Yeah CO, it's a phenom! Semi-hollow bodied also!!

I WAS hoping to see amps pedals and processors also in this thread. THAT kinda lets you know what the guitarist is trying to achieve sound wise.

But the Klein, ......a jazz fav?? WOW!

Here's Studio A amp - it's actually point to point inside...true old Fender circuitry.

 

Here's my gal holding my Country Classic II Gretsch hollowbody freshly set up by Mike Lull:  http://www.mikelull.com/welcome%20frames.htm

 

 

Never believed in expensive set ups, but it's true, I'm now a believer.  This is a badass guitar as is, but now is even better.

 

This is a pic of Studio B where I play the Vibro King - wish it had a few less watts (Yeah go figure), too big for most bars (Cause it's fucking amazing when it's cranked).  I'm offing my 4 x 12 er...find no real need, but do have an extension blackface if needed.  Thinking of a Vibrolux reverb.

 

 

I love guitar talk...in action with the '65 mint Mustang that departed the building to Italy.

 

 

I decided to cut back to players...enough of the miscl crap (Though I have a double 8 steel that someday will get played).

The Mustang really sucked without a pedal.  I usually just try to stick to no pedal, with hefty reverb, but do sometimes run an Ibanez Chorus and Tube Screamer.

 

If I ever can find punks over 30 that still want to fucking rock and don't have the blues, the Boss Turbo Distortion will be reborn...of all the diffierent pedals I went through and sampled, I think the Turbo hit the nail of ALL/Descendents, Black Flag, etc.

my father and I contributed some of are collection for this book ,I think theres 7 or 10 of are tele's in there,we also did a gibson book too. theres 1 really cool tele we have it was called a smugglers tele there was all kinds of routes made under the pickguard for diffrent pickup placement but they called it a smugglers tele in the fender custom shop back in the early 70's

when they were experimenting for better sound.

Nice Kluskie!

 

Yeah my best bud's studio is insane for real...love playing there and do all the time- just take a pick (There's a bunch not there, but the Vibro King and the Princeton are total favs).  He's an electrician and travels around Seattle all day.  Each of his stops brings him near a slew of Pawn Shops.  It's died lately due to ebay of course (They hide the good stuff).  But there's a few that still love cash in hand off the books - just have to show them the money.  Plus he's got the gift of gab man, he talks those guys down on everything.  Pawn Exchange sends all the good guitars to a central location for ebay.

 

Seriously my band plays covers and select songs by me (I hate covers and they keep me happy).  Bars love to hear "jukebox rock" as I call it and my right hand guitar man is an amazing blues cat (But doesn't share the licks)...we play for 4 hours straight pretty often. Cover/bars are all fine and dandy, but unfulfilling in the long run for SURE.  My heart wants to play fast fast fast.

 

Yeah my chica is a cutey and lets me play with my geetars and skateboards all the time.  Thanks for the compliment!

 

You'd be really ill if you saw the shit my buddy has guitarwise.  It's disgusting (And even more if you knew how little the shit cost), but I was able to determine what I really wanted to play after years of being lost (I was always a Tele dude until the Gretsch found my hands).

Nice collections, all...

Oh man, what a can of worms... I can't believe you guys are getting me started down this road. I tend to be rather effusive about my gear. Sorry in advance.

Here's my main axe:


A mutant 1983 Japanese Strat. I've been playing it for 17 years. It was my first real guitar. It had this sticky black paint on the neck so I Jascoed it off of there and left a little black paint-sock on the headstock. I sanded down the neck and put a satin finish on it, and lo and behold it had some beautiful flame in the maple. Why they painted over it, I don't know. It had some funky Kahler type trem with a lock behind the nut, so I wanged it down with 5 heavy springs and 86'd the stupid locking mechanism. It doesn't budge now. I put some Duncan humbuckers in it, a JB in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck. I left the original single coil in the middle because it's a screamer, but I'm getting ready to replace it with a hot P90, maybe an original 60's Gibson, maybe a Fralin, I don't know. I managed to score a Sprague Vitamin Q glass sealed .022/400 capacitor somehow, which gives the most transparent 'woman tone' I've ever experienced. I did some custom wiring so I can get both Les Paul and Strat pickup combinations out of it. It's basically a Swiss army guitar now. I've had it since age 15, so it's like an old shoe.

I don't have a pic of it, but I just got a 1968 Gibson B25 12 string acoustic. Ohhhhh yeah. It's got this crazy crackled varnish, it looks like about a million people have played it over the years. And it sounds like Grandma's house...

Oddly enough, those are my only 2 guitars right now.

Okay, here's where I get passionate...
My main amp:



A Rotating Pies Genesis parallel SE 6V6, serial #000-00-0001 (well, because I built it). It's the amp I've always dreamed of. It's about the first and only thing I've ever built completely from scratch that actually turned out. It's only about 15 watts, but it's louder than some 50 watt amps I've owned.

Right now it's got 2 late 1940's JAN-6V6GT/G power tubes, a mid 1950's Sylvania 5Y3GT rectifier, and a mid 1950's unlabeled black plate 12AX7 (I think it's an RCA, just not sure. It's definitely one of the best sounding tubes in my collection). It will take 2 rectifiers, but that kicks the plate voltage way up to about 405VDC, which would melt a 6V6GT/G. So I'm only running one rectifier. I have an absolutely stunning matched pair of NOS Raytheon brown base JAN-6V6GTYs with 1958 date codes saved up for when the GT/Gs crap out on me. They're so solid, they have such heft in your hand. They were built for serious field use. I'll run dual rectos with the Raytheons, those tubes can take a serious beating. It's already a screamer with the old school tubes, I can't imagine what it will sound like with the high test military bottles and twin rectos in there.

The Santa Cruz Moose lodge gave me their old Baldwin A5 organ and tone cabinet for free, and there were 2 pristine 1960 Jensen blue frame AlNiCo 15" speakers inside (along with hundreds of original Black Beauty capacitors and some seriously beefy transformers!). Can you say JACKPOT!!! Once I put the Jensen in there, the amp just sat up and said "love me, Daddy... love me..." I run straight in through an Ernie Ball volume pedal, a Tube Screamer and a Crybaby. The cabinet is vintage pine plywood from the Baldwin tone cabinet shot with Line-X truck bedliner. I never dreamed I'd have tone like this amp burps up. And altogether it only cost me about $600.

I also have 2 1964 vintage amps, a Fender Brownface Bassman (with transitional Black Tolex) and a Kalamazoo Model One. The Fender is a 6L6 push-pull, and the Kalamazoo is a single ended EL84. I'm in the process of designing an EL34 powered amp, I think I'm going with 50 watts. I want to have all the major audio tube families represented.

Whew... I could totally go on but I've already said waaaaaaay too much. As you can probably tell, I'm a freaking tube HEAD! Sorry for all the word vomit. Thanks for sharing your stuff, everyone.
