For the first time in my life, I am really happy with my tone. I got back into the older analog effects recently. Right now I am playing '79 Gibson 335 (custom lefty)>Boss CS2>dunlop crybaby>Boss EQ>Korg Ax1G>analogman silver TS9>arion octave>Boss DD5 delay>ampeg superjet 12t 50w.
The analogman ts9 is just cream. I can't say enough about it. I also love my DD5 cause it has tap tempo.
What are y'all playin?

I've got a black Fender Squier Affinity Stratocaster with a white pickguard and an ebony fretboard. I've got a 25 watt Behringer Modeling Amp (Not a bad little amp). My acoustic is a single cutaway dreadnought S101 guitar. I took a chance and won it on ebay for $35! dollars plus shipping. Best move I ever made. The guitar is a dream to play with great action. I'm going to need an acoustic soundhole pickup and probably an amp with greater wattage once the band I'm in graduates to playing gigs out in the world.

Also fairly new to guitars (3 yrs) I play a Washburn WI-64DL through a Roland Cube 30...just sweet as it is...no pedals or efx, just the clean driving tone. I also picked up a Strat yesterday to get the blues sound I've craved for a while. And for the soul of any musician (IMO) I have a Fender GC acoustic with a beautiful midnight blue finish...

Been playing since I was 11.. so 6 years this June! :shock:

My old guitar (Fender Strat) was stolen two years ago, so I had to settle for a Squire Strat (fucking sucks... but at least it works). My brother and I want to buy a real old Telecaster from our friend's brother, I have to test it out before we buy it, but from just fooling around with it, I really like it.

I started with a Squier Bullet (strat) when I was in 7th grade. Still have that baby, use it mostly in open tuning for slide and stuff. Currtently and have been using an Ibanez Artist Deluxe for about 8 years

OK, I'll play... ;)

Gibson Les Paul Standard

Traynor YVC40WR amp (great, inexpensive tube combo)

And I'll use various combinations of the following

Ernie Ball volume pedal
Boss TU-2 tuner
Vox 847 Wah
Tubeworks Blue Tube overdrive
Ibanez DE-7 Delay - getting rid of it, and getting:
EHX Deluxe Memory Man Delay

Also use a cheap Washburn acoustic-electric, and a cheaper ($60 new!) lap steel which I just purchased and barely know how to use.

OK, here is what I'm using now:

Black Tele(mim) not sure of year
Stagnitto 00 size Mahogony flat-top
Dannnelectro Daddy-O overdrive pedal
Aria Compressor pedal

I play the Tele thru a '83 Peavey Classic VTX
65w 2x12. Ridiculously LOUD amp, but WTH.

I use a Roctron Rampage R122C for the acoustic - only on the clean channel. This amp has chorus, which is nice for acoustic. It also has a killer Drive ch, but not for acoustic! feedback!

The Stagnitto is a custom made 00 size, Mahogony back/sides, spruce top. This guitar is amazing. Always in tune!Looks like a little Martin, but sounds way better than any Martin I have ever played. The guy makes them as a hobby!!!

I also have a Gibson SG "Beauty"(3 HB) that is on lay-way. I should have it paid off by summer. Can't wait!

I play mostly folk, pop and blues. Been practising for about 30 yrs. and I might learn to play someday :roll:

Awesome site. Don't worry about too much. Learn your instrument first. Most of your tone comes from your fingers. As your addiction takes hold, you will part with more money on gear... :smile:

my first post here, so i wanted to go ahead and post my rig. here it goes.

Mexican Fender strat w/ carvin twinblade humbuckers
bridge and middle pickups coil tap and jerry's effects loop with unity gain buffer.

the effects loop goes to a GCX audio switcher for the switching of the effects. which are:

mutron III
phase 100 script
distortion+ script
boss OC-2
mxr analog delay
DIY tubescreamer (handmade by me)
ADA 2 fx (digital delay/chorus/flanger)
Kenwood Quadrixer(spring reverb)

thru a
behringer V-Amp Pro preamp(i use the blackface setting)
thru a
GAS Son Of Ampzilla amplifier
to
3- 10" old speakers(this is the next upgrade)

a picture without the quadrixer can be seen here.
