    God Bless you Ron Whitfield

    Yes, I have my eyes on a Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty and an Ibanez 7 string guitar.....

    But yes, I need to get my wife some diamond jewelry before I can even consider asking her if I can get one or two or three more guitars

    OK, Cran...we're all witnesses! Hold out for the recently found, 478 carat diamond that was on the news last night!

    I own several guitars, to the horror of my wife.

    • American Stratocaster, approx. 1991, black and white, rosewood fingerboard.
    • Ibanez Roadstar II, Strat-type, late-'80s, cream body, natural fingerboard.
    • Hofner 3/4 acoustic, 1960s, handmade in Germany. Same company that made McCartney's violin-shaped Beatle bass.
    • Hofner 500-1 "Beatle Bass" 1973
    • Few more assorted acoustic and electric guitars
    • 7 ukulele, 3 Kamaka; 1 Applause; 1 Lanikai; 1 handmade 6-string tenor; 1 Oscar Schmidt
    • Forgot... dozen or two harmonicas, including a complete set with all the keys in a box. Prefer Hohner Golden Melody


    I just sold two of my electrics; one Lincoln made in Japan Les Paul copy; one 3/4 size mini Strat copy.

    Can I play? Not so much. I do make excellent noise, however!
    Make trouble, have fun, do good stuffs.

    Come on, let's start seeing some photos!!! Here was my collection about a year ago:



    But there's been two additions since then -- a five-string fretless bass and another ukulele (pineapple shaped body and a honu hole).
    And to answer the original question, I started piano as a keiki and played trumpet through high school and college. Played guitar since pre-teen years. (Matter of fact, that nylong 6-string on the wall to the left in the above? It's a Ramirez flamenco (wider neck) and I bought it around 1964 or so for about $800. Worth a helluva lot more now.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    I also have a half-dozen guitar hangers adorning the wall in my study, as well as another half-dozen guitar stands. Then, there are the twenty amps, ten of them various Fender tube models (all working).

    Currently, I play `ukulele and bass guitar for hula dancers and in several Hawaiian-music bands in the Seattle area. Over the years, I've also played keyboards, drums, mandolin and flute. At present, I have three `ukulele: a tenor Fluke, a six-string tenor Mele, and an electric Risa tenor uke-stick), but just one bass guitar (having sold one last year). I also have a number of old synths, a Fender Rhodes, a flute, a mandolin and a bouzouki.
