    Hi from New Zealand.

    I'm 50-ish and have played guitar off and on for 35 years.
    Been in a couple of bands back in the day, but just play as a hobby now.
    I've owned countless guitars and amps over the years, but have been lucky enough to own a couple of real gems.
    Some of the Marshall's I've had include;
    Jcm800 2210
    JCM900
    100watt mosfet 2x12 combo
    Valvestate combo
    MG 50 watt combo
    DSL40c
    But my current go to, (and probably my all time favorite) is a 20 watt JCM800 Studio Series.

    Cheers.

    It's a Schecter custom S2 and goes pretty good mate.
    It has Seymour Duncan "Black Winter" pup's in it. They are soooo freaking hot! Blow away my EMG load Hellraiser, hands down!

    Nah! The Fender is Chinese garbage. I've hardly played it, and when I pulled it outta it's case for this photo, a tuning peg fell to pieces. :erk:
    I got sucked in by the Strat style headstock. The tone is not bad, I spose.
