Default My modest collection

I'm the wife of Thermionic Idler, who is in the midst of a fairly epic project that I'm not sure he's posted about here yet. I've come to DIYAudio to look for ideas for my very first project, a small analog guitar amp because we roll old school in this house. (So old school, the first house we lived in together was named Old School House.)

I've currently got:
  • Washburn EA-45 acoustic/electric, walnut finished cedar top, rosewood back/sides
  • Larrivée parlor guitar (spruce/mahogany)
  • Yamaha CVP-509 Clavinova (Therm's baby)

And! I'm about to get back, finally, a first-year reissue Danelectro DC-3 (silver sparkle) that I had to sell to a friend years ago to help fund an emergency cross-country move. He offered it back to me recently, admitting he only ever played it a few times, and soon it will be winging its way across the Atlantic to my new home in England.

My dream electric is an original '72 Tele Custom (I played one once, years before the reissues, and have never forgotten how perfect it felt/sounded), but the DC-3 is a fun toy and is also sparkly, because some little girls never grow out of sparkly, and no matter how much flannel I wear or how many tattoos I get, I am apparently one of them.

I'm also in the market for a ukulele as Therm has been getting me into George Formby. I'll probably go with a Washburn since they're a trusted source. Experienced uke players are free to try to change my mind. In fact I'd welcome opinions re: whether to go with a soprano or concert.

Those original Tele 'versions' were great - and if the Custom is good enough for Keef... I used to have a Tele Deluxe - the one with the 2 wide range pickups and the Strat neck... Mine also had a trem that was fitted at Fender... I regret selling that one!

As for my current squeezes - kit-built guitars, and parts-casters, always, apart from one of these, which used to be a US Strat - now with Floyd Rose and other... differences. The two Les Pauls are my main pieces. The quilted one and the 'B**tardCaster' both have my own home-made pickups in it (even made the coil winding machine myself). The resonator was all acoustic, until I got a bit handy with a drill and put the electrics in there. Now it sounds like a monster when plugged in and cranked up!
