Cool Former Fender Snob

This is my first REAL electric. It's an '83 Standard Strat. I was 17 when I bought it new.

My next new guitar was in 20 years later. A Hot Rodded Texas Special Strat.

That year I also saw this MIM Strat with a great Flame job. I also dropped in a Hot Rails humbucker in the bridge position. It was a Frankenstein hack job of an install [I did it myself] But it works.

Two years ago I decided I wanted a Les Paul sound without the Les Paul price. So this is my Schecter C-1 Elite

A few years ago I met Doug Doppler at a musician's conference near Seattle; he got me interested in Ibanez. So this year I got an RG.


I run all of these through a DigiTech GNX4 into the new Marshall HDFX stack, but I ran out of room for attachments. I used to be a Fender Only guy, but I like a humbucker now and then.

My newest. It's a killer find off of Craigslist for just $100. It's a 2000/2001 Hamer Stellar 1 in Cherryburst on Lacewood. This is an outstanding guitar at any price.

I did some swaps in my LP. Started out with the stock 490/498 Gibsons. Briefly had a Duncan JB in the bridge. A pink one. I forgot to take pictures of that. I was really excited when my new pickups came in, so I just tore it apart. Now it has a set of WB Firewaters.

Here is my set up.

First, my guitar - an 81 Fender "The Strat" which I love very much. If some guitar company wanted to make me a signature model, this would be it.




Next, my pedal board. Nothing is hooked up because I was moving stuff around, but this is how I currently have it set up. The bottom row is in front of the amp, the top row is in the effects loop. Also I use a Crybaby in between the overdrive and distortion, and a Q-Tron at the end of the effects loop, but I couldn't find either of them at the time of this picture.


Finally the amp. A Peavey Classic 30. You know how when people are proud of their stuff and they say "And oh man! It sounds even better then it looks!" Yeah...not the case with this amp. It gets the job done. Soon to be replaced by a Orange Tiny Terror combo (hopefully).

NEW ADDITION! HUGHES AND KETTNER EDITION TUBE!

Sounds sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet especially through my RG with middle pickup position and coil tap engaged (Satriani's newer pickups).

I run my RG or SZR into the H&K with the Korg ax1500g setup through the fx-loop for ambient+mod effects. it's an awesome sounding rig

Thumbs up

Here's my electrics:



Don't have a good pic of all my amps. Took this in January of '07 for a laugh, have since sold one of the 4x12 cabs in the foreground, and a bass combo back in the dark distance:



Of late (I've sorta semi-retired my '66 Super Reverb, which is probably my over-all fave, from gigging, though I break her out for special occasions), my rig is a 1960's Sunn 200S head into one of the following:

80's Risson 4x12:



'60's Kustom 1x15:



DIY 2x12 (made from a gutted Crate combo) with a couple silverback Celestions stuck in, this is what I've been using in church in addition to rock band gigs:



The Sunn is actually a bass head technically, and I've used it as such as well. Guitars are in rotation at my whim and caprice, as the photos indicate.

Any questions or ridicule gladly accepted.

There's a gear list here with links to pics of most everything (yes, I'm pathetic):

I just realized I left out my acoustics. Better post them or they'll get jealous-- you know women!

Yum. I remember when you got that white one recently. What do those electrics run (too rich for my blood, I'm sure, haha!)? Am guessing you are buying directly from Benford, as opposed to scouring the bush for used ones (as they all certainly look brand new)?

And last, since iirc the OP here said no posts without pics, I guess I have to post a pic or have my post deleted.

So here's a solo shot of Goldie. My most recent (Epi Custom Shop Ltd. Ed. WildKat):



I bet we could have a 5-page conversation just by posting individual pics of guitars.
