After moving a little over 3 years ago, my guitars were all stored in flightcases until I could get around to getting them out on display, ready to play.

Thankfully, that day has come - so lots of Woodies Hangars laters - here's the full set smile



Trouble is - I've run out of wall, but want to add to the collection!

I'd love to add a Washburn N7 and a BM Red Special.
I had a look at the site and was surprised to see your guitars on the front page hehe
As was I!

I contacted them about it - specifically through the 'I don't know what hangar I need' link. I think they used my pic (no idea where they got it from - probably here LOL!) as I use all the variants of their hangars.

It's a tiny business and having spoken to them (about using the pic wink they've just kept their heads above water and kept going. Glad to support them, especially as it's a UK company.

Highly recommend the hangars (no, I'm not on commission smile ). I'm not keen on hanging them from the neck especially as this room does humidity wise (but I monitor it). The great thing about Woodies is that you can barely see them and there's zero stress on the guitar.

Thanks for flagging the hangers, I was thinking this morning about hanging one of my old guitars up on the landing and it was annoying that I'd have black plastic bits showing. This solves it nicely so I've ordered some.

Just bought myself new guitar (I’m a one guitar guy so it’s a big deal for me) and a Helix LT and I’m kind of in love with it

I'm interested in opinions and what people would expect to pay for a similar guitar built to spec once I post pics, before I reveal all!
Ballpark figure of £2.5 - £3k should cover a bolt-on neck that is top notch. Price may be a bit lower if warmth/usacg/musikraft parts are used but its the time invested to finish & setup that you are really paying for.
Yes that's the sort of figure I've been quoted..

Haha thanks, it’s good to be here. After a couple of different strats that I liked but not loved, this feels so right! I’ve never bonded with a guitar instantly like this.

Well my body is all cut and routed, ready for spraying. Swamp ash, I'm sure you'll have noticed.

Here's one* that's on the way out unfortunately:



34 years old and still going strong. It just lost out in the double-cut shoot out to my #1:



That's despite the SG having the neck pickup in the right place, and 4 controls. Both are light (SG is just 6 pounds) and both have the early '60s Gibson neck profile.


* Three sold already this year, and now down to about 12 (or at least 12 that Mrs Goat knows about). Next - to choose one of two Strats ... frown

What are the 12 that remain?

Love the DC.
That DC, regular LP standard, LP Jr, 335, Tele, two Strats, Thorn, Yamaha silent acoustic, Cuban-style Tres, Jazz bass and a silly pointy thing.

How do you find the Yamaha silent guitar? I keep looking...

It does what it does very well. It sounds nice - always quite polite. Mine's the SLG200 - which has some DSP smarts to model a mic-ed acoustic - you can blend that with the piezo signal. It definitely adds more 'body' to the tone, and does a good enough job for recording and headphone practice. And I can see why some play it live (no feedback).

Caveat: part of playing an acoustic is the feel of the big sound box, and the sound of it being right there within your arms. When you dig in, it's really ... er ... real. So playing the Yamaha is psychologically quite different - even with a very nice set of studio monitors. In contrast, the Tres (which is converted from an old cheap S&P cedar acoustic) is a riot - it's alive in your hands. No-one will ever say that about the Yamaha.

Doesn't look like much yet, but it's going to look like a Cabronita / 72 Deluxe hybrid once it's finished...

Well my custom job is sprayed and relic'd! Lake Placid Blue over Sunburst. I've hidden the maker just for a bit of fun (but will reveal all soon), interested what people think and how much you would expect to pay for this. All hand built by a British luthier, including the pickups (which clearly aren't in yet!). The answer may surprise you.

Yup I'm 100% I know the Luthier now! - Can't wait to hear how you get along, looks as good as everything else he's done.
