That sucks on the 12 string....
I've got a 2012 Gibson Les Paul 60's tribute (faded black, I added black pickup covers, toggle coin, switch tip, black metal input jack square, and had a custom all black pick guard made for it) AND got it signed by Unknown Hinson (look him up, he's a riot!)
Just got (for free) a Squire Bullet (basically a fender strat) in blue w/ white pick guard and mahogany fretboard, cleaned it up and it plays great.
Also have an old 70's Epiphone ET-275, similar to the wilshire body. It's sunburst, I also have a twin for it in black.
an old acoustic by grandpa used to play, of unknown name. It's ruined from being in a moist environment.
Also, my fav... a late 40's Gibson ES-150 electric acoustic. Freaking sweet guitar.
Lastly an old chinese kit guitar that my dad put together in the 60s or 70s.
I HAD an offbrand 4string bass that looked like a fender jazz bass, but wasnt a fender. Sold that.
Like I said, I cant play real well, and dont expect ever to be able to, but guitars are beautiful.
