Two classical guitars : one Hofner (student model) and an Alvarez Yairi cutaway.

My Dad bought me a new guitar for Christmas! It's a Hofner Contemporary Series. (Sunburst) It's so pretty :P

This is my first guitar, a Yamaha EG112.  This is just a stock picture; mine is now covered in stickers!  I got it when I was 14.

I used to be obsessed with Good Charlotte as a teen, so I got the Ernie Ball Benji Madden Signature guitar as a present.

I also have a Tanglewood electro-acoustic, which is like this picture, except a lovely deep blue colour.

I also got a bass when I was 15, a Yamaha RBX170.  This accompanied me all over the place when I was in my last band!

My fave guitar I own is my Ibanez Artcore.  I bought it when I went to NYC when I was about 15.  I went into a guitar store called Manny's Music, where loads of Rock & Roll guitarists had come in over the years, signed for their purchases and had their signatures put up on the wall.  It was a great day.

Moving away from guitars, I've also got an Alesis electric drum kit.  I did have an acoustic kit when I first started playing at the age of 16, but the neighbours complained so much, I was forced to trade it for an electric.  *Sniff*

And finally, I have an M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 MIDI keyboard, which unfortunately is the only thing resembling a proper piano I have.  I had a beautiful upright piano from age 7 right up until a few weeks ago, but unfortunately my mother moved house and they couldn't get it out, so the new owners get it for free.  Bad times.

Hehehehe thank you!  I was worse for buying/receiving guitars when I was younger.  I haven't actually bought an instrument since I was about 15.  I guess I just love my Ibanez so much, I don't have any desire to have any more guitars.  Although I'd LOVE to have a go on a Rickenbacker 12 string...  you know...  just for the whole GEORGENESS of it.  :D

Oh. I forgot. I also have a synthesizer gathering dust (not really, it is still in its box)…

Wow, so many people play/own guitars! Guess that shouldn't be surprising considering this is a Beatles site  :)

In my house there are:
Baldwin Piano
Conn bb trumpet
2 acoustic guitars (One's my dad's, the other a little one which is mine. Just learning how to play :P )

Today I bought a T-Bone Retrotube MK I valve condenser mic from one of my college tutors who's downsizing his home studio.  It's pretty neat!  Here's a picture of it.  I like its purposely "vintage" bottle shape:  http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/may06/images/tboneretrotube.l.jpg

In reference to my last post...  I've just come to use this mic, and a flatmate who borrowed it has lost part of it, so now it doesn't screw onto any mic stand...  I'm so fecking annoyed.  I've been waiting for over a month to record the songs I've been writing, but technology has just been constantly going wrong.  Now when I finally get my interface fixed, I can't use my mic, so now can't record my guitar.  I'm absolutely FED UP.

Sorry to TRIPLE post, but no one ever replies here.  :P
I just bought myself some tabla!  They're gorgeous dark brown with a nice, flowing interpretation of a bird on the tops.  I think I watched "Concert For Bangladesh" a bit to intensely lastnight.  ;D
I can't wait to use them.

And i also have 3 or 4 pianos and some harmonicas ^^

Yes love, Concert For Bangladesh is on DVD!  They brought it out in 2005.  You can buy it on Amazon and places like that.  ;)
I do love that they bothered to put things like that on DVD so that it's accessible for younger people who weren't around to see it happen.  I love Ravi Shankar and Billy Preston's performances especially.  Bob Dylan's pretty cool too.
Anyway, back to the topic!   :-X

That's a bummer about the mic Jai. Have you contacted the manufacturer about a spare part at all? Get your flatmate on it or get the gaffer tape out! ;)

I got a B.C. Rich ASM 1 Electric Guitar on Memorial Day, since the store was having this big sale on instruments. It's my first electric guitar, and I'm quite happy with it! (I just need to somehow get an amp, so I can hear how it really sounds  :P )
I also have an acoustic guitar, but I don't know much about it. I just stole it from my older sister because she never played it at all, and I just began teaching myself.
Oh, and I have a ukulele too.  :)

Ah no worries now AAB, I found the missing part!  And the mic works a bloody treat, just like I knew it would.  It's by no means the best out there, but by god does it knock the socks of anything I've produced before.  ;D
