Hi Y’all, my name is Jay and I started this blog of my collection of guitars, because I dig them….
My guitar collection started around 45 years ago with my first Japanese Pearl SG Copy, followed by Yamaha SG-500 guitar, when I was heavily into prog rock, metal and rock and roll. Many moons later, the collection has grown and is scattered in various places, both in UK and some in my native Holland .
My collection is largely Japanese stuff such as Yamaha, Ibanez, Aria although I dig some USA stuff also like Peavey, Guild, Musicman, Fender, Gibson
Collecting guitars is a bit different from collecting CD’s, Coins or Stamps (..) and requires space, not good, when suffering from GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome). From time to time, for new space for “new stuff”, we thankfully, have eBay, Gumtree or FB marketplace for swapping out duplicates, although most stuff stays in the collection.
Some interesting guitars in the collection include early 1970s Yamaha SG-175s, a model made by Yamaha for Carlos Santana, some Brian May type Guilds and other unusual or artist autographed guitar models. Sadly some have flown the nest but it’s still cool to have some memorable pics here as they were once part of the collection.
