned only one guitar, a reddish sunburst Gibson SG 3. On day I swapped it with a friend for a black Strat. My friend threw in a distinctive checkerboard strap. Susie came into the apartment to find me playing my new acquisition. She looked at me and the Strat for several seconds, then asked "is that a new strap?"

ric 325C58 with Lennon mods.
Epiphone 65 Casino Lennon Signature
Fender MIA Strat 1995
Maton Tommy Emmanuel Signature acoustic

anyone that doesn't know Maton guitars, an aussie brand, they make the best acoustics in the world IMHO, phosphor bronze strings, such a sound.

next to buy will be a Ric 360/12 and a 325C64

I agree totally. Matons are a Beautiful guitar.
I have an EM325C Maton acoustic that I purchased new 12 months ago. I love that guitar. I also own a 2004 American standard Fender Strat, a Takamine electric Acoustic that is put to shame by the Maton. Thats the other guitars in my stable.

But the ultimates for me are my 1984 320 fireglo, 1989 360/12 jetglo and my 2009 660 fireglo. its nothing like the collection of guitars that some forum friends have here,but never the less I'm very proud of them.

Lessee, what do I have at the present time:

1. 2009 mapleglo 360

2. NOS, 2007, blueburst Reverend Club King HB (I got it at a great price this past september from a local shop, who is no longer a Reverend dealer, and had it as a leftover)

3. 2000 or 2001 Danelectro MOD7, 7-string guitar (I wish Rickenbacker would take the plunge, and make some 7 or 8 string guitars).

Considering:

1. Schecter Jazz 7, 7-string guitar I'm watching on evilBay at the present time (yes, I like 7-string guitars, they're fun to play!).

2. Another Reverend ('cuz I LOVE their necks)

3. Something single pickup for some punk & roll, like an Esquier

2000 Ric 360 fireglo
2008 Gretsch Silver Falcon
2009 Gibson LP Goldtop 52 Tribute

I love them all. Now I have to practice and get better. Tommy Emmanuel is the best guitar player I've ever seen. And he's such a nice fellow. Check him out on youtube. Incredible.

What's left after doling out a iew experiments to friends who don't know what they want:

660/12 MG
330/6 FG
330/6 MG black hardware
650D - loaned to nephew but probably never getting it back.
650D (yes a second one. I was seduced by the wood pattern).
Tele clone.
Squier Strat short scale, surprisingly good for the price.
Epiphone 400 SG with Bigsby
Godin A12
Godin A6
Takamine 345G-12 electro/acoustic
Gretsch G5122 Korean Country Gentleman

Ibanez 300 Active Bass (2x) for that occasional excursion down lower.

Banjoline (banjo tuned like a guitar).

Godin A8 mandolin, probably the most adjustable and easy to play mandolin ever made.

Ovation A8 mandolin, my 2nd choice.

Burswood 6-string bought at Target. Now don't unload on that one. It's actually half way decent and got me going again after 45 years of musical inactivity.

Some stuff I have let slip thru my hands:

325v64 - was in PERFECT shape. Didn't want to be the guy who couldn't play it but just ding it. I till bang mt head against the wall for selling that one.
Gretsch G5120 - too thick for my fat tummy.
Epiphone Casino - really did not interest me at all.
Ovation Celebrity CC248 - see comments about Gretch above.
