There's been some talk about 'guitar porn' on the forum on several occasions. If anyone was ever wondering what was meant by that: see pics in postings above :roll:
If I would start a 'guitar Playboy magazine', I'd hire you to work for me Trevor. Magnificent! :love:

Hey Frenchy: How big a hole have you drop filled with super glue. Would a 1/4 inch round hole be too big in circumference. How much can be dropped in at one time.I have several cigarette burns on a FS1000 I bought and have yet to pick up. I might be able to scratch down and remove the ugly black mark but what to fill it with. It is clear natural wood finish.It look like the end of the cig fell off the cig...not like the cig was allowed to burn right on the surface for a while. I have used laquer and fingernail polish before on other guitars with mixed results...but not crazy glue. What's your opinion

Thanks Mijit, Glad you like her.
That beautiful VS600 is no longer in my possession sadly.
Towards the end of last year, In an effort to keep my ever growing collection of Mats manageable, I sold off around 10 or so.
Unfortunately that was one of them. :bawl:

Hey Mijit,
Couldn't possibly Take it down to 3-5.
Maybe 10 inc Bass's.
They are all so diverse.
What criteria for top are you looking for.
Pure playability ?
Rarest/most cottectable ?
Most innovative?
All said, there are however standouts.
Once again though, many would sit side by side in the rankings.

Hi Trevor: Ya, now you put it that way it was a stupid question. I will address just guitars, not Basses.
1) What are your choices of most beautiful and best workmanship. Pick 3
2) Most collectable. Pick 3
3) Rarest Pick 3
4) Most playable for Blues and rock Pick 3

Any guitar can be in all/a few of the categories if you want...as they often do when descibing a guitar. This is difficult to be sure and I only want your view...others can give their own list if they choose....thnx...jj
