To some people, crown jewels represent jewels, DUH!
Well to me, they represent my guitars.

We have here six of the bunch.

Top row
Left is a Takamine EF-380R Acoustic-Electric.
Behind is a Raven Les Paul bought 36 years ago.
Right is a Jay Turser Resonator (dobro).

Bottom row
Left is a Hohner St Special S.
Front is a Godin Solidac.
Right is a Epiphone Les Paul.

Yep, those are MY jewels :-).

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).
Any problem you can't solve with a good guitar, is either, unsolvable or isn't a problem.

The guitar is a small orchestra. It is polyphonic. Every string is a different color, a different voice.
Among God's creatures two, the dog and the guitar, have taken all the sizes and all the shapes, in order not be separated from the man.
-- Andre Segovia

Passing the vodka bottle. And playing the guitar (on how he keeps fit).
-- Keith Richards

Hi Pierre - I like the Christmas-Tree style of the presentation and another good interpretation of the theme. A pretty good collection of instruments you have there!

Great collection of guitars Pierre. Your jewels!
Nicely presented to us, very well set out and displayed.

Hi Pierre

Pretty stunning collection there my friend. I am very impressed with your jewels. Neat capture nice and sharp with good lighting, neat notes too.

TFS and for joining in the fun with the theme

Kind regards Smurfie

I guess the guitars would have to be your jewels Pierre. Well composed in that shape, good colour and detail. You left a patch of the original colour just near the Takamine but I will forgive you. Sandy has a 12 string Takamine, she once was like you and had quite a collection. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘A hand held macro’

Hi Pierre,

Happy to have friend who love guitars . . since I love to hear guitar . .
Lovely presentation of your guitars . . and I like the way you compose it with dark BG .. .

Je constate Pierre que tu as toujours tes guitares...pret à repartir :)
Très belle présentation qui représente de beaux souvenirs.

Bonsoir Pierre: )
Wow ! Je ne te savais pas 'gratteux' à ce point ! Super :o) Excellent montage, l'idée du positionnement est très jolie, comme un tourniquet, bravo. D'après la note tu en as d'autres ? Sacré musicien le Pierre, dommage on n'entend rien ;o)
:) demain

Piet welldone you 'Rockin Billy ' :-)

Good collection - too many to play at the same time. An uncle of mine had a double-neck guitar I used to amuse myself with as a child. Would love to know how to play, well, my first-born does.....

Salut Pierre,
Belle collection, de quoi être fier! Tu es chanceux de jouer de la guitare,c'est le seul instrument auquel j'ai de la difficulté :(
Merci de partager.

Wonderful Pierre! Great photo from a friend, love it since I am a wanna-be guitarist that has no rhythm!!! Would like to hear you play sometime! Have you ever heard the Dana Fuchs Band, I like them pretty well. She sounds like a cross between Janice Joplin & Etta James. She is on the net & you can hear some of her music. :} Don

Good detail and color here. I like the black bg. Wonderfully presented TFS

Hello Pierre,nice to visit you.
I like this pic very much,specially the dark deep being good in contrast with the instruments.
Thanks for share this interesting topic.
Regards and good luck :)

Salut Pierre

Je te souhaite une bonne année. Tu as une très belle collection de guitares. Elles sont très bien présentées ici.
Ça doit être compliqué de partager ton temps entre tes 2 passions (musique et photographie).

Salutations, Sylvain

Really nice shot, Pierre....... you play 'm all, don't you? I just started a couple of years ago playing classical spanish guitar....... although I'll probably never play in public I love playing my guitar almost dayly again!
Enjoy the music every day in 2008!

Bravo ! Bravo pour cette netteté, une vraie belle qualité de photographie. J'aime bien en plus la présentation de ces instruments.

My sons would like this composition. Two of them (my stepsons) are in a rock band, and my son used to play. Very nice pic!
