I'm not the best nor the worse guitar player from Spain.
I have played in some bands, most of them punk rock, but also like to play and sing blues, reggae, indie rock and a lot of things. I actually love playing anything and have tried many styles of music and some different instruments.

About collector guitars, I have not owned a lot of guitars nor "expensive" ones but I think I have had some rarities and I love having not the average guitar. I don't know how but I always manage to find myself with somehow slighty rare guitars, and I'm always looking for different ones. Some of them:
My first guitar was a explorer body + strat headstock black one, I dont remember the name of the brand, perhaps it was Italian. I regret letting it go but i have kept the pickups.
My third guitar was a Rickenbacker copy called Sessionrocker.
My last acquired guitar is an Ibanez ART600, which is not rare, for being recently build and sold, but it seems like it was. There is little info about them around, and in the pawn shop where i got it, they thought it was an ART120 or something because I was lucky to get it for a very low price. I think the ART600 perhaps becomes a collector piece someday, because is quite a good guitar (perhaps better than some more expensive guitars) and its construction has been discontinued.
I also have a Hondo Les Paul body from 1976, which I have to assembly and paint.
I was this near to have one Ibanez Les Paul from the 70s, but decided not to get it because the pick ups, the construction and the general estate were not wonderful, so I decided not to have it.
I also have a Thalmus bass here, which belongs to my younger brother.

Well, not a big or very rare quiver, but i try my best :lol: They are mostly cheap models that have their own charm and some of them manage to sound quite well.
I also love to experiment with rare cheap amps. My favourite amp is a 90s Marshall Valvestate, which sounds great, specially with v30s.
I also have a Sinmarc amp (a Spanish brand from the 70s) which is a collector's piece, but I have to repair and then I will decide if I sell it or keep it.
My first band used to play with a valve Semprini amp for the vocals and a 25W Torqe for the Bass. I have some parts of them.
I would love to have an old Peavey bandit 112 and so.

Sorry if my english is not the best.
