    my dad makes guitars.. he's quite good at it, only as a hobby too, not cheap.

    accidentally used his $200 (US) peice of wood, aged 5 years, from america for my science project (mouse trap box).. boy he wasn't happy.

    bitch to work with, 1/4 cut wood so it split pretty easy.. but oh well, expensive mouse trap :p

    On the left is my first POS a Prince RW-750. It was my first guitar, a cheap and nasty job to see if I could actually learn to play. Since I figures that I could, sort of, play, I bought the guitar on the right, a Fender DGS14S TF. A nice sounding instrument and much better quality than the other one. I keep the prince to play around with alternate tunings and it gives me something to go mental on without worroying about damaging the Fender.

    They're both beautiful instruments and really fun to play :)

    I got a:
    Squire P-Bass standard special. I love the sound of it!


    I also got a trading post $80 special as a backup bass.


    My brother has:
    A fender strat
    A yamaha accoustic (about 20 years old)
    A squire strat
    and a Maton 12 string (i love this guitar, it sounds sooo nice)

    But the best bit about his setup is his amp. a 1976 Marshall Bluesman valve amp :)

    i have a Estevé classical guitar
    supposedly hand made in spain, pretty nice sounding classical for $600 i think
    played it for about 5-6 years but stopped lessons and playing recently
    :(
    the memories......

    heheh,

    it seems all the great sounding acoustic guitars use spruce (very thin in places) as the top and rosewood as sides/back
    they should find another wood to use other than rosewood, its ridiculously expensive and rare
