Ligotti's Guitars

Does anyone know if or where Ligotti ever discussed his guitars? I don't see him as a traditionalist (Gibsons, Fenders) but I'm betting he's had at least one Fender. I play a 335ES, a Gibson J-45 and a cheap (seventeen hundred bucks) DCPA4 Martin. I may buy a Strat or PRS soon. I'm leaning toward an American Standard Strat.
This would be a great subject for a mini-interview...at least for some axe fanatics.

And here's the Master with lessons for the beginner:

I bet it's a Gestalt model, Symbolique. The whole is greater...

Re: Ligotti's Guitars

These Chinese 'Martins' are incredible. Good build, tone, playability, looks...and 500 bucks as opposed to 4500. Wonderful.

If you have qualms about trademark infringement just request the Martin name removed and replaced with your own. Then it's as above board as the thousands of other Martin imitations sold legally. Not that they can compare to these.
Of course there's always risk. There are duds. But many are stunning in appearance and tone. And price.

Re: Ligotti's Guitars

Druidic, are you trying to get TL, me and other GAS lovers in trouble with their bank managers/other co-spouse, et al, by shilling lusty gear in front of our noses?

It'd be Shame on You. But only if we get caught out ;)

If you've got over 30 guitar pedals, the missus never knows if I get a new one. Too many colours and types for her to memorise now, only took a few decades... a guitar though... much harder to slip into the house.

Pretty sure I read up on TL's guitar habits somewhere as well but can't remember squat.

In trouble? Perish the thought!

I'd sell my soul for that plectrum but they want money instead.

Re: Ligotti's Guitars

Ever since coming to the USA. THIS is what I dreamed of. An attic, a barn, a mysterious pawn shop full of books and 1 guitar in its case propping up something else... So far no luck. Shoulda bought cars! Urg... what a gem. Damn the internet and it's fiscal awareness.

Re: Ligotti's Guitars

I almost bought an old Mercedes once for restoration and found what looked like a small child's coffin in the trunk. I decided it wasn't the car for me.

Yeah, good call, Mandolins are wannabe guitars.
