    '63 SG Special. It's very, very light and thin. I haven't run across another like it. The late '60s ones seem to be twice as thick. I guess as I got older, I appreciated the load off my shoulders.

    The Fender Shenandoah is a really nice recording guitar. Which is a surprise considering Fender isn't known for acoustics. You can hear the guitar on the Bobby Goldsboro hits from 40 years ago.

    The bass stuff belonged to a friend. He was the first electric bass player in Nashville. When that Jazz bass finally had to be replaced, he went through the others trying to replace the sound. Never did, as far as I know. The Alembic came closest.

    The Martins and the Everly Brothers are from another old picker who's no longer with us. They were all friends, and I just try to keep their stuff together. What's not in the museum, that is.

    I've never even played that Tele. I don't care for Fender electrics. That particular one was given to my bassist friend by Roger Miller, back in '64, to replace one he had taken out of the studio to play a gig and misplaced.

    My favorite amp is probably the '59 Bassman. It's one of a kind. Totally tricked out by Fender, back when Leo still ran it. It's worthless for a live gig, but it's got tone for days. Yeah, you have to mike it, but, hey!

    Glad y'all enjoyed the list...

    i have a cheap 4 string Samick electric bass, and a POS amp. Trying to save up for something a lot better. Not a bad bass to play ( tho as its the only one i've had, for about a year now, so i don't know how well it compares )

    Its got a pretty nice low action, not much buzz, but it gets a bit floppy on the E / A strings around the 12th fret

    Love playing it.

    Low action beats high action for sure, as when it starts getting high, the string starts feeling sloppy and starts slipping around to much. Low action lets me play faster ( less way to push down ). High action does give a different sound tho. Whatever suits you:)

    How hard is that fretless to play anyway ?

    Guitar

    Hi,
    I've got a Fender Strat (Made in USA) 40th Anniversary Edition.
    LaGrange Ranger Plus (Strat Copy)
    Guitar Tech. Bass
    Yamaha CG-40A Nylon with a cheap $5 pickup i bought in Philippines.(First guitar I learned on, still sound good though!)
    Celebrity Ovation, can't remember the model.
    Hope you have fun playin like I do!
    I recommend www.fender.com....coz i've got a bit of bias towards those guitars.
    Next one will be a Telecaster.
    Btw, listen to Chet Atkins, he's a guitar god i reckon!
    :D

    i would just like to say that my dad has by far the best bass out of anyone here:

    it is a Hand Made 'WAL' bass - was made approx 22 years ago which he bought for the equivalent of $500

    it is now worth $20k+

    'nuff said :D

    Time to change my entry for this thread.

    I now have:

    1. Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray, natural finish, maple neck, black pickguard
    [​IMG]

    2. Ampeg SVT 350-H Classic Reissue 350 watt head
    [​IMG]
    Mines the 50th Anniversary edition; exactly the same model as above but with an aluminium faceplate instead of black and silver sparkle on the fabric where it says Ampeg, underneath the amp.
    3. Mercury 4x10 Cab

    Piece of crap, eventually to be replaced with an SWR 4x10 and SWR 1x15.

    Ok I'll tell you about my guitars since I dont have any pics.
    electric: Epiphone by Gibson "strat" style body
    explorer style head stock humbucker on the bridge its red w/ a white scratch plate. (Quite similar to Kusanagi's squire a few posts back)I think its a nice guitar I bought it @ a pawn shop cheap - my first and as yet only electric. would love a les paul or better yet a tele thinline w/ the F hole and the gibson style humbuckers.
    acoustic a sunburst ONYX "country classic" that has a crappy
    piezo p/u. again I bought it cheap as my go anywhere axe. plays quite well and compliments a more typical dreadnought well
    effects Zoom 707 multi
    crybaby wah and last but not least "the RAT" I believe its an original
    well ther you have it now that's off my chest. Some of you guys have some insanely cool stuff, I hope they all get played and are not stored behind glass like some painting investment.

    These are my babies... the one on the left is an old classical acoustic, nice tone, made in Sweden about 30 years old, middle on is a Yamaha FG-413S acoustic, i was going to get the Fender DG14S which a few people here have but this has a much nicer tone and more presence tho doesnt look as pretty... and my electric is a Yamaha RGX121s not a bad gutiar, good for metal, but i dont really like metal anymore which is unfortunate, the amp is a Marshall 100W valvestate, as for pedals i have a BOSS ME-33 multi effects pedal, a DOD grunge pedal and a Dunlop cry baby :)
