I use mostly Hufschmid and Mayones guitars. Got some PRS Santana SE and moded Squier for some jamming and cheap gigs (I mean...when I'm afarid I can loose the guitar - forget, stolen or something tongue.gif ) I also have my custom Bloody Mary with EMG's for drop tunings.

As for the amp I usually use Cornford RH30 with 4x12" custom Clamor cab (2x V30 + 2 x Greenback) + T.C G-major in the effects loop.

If the pub / stage is small I just go with a little H&K Club Reverb combo.


Ha! Cornford and Mayones smile.gif Great choices man!

Some stunning guitars posted here!

I mainly play through my Fender Hotrod Deluxe combo switching between Fender Malmsteen strat, American special strat with humbucker, Gibson classic LP, or a Squier vintage vibe telecaster. I play them all reguarly so I guess I don't have a main guitar. Although I have the most history with my LP. I still have a Laney 50 watt head with Marshall 1960 4x12 but don't crank it up too often. smile.gif

I see You got some true classic in Your rig smile.gif Lately I have some strat period - seems like there is nothing like true single coil, 21/22 frets and the neck tone with lower gain but nice treble end...yamiiii:D I don't suppose I'll buy a Fender but I've got a local guy Who makes guitars for fun and his results are amazing comparing to the prices he requests smile.gif If everything goes ok I'll be happy owner of fully made of Ash, no painting (natural) strat for some time.

Currently own a Squier (Korea 1996 Anniversary) quite good comparing to the new ones but I think I'm gonna pull out the hardware and electronics and put itto the new one biggrin.gif

Yea, my tastes have changes over the years. There was a time that I I would not want a Fender strat... but now I really dig the woody tones in the neck and versatility with the tone, volume knobs, and 5-position pickup switch. I actually rather play leads with it over my Les Paul most of the time. I grew up more with more high-octane metal stuff and was always into EMG 81/85 on mid-price ranged ESP and Ibanez's guitars but I felt they always lacked tone when you wanted to dial it down a bit with some mild OD or just a classic blues sound.

The Classic vibe Tele I bought recently with the Alinco III pickups and pine wood body is a very nice guitar. I always had a low opinion of Squier from reputation but was really surprised with this one. The tone is really warm and pleasant in the neck and the bridge is bright and twangy. Sounds like the real deal to me with out the higher price tag. Cosmetically it doesn't look as good as a American Tele but that doesn't bother me too much.

Lol yea there all the same, all hss. The only ones I planned on keeping is the brown one with black pick guard, i keep it tuned half step down. and the one shown next to the les Paul, in standard tuning. The other is a 1960 reissue that I got for a really good price used and couldn't pass it up. I'm going to sell it hopefully for more than I payed. I'm going to use the money twords a shecter blackjack sls.

Is there a story on the scorched Fender amp? unsure.gif

QUOTE (Amp360 @ May 31 2013, 07:03 PM) *
When I play electric I either like a 58-60 Gibson Les Paul Standard or a cool old Fender but I usually always use the old Fender amps.

Yea they all do look very similar. When i got them it wasnt really about the color it was more a good deal for a used guitar smile.gif , except for the redish strat i bout that one new. I got my eye on a schecter the black gun metal one or the dark blue. biggrin.gif. I need a more metal guitar.

The Fender amp is not scorched. It's a pretty rare Deluxe. It was made in 1949 and although the TV front Deluxe was made for a few years this one has the horizontal tweed as opposed to the tweed being on a bias, as later ones were.

I bought this one on ebay a few years ago for about $400. It worked fine but had been painted black and had a replaced speaker and grill cloth. I managed to get a lot of the paint off. What looks scorched is just what remains of the black paint.

Very cool ebay score!

*I'm still curious about the Tele custom with the amp logo in the bout - ? A custom was my first alleged 'good' electric guitar (it was actually a giant POS from '77).

Scalloped neck on that Malmsteen Strat? I have only had the chance to try a scalloped neck once , but I really really loved it! smile.gif

Im only gonna sell the 1960 strat, keeping all the others smile.gif I think I'm gonna go with schecter cause I wanted a guitar for drop tunings, and I've read a lot of good reviews on schecters and read some history on them, I've played a few and thought they felt and sounded good. I especially like the history schecter has, if anyone one like to check it out here's a short history of the company..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schecter_Guitar_Research

I'm most likely gonna set it up a step and a half down, I've never really played guitars that dropped it would be cool if I can use it to occasionally tune further down to "B" and up to drop "C" then back to 1 1/2 down. How would you set this up and what gauge string would you use to be able to play these 3 diff tunings smile.gif

I bought that a long time ago. It's a '73 and it's a really great guitar. I have older Teles and CS ones but this one sounds great. The Pre-1974 ones with the staggered pole pieces and light weight bodies are fantastic guitars. When the poles got flat and they got heavy not so much.

I put the logo on there in maybe 1990. I think I paid $500 for it, which was about what a new American Standard cost at that time.

Bleh, I have more of a budget setup tongue.gif don't kill me please ;o

Amp: Fernandes FA-10 Modified (my little practice amp), and a handmade (by my dad) amp with four huge speakers and built-in overdrive (yeah I don't know how my dad does it, he just makes things that I wouldn't ever think possible).



Effects: Boss DS-1 pedal, Zoom G1N effects processor.




Recording Equipment: VSTs (Guitar Rig 4, Poulin plugins and amplitube among others), REAPER, direct line-in to PC's sound card, regular speakers nothing special.

Guitars:



From left to right:
I don't know what make that guitar is, but I got it used for a pretty cheap price. Plays well for rhythm, but the floyd is unstable on it so no whammy for it.
ESP M-II, my latest guitar and my main for metal/rock biggrin.gif I'm in love with this beauty smile.gif
Handmade, this is my main for anything not metal/rock smile.gif I don't think I can let go off this one. Its pretty heavily modded by myself, I even did all the electronic stuff on it myself.

So yeah, nothing special, but this is my "setup" and it makes me real happy whenever I pick up any of my guitars smile.gif
