Got to try that sometime, IMHO a six inch mid works much better than the omnipresent cheapo piezo horns. I've seen that wiki on talkbass, but it's just too much info to digest :-)

Those are some beautiful pictures.

When I am cleared from the doctors, I will post the pictures of my guitars. I have Eppi Les Paul, XV550, and a Thinline Telecaster copy, that was built for me at the factory when I visited Korea, years..., back (1984) Pusan. Pick it up for $200.00.

Take care

Gday Everyone,

I noticed this is the place to put some pictures of my guitars.

I am a Luthier of many years, the Guitars are my Signature Series hand crafted from Australian timbers dated in the thousands of years.
The timber was felled in about 1914 by the soldier settlers returning from the war.

They have very unique tonal qualities, the angled head Guitars are for Blues with very warm tones when played clean or any style through effects pedals.

The other style shown is especially suited for people who prefer to play with the fingers rather than use a pick. These also have a very warm tone & can certainly be used with a pick through effects pedals etc.
These are designed to be very bright so when played with the thumb & fingers it tones them down about equal to someone else playing with a pick on the angled head style.

Both styles have a lot of harmonics & a great natural Timbre.

Hope you like them.

All designs & Pictures are copyright of course.

Thanks kavermei,

A lot of time & effort goes into every individual guitar, your comment is very gratifying.

Gday EverythingPCB,

I don't think there's any showing off as such, I think the main thing is to show what we can do or what we may have.
Everyone who owns a Guitar normally has there preferences, some for nostalgic reasons like the Fenders or Gibsons etc.

Others because of owning something Custom or Hand Made with unique tones but at the end of the day as long as we are happy with what we have or what we hand craft then that is what it's all about.

Guitars are very much a personal taste item.
Personally I much prefer hand made custom guitars rather than the mass produced copies of the originals.
It's like Fender for instance, a REAL Fender hasn't been produced since about 1967 when Mr Fender sold his business for about 13 Million dollars, a lot of money back then & even now.
They are all just Mass produced copies since then & more than likely are now being made cheaply in China unfortunately.

I prefer a Natural timber finish rather than just paint, as the saying goes, if you have to paint timber to make it look ok, then it can't be all that good underneath.
A lot of other people are very different of course, they prefer painted boards with plastic parts all over them that are produced in there tens of thousands at a dollar each.

I know what I prefer & quality is the first requirement.

I've been playing guitar for 29 years. Got this Washburn A-10K in 1987. If you look closely, you can see where my pic is actually digging into the guitar because I play so hard and heavy. I use #11 strings and break them regularly. I have a Crate G120C stereo head which is powering 4 12" speakers, and a wireless system that allows complete freedom. If you are not playing with a wireless, I highly recommend it!
Drums are a double bass Pearl set that hammers.
