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: its history, specs, and how it got to be added to the collection. Or select the header to learn more about my collection of acoustic guitars, with a separate chapter on my Tacoma acoustic bass and guitars, PRS guitars, or G&L guitars and basses. For the latter, a narrative has been created with the pickups used on the G&L Broadcaster/ASAT models as ‘leitmotif’ for the guitars with a separate section for all basses. To tell the full story, some hard to find instruments still missing from my collection are marked by square brackets. A bullet 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 2 groups: the non-G&L Gallery and G&L Gallery.
