Premier Collector #3: Vintage Fender Amps and Guitars

July 22, 2008


Lorne Sheaves has only been collecting guitars for the past 4-5 years, and already has an impressive stash. Beginning with the black 1987 American Stratocaster -- a Christmas present from his parents -- the collection grew exponentially.

Says Lorne, "I got all this gear over time with a very understanding wife, but it does drive her crazy when I play it too loud."

To have your collection featured as a Premier Collector, send pictures and descriptions to rebecca@premierguitar.com.
