    I have to say those cabinets fitted with an assortment of vintage celestion, greenbacks, creambacks, greybacks and blackbacks truly deliver the sonic goods.

    I hope no one minds a couple of closeups:

    that's cool, really nice.
    A strat in there wouldn't hurt.
    I haven't heard this gear, but there is some serious tone sitting there, there has to be, it's too sweet.

    very nice however why do the headstocks on the 1st & last guitars look so much bigger than the rest? is it just the camera angle?

    No doubt the sound of Rock but also his look. Prety nice colection.

    Thank you all for the very nice comments. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

    Strats are great too but they wouldn’t fit in the picture

    Lol, the stands have different degrees of tilt so yes the camera angle creates an optic illusion.

    Just picked up a couple of 2012 Les Pauls- A 'Desert-Burst' Standard, & a Cherry Sunburst Traditional. Both have the nice (AA?) tiger-stripe maple tops & gloss finishes on the sides/back.

    Wasn't really looking to purchase both, but the prices were right, & I got to trade off a Blackstar HT60 2x12 combo I had received in partial trade (NICE amp, but I already have plenty of Marshalls).

    Bought some Gotoh 'Kluson-style' machine heads & aged nickel conversion bushings from StewMac to replace the stock tuners for classic looks/modern stability.

    These are to replace (2) Les Paul Traditionals I sold at graduation time to pay off my tuition. Told myself I would get another when I started my new job. These are superior to the ones I sold, & were cheaper than what I had paid before.

    I keep wondering when Gibson and Marshall will collaborate on something. Gibson said they were in to collaborating with other companies and I can't think of a better one than Marshall.
    Oh, and don't bring up the Spinal Tap Jackson/Marshall full stack guitar :)
