Default I'll bite, these threads are always fun

Think we've done a thread like this before but it's probably buried, it was a while ago, so here's the current junk -

Guitars:

Fender (US) AVRI '59 Strat
Gibson Robot Guitar (1st production run, so basically an LP Studio but with neck binding)
Fender Classic Series (Mex) '72 Deluxe Telecaster
Fender (Mex) Baja Telecaster
Fender (Japan) Rosewood Telecaster (c. '86 or so) - very early "satin" finish
Fender (Korea) Koa Stratocaster
Godin Solidac (although this one is sort of for-sale)
ABM Lapsteel

plus a couple basses - Fender (Mex) Classic 50's RI P-bass & Yamaha BB414

Amps:

Fender Blues Jr. with Celestion Alnico Blue
Gretsch G5222 with Jensen Ceramic

Effects:

Z-Vex SHO
Z-Vex Lo-Fi Loop Junky
Boss DD-2
Boss DD-6
Keeley Ibanez AD9
Keeley Boss TR-2 Tremolo
Analogman Boss GE7 EQ
Ibanez CP9 Comp/Limiter
Boss CS2 Comp/Limiter
Boss CH1 Super Chorus
ProCo RAT (recent one)
Ibanez TS7 (modded, aftermarket 808-style opamps)
MXR Smartgate
TC Nova Reverb
Electro Harmonix Switchblade
Roger Mayer Voodoo Vibe Jr.
... and of course a Boss TU-2

Telecaster
Stratocaster
Ibanez Prestige

There's "nothing like a real amp" and I've got "nothing like a real amp" - so that's a result.

Axe-Fx
POD Farm Platinum
Guitar Rig 3+4
V-amp Pro
Zoom G2

I'm so glad I've got the talent to make it all work.

I wouldn't mind a small tube amp but that won't be happening any time soon.
Plenty of guitars I'd like but whoosh, the cost has gone through the roof. Time to start buying those authentic guitars from China that appear on Ebay. Totally real in every aspect, apart from the body, the neck, the machine heads and the pick-ups, which are fake. Real strings, though.

I can go into detail as I'm pretty DVD don't stock any of the following, tho' I won't put any links up, just in case.

1/ Richwood Tree of Life limited edition LP clone.

Mahogany body with quilted maple top finished in Honeyburst. Only 168 made, 24 in each of 7 colours, it cost peanuts in relation to the quality, a absolute gem that, imo, the Gibson custom shop would struggle to match without charging very silly money. I paid 490 inc hard case and even tho' I've replaced the stock pups with a pair of Irongear Steamhammers, the total cost is still well under 600.

2/ AcePro AE625.

PRS style, spalted maple top with EMG passive humbuckers for 249 inc hard case. Not quite up there with my Richwood, but it's not far behind, mainly due to the factory QC not being as attentive as they could have been, but well worth the extra cost of a full pro setup.

3/ J&D SE890.

Ash body with maple and nayto thro' neck, S/S/H for under 90? This was a total steal, it plays like a dream, as good as it looks in fact, and even factoring in replacing the pups with 2xGFS Lil' Killers and a GFS Bigmouth Bridge meant a total outlay of under 150.

4/ LAG Jet.

Another cheapo at around 99 tho' after fitting a set of inexpensive Axesrus own brand pups, this is probably my most played guitar. Nothing fancy to look at, it just plays so well with a action to die for.

5/ AcePro 12 string superstrat.

I can't say much about this other than it cost around 120 and is in bits atm, but in one piece it's a nice guitar, again with a fantastic action.

6/ Richwood RG-18-CE Grand Auditorium acoustic.

A lovely acoustic that now boasts a action that shames most electrics. Solid cedar top, mahogany back and sides with ivory maple binding and fitted with a Fishman Classic 4 peizo pup. I think I paid just over 200 and it's a all round good acoustic, even if the sites boast about it being a Taylor killer is well wide of the mark.

Amps,

VOX AD15VT, just a lovely little, tho' loud, amp.

Roland 15X, ditto the above comment.

A cheap'n'cheerful Toneworks AX1500GT multi fx. Most of the presets are a bit iffy, but digging into it can give some excellent results.

Wow!! Which variant? "Standard?" Custom? Deluxe?

Here you go, it's a standard Tele. Serial number 326862 indicates it was made c. Jan/Feb 72. Neck code is 3 MAR 72. I think that guitar has done over 1000 gigs, so you can see that I've kept it in reasonable condition. It's heavy, even for a Tele, but sounds superb. I remember it cost around 220 new, but I had it re-fretted and the electrics cleaned a while back, and that cost rather more!

Beautiful stuff. All "CBS prejudice" aside I really love Teles from that era. Might be Fender's marketing department putting that in my head of course with their whole range of "72 reissues" - or it might be that I dislike most Strats from about '66-onwards, but I think the Telecasters of the time were some very cool guitars!
