If you’ve been reading the articles in this series, you’ll know I’m looking at guitars that have something unique—when compared to my own current collection’s feature set. Well, today’s guitar ticks more boxes than any previous guitar in this series.I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a guitar this unique.
The first time I did this 52 guitars thing, I had a Telecaster in the list that was a Jim Root signature model. Later on when I did the 52 amplifiers series, I had a Jim Root signature model amplifier. Now I’m not the world’s great Slipknot or Stone Sour fan, but I will say this … Jim Root knows good gear.
That’s quite the article title isn’t it?! Seems fair, the A1.6C Carbon Matte Black by Solar Guitars is quite an awesome looking guitar. This guitar ticks more boxes than most when it comes to the checklist of features I don’t currently have in a guitar.
Yesterday the butterflies were plentiful and active. Today there are fewer butterflies and they’re less active. This allowed for a closer shot than yesterday’s photographs. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
I do not know what type of bush grows this flower, but it is growing in my yard. I don’t recall planting it, so it may be a ‘weed’ or something bird brought in. Still, it’s not unattractive when it flowers. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
It’s been a while since I pulled the camera out of the bag and today there were dozens of butterflies in the back yard. It was a beautiful sight to see while being confined to my own yard like most of the world currently. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
Here’s a quick recap for those who may be new to this site and/or new to this series. I love guitars—I may have a few of my own already—and I love looking into guitars that I don’t own, but would love to own. Back in 2013 I did my first series of 52 Guitars—52 different guitars by 52 different guitar manufacturers—and by that year’s end I’d bought one of the guitars in my wish list.
This year I’m revisiting the series concept and if all goes to plan, I may end up buying a new guitar from this year’s wish list. Perhaps it would be this week’s entry, the DC Coupe Ace MB by Prestige Guitars.
