    I don't have a digital camera, but google is cool too.

    My Yanagisawa A991 Alto Saxophone - Black Lacquer. This is my baby, and I would die if anything happened to it.

    ESP LTD Viper 110 I think? It was really cheap because I'm just learning

    I am still learning, 33 years later! ;) Here's my Viper (LTD 301, dual EMG-HZs)

    I put the strap button on the horn so it would balance more like a strat/tele. Some of the ESP/LTD 200 Viper series guitars had the button on the horn, but then moved it to the back of the guitar where all the rest of the Vipers have theirs.

    I just checked out the Maton Australia site. That's a really cool guitar.

    And now, from the electronic side of things, here are a few of my instruments.

    First, the Roland XP-10, my main controller:

    The Yamaha AN-200, a "virtual analog" desktop module:
    [​IMG]

    And the Roland JV-880, a rack-mount synth module.

    The AN-200 and JV-880 don't see much action anymore, though; the majority of my sound comes from software synthesizers nowadays. I control them with the XP-10 and a M-Audio O2 USB/MIDI controller.

    I picked up one of these a while ago, and I love it! I really love the weighted keys compared to the previous keyboard I had.

    I agree, guitars are not musical, they are just noise making implements for idiots. Either that, or all musical instruments should be renamed "guitar" to simply things a bit.:p

    very, very nice

    does it have touch sensitive keys?

    i always wanted something like that and currently i have a casio keyboard with full sized keys but no touch sensitivity but it can still do a lot

    I don't care, show me the goods ;)

    My two are the Ibanez artcore hollowbody AS-73, ultra low budget but nice, and the esp/ltd I posted above.

    My keyboard is a Casio CZ-1000, but an older model I can't find a picture of but my mom has it now and lost it a few years back. What's weird is how fast the keyboard market changes, so the CZ-1000 is considered a "vintage" synth. Mine does not have MIDI and must be very vintage.

    keyboard, but newer model, below:

    This is my 1976 Fender Bass. This lasted me through my last band that toured the US several times. I'm still using it for my current band (which is just a studio band for now).

    I love this bass and will never sell it. By the way, everything on it is original except for the pick guard (and strings obviously).

    Thanks. Yes, it does have touch-sensitive and weighted keys. Roland uses an actual physical hammer instead of springs for its action. The current model equivalent is the RD-300 GX.

    wow, thanks...my wife painted it

    we usually paint skateboards and clothing as that's what we do for work but thought a guitar would be fun in the same motif
