For live...
Les Paul (or Telecaster, depending on the song) > Line 6 POD XT Live (owned by my church) > Line 6 Spider III amp
At some point I'd like to use a laptop as my rig, with Line 6 Gearbox.

For acoustic...
Takamine 12string or Jay Turser 6string > Boss TU-12 > Fender Acoustasonic 30DSP amp > PA

The Line Out on the Fender amp does not mute the speaker, so I use the amp as a monitor.

For recording...
Les Paul or Telecaster > TU-12 > TS808 > Spider amp > Kristal via soundcard

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Hey, I'm pretty new here and I thought I'd go ahead and post my bit of gear:

Epiphone Sheraton II
Epiphone Firebird

Fender Tuner > Weber Cattledrive > Danelectro Daddy-O (no idea why I keep it on my board..yuck) > TS7 > Boss OS-2 > RP-200 > DD-20 > VOX AC15CC1 or (if I need more volume) '73 Traynor YSR-1 Custom Reverb w/ Plush cab

Acoustic-wise I've got an Ovation Celebrity...not a top-of-the-line acoustic, but through the PA can get it sounding pretty good..
This is what it looks right now...hopefully it'll look a little (a lot) different after Christmas..

With the exception of a few pedals, I'm very happy to say that I'm running my ideal rig. Not dream rig, but within the ten grand price range, I'm very, very, very happy.


G&L Bluesboy Semi-Hollow > Vox Volume > BossTunerDelayEQ > MXR Supercomp > Keeley Fuzz Head > Tech 21 Sansamp GT2 > EHX Pulsar Trem > EHX Holy Grail > Orange AD30HTC

Some slight modifications in my rig:

G&L Tribute ASAT Special > Fulltone FD2 > Fulltone OCD > First Act Analog Delay > Mesa/Boogie Blue Angel

Got the delay, OCD, and tubes for the Blue Angel for Christmas. I swapped out some of the 12AX7's in the Blue Angel with three 12AT7's and it was remarkable how improved the tone was. I'm loving this thing. If anyone hasn't heard of the First Act Delay, you can buy it for $40 at Toys 'R Us of all places, and it really does sound great. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to buy an analog delay. It's very warm and not noisy at all, and absolute steal at the price. Buy it before they up the price. I love it.

my rig is pretty basic, my focus was on getting a quality amp, cab ang guitar before i delved into the wild world od effects.

guitar -> krank distortus maximus -> carvin legacy -> mesa recto 4x12

i use the krank whenever i feel like i want that modern, mid-scooped hi gain sound. the legacy covers everything else i play quite nicely.

It's evolving a decent amount, but here's my latest rig:

Agile AL-2000 Silverburst > Johnson Strat Copy > Vox V847 Wah > Danelectro Fab Distortion > Vox AD50VT212 > MXL 991 mic > MobilePre USB interface > HP desktop computer running Ubuntu Studio Edition/My laptop running Vista > Audacity

I rarely use my Fab pedal anymore, as the Vox's distortion is more than pleasing to me. For my Acoustic Rig, it's like this:

Epiphone PR-100 > MXL 991 mic >MobilePre USB > HP desktop computer running Ubuntu Studio Edition/My laptop running Vista > Audacity

I also recently picked up a Bass. My Bass rig will probably be:

J.B. Player Pro Series Bass > Crate/Acoustic amp (haven't decided) > MXL 991 mic > MobilePre USB > HP desktop computer running Ubuntu Studio Edition/My laptop running Vista > Audacity.

I use the following other gear:
Dunlop Straplok
Dunlop Capo
Dunlop Tortex 1.0 and 0.50 mm picks
D'Addario EXL110 strings (Electric)
Martin SP strings (Acoustic)

And some Musician's Friend cables.
