Beginner here, I have a Yamaha acoustic-electric. I'm working on it though! Mostly dabbling in Oasis songs and other songs with easy chord structures.

Pro bass player and still songwrite with guitar.
Me too, except that I am not playing bass for money anymore (I am done with the night gigs and having to stay up until the 4:00 am picking up the equipments after the gig). But still and acoustic guitar player (nylon strings) and a songwriter for well over 20 years.

I dabble in the acoustic arena and have been doing so for about 20 years. One day I must get around to taking a lesson. I just wish there was more than one lefty acoustics I could take off the wall and play when I walk into a guitar shop.

I had a crew for that...it was great. I miss those days, but yeah, loading/unloading gear yourself is the worst. I did that from age 16-25 before touring.

Ok, I'll bite... who did you tour with?
If this question is for me, I'll just say that unfortunately I haven't toured with anyone. I'm simply an enthusiast who has played local jazz gigs on and off for years (with some rock thrown in for kicks!).

I've always admired the craftsmanship of a well made archtop.

Semi-Pro
I've gone through a number of guitars over the years, but now I have only two, mostly for sentimental reasons: a 1999 Taylor 810 and a 2002 PRS CE22. Unfortunately, I don't play as often as I used to (or would like).

I've been playing bass in a blues-rock and for 15 years; also play piano and some guitar.

I've met quite a few tennis players that are also musicians, or.... musicians that are also tennis players.

I'm drooling over your guitars man... you've got some serious weapons there. Congrats! :) By the way, which amp/amps do you have?

If it's 3/8ths and you want to sell it, let me know ;)
It is 3/8 but it isn't for sale. First of all, it's quite beat up from years of use. Second, I'm keeping it for sentimental value. I still have the single stripe POG that my mother used during the 80's. As you can see I have a hard time letting go of some things!

I know what you mean. All those nice guitars and nothing but some all-plywood POS for us leftys.

I have played as a hobby for the past 5 years.
I mostly play led zep stuff, which i mostly find quite hard.
I play a les paul studio, fender mex 70's strat and a garrison acoustic.
If i manage to play an hour a day, its a good session. Dont always get the time though.
