Musicians, post your equipment and gear in this thread to show off and brag and talk about music and such!

This is my Fender stratocaster in black with a maple neck and fretboard. I replaced the default white pickguard with the tortoise shell one and I think it looks damn sharp. Default Fender pickups.

Seen in the background is my Morgan Monroe Blues 32 acoustic guitar with an added piezo pickup inside the soundbox.

This is my D'Agostino Les Paul Custom copy. I picked this up at a pawn shop for $130. It has Grover tuners and we believe 1970 issue Dimarzio pickups. Seen in the background is my acoustic as well as a Gewehr 98 from WWI.

This is my stompbox, a Digitech RP355. It is also a modeling processor. It does something like a billion different amps :rolleyes: I like it though, it is seen here set to my Comfortably Numb preset, though it has a total of 70. I can use software to make preset so I don't have to dick with the knobs. It's also got USB out which means I can make direct recordings to my computer using either Cubase or Audacity.

Here's my keyboard, a Yamaha PSR-S500. It's where I stack a lot of ****. I cleared off most of it for this picture so you could see it's a keyboard. The magazine is a ****ty publication of my honor society, and the Journal of Mental Health Counseling is a virtually worthless publication of one of my professional organizations.

This is my amp, a Crate Vintage Club 50wt. It's got an amazing clean channel and a great dirty channel. The coolest features are the footswitch to change channels and the master level knob which allows me to control the volume even when I have the gain up to 100%.

So what kind of gear do you guys rock with?

I don't know about rock (I tend more to classical), but I have a piano and a small Celtic harp. :) I'll post pics when I'm home.

I have no photos of my guitar, but it's easy to google something:

Mine is covered in random stickers.

I don't have a decent amp right now.

That's a nice looking guitar. I dig the S-S-H configuration. Sorry to hear about your amp situation. What kind of music do you play?

Also, I'm looking forward to seeing a celtic harp.

Yeah, I really like the pickup configuration. With the switches, I can have the neck and bridge pickups running and leave the center pickup out, or turn on all three. It can make for some kind of odd sounds, though.

I started by learning 70s rock, back in the 90s, and kind of expanded from there. I haven't practiced in a few years but I'm trying to get motivated to practice again right now. Or rather, trying to put the motivation into action so I can play again. I was also majoring in music in college when I was learning, but ended up dropping out after a term because I hit that wall that you hit when you have no coping mechanisms.

I do have an amp - an old tube amp that I think was hand-built. I got it from a guy for 30 dollars several years ago. I need to see if it still works. It does sound nice if you turn it all the way up, but I can't really get away with that. Also, I really want a proper stack.

I have a Yamaha acoustic electric guitar, a Yamaha electric guitar and a cheap Crate Electra bass guitar. I lent the first two to a friend so I only have a picture of the bass.

Not a musical instrument, but this is my Luxman R-113 analog receiver from 1988. One of my favourite possesions.

I currently have 3 guitars, my prized possession is my Washburn Dime 333 in the Dimeslime green which I bought off my mate a few months ago.
It has a Schaller trem in it which does wonders for sustain and those awesome harmonic squeals, and a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker in the bridge possi, I have just acquired a brand new Invader to go in it as I am looking for a bit more range but haven't fitted it yet.
I also have an Epiphone SG Special LM that I bought about 7 years ago when I was doing my apprenticship. Spent a long time living on toasties and 2 minute noodles so I could afford that one :).
Plus my Cort acoustic electric.
My Amp is an old Marshall Valvestate VS 100,
It's pretty old but it still cranks!!
Not much in the way of effects, just my trusty Boss Metal zone and a little digitech RP80
I'm using my phone and I have no idea how to post pics with it but will try and get some up sometime soon.
