Another 52 Guitars, week 15—Lionheart Guitars Balkatora Eye of Kala IV

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.

Let’s take a look at the Balkatora-Eye of Kala IV by Lionheart Guitars.

Another 52 Guitars, week 14—Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster v4

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.

Jim Root’s new Fender Jazzmaster v4 is no exception. Matter of a fact, I think it’s his best signature model yet. This guitar looks amazing.

Static butterfly

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.

Garden flower

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.

Lichen

A close-up photograph of some lichen growing on a small tree in my yard. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Blue butterfly

The third decent photograph I captured today in my back yard—thank you social distancing and isolation?!—while the butterflies enjoyed the flowers and sunlight. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Orange butterfly

The second of three decent photographs captured today in my own backyard. Not being a butterfly/moth expert, I’m currently assuming this is a butterfly. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Trio of butterflies

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.

Another 52 Guitars, week 12—Prestige Guitars DC Coupe Ace MB

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.
