Anyone ever pick up any Beatle or Beatle-related instruments? I've got the Epiphone EJ-160CE John Lennon signature acoustic/electric guitar. It's the best acoustic I've ever played. I've had it for about three years now. I love it!

I'd love to get the Casino. That's my next electric guitar for sure! I played the Icon Series Hofner B-Bass at Guitar Center a few months back. It was the easiest bass I've jammed on. I'd love to buy it. It's a little less than $400 too, so I'm sure that at some point soon I'll be getting it.

I had a Hofner that was (recently) signed by Paul.

Not yet, but Ludwig Liverpool 4 kit, will be mine soon. It's beautiful, you really do have to see it. It's based of a Ringo kit.

Expensive yes, but I need to start getting serious, if I want to go anywhere with drumming.

Gahh! Double post, sorry. a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Yep, it's suuuper nice. I swear there's a silent alarm in his room that's connected wirelessly to his brain, and it goes off when I get near that thing. Whenever I get even three feet away from it, he yells "Don't touch Arthur, Kitzia!"

I named my Crimson Les Paul "Lucy". Arthur's not a bad name.

Speaking of Les Paul's named Lucy - what other kind of instruments non-Beatle related do you guys have?

I've got a ton of different mics and a ton of different stuff recording wise. My actual instruments however include a Fender Telecaster (2005), Fender Stratocaster (1997), Fender Jazz Bass (1996), Epiphone DR-212 12 string acoustic (2009), and of course my Lennon signature Epiphone acoustic (2007). I've also got a ton of different amps and other what-nots, including a early '90's TKO drum kit, and a casio keyboard. Cool! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

I can see from here that your father is a genius...

Talking about this guitar: I read in wikipedia that this 12-stringed beauty is different from your regular 12-string guitars. Can somebody explain me in what way is different?

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition.

When I bought my Rickenbacker someone in the pub asked me what it was called, and quick as a flash I said: "Christina... because she's beautiful". Christina Aguilera was at number one with Beautiful at the time. I don't even like the song, but Christina it is.

BTW Kitzia, your Facebook link doesn't work. You've got a redundant facebook.com/ in the URL which breaks the link. And I'm very jealous of your dad!

In the web address just delete one of the "facebook.com/" urls and it should work. I can post it here but I think I need AFT's permission.

I recently bought George Harrison 's old Moog, the one used on "Abbey Road " and "Electronic Sound", and was signed by all four Beatles, and had my manservant fly to England to see it delivered safely back to me. Also I recently won the lottery! Also, I'm a terrific liar.

Seriously, though, my actual guitar is some kinda Japanese (?) brand called Alcivar, and it is kinda similar to a Casino (or a Gibson ES335), but I bought it years before I even knew what guitars the Beatles usually used. I'd never buy any brand of instrument simply because so-and-so used it. If I played bass, I'd love to own a Rickenbacker, but only because I love the way they sound, not because Paul used one. 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I agree buying an instrument, because someone used it is kind of crazy. With that said I'll be getting a Ludwig Liverpool 4 kit or "The Ringo Kit", and a bass based on one used by John Paul Jones. a-hard-days-night-george-5

I've got a question: Why do people name their instruments? I don't imply that's bad, just curious.

 

?And to keep on topic another question. Did the Beatles give a name to their instruments?
