I play guitar and bass.
I have a Washburn bx200, nothing fancy, but it does the trick and I'm not in a position to buy a better one at the moment.
My main guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, fitted with Seymour Duncans, sounds great!
My amp is a Line6 Spider III hd75, but I'm considering of saving money to buy a Marshall tube amp.

Here is my small collection.



From left to right:
Crate 15W Practice Amp
Fender Frontman 2x12 Reverb

Big Muff Pie Fuzz Box
Danelectro Overdrive Pedal
Rocktrock Classic Wah

2007 Telecaster Thinline 69' Reissue
J. Reynolds Single Bass (Year Unknown)
Seagull Entourage Mini Jumbo Rustic Acoutic (Year Unknown)
2003? Samick Royale
Austin Piece of **** Beater Travel Guitar

----------------------

I have some other pedals/older getars that arnt pictured for lazy reasons but my setup goes somehting like this currently (always changing):

The Thinline Tele->Rocktron Wah->Danelectro Overdrive->Big Muff->Frontman 2x12



I never use the amp footswith or the dirty channel mainly because the amp sound absolutely amazing clean so all fuzz/distortion/effects are added before running through the clean channel. The amp actually has a spring reverb box so I dont feel the need for a reverb pedal. Soon ill probably get an orange Tiny Terror Head with a 4x12 Marshall Cab but for most of my playing I really enjoy this super reliable Fender 2x12 solid state. Sure it may not have that super pushed tone when being strained like a Blues or Reverb fender tube amp but instead its built like a rock is only 50 pounds and never has problems. I plan to keep this baby for a long time. People dont seem to realize the solid state in the year of 2010 has really come a long way and gives tubes a run for there money.


----------



Tis my new Thinline. Craftsmanship on this baby is incredible, I will no longer pre-judge any guitar coming out of the Mexico factory. Sounds great, looks great, and best of all the neck is extremely smooth and a perfect U shape like the '69 tele its modeled after. I am curious to try one of these guys made over in japan, and see if they have any differences in coil wind/tone. Im sure if you forked out a few thousand you could get a US one from the custom shop but personally I am no brand snob Hell, Tom Morello's main tele is one of the cheaper mim models from the mid 90's and that thing sounds epic.

-----------
The next project is to add a B5 bigsby on this baby!

As of right now, I have a black Ibanez bass, which is my true possession, but I used to be a crazy drum fanatic, and I have a Ludwig Starterkit drumset, and I have tore that thing up. I used to drum all of the time, but now I'm starting to get into bass, and it's working better than drums.

As for myself, I have a MIM Fender Strat and a Gibson SG played through a Marshall MG250dfx along with a whole array of BOSS pedals (and the Big Muff of course). This setup does what I need it to do. Once I get a better income I plan on investing in some recording equipment.

Thats funny because its part of the reason I got the Big Muff. I had read somewhere that Billy used almost all single coil guitars and that fuzz pedal o achieve that nirvana of fuzz.

Great minds think alike.

Btw, what kind of Sg do you have? i have wanted a special or standard for the longest time. Specials are a great deal, and they have everything except the inlays and finish.


Noone can tell me thats not a beautiful guitar.

I've got a cherry red standard. By far it is one of the sexiest guitars in existence, but I find myself picking up my strat far more often. The way the neck is shaped, for some reason, allows me to create these incredibly weird and unique chords. That then gets my creative juices flowing a lot more easily than with the SG. However, I absolutely love the SG's humbucking sound and it doesn't feel like you have a dead dear slung around your neck like other Gibsons (*cough* les paul *cough*), so if I hit a chord progression I really like and feel I need the extra bite I'll practice with the strat and move it to the SG.

In other words, that was a long way of saying that I'm a strat guy but I still love my SG and am very glad to have both guitars.

I am in agreement that a big part of the sg's draw is the weight. I am a big fan of Thinlines/Semi Hollow's though. That makes having a paul/tele styled guitar much easier on the shoulder. And then theres the Es-335 style which I pretty much only play sitting down (hail bb king)

Your lucky to have that Sg! Gogogog put a Bigsby on the bitch.

I'm with you on the semi hollows, man. I have a big problem with going for guitars that look cool over guitars I know suit my style more. I really want to replace my MIM with an American made strat, but this guitar has been calling my name:



I've been eyeing this one for a long time now.
