I was playing a show one night and a guy put his beer on my 1971 Marshall JMP50 and I just about smacked him

Considering the beer that would probably be a better country and western set up. For the blues I think a bottle of cheap Old Crow would sound better!

Beautiful.....all 20 lbs of it

I borrowed my lead guitarist's "back-up" Studio (mid-80s vintage if I remember right) for a gig once.....holy hell my shoulder barely survived the first set. Going from my Eagle to a Log without getting your shoulder used to it first is painful.

My Peavey has survived that one, the first time it just blew a fuse the second time I just poured it out and with it on standby. That set of tubes made it about 9 more years. lol

IIRC correctly, that was the unit Pat Thrall used to create the string section sounds on Pat Travers Live! Go for What You Know.

Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it?

Can't comment on the rig that Thrall used but suffice it to say that the RE201 & 301 have been used in sooooo many studios and live shows. I like what Brian Setzer does with his. Your gonna hate me, I paid $110 for this one. It came from one of those storage unit auctions, just like you see on the boobtube. AND there was some other treasures as well

Got some new pedals after watching a billion videos and talking to friends who play out a bit.

First one....TC Electronics Flashback Delay...so nice...



Next up...a Joyo Ultimate Drive (I can't find my Tubescreamer) My buddy has been buying pedals from www.pedaltrader.com for a while now and swearing their some of the best pedals he's ever bought...and they're around $40!

I was just watching antiques roadshow and they valued a 1944 Martin D-28 at 35,000 to 45,000 dollars. What made me laugh was the way the strings were all messed up, strung around the outside of the tuning posts. While I would treasure a 1944 D-28 beyond almost anything, I was reminded of the competence of my Taylor, the funny twist in the neck notwithstanding. At least the flaws suddenly looked much smaller.

very nice! Have built a tube few amps myself and really enjoy it, very satisfying once it works and sounds right. Did the one below from scratch and have reworked it so many times it is falling apart (it was a Gibson GA40 in this incarnation IIRC), have built others from junk amps and converted old PA's to guitar. AX84.com is a great resource for DIY amp building...

(and for anyone considering it there are some serious safety concerns, tube amps can have 400+ volts inside which can be lethal...do some reading on safe practices before fooling with them)

Had me one of these back in the '60s. Ernie Ball was one of my teachers



I wouldn't mind having another one, but they are almost as expensive as a pedal steel or a good used motorcycle.

What a cool thread

Just found this, and since it's kind of a crappy day (tax man day in Canada, and we're dealing with THIS)

this is just what I need to cheer me up a bit.

(I should probably be attending the 12 step group for GAS sufferers, but this is more fun)

I'm pretty folky, but here is my electric rig of many years - Ernie Ball Silhouette (1990) and 2X10 Fender Concert (about 1980).


I should get rid of the amp - it weighs a ton - but I love the sound.

And my go-to acoustic. Collings D1A. This has been my dream guitar for years and I finally sold enough other gear to buy one. It is amazing!



I feel better already - back to the tax return!
