That should really be posted in "One-sentence indie rock confessions"...

Meh - how many people who bitch about pointy metal guitars are perfectly fine with other weird shit like those 70s Teisco or Fujigen guitars, though? I love my shitty King V. Fuck it.

Strat Am Vint '62 (late 90s I believe), Westbury Deluxe (1980), Yamaha LL16 in ugly sunburst (2010). I am quite fond of them. The Westbury in particular, her neck and heavy weight and slightly sticky black surface, puts me in the mood for tender love. And the Strat resonates very nicely, like a big house made of wire and amber in the dry mountain wind. And the Yamaha is loud, and if I rub ever so softly the friction ridges of my fingerprint across one string, she whispers beautifully and sings slender harmonics, and it was cheap.

Holy shit.

Do you agree that the Evertune bridge is the best guitar-related invention since strings?

The closest I got was a U.S. Jackson Kelly KE2, but I kept breaking strings w/ the Floyd. It had to go.

I wish I had even a modicum of time to play this fuggin thing. So busy....
What do you like about the evertune? What should I be looking for when I use the guitar?

I also wish I had time to play this new one:

yeah. It's nearly dead mint. A little buckle rash on the back, but it pretty much looks like it's been in a case since 1970. Even has all the case candy and the keys to the lock.
