My guitar and bass collection


The big index

This is the index to my complete collection of unions of wood, glue, strings, and (hopefully) love and attention of a true craftsperson. Select an instrument to read more specifics: the history of the model, many of its specs, and how it got to be added to the collection. Or select the header to learn more about my collection of acoustic, PRS, or G&L guitars. For the latter, a narrative has been created with the pickups used on the G&L Broadcaster/ASAT models as ‘leitmotif’. To tell the full story, some hard to find guitars, still missing from my collection, are marked by square brackets. A bullet instead of an actual image indicates no pictures are (yet) available. And if you are visually inclined and have a couple of minutes to spare, watch them all pass by in this large slide show...
