I had a Pacer Classic too, definitely good for what they cost!
My newest. Martin OM-28. They don't get much better.
Looks mint! I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks!
It's hands down the best acoustic guitar I've ever picked up...so yeah...well you get what you pay for I suppose.
its currently on hold as i had stuff come up, hopefully i can restart it soon..
Got a PRS SE Fredrik Akesson signature guitar.
I did clean it before taking the photo. Honestly.
I got this update and had a choice of 3 different pickguards (they are included with the guitar) and chose this anodized Gold (looks whitish) one :
Knobs will be the same colour as the pick guard, tuners will be gold.
more updates to come, hopefully.
My main guitar is an ibanez rg7620, its the one true love of my life. It's been resprayed and had a few things tweaked over the years, still goes hard!
Edwards E-AL 166 got delivered last week. Need to re-string and intonate it.
Nice, did you get it through a local guy, or import it? I'm on the lookout on Jauce for a Navigator Les Paul, either a black or white custom style, or a cherry burst standard. I have a mate that imports CIJ Ibanez and Fender, and he swears by Jauce for value and reliability, but even a second hand Navigator is a pretty significant jump in outlay - so I'm still a bit unsure.
Damn that is a beast! love it
Imported it from Japan. Wasn't that hard to fill out the form, just did it through .pdf and email. All up with customs and GST was around $2,000.
A lot of the big stores will deal with OS customers, better than going through a middle-man. Exchange rate is gonna hurt more than anything.
Little over a year and these should be turning up in the next ten days or so...
As promised here is a piccie of my new guitar.
Made in Melbourne beauty, Cole Clark FL 2 in full mahogany.
i'm very very happy, and Cole Clark after sales service is Awesome.
The story is that I picked up the last CC Mog from a local guitar shop
When I got home I noticed that there were a couple of "gaps" in one of the joins.
unsure if this was a cosmetic thing or not I emailed the guys at CC with pics.
They immediately responded assuring me it was a cosmetic issue but invited me to bring it into their factory for a check.
When I popped into their factory they gave me a little factory tour and showed the build process and explained on a partially assembled guitar why those gaps were only cosmetic.
After which they grabbed a couple of fresh ones off the prod line and let me choose if I wanted to swap mine anyway (which I did to the current one you see on the red couch)
now that's service!
Nice. How does it sound? Mahogany acoustics are quite unique in terms of tone.
I think the one you ended up with looks best too, the scratch plate just kinda completes it.
Making use of my time off over Christmas to give the old (22yo) guitar a strip down, clean and restring.

Nice ^^ Always feels good cleaning them up and putting new strings on. Gives a sort of new feeling to it again haha
Congrats - they're some nice looking beasties.
Your post just reminded me (multi-scale guitars, by Perry Ormsby who runs the guitar making course...)
Firstly, there is a user SneakyJak from the ozbass forums who's been doing some really interesting luthierie the last couple of years - he's 3 instruments in and for this thread I though you guys might like to check out his first build: the tiny headless 7 string multiscale electric
Build Log here: http://ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=17441
Secondly, for us East Coast folk who have a hard time getting over to WA for Perry's guitar making courses, Melbourne Polytechnik (David Searle) have been running guitar/bass making course for the last few years, and it's popularity has resulted in David Searle and Robert Pryke starting the dedicated "Melbourne School of Guitar Making".
The guitar above was born from the polytechnik course, but there is a bunch of guys on the ozbass forums who are churning out some really interesting and diverse instruments from this school:
Kermit - 6 String multi-scale bass
Single-cut 5 string fretless
12 String Acoustic
Bass build with custom Cave Passive fx unit onboard
Random works highlighted
I thought if anyone is interested in cutting their luthierie teeth a little closer to home, this is a great opportunity
Wow. That is crazy lol What pickups are they? That is one funky ass 7 string
