Thanks marcus, I did use a 3-ply scratchplate though, so not totally Gilmour.

The other Black Springy has just had a gold scratchplate and black plastics put on it. will post pictures soon.

All the Strats are Springys - some ST-80, but mainly ST-60's - except for the blue one. It's an '86 Fender '62RI. I swapped out the Fender pups for 'E's. sorry, I just couldn't find an ST-70 R.
My last guitar is a '76 Gibson Flying V with SD zebra pups. As it's mainly for decoration, I didn't include it. Next time maybe.

Thanks, I like yours too. The winter has just passed here in the north so the garden is only just starting to wake up. During summer I can get really nice landscapes and brilliant sunsets for background. 8)

Might as add this custom order Tokai I bought used and refinished. It just has an "LS" in the pickup cavity, fret edge binding and a Brazilian fretboard.
It still needs to age another 20 years to be able to have a go at the golden-age Tokais.

Would any of you guys mind if I made an album of all these incredible guitars for my FB page?
Keep the legend alive, buy new Tokais!
