I just bought my first Martin! A CF-1 collaboration
between Martin and Dale Unger of American Archtops.
Since the Summer of 1991 when I attended a builder's
convention, I have come to appreciate the painstaking and
deliberate process involved in creating an archtop guitar.
A flat top will tell you everything about it in about 5 minutes,
an archtop takes that much time to warm up. Fortune and
opportunity smiled yesterday and I am still savoring the moment.
Kind of reminds me of April 1991 when I bought my Ric 360/12,
I just couldn't put it down.

I reckon I'll repost my collection...

Gibson SG 2005 - Main guitar
Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster 2008
Gibson L6-S 1976, with a pickup mod
Modded Squier '51 (There is a whole forum of '51 modders)
Fender Classic Player Strat (Notice I don't own American Fenders...)
Rickenbacker 620/12
Tacoma DM9 - 2007, around the time Fender bought the company, then shut it down. Made in Washington.

Future guitars: Rickenbacker 620... I want a 610 too. Plus, I like the 400 models, and I wouldn't mind having my 2010 360 back... That would be nice.

After a few years, my collection has grown a bit as well:

- 2002 Ric 360/6 - Burgandyglo (my first 6 string and it still sounds amazing with the high-gains)
- 1991 Ric 381v69/12 - Jetglo (high gains as well)
- 2010 Ric 4001v63 - Jetglo
- 1990 Pedulla MVP4 - Peacock-burst?
- 1959 Ric 450 - Black (did they even refer to it as "Jetglo" back then? It's clearly been through a war: broken headstock repaired, refinished ages ago, re-cut pickguard, new toasters... but it sounds like an absolute monster and it's probably the most versatile 6-string I've played)
- 1966 Guild Starfire XII - Amber/Brown/Cherry (not really sure about the color, but it clearly spent a lot of time in smokey places because it took 2+ years to get rid of that smell)
- 1954 Harmony H42 Newport Stratotone - Sunshine Yellow (has to be re-tuned after every song but that one neck pickup sounds fantastic)
- 1968 Standel 430C - Cherry (like a Casino or 330 with a super thin neck... sounds incredible with the deArmonds and an old Gretsch amp)
- 1969 Fender Mustang - Competition Orange (in absolutely amazing shape - great little neck pickup too!)
- 2011 Fano SP6 - Surf Green (a hybrid of a telecaster and a Les Paul Jr. with a TV Jones Powertron at the neck)
- an old 60s Kay Plywood bass

I have a new Telecaster, and recently reacquired my Squier Jagmaster.

New to the forum; not to Rics... in the mid '80's through the mid '90's I owned 19 of them- at once. Now that I have, essentially, become my grandfather and no longer "play out" (at least I haven't for some time now) I've trimmed my list down to:
-Ric 660/12
-Tele Deluxe
-Alvarez-Yairi Dreadnaught 12 (can't think of the model off hand)
-2 Davy Stuart citterns (10 string): 24" and a 16"

First, I have a confession to make; All my guitars are OTHER guitars. In my defense, however, I am a Bass player, and have 2 Ricks in my herd; An '01 4003 and a '73 4001. I never really wanted to play guitar, because of my fingers - short and very thick. Basses work much better for me. Anyhow, the list (all are leftys)-
-Jay Turser Telecaster clone
-Hagstrom Swede (Gold Top)
-Epiphone Sheraton II
-Epiphone EA-250
-another EA-250 that someone converted to a lefty, and grafted an Epi 12-string acoustic neck on it. Doesn't sound too bad, either; at least, it wouldn't if I was able to fret less than 4 or 5 strings with one finger!

Will I ever get a Rickenbacker guitar? Probably not. Leftys are scarce, very expensive when you find one, and why should I deprive a lefty GUITAR player of something he can really use and enjoy?
