quote:Originally posted by Bravus:Nono, the phrases 'too many' and 'guitars' are automatically oxymoronic!
quote: I have had up to 5 at a time
quote:- a classical (bought for about 50 bucks over 20 years ago and has had a broken neck, but still a very nice sound and getting warmer as it ages), the Atak (watch this space), the Iceman (which I already regret selling but I was super-broke), an old nylon string that I ruined by putting steel strings on it and an Ibanez fake of a Rickenbacker bass that I completely ruined by turning it into some sort of Gene Simmons monster beast!
quote: I also owned the world's shittiest SG copy, with a whammy that would send it out of tune in 15 seconds *even if you didn't touch it*, and a Fender Jaguar, which I regret selling even more.
quote:I've mainly had Peavey amps over the years, mainly because I was an 80s metal monster and their transistor crunch worked for that. I just have the classical and the Atak now, but want a really nice steel string acoustic-electric and a Les Paul. What I'd like now is a really tasty amp with dual 10s and chorus etc that I can play all of the above (except the classical) through, and some effects pedals. I want to play with infinite sustain: maybe, like Reeves Gabrels, I need a vibrator!

With the laquer checking, I doubt I get more than $1000.00Rockers don't like them because they refuse to distort and weigh a damned TON! Even with a 4" strap, you stand with one of these through a 45 minute set and you got you some back problems.I love the guitar... just don't use it. Did you see the one with the Bigsby? Guy says its factory! No fucking way Gibson would have put a Bigsby on a LPP!
quote: Judging from your other choices in gear, I figure it's a super-strat metal machine of some kind... probably with a strangely sculpted alder or basswood body with pointy projections and either dual humbuckers or a H-S-H configuration... at least a 15" board radius... am I warm?
