Hello! My name is James. You can call me James. I own quite a bit of guitars: 1 Squier, 5 Epi's, 1 Fender, 1 Esteban, 1 Kramer. The Epiphones are the best. My fender is a low-end Acoustic. So is my Esteban. The Fender is a Fender CD-60 in sunburst. The Esteban is a 2004 Limited Edition Black Mist AL-100 acoustic. Today the Esteban can be found used for like 200 bucks. Way more than what it should be.

My Squier is a 2014 Affinity Strat I hope to make my own. And all my Epiphones, 2 SGs, 2 Les Pauls, and 1 ES-335.

I used to own other guitars but sold them: 2021 Squier Affinity Strat - it sucked and yeah. Another was a 2021 Squier Affinity Jazz Bass - I'm not a bassist. Nor will I ever be. I'd prefer not to get slapped.

Anyway jokes aside - my Amplifiers. I am a Marshall + Epiphone guy. I think they match up really well. I have an MG-15 Gold and an MG-15FX Gold from Marshall, and other amps I have sold: Esteban G-10 that was bought with my Esteban guitar in 2004, Marshall MG-10 Silver, and an Orange Crush 25.

I am a big fan of the Beatles, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Elvis, Tom Petty, The Heartbreakers, Tenacious D, Wings, the Rolling Stones, & Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Now onto the weird part about me that I don't know if other people experience - I name my guitars and have a hard time parting with them. Which is why I've only sold 2 guitars... EVER. My guitars names consist of -

Ivy SG (2020 Epiphone SG Classic Worn Inverness Green)

Sunny Lucy (2021 Epiphone ES-335 Standard Vintage Sunburst)

Ink Demon SG (2008 Epiphone SG Standard Ebony)

Laurie (2020 Epiphone Les Paul Special II Ebony, it is named after my girlfriend as it is her favourite.)

Strawberry Strat (2014 Squier Affinity Stratocaster Red)

P90 (2012 Epiphone Les Paul Special Model Custom Shop P90 Edition)

Black Mist (2004 Esteban AL-100 Limited Edition Black Mist)

Leo (2022 Fender CD-60 Sunburst)

I know I added a little Leo Fender tribute there but that is my only fender so yeah. Unless in the future I get a Tele, it's staying as Leo. Even then the Tele might even be called Les. If you know guitar history you know what I mean here.

The ones I've sold names:

The Gray Jazz (2021 Squier Affinity Jazz Bass)

Blueberry Strat (2021 Squier Affinity Stratocaster)

Hope you enjoyed this and yeah I'm getting tired this took me an hour to write out I don't have photos atm but I will attach them when I have the chance to.

Hello, James! Will we see a photo?
I have retrieved some photos... some are still missing though. I won't be able to take photos right now as my phone is dead and so is my camera. I will attach all existing photos here - they are all on Mediafire as this site refuses to allow me to upload them directly. Strattalk does I dunno why this site doesn't.

Welcome to Epi-Talk. A few people name their guitars. I call them by the model, unless I have more than one. Then I add the color: black Strat, other black Strat.

Welcome James. Lots of folks on gear forums have names for their guitars and/or basses. I just call all of mine hey you to avoid our getting too personal ya' know.....I mean just in case I need to let one go. 😉

There's a good bunch of people here so we hope you enjoy your time posting with us! :cheers:

I dunno why this site doesn't.
There is Media here. You can create albums.
It is setup a little not modern enough, but it is quite enough for creating photo galleries.
Strattalk and this site are powered by CMS XenForo.
