What gear are you using

Recommended Posts

Sorry, don't have any pics. I use a sunburst 94 American Strat as my primary. I also have a natural Washburn J-6 Archtop, and a black Takamine Acoustic (forgot the exact model number and I'm too lazy to get it out right now). l also have some Classical guitar that doesn't have a model name/number anywhere visable. Got it from a friend. It's actually pretty nice if your into Classical.


I use a Fender Blues Deluxe 4X10 Amp. I also have a Mesa 4X10 Cab and a Peavey XXX Head that is collecting dust.. I could sell the head, but I just can't let go of the Mesa cab..


Not huge into effects, but I do have your basic Cry Baby, RAT Distortion Pedal, Boss DD3 Delay, Boss Flanger, and a Fender PT100 Tuner.


That's pretty much it.

I got all sorts of crap...


Main acoustic: Breedlove

Main electric: a custom Fender Telecaster with two humbuckers and a coil splitter

add'l guitars: Fender Jaguar, Gretsch 6120, Fender Tele Thinline, Fender Tele w/humbucker in neck position, Fender Nashville Tele, regular ol' Fender Tele, Fender Stratocaster, ESP strat-style with 2 single coil EMGs and an EMG humbucker in the bridge (had it custom made back when I had an endorsement with them), 2 Gretsch Jumbo Acoustics, 1929 Martin Acoustic, 1 Gretsch mini Acoustic with cowgirl graphics on it, Yamaha Dreadnought Acoustic, Danelectro U2, Fender Jazz Bass, Danelectro Longhorn Bass, 1952 National 8-string Lap Steel, 1930s Gretsch Lap Steel, late 1950s National Lap Steel...


Amps: Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, Fender Champ, Fender Bronco, Mesa Boogie Mark IV, Line 6 Vetta, Line 6 Spider, a bass amp and a couple of Peavey amps


Effects: a shitload of stuff, some immensely useful, some completely useless


I'm far from picky when it comes to gear, wouldn't consider myself an elitist or snob... if it feels good and I'm inspired when I play it, then I don't care if it cost $50 or $5000, it's good.

Well, let me look around ... as far as stuff that I'm actually using (as opposed to just piled up in a corner):


'06 Gibson Advanced Jumbo w/ LR Baggs M1A

'98 Gibson WM-00

late 80's USA Strat w/ Van Zandt Rock & Rolls & mid filter

4X10 Bassman Reissue combo

Boss TU-2 > MXR Micro Amp > Freakshow "Frosted" Brown Rabbit > Boss DD-5


There's also a 60's Alvarez 12-string acoustic around here somewhere that needs new tuners and 3 or 4 other acoustics that need some luthier's attention (the best being a '62 Harmony H-165 that sounds pretty sweet but needs a neck set) ... and a DS-1 that I need to sell. I think that's it.


Right now I'm just doing Wednesday jams but maybe some shows later if we can tighten up some songs. We also need a bass player :rolleyes I'm mostly an acoustic fingerstyle/songwriter type guy but trading off leads sure is fun ...

Have to make some changes/updates:


'07 black gibson SG standard


'93 fender standard strat with vintage noiseless (wired in series, but will be changing back to 5 way parallel)




'69 yamaha fg18


effects (in this order)


home-made germanium treble booster


crybaby wah wah


mxr evh phase 90


ibanez tube screamer (modded to ts808 specs, replaced chip with jrc 4558, revoiced tone cap from .22 to .1uf, and changed one of the clipping diodes to an led)


fulltone OCD overdrive


roger mayer voodoo vibe


line 6 delay modeler




'99 vox ac30 (normal channel, retubed with j/j power and tung-sol pre-amp)


everything sounds VERY pretty right now. i only use the overdrive pedals if i need a distorted/lead sound that is beyond the half-way breakup of the vox and treble booster...

Actually Rufer, I live right near you have lotsa songs. HINT HINT


Seriously though dude, do you play around town? I may know you and not know it, that'd be pretty funny.


Really, if you've got some things you'd like to record I could definitely be into it. Where in MD are you? I haven't played anywhere noteworthy in a long while.

This is my first post:


Fender MIA Strat Deluxe HSS (changed pickguard to tort from white & swapped out locking bridge to reg)


Talyor 110 with a LR Baggs M1 active installed


Gibson SG bass Re-Issue with a Hipshot Supertone bass bridge (The bridge makes a big difference!)


Lakland Skyline deluxe 44-02 with Bartolini PU's & Pre


Line6 Pod X3 (using an audio interface with Cakewalk Sonar 7 Producer, BFD 1.5, Reason 4) might get another interface.


PC is Core 2 Duo 2.4, 500 gig HD and 2 gigs of RAM & MS Windows Media Center (will change to XP pro soon and add another HD)


I play part time in a cover / jam band with some co-workers, but use my gear mostly for home recordings.
