So Guitars are my passion, and today I feel like talking about them. Any of you have anything cool? A few jewels in my collection
I'm definetely more of a Fender type of guy.
I met an older guy once however, that bought a 1948 Gibson, one of the first acoustic to electric guitars ever made. The guy that he bought it from at some pawn shop just thought it was like any other guitar, and sold it to him for 200 dollars. It's worth something like $200,000 now. He let me play it for a couple of minutes and that was the best sound I've ever heard out of an instrument. It's in mint condition and all of the parts are the originals, except for the strings.
Thats fucking insane! I think the oldest Les Paul I have ever played was a 51. It sounded really good for Jazz and Blues but really couldn't handle to much distortion. I have a Rickenbacker that I am trying to put a picture of up. I like Fenders for a low distorted sound and rip a crazy blues rift through. I wanna know what the dude from the Black Keys plays, he gets an amazing sound out of his guitar. You can really hear his dischord when he plays and that, sometimes, is hard to do.
i have vintage pedals but i m too lazy to post pictures.
I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.
I should post my vinatge Vox tha was once owned by Chris Martin of Coldplay. But this isnt my thread and dont wanna encroach.
my first guitar was a 1975 gibson marauder that my dad used to own. i ended up selling it after it was falling apart beyond repair for scrap and got a 1984 kramer striker. thats really the last complete vintage guitar i owned, but i recently swapped the necks on my dan armstrong with an original from the early 70's. i have a mid 80's marshall jcm800 and a 1977 musicman hd130 2x12 which is just ready to get out of the shop after havin a much needed tune-up. i have a few vintage boxes including a 1998 zvex fuzzfactory(myrold paint job), a korean boss slow gear and a roland re201 space echo(dying) and im getting this within the next week...
Sweet guitars....my next will be a Ricky, for sure. I tried one out a few months back on my AC30, and it sounded insane.
I still have my old cry baby wah. Love it...it's never let me down.
Nips, that Digitech is sweet. A buddy of mine swears by it.
I have a late eighties Valley Arts California Pro. I have no pics readily available, but maybe when I get home I can post some.
I didn't take good care of it though and I need to get it fixed. The wood's a little warped on the bridge and some of the frets buzz. I'm keeping it in a case so that there is no further damage.
My collection includes
A 1961 Gibson Les Paul Jr. cherry colored (SG body style) lightest guitar ever!
A 1974 Gibson Alder S-1 Heaviest Guitar ever!
A 1979 Aluminum Neck Kramer XL naked wood stained finish.
A 1993 Fender Jazzmaster Japanese Reissue Sunburst
An early 90's Fernandes strat copy dunno what year it is but the neck is perfect. I've seen Issac Brock (before he sold out to PRS), Lee Renaldo & a slew of others have played this guitar here & there.
Each guitar is like a child to me I love them all equally.
I almost lost them & my Marshall half stack to all of the flooding here in Ohio. Thank God I didn't $3000 worth of my record collection didn't make it though.

And yeah I do have some recordings (soundboard) from the Del Mar Fairgrounds performance (12/28/1991). Setlist was:
Floyd The Barber
Smells Like Teen Spirit
About A Girl
Come As You Are
My only vintage guitar is a 1966 Fender Electric XII. It is sweet.
I have a 1982 Fender Bullet Deluxe and a 1960's ERA Silvertone Telecaster which is in pieces right now.
lollipops and crisps
I used to have a 1985 Strat, but now I have the 60th Anniversary Tele.
