Today's victim is the Taylor, just put fresh strings on it. It has 14s on it now for DADGAD. Pretty tricky to find strings thick enough. You don't realise how bad your guitar is sounding until you change the strings eh? ;)

Don't think I've quite perfected this yet, but i'm getting there. Getting quicker anyway...

Hmmm, maybe I should try this lamp shade photography,,, you can't even see my Ibanez in most of the photos I take of it. Of course I'd also need to learn photo shop or the like.........

Haha, damn you manipulated that one to hell and back. Is that a right handed tremolo arm you have on it?

Looking at that, I wonder what the best colour background would be when photographing a black guitar. A good chunk of that photo is white, so the camera might have compensated for that and made everything else darker. I'll need to experiment when I get my Gaskell. 95% of black guitar photos on eBay are near invisible :lol:

Trem arm is the standard one that came with guitar, only replaced p/ups with S/D Blackouts & close to a full days work by tech sorting out twisted neck,fret dress & setup.

After I had all the work done on the guitar I found my sales reciept & realized it was still under warranty, oh sh*t!!!!!!
Plays beautiful now & the Blackouts are an incredible p/up, standard EMG's where toneless wonders & now live at the local tip
The KH-202 has a very slim fast neck :twisted: the only pain is string changes on the Floyd.
Would still like a Jem though :D

I wanted one so bad when I was younger. Metallica was what first got me into guitar, I just wanted to play like Kirk.

Here's the last of my guitars to be photographed, until my collection grows again :twisted: I'm getting much faster at it now, learning a lot. Gaskell AllRounder
