A few of my guitars ( Esp dv-8 with cold sweats, Prs SE single with VHII's, Ibanez SV5470 with c-pigs) and my bedroom amps the Peavey 6505 and Vox night train... I have no close neighbors and my roommate is a drummer.  :D

Give me your SV!!!

Do the Warpigs sound good in them?
"Would you like some lemon oil?"
"Oh, no thanks, I don't eat fruit."

I'm sorry, but if you want my SV you will have to pry it out of my dead, cold herculean grip, the thing will be buried with me.
And the Warpigs sound amazing, The SV is a very thin guitar and the warpigs beef the sound up quite a bit. I was also very surprised at the cleans i can get out of them, especially when coil tapped. The bridge pickup when tapped in this sounds almost identical to my old tele.

i've lost your NGD, tom! very nice SG, i see... :)

Each time I strap on a Les Paul I feel disappointed, as they just don't feel right any more after using the SG :( Awkward and clunky! Almost tempted to sell the Pearl.

Don't have a pic yet, sorry, well, it isn't finished and the body is currently out getting finished.

I live near one of the guys who builds bodies and necks for Feline guitars among other companies, He worked out that he could make bodies and necks, put a gloss coat on the front of the necks and sell them out of a local shop for around 200, so I bought a particularly nice specimen that they had in stock, most of the bodies were telecasters, flame maple on solid ash backs with maple/rosewood necks. The model I noticed in the window was flame maple topped body, birdseye maple one piece neck, ash backed body, I had to buy it.

Haggled the shop owner down to 180 and it soon dawned on me that I had bought a tone chambered beauty as well. :D after getting in touch with the builder to get some test pieces of wood to finish I got to ask him some questions. The guitar body and neck set I had bought it turns out were part of a set being sold to a high end company, but were rejected for a couple of natural blemishes in the wood of the back.

I'm at college currently and I managed to persuade one of the guys in the car maintenance department to spray it with nitro-cell for nothing, this guy used to spray custom colours for BMW.

Cant wait to get the body back, the neck sprayed, a good set of bareknuckles into it (any suggestions? going for a classic tele sound with a more punchy neck sound) It's going to be bitchin'. I'll post pics when it's done.

This is an easy choice for me: my no. 1 - my Les Paul Custom in Silverburst equipped with a CS Bridge and Mule Neck. I love it...
bridge: NB, CS, C-WP, TM
neck: NB, TM, MQ

You're probably right, I don't really need the money and it's a great guitar.. I just haven't really used it/wanted to use it for a while!

That being said I don't think I've regretted selling any guitar stuff I've got rid of apart from maybe the strat I sold to Brow, but only a bit!

After travelling through Vee's, explorers, sg I finally put my hand on a 90' Les Paul Custom.

Heavy piece of wood but cool souding though its really straped on your back.  :)

But I gotta agree with tom, I used to own a bkp'ed Sg 61 (nb neck and rraff brigde) and it freakin owned anything as a good compromise in comfort, sustain and playability. Plus it didnt weight a horse.

Sorry my Les paul isnt bareknuckled yet. Thinking of a holy diver bridge, always curious about this one.

After seeing that...
here is my 90 les paul custom. I don't have the pick guard fitted. I have zebra nailbombs with gold screws and poles fitted and a TP-6 bridge. Never had a problem with the weight until recently when ive been doing solid 5 hour practices with no breaks! but I think that's unusual.

Nice axe ;), how does the nbomb do in those ? Ive got in my custom explorer and finding the stock 498t a bit muddy and lacking some push in low mids, mids frequencies.

They sound good. I had rebel yells in it and the nailbombs in my LTD. I wanted to get the LPC sounding a bit different and decided to swap them over. I thought it was going to make my LP a bit bass heavy, which was my experience with using miracle man pups in there, but it actually sounds awesome.

I quite like the 498T. I don't think it is that bad. But i think they can be a bit inconsistent.

One of these is my number one - just which one changes regularly! Late last year I think I got infected with the tele/esquire GAS that was going arround and got a Fender CS '59 esquire. I love this guitar - weighs just a shade over 7lbs with a pretty chunky neck and amazingly resonant body. The thing I really discovered was that I actually like single coils quite a bit :) My poor old Tokai just wasn't getting played as a result which was annoying me as its a superb guitar in it own right. I decided that it was time to try out some mississippi queens... I wanted to keep a humbucker in the neck though and Tim recommended a mule neck. These pair up really well tonally and output wise. The MQ sounds great and the tokai has a new lease of life! Anyway - here they are:
