At the moment, I've got a couple of guitars and am trying to sort out where to go next.

Epiphone Flying V Bass
It is pure awesome to play on stage, it gives you such a presence, and to top it off it's nice and small (and light) yet is metal as ****. Bought it off eBay, it had a few electrical problems which were shortly fixed by taking it apart with the aid of my luthier friend and retouching all the wiring.
Looks like this:


Squier P-Bass
Not as great to play as the Fender, but at a minute fraction of the price (I managed to nab the last one in the shop as they were closing down, as luck would have it it's in sunburst too!) it's well worth it. This is a real workhorse of a bass, as it's always being practised on.
Looks like this:


Fender Sonoran (SCE) Electro-Acoustic
My baby, this is my favourite guitar I have ever owned. It's gorgeous to play, and looks brilliant as well. Needs a bit of a set-up at the minute because for some reason my room is subject to wild swings in humidity which has affected the strings and apparently the neck (the truss rod just needs a little tighten, which I can probably do myself). The fact that it's an electro-acoustic means that I can amp it up, too, which is always fun.
Looks like this:


My fourth guitar is in the attic back home - it's a 12-string acoustic which I've not played in years because it's not got enough strings (my brother kept stealing them for his own guitar). Needs a complete restring and set up and I can't be bothered to pay for that right now. One day I'll do it and rejoice because 12-strings are inherently awesome.

It's a lovely looking guitar, and apparently very nice to play. It's a guitar which is crying out for the lightest action in the world, given the shallow heel and double cutaway. I assume you're a lead guitarist?

My only worry would be that the P-90 is a single coil pickup and you might find that to start picking up a 60Hz hum depending on where you play. But that's nitpicking, not everyone likes humbuckers either.

Meh, that site's American.

I've got a good arrangement with the local music store. I find a price for something online, they sell it to me for that. Only, because I'm a member of the Uni's Rocksoc, I get a 10% discount.

And I don't even have to pay delivery.

I've been playing guitar for three years, but all I've got now is the generic metallic blue Fender Strat. I do however have an awesome amp. The Roland Cube 60. The amp has effects like phaser and chorus. It's also got delay, reverb, etc. It's got lotsa awesome different types of distortion, and it sounds pretty awesome. You could get a lot of different sounds out of it.

Yeah, I have an upright piano, my dad has a couple of guitars (don't really know anything about those though...one is accoustic and the other one is electric) and an old violin.

I have a Mac computer with Logic Express installed. I have maybe over 1000 software instruments with thousands more loops to acompany it. I pretty much have my own professional music studio and orchestra. :P ;D
