    Hammertone should still be allowed to use that Breuer chair.
    His pic makes me rethink the term "couch archtop" ... there was a thread some months ago.

    I associate jazz music with human emotions, mainly joie de vivre - wish you galore!

    My two for tonight: on the right, a guitar by Ammon Meinel, luthier from East Germany. On the left... well, I’ve got no idea. All I know it’s also from East Germany.

    No, I’m not German.

    At least 2 of your 3 are cutaways. That saves some space.

    The latest configuration of the herd, sans couch. The PartsCaster is about to get a new Lollar Charlie Christian neck p/u installed and a tortoise pick guard.

    Thanks for the thread and sharing pics. Some quite fine instruments in there!

    The Current Herd - couch shot-coucherd1-jpg

    Most of the herd earlier this year. Other than an ES125, not many trad jazz boxes, although I've played jazz on the MIJ Tele and the FGN ES335 type. There's a few Japanese "bizarre" guitars mixed in, kinda got a thing for 'em.

    Since then, been using a stock new Ibanez AKJV95 for most jazz jammin'.

    She was a feral mutt kitten living out of a fish & chips garbage dumpster, that we "rescued." She's now in her early 20's.

    It was a special order from a shop in China actually (it's actually hand built and I received pictures of it throughout the building process). I didn't want to pay thousands and thousands for an instrument I wasn't sure would get played much. Overall, I'm extremely surprised by the overall build, quality, and sound of the instrument. I mainly use it for Clasical and some Bluegrass stuff, so I don't play it that often, but regardless, it's still a beautiful instrument.

    I generally don't take couch pics as my cat doesn't like being disturbed, also the wall with hangers works better. Now if someone starts a wall thread...

    Interestingly enough, my couch shot was 3 naturals and 2 bursts.

    But I didnt include all of my guitars...if I had, there'd be 3 more bursts and 2 more naturals..

    And a purple Danelectro

    They're the Schallers with the 2 adjustment screws, don't know the model. They sound great, maybe a little dark for some, but hey, the amp has a treble control

    It's a maple top. Reacts more like a laminate guitar plugged in, thunks a bit, very feedback resistant. Unplugged it has a pleasant tone for practicing, but it's no "acoustic" guitar.
