Guitar's back! Garrison AG-200. Gorgeous thing, and I'm so happy I bought one when I could, before Gibson bought them out and dissolved the company.



Thought I'd get an obligatory gear shot in too. Took it whilst packing up after band this morning hence the lack of power cables for me pedals (they're hiding in the box). JamMan Solo XT for looping and Behringer X V-Amp for a multitude of effects. Electric's just a cheap 100 Stagg. Nothing amazing but it gets me by when I need to go full electric.

Sup guys. I sold my Parker Nitefly V1 (the 96, strat style one) not the one I usually post pics of me playing. Got $500 for it at GC. Which is what I traded the Acoustic Black Widow we paid $500 for. Paid some bills. Meh. I just never needed two parkers. I'm mostly playing the yamaha acoustic electric now anyway. I feel like I'm set for gear for life. GAS'd out.

Wish I could say I was gas'ed out  :-o

Serious GAS for one of the following:
1) Epiphone SG G400 (worn cherry, I think)
2) Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro (a blue one)
3) Squier Telecaster Deluxe (alpine white, like Chris Sheflett's)

Only thing in common is 2 humbuckers for when I need (ok, want  :lol: something other than the single coils on my Telecaster.

Just got me one of these babies for 35 euros.



It's a 1985 Ibanez DS10 Distortion charger, made in Japan and it is my new favourite overdrive.

as a highlight of how versatile this thing is, here's something I put together with just that and a tremolo pedal for a couple of parts.

Its been so long since I played a guitar plugged in I might need instructions.
At least some healthy GAS has returned.

1934 Epiphone Hollywood Masterbilt Tenor

I mean, I don't really NEED 6 strings, do I?
New Album hopefully in early 2016. True to form right after I got all the new recording software loaded on lappy, Windows10 ate itself. :(

I know I'm insanely late to the party on these, but I just got some most excellent Joyo pedals.


Does what it says on the tin. It's a chorus and it was cheap. I was sick of using my delay as one, so this replaces it. Sounds excellent doing what it does.


This digital delay is fucking great. One second of delay on the pot, but if you tap tempo it, it'll give you anywhere up to six. Great for combining with my analog delay for trippy as fuck sound scapes. Also has a reverse delay setting, which I've always wanted for no good reason. Best feature is that it has two presets which you can switch between using the left button on its own. Seamless, noiseless transitions from space echo style delay to reverse/digital/however you set it. No controls for the oscillation, but that's what I have an analog delay for anyway so screw that. Solid piece of kit.

One thing I wouldn't have minded is it being stereo out, but you know, that's kind of asking a bit much for such a cheap and functional pedal.

So I got myself a flanger hoax.



Not only is it pretty and huge, but it's fucking versatile. I still haven't figured it out completely, but it'll do some far-out stuff when combined with a delay and a stereo amp setup.

Wow. GAS for Hofner Archtop New President I saw in Cali last month.
But since we can't get dick for bookings these days, I guess I'll soldier on with the yamaha.  :x

Man, my dad has a hofner senator (1959) and those things are fucking beauties. I honestly can't think of many guitars I love more than that particular thing.
I played one of the new presidentsand was slightly disappointed by it, but maybe it just hadn't quite 'settled' yet if you know what I mean. It played very well, but it somehow didn't feel quite as lively. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that it was single cut as well. Full bodied acoustics always seem to have a slightly fuller sound to me.


Either way it played beautifully and you could do much worse. Have you considered the godin 5th avenue as a second option?

Those are nice too (Godins) I had not looked at them. Definitely better than a lot of other options available.

Is this really some weirdo thing? I thought the norm was to upgrade your amp first, then upgrade your guitar. Especially when these are PRS imports, not cheapo imports.

I have a hand built amp which I play an old tanglewood strat copy through. My most expensive guitar is a partscaster I paid 250 for. Jeph don't know what poverty is :p

I can get a good sound out of any old bad guitar with a decent amp. Opposite I wouldn't want to bet on it.
