...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.... :p

Feel free to point out your favorite ;)

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!

I think you have to many ALMM90s. You should let me take that black one off of your hands :D

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. :p

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 :D)
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!
I´m surprised you only have 2 with maple fretboards as for years people here kept moaning "I want an AL with a rosewood fretbooard!" :D
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?

That one on the far left is killer! I would almost trade one of my Shurs for that.
