Back to the Danelectro 64 for a second id I can, I just now noticed, Is that a roller bridge on the guitar???

And I must say WHAT A AMAZING COLLECTION of guitars you have!!! How many more guitars like those do you have in your collection???

I mean I only have the one guitar (for the moment) so I can't imagine what it's like to have so many great guitars to chose from?
Thanks for the compliments - My Danelectro's bridge (they make changes sometimes) is a tune-o-matic style on rollers, pretty run of the mill though.

I have a few more guitars and a bass or two. I'll have to grab them when I'm back in the studio and take pics.

Well a tune-o-matic style is pretty run of the mill but not one with rollers built-into it...

In my experience roller bridges often have come hand in hand with Bigsby units. And on this unusual Yamaha I recently sold, it had a roller bridge too even though it was a Fender-like unit (I unscrewed the trem arm and never used it). Basically an over-engineered tune-o-matic with adjustable wheels instead of notched saddles.

This weird thing, which was remarkably well-built. The only pics I have of it:

That's why that roller bridge is somewhat new to me, I've never had a guitar with a Bigsby and I haven't known anyone who had one, But what I have seen tons of are the Les Pauls, SG's, the 335's and all the want-ta-be guitars that had the regular old tune-o-matic type bridge...




Is that a banana neck headstock on that guitar? It sure looks like one?

And that is a Yamaha??? I've never seen such a beast!

I got a new guitar stand I really like a lot, Have you seen these, It a Zither Wooden Guitar Stand...
I haven’t seen that one, no. In the studio I have a padded rack that holds maybe 7 guitars, but at home they’re generally all hanging up on the wall. Because I have kids ;-).

I like it because it has a small foot print and it keeps my guitar at arms reach, After I got it I find myself playing much more often, but that could also just be the new guitar? lol

I bought that black Yamaha for about $400 new and when I sold it on eBay to my amazement it brought in just under $2,000. I didn't know at the time but it was the exact model and color of guitar that Dr. Who owned and played in the show.

On second thought, this isn't mine but worth seeing. Late 1950s Rickenbacker 345. Giant "TV" knobs and all:

That has the very same finish and type of wood body my solid body Ovation had! They both look like they were cut from the same cloth! :smile-thumb2:

I wish I still had pictures of it but they were all lost from a ransom ware attack I got some years ago... That was a bad day...
