hehe i see on the front page a link to guitar software
anyone have others they would recommend ?
www.line6.com check out the guitar port... pretty nifty bit of gear for mucking around with guitar and pc at home.
oh, and i use a Carvin neck-thru , sometimes a gibson V with EMG81's ,last time we recorded songs i mostly used a Les Paul, unsure what year it was but it was a really nice guitar to use apart from all the bruises
recently bought a Line6 Pod so ive been mucking around with that lately but my rig for outside the bedroom is a peavey ultra plus 120watt head into a marshall1960b cab (i couldnt afford the peavey ultra matched quad, marshall was half its price) and the only effects i ever use is a bad horsie wah.
Myself, I have a few crappy guitars, 1 Epi Les Paul, and 2 crappy Strat copies. I've also got a Roland Cube 60 solid state amp, but my baby is my Eminar all valve head and box. It's getting re-tubed soon I hope
The other guys in the band.... different story. Froodogs, the rhythm guitarist uses a Fender US Fat Telecaster (I think its a Fat... can't recall exactly).
Glenn, the lead guitarist, has an amazing collection of guitars and amps...
2 (yes, 2) Paul Reed Smiths
Gibson 70s Les Paul Custom
a real 335
In the way of amps, he's got a mesa boogie combo (50W) and his real pride and joy, a mesa boogie mk4 (i think) from the 70s, custom cabinet, signed, 100W. It's an absolute NUTTER of an amp.
Yeah... bang on all
These ones are my "Keepers". Have owned many, and have a
couple more, but these ones I'll never sell.
The Guild 12 String.
Once you play one of these there is no going back...
The Fretless Fender Precision.
Early 70s, original case, original PU (might go to EMG), Ash Body,
The Custom Warmouth Jazz.
The nicest instrument I've ever owned. Warmouth Alder Jazz
Body, Leo Quann Badass II bridge, Fender machine heads, FGT
actives and a simply Awesome neck. Warmouth Jazz BirdsEye
Maple with Ebony Fingerboard(!) A Sensational Bass in every aspect.
Check out the Birdseye Maple.
Bass rig is Trace Elliot Series 6 AH Head & Quadbox.
How much did the amp set u back
PS i have a squir strat which i find very good for a first guitar and a shitty squir amp that is falling apart but i am looking to buy a marshall amp ( i just have to find out the 1 i want)
Can't say I'm a fan of Daisy Darrell, he's ruined many an awesome Pantera song with a toneless solo. Phil's done well to get better guitarists in his other bands (Pepper Keenan, you're my hero!)
Anyhow, Dime bashing aside, here's my guitar:
But, in Cobalt Blue. It's great to play, the small body makes it awesome for throwing around (not literally). I run it through whatever quaddy I can scam off the studio, a crybaby wah, and on occasion my DOD multi-fx (which I also scored for bugger all at a sale), but I prefer amp distortion.
Picked it up for pocket change at a Music Junction sale a few years back. Also have a beat up old acoustic that my mum left to me.
awww man that precision pro fretless and the tripple humbuckered sg look like so much fun, kudos to you guys for having such fine taste
Yeah, the decision to buy the Precision Fretless was probably half based on looks! I've always loved clear finish basses.
toneless solo?? pepper keenan better than dime?
pepper admitted jimmy bower is better "he runs circles around me" (pepper) dimebag IS pantera. hes the best guitarist phil has played with. CoC suck..
segression is better even (sydney)
I had nothing nice to say about segression, so now in hindsight I'm saying nothing.
My New Guitar
+ 2 EMG 81s
Here's my old Ovation. It's about a 1982 Glenn Cambell Special. It has a smaller body than the legend.
I'm so damn lazy that I haven't even used either since I bought them, have been making all sorts of excuses, gah, now I've got some spare time I gotta play damnit!
Yamaha FG413S Acoustic:
BC Rich Warlock (in black):
Legend Vintage Series (no pic, it's a strat copy in red.)
and just today i added a mighty Ibanez RG570 to my collection
I don't which is the bigger beast, the guitar or the bean bag
el bambino, nice garbage pale kids sticker
My flatmate is making the final payment on his Gibson ES-135 on Thursday. Fat bastard.
