      If you have a 5 cylinder, you don't need a stereo.

      What is a Homologation car you ask?

      My beloved pedal assortment.

      I can make about any noise/sound you'd like (or not) to hear.
      I also love plugging straight into an amp from time to time as well.
      I have an early 52' reissue tele that I play most.
      I also have an 82' American Strat (from the lean years of Fender).
      My recent guitar purchase was an Agile Double Cut-away LP knockoff.
      Any guitar dudes out there should check them out, pretty awesome guitars for Korean made, low-price reps.
      As for amps I have a 1964 Guild Thunder 1 that has 'that' sound to it that you can't reproduce with newer amps.
      My big amp is a 212 Hot Rod Deville that I got a tube burner attenuator for so I can turn it way way up to saturate the tubes and not get the way way up volume that comes with it.
      My bands practice space is a cornucopia of stuff, though, so I actually play through about anything you could rattle off.
      I find it makes a better musician to have to switch instruments and gear at a moments notice...many of us get too comfortable with 'our' stuff and blame indecent sounds on our equipment not being right or "I've never played through that before."
      The more variety you play through the better you get overall...not to mention a good ear for tonal differentiation.

      didn't this thread just happen?
      Heads: (soon to be expanded on either Marshall Vintage Modern or used Hughes and Kettner tri-amp)


      Cab not pictured... Marshall Mode Four over sized... sounds like a Mesa over sized but runs at 16ohms... lil cleaner sounding than a mesa i thought i played them side by side...
      Guitars:


      (if anyone wants to ask what they are i can list em out if wanted)
      and a lil bigger i've been cleaning up...
      a 1939 Gibson GA-9 amp

      thanks bro! yeah mine is a 61 reissue but its actually a 1991 guitar.
      as for the middle pickup issue, i agree with it getting in the way but i worked out a sweet "mod" to drop it into the body so its not in the way at all now. i will post my method soon along with a les paul "short shifter" mod for the PU switch. im gonna do a "my gibson mods" thread soon with detailed pix so keep an eye out.

      [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] but i gotta ask... do you ever use the middle pickup or was it reall just for the "look" cause i agree they look fantastic! cause if you actually use it droping the magnets that far away from the strings is really gonna mess with the way it sounds cause all pickups are are electric passive magnets that pickup the frequency the string are vibrating at so the further the magnets the harder the time it will have sensing the frequency

      no i dont use the middle one on a regular basis at all. i dont use the neck pickup either. i play in a heavy-gain band and i always have it on the treble pickup turned all the way up. full bright saturation.
      i have used the middle pickup at home just messing around and playing blues or whatever. having the middle pickup further away doesnt change anything frequency-wise, it just makes the sound less pronounced than the others.
      i have the treble pickup screwed up as close to the strings as possible to get a bright full tone out of it, which is what i mainly use. the neck pickup is a sweet warm round bluesy sound thats great for jazz or whatever. and the middle one is a mixture of both. all 3 pickups are gibson 57PAFs, they are clean and warm sounding, and good for all types of music.
      the best sound i have found for my band and tone is using my les paul classic which has a 500T pickup in the bridge- this pickup is very "hot" and saturated, and played thru a boogie around 70% gain will produce crushing tone. so ive got a little of everything
      PS click the link in my sig and you can hear the SG in action.

      That's really good stuff. Nice looking vinyl too.
      I saw your last myspace update...when do you expect the new songs up?
      P.S. Your singer sounds a lot like the guy from VGS.

      First, raycer... that is officially my favorite guitar ever. My friend has one (sans piezo), and I've yet to play anything I liked more.
      As for my stuff. I'm a keyboardist first, but I do enjoy guitar as well.

      Roland Juno-G. Works pretty nicely. I'd love to replace it with a Fantom-G eventually, though.

      -Peavey KB3 keyboard amp... run everything through that.
      - ESP MH-400
      - Boss Metalzone
      - Crybaby (not pictured)
      (all of those going into the keyboard adding some tape echo, compressor, reverb, chorus, then into the KB3)
      - Art and Lutherie acoustic (dirt cheap, but oddly good)
      - Not pictured, Fender Highway 1 Fat Strat
      I used to have a dedicated guitar amp (Peavey Classic 30)... but I traded it for the KB3. I never play guitar live anyway. And honestly, for metal, the metalzone into the keyboard sounds better I needed the kb3 for band practices... won't be using it live, though. That's what the venue's PA is for.
