Boss Loop Station RC-5
Hammond AO-35 to convert
I grabbed a Fractal Audio FM3 in July.
Sitting on an invite for the Axe-Fx III, waiting for their year end sale, its gonna be that or a new Taylor 324CE acoustic for Xmas.
Well I just picked up the guitar again after covid hit and the yacht clubs shut down so...
There's this one ( plus two paf pros for it)
Then there's the Gretsch mic double jet
Then the DSL5CR
Then the pedals od, reverb, wah, delay and the looper, and a el823 tube for v1. ( still on its way). Oh and the power source for the pedals.
A new guitar is the goto after yacht club shutdownage for sure!
After the Rolex Yacht ..mas ..ter ..of course. Lol.
If I was yacht owner I'd be buying mij gretsches and Gibson 335/355 Crewing on a yacht costs nothing and when ur the tactician you get to boss rich idiots around, the only problem is I'm sick of rich idiots and they are sick of me.
And I'm way too old to knock off nightshift, go to the yacht, play mainsail upwind and spinnaker downwind. It isn't easy work
No, I would imagine not. Lots of ball bustin' it would seem.
GAS 2020 audit?? Yall still have money in 2020?
Just this lone purchase in 2020 other than strings, but...mon dieu! The neck on this axe is pure heaven. I love this guitar.
So I’m rethinking the G12-65 heritage - might go for Creambacks instead.
65 or 75 ... or AlNiCo 90. hm.
Well, in the end, went for Redbacks instead.
I may as well add this since I got a chance to get a decent photo. I likey this baby!
Bro , you need another JVM . Maybe a red one ? Lol Nice stuff . All of that amounts to more gear than I have ever owned.
I was jonesing for a cab sim but might settle for a amp sim with cabs . The Hotone bianary amp has all I could need , the bianary cab looks nice . No big stuff this year for me sadly. Earlier in the I got a Strat to build a Blackstar ID core 10 and recently a DOD 250 preamp.
I do! Lol. (I don't ...Lol.). Thanks, bro. I love those amps and they're responsible for a good amount being sold for them. Years of condensing, actually.
The nice thing is that we can use this sims today in so many flavors. I think you'd be good either way you go. I've heard some nice sims myself ...the Marshall stuff was pretty decent from what I recall. Sims keep wives happy too without the extra bulk ...that one can often be reminded of.
Wow! That Ibanez!
Amd a Telefunken U47. With leather...?
I have to think about what I got and look for pics.
Went on a pickup splurge this year.
1 Suhr SSV + SSV Plus set
1 Suhr Thornbucker set
2 DiMarzio PAF Master set
1 Duncan Alnico II HB set
1 Duncan Custom 59 Hybrid
1 Duncan JB
1 Duncan Jazz neck
...The guys in the crew have got a present for you.
One guitar and one amp: Fender Tele Deluxe Troublemaker II and Suhr PT15 IR.
It's definitely been a "retail therapy" year for me. Off the top of my head, I bought a Mesa TC-50 head and Recto compact 2x12, four Paul Reed Smiths (and just put money down on another), and maybe four or five pedals.
I'm an "Essential Worker" though, so I've been working my ass off all the way through the chaos. The money has been good, and I reinvested a bit into my sanity with some fun stuff.
Wasn't planning on it but this popped up on the local CL on Labor Day weekend. I'm partial to G&L and this is a factory prototype- not a big deal but it does have a documented history. Some guys at the factory gigged it and put a nice finish crack on it (near the control plate) during "testing". Price was right!
So far I like it but it could end up flipped after the pandemic; we'll see.
My first humbucker guitar since I was young- SD 59 in neck and JB in bridge. Nice p'ups.
From G&Ls old website-
"This guitar is our first completed, fully functional version of what became the ASAT Deluxe II in the Korina Collection. It was built using a three-piece Swamp Ash body as we didn’t want to use any of our limited supply of Korina for an engineering proof-of-concept prototype. The neck for this prototype had been used on another sample a few months earlier, though that guitar was later dismantled, so in the interest of time the team decided to re-use the neck for this prototype. At this point we still had not finalized design details for the ASAT Deluxe II, such as the teardrop pickguard or knobs. Since this is an engineering prototype it was particularly important give it a rigorous testing, so three of the G&L craftsmen took turns taking this guitar out to play gigs. As with any gigging instrument, dings and dents can occur, and this guitar sustained a bit of damage during one of the shows. There’s a finish crack and paint chip along the back edge, but it doesn’t do anything to compromise the tone and playability of this guitar."
