    AL family photo

    ...or, Clan of AL's, v2.0

    Been wanting to get a full family shot for awhile, and finally made it happen.
    I was short on time and had to be quick about it, but I got it

    My current stable of Albert Lee's, lined up in no particular order. Each one has a unique history and a story to tell.
    Sometimes I almost feel guilty about having so many, but on the other hand, they all have a good, loving home.
    And the philosophy of "variety is the spice of life" is certainly true. I truly play and enjoy each one from time to time. And each one inspires me differently.





    ...so, can one own too many AL's ???
    ...no...no, I don't think so....

    Feel free to point out your favorite

    What a collection! The Sky Blue one really stands out to me, though. Total stunner.

    Nice! Now I can show people this picture and say "See, I told you it was totally normal to have 4 ALs, many people have 7"

    The Dargie in the middle looks great in that light.

    I also like the blue HH on the left. Looks great!

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    Thanks folks! This collection certainly didn't happen over night, and likely isn't finished yet either.
    Mrs. Bebop has been insisting we add a proper Pink Burst to the stable.

    I've posted individual NGD threads on each of these guys in the past, but for I.D. convenience, here's a list from these pics, going left to right:

    1] AL HH trem, Turquoise Pearl, GC special (includes push/pull tone pot that splits the coils)
    2] AL HH trem, Trans Walnut, GC special (my first AL )
    3] AL SSS hard tail, Vintage Sunburst (1996 model)
    4] AL MM90 hard tail w/ piezo, PDN Dargie Delight I (one of one for this particular combination)
    5] AL HH trem, PDN Starry Night
    6] AL MM90 trem, black, GC special (Mahogany body & Rosewood neck)
    7] AL SSS trem, Sky Blue

    Out of all the different guitars Mrs. Bebop & myself have bought & sold over the last 8 years, these have become my go-to favorites... now if I could just play them better....

    wow what a great bunch of guitars!
    Im surprised you only have 2 with maple fretboards as for years people here kept moaning "I want an AL with a rosewood fretbooard!"
    Guess my favourite is the Sky blue one and also the blue HH AL
    Thanks for sharing!
    You still need an original pinkburst I guess?
