Re: Forum members guitar collection and playing rigs

Thanks, sure i'd appreciate the info. FWIW I did take lessons including music theory for a year, have a few dvds never watched, subscribe to many instruction/lesson emails/facebook, I just didn't put any time in to it. Trying to figure a way to make it a priority. I know it would be bring me a lot of pleasure....but also bring gear desire issues lol. I have actually been picking them up lately though.

I don't want to go too off topic, this is a great thread.

So, I forgot to mention I also own Eric Czar's ATK 305 "black b*&ch" bass. Its currently in his care right now. One of these days want to learn to play bass too.

And I have a Godin Radiator electric

You have THAT guitar!?!! OK so as useless as this might sound, given the others that want it,  I'd like to throw my hat into the ring if it ever goes up for sale. All you need now Jane is a slide. It doesn't matter what you sound like when you are learning. Just follow the Sonny Landreth philosophy and 'electrify the air'.

I'll play:

Electrics:

Fender American Original 60s Stratocaster, all stock except pickguard (swapped out for Tortoiseshell) and springs (only came with 3 and I like 5, so a set of vintage accurate spec springs from Mark Foley.

Fender American Vintage 52 Telecaster retro-fitted with a set of Mark Foley blackguard pickups (neck pickup has longer pole pieces for increased clarity).

Gibson Les Paul Traditional (2016 spec) which has had new hardware (Faber stoptail and ABR bridge conversion), Bareknuckle pickups (The Mule bridge, Stormy Monday neck) and BKP pots with vintage 59 style wiring.

Just switched to using Curt Mangan Matt Schofield signature strings (because they were the gauges I used already, not because Matt's name was on them).

Acoustic:

Sigma SOM-28H - basically Sigma's take on the Martin OM28 - fitted with Fishman pickup and preamp system.

Amp:

Fender ML212 Deville
Marshall 1936 cabinet fitted with a pair of WGS ET90's
Clearsonic baffle

Will be getting a Plexi flavoured amp around Christmas time, either a Ceriatone clone or a Victory Sheriff 44 (based on its use on That Pedal Show)

Effects:

Dunlop Bonamassa Wah
Boss TU3
Fulltone Supa Trem
Ceriatone Centura (Blue Bamboo 1 off)
Keeley Red Dirt
Ibanez Mini Tubescreamer
Keeley D&M Drive
Fire Custom Shop Carpe Diem

Mounted to Pedaltrain Classic Jr and mostly run through TheGigRig QMX6 QuarterMaster and powered using TheGigRig power system.

Effects are most definitely in flux at the moment. Will be ordering an Analogman Sun Face (possibly Sun Lion) soon and also want a Univibe type effect.

Sun Lion RCA is currently somewhere over the Atlantic winging its way to me... Also have a set of Foley 59 Reserve V1 pickups coming at the end of the month...

Exciting times!!

Guitars: Fender American Original 60s Strat, Fender American Vintage 52 Tele, Gibson Les Paul Traditional
FX: Various including - Ceriatone Centura, Fire Custom Shop Carpe Diem
Amp: Fender ML212 Deville + 212 extention cabinet

Re: Forum members guitar collection and playing rigs

I affectionately refer to my collection as the “A Team” and the “B Team”. The A team is what I’m currently playing and the B team doesn’t often see the light of day.

The A team is:
Guitars
Fender USA Standard Stratocaster (S/S/S)
Fender FSR American Stratocaster (H/S/S)
Fender Stratocaster (see below)
Fender Vintage ’62 Custom Telecaster re-issue
Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Gibson Les Paul ‘60s Tribute (P-90s)
Gibson Firebird V
Yamaha SA2200 (semi-acoustic)
Yamaha FG730S (acoustic)
Recording King RM-998-SD Style-O Resonator

Amps
Fender Limited Edition ’65 Deluxe Reverb Re-issue in Fudge Brown
Yamaha THR10C (practice amp)

Pedals (in signal order used with Fender amp)
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah-Wah
Korg Pitchblack Poly Tuner
Mad Professor Royal Blue Overdrive
Free The Tone MS-SOV (MS-SV) Overdrive (signed inside the battery cover by Matt Schofield)
TC Electronic Vibraclone
Way Huge Aqua Puss Analogue Delay (set for single repeat a little longer than slapback)
Way Huge Echo Puss Analogue Delay (for longer delays)
All powered by a VooDoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus
My pedalboard is a Diago PB-02 Gigman
My preferred pick is a Dunlop Ultex .88

Pedals used with Yamaha practice amp:
Wampler Euphoria & EHX Soul Food, or
Wampler Black ’65 & Maxon OD-808

I bought my Fender USA Standard Stratocaster in 1990 and about 5 years ago started to “upgrade” it with the following:

A genuine Fender Rosewood neck (the original was maple)
Amalfitano Daytona pickup set (also known as AMA pickup set)
Trem system replaced with Callaham USA Standard upgrade kit
TBX tone control replaced with regular tone control (but on bridge pickup only)
Neck pickup tone control replaced with zero-load tone control

Earlier this year I jokingly said to a mate that I had almost enough parts to make another Strat. I then couldn’t get the thought out of my mind so I re-instated all of the original parts to the USA Standard and bought the remaining parts needed together with the upgrade parts I already had to build another Strat. The biggest parts were the body and the tuners both of which I bought used but they were genuine Fender parts. The resulting guitar looks just like an early ‘90s USA Standard Stratocaster but it was built entirely by my own hand. Even though I say so myself, it is a great guitar and sounds amazing. This is my first choice guitar to play for about 95% of the time so even the other guitars in the A team are not played that often.

My B team is:
Guitars
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone Sheraton (Natural)
Epiphone Sheraton (Vintage Sunburst)

Amps
Peavey Classic 30 with 1 x 12 extn cabinet
Peavey Classic 50/410

Pedals
Too many to list but includes Boss, Way Huge, Maxon, Wampler & Okko.

Some of you may notice a Matt Schofield influence in my choice of gear, which I do not deny. So it is perhaps surprising that I sound nothing like him!

Tremolo claw – generic part
Tremolo cover/back plate – generic part in mint green

Re: Forum members guitar collection and playing rigs

Guitars:

Mostly Acoustics

Electrics: Charvel and a Yamaha with humbucker in the bridge position and two single coil. A Telacoustic that I use when I record surf. Bass is my main instrument. Fender Jazz, P-bass, Aria Pro, Steinberger copy.

Ampeg V-4 B
Some practice amps.
Trademark 10 TC Electronics
Marshall MG 15
Vintage Univox
Ibanez acoustic guitar amp with a coaxial speaker.
Alesis Bass Fire 60

Effects
Orange Squeezer
Zoom pedals
Arion Chorus
Zoom Rack mount

When I record I mostly use amp simulators.

As you can tell I am not a tube fan. BB King sounded great through a Lab Series amp. I rest my case. LOL!

Funny thing, I walked into a club and and the band was playing a Black Magic Woman by Santana and the guitar tone was just like Carlos Santana's. He was using a Lab Series.

Re: Forum members guitar collection and playing rigs

It's hard for a lot of us to accept that tone is mainly in the fingers and soul of the player.
