Jays Guitars


Here is my (current) guitar collection, as I have owned/purchase/traded well over 100 different guitars. No closet classics here, all are played and enjoyed as I feel they should be. Hope you all enjoy.

No acoustic guitar shown as I recently sold mine and I am in process of getting another.

1 2001 Gibson Les Paul Gary Moore, Lemonburst
2 1991 Gibson Les Paul 1960 Classic Plus, Transparent Red with a great AA flame top but does not show well in this pic.

This is my favorite and has the most value to me as it was purchased for me by my wife shortly after we first met, she surprised me with it. She also allows me to have these guitars which I call my kids, (we have no children). What a woman huh?
