Here you will find stories about specific guitars… for example I saw a Kirk Hammett guitar at a pawn shop the other day.. I’ll fill you in soon.
My personal experiences with guitars:
This isn’t mine, nor have I played it, but DIMEBAG, dude. After I got heavy into Rhandy Rhoads and Metallica, I got really into Pantera. I was pretty devasted when he was taken from us on Dec 8th, same day as my favorite Beatle, different year.
Got these picks FROM dimebag at shows:
now, into actual guitars I owned:
Martin D-28 Dreadnought (dad said the top was refinished, with the herring bone to make it a dreadnought, it was previously a 1961 Martin -> given to him by none other than Denny Dougherty (you know the ‘California Dreamin‘ song… he’s from Mama’s and Papas). Apparently in Halifax, dad has asked Denny to pick up a Martin for him(Murray my dad) and when he returned from tour, he had (while in the Halifax Three) spent the cash in the US, so he gave dad HIS martin. It’s from the cover of the Halifax Three album. We sold the guitar in 2007 and bought dad a brand new 50″ HDTV. I made sure the history was preserved and put the Halifax three Album with the guitar in Toronto at the store we sold it through. . . I kinda wanna track it down now. We’ll see.
