biggrin Guitars....what do you play?

There's alot of guitarists that are into cars (Fords) and vice versa.
This ain't a poll, just an introduction for some of us strummers to say Hello!

I build electrics, but my current toys are,

USA 57 reissue Strat, Ice Mettalic Blue, many mods!!!
1981 Juan Alvarez (Madrid) Concert Flamenco, Niiiiiiiiiiiiice!!!
Custom (by me) Resolectric, and 6 string Banjo,
and 3 rebuilds (Tele's) specs to be determined.

Commisioned Tele Bass on the way, customer to provide start up funds.

What's your toy???

Oh, and by the way.......make noise!!!!!

Re: Guitars....what do you play?

I play a Monterey Les Paul copy, cheap and nasty I know, but it sounds good through my Marshall JCM800 with a bit of EQ to really make it drive.

I also play an even cheaper Samick bass through a Behringer ULTRABASS BX4500H

When building a car up for years it makes affording good instruments hard!

Oh, and the bass straight through the Marshall played with a pick sounds classic Motörhead!

I currently play... oh, shit - I just sold my last electric!

So at the moment it's a Fender DG-7 Acoustic (beautiful guitar), a Johnson dobro and a Jida 5-string banjo.

Previous cast:

- mid-70's honey-blonde Telecaster
- SRV Strat
- Gibson ES-335 (girlfriend's guitar, but I played it more than she did)
- Squier Strat (Mexican) with proper strat pickups.

Amps included a Peavey 60watt, a Marshall half-stack, a real vintage Vox (also borrowed) and a 40watt Marshall practice amp, that i also just sold.

Re: Guitars....what do you play?

Well I play a Fender Strat...and at the moment am building up a copy tele...but am seriously stuck LOL.

Stuck as in I don't know/can't remember where to solder the pickups to the pots and the selector. I am an idiot.

BACK II BACK
