His preferred instrument is the guitar. Many evening I am entertained with technical details about guitars during which I normally just nod and try to look interested (he does the same when I talk about decorating). And every time he buys a guitar/amplifier my opinion is asked. And there is only one quality I look at: the esthetics. Since there's a big chance it will end up in my living room, it better look nice!
Since I have a love for vintage, I love all the vintage reissues or vintage inspired equipment. Thankfully my boyfriend thinks the same, so at the moment I'm pretty happy with his choice of guitars/amplifiers.
(Don't be fooled that these are the only guitars and amplifiers
he has, the rest is in his band's rehearsal room.)
Here are some other inspiring interior shots featuring guitars.
