Trowar Report: Guitar Porn For Now

I returned from the Land of Lebowski (Los Angeles) yesterday evening.  I was out there rehearsing with Trowar for upcoming gigs.  We are very, very pumped at the progress we're making.  I will type a longer report soon; but for now, enjoy this guitar and bass porn from Guitar Center and Time Warp Guitars, both of Hollywood, California.


I can't stop thinking about the non-reverse body Gibson
Thunderbird (the red one, gringo).  What. A. Beauty!

The slot head on this Gibson EB-0 bass is pretty
rare.  In fact, I don't think I've ever seen one in
person until now.

You might know that I'm a total sucker for patina.
The patina on this Fender Precision bass is so
bad ass that I can overlook the white pick up
covers (which I normally loathe).

Ampeg Dan Armstrong bass.  I love this bass.  I fought
the temptation to plug it in. Why tempt myself with
something I can't afford?

A Gibson and an Ampeg.  I think the reason the Gibson
is so cheap is that it doesn't have all original parts (note
the tuning pegs for example).  EDIT:  Okay, I just looked
at a full sized version of this photo. The Gibson isn't
$499.  It's $1499.  That's about right.

Ampeg Baby Bass.  I played this for a moment.  Want.
Very badly.

A Rickenbacker Light Show guitar - another lovely that
I've only ever seen in books.  For those who might not know:
this guitar has lights mounted on the inside that pulsate
and blink through the finish.

Two electric sitars.  Would love to hear someone play
these sukkas.


A beat up (we'll call it "patina" again) Gibson SG.  One
of my favorites in the vintage room, and that's saying
something.

This is what a bass should look like.  Gah I love this one
too!

A 1917 Gibson harp guitar.  I couldn't believe
the great condition of this instrument!


Damn kids and their Legos/super glue.
