Crystal Palace guitars

So after our extremely poor performance yesterday I though I'd just post a couple of pictures of the guitars I have recently bought. I think those of you who have guitars of your own or just like music might appreciate them more than other people I know. Would love to hear your opinions on them.....

Nice colour choices, are they both Japanese?
I play a telecaster, so stuff like active pickups and Floyd Rose's bewilder me. Handsome looking axes though.

Yea both made in Japan as I think all ESP's are (not sure about the LTD version though). Love the Floyd Rose. Makes the guitar that bit more dynamic and give you the option of dive bombs

I'll upload some pictures later but I bought a couple of beauties today.

I've come into a bit of cash and convinced the mrs that they would be good investments !

1974 Gibson Les Paul Signature Semi Acoustic and a 1962 Fender Strat.

I've owned and played loads of Strats over the years but this one with a bit of dirt and volume just puts a huge stupid grin on my face !

Tis a real one , one of the first non slab boards so a late 62.
Got refinished in the 70s but other than that it's all original and a bit worn in places.
It honestly sounds amazing and that isn't expectation bias at work !

I'll upload some photos tonight when I get home from work.

Thanks for the pics AOE. That is one beautiful strat you've got there.

Here's my humble set up...

Wow Foetus, that amp looks awesome and I do love a Tele ! Some lovely pedals too especially the Blue Sky. You must have very understanding/deaf neighbours

Cheers AOE.

The Falcon has a Tone King Iron Man attenuator built in, you can still get great tone at very low volumes - one of the big selling points for me.

I bet you can get some beautiful tones from that setup! Here's my main gear:









I wish I had the time to play more often. The Squier strat is a Vintage Modified with 'Duncan designed' pickups. It is a fantastic guitar to play, hard to believe it cost me less than £250 new. The Epi Les Paul and Ibanez RG470 I've had for more than 10 years. I wouldn't part with either of them. Still have the Marshall too, a VS100R. I'm not one for changing

That's probably a matter of opinion, but I do have some fun with it

That's some nice guitar options you've got there Carlito. Squiers are just exceptional value these days, and great guitars in their own right.
I tried an Ibanez like that once and was really surprised at how much I liked it, skinny neck and all, very comfy.

I need to get some more humbuckers in my life.

Thanks FE. The Ibanez does have a slim neck and inspires confidence when being played. It has Dimarzio Air Norton and Tone Zone pickups in the neck and bridge which can sound a bit Vai/Satriani but are very versatile especially in conjunction with the middle single coil.

It's about time we had a decent guitar thread on here. In that spirit, here is a bit more of my stuff...

To view the link you have to Register or Login

'96 American Lone Star strat, with a knackered truss rod. Looking at importing a neck from Warmoth for this as I really like the metallic teal finish. Possibly solid rosewood, or roasted maple with stainless steel frets.

German Warwick Corvette. Amazing unfinished Ovangkol / Wenge neck. Sadly, I am a shit bass player.


And more tele...

Nice, the HSH confuguration is hard to beat. I'm seriously thinking about it for my strat. I always end up on the bridge SD Pearly Gates+ eventually. Having a humbucker in the neck too can only make things more awesome

I think I'm due a Tele. You haven't made that any easier for me! Beautiful guitar. Hope you get the Strat sorted, looks a beauty.

Everyone needs a tele, you know it makes sense! I bought the strat as an ongoing project, the nasty pearloid pick guard really has to go.

Well I can't match those wonderful colours by the OP. Unfortunately it's all 'a bit Wolves' but at least I have my rug




I replaced my old Peavey with an Engl Screamer 50, it's fantastic

I bet it is, heard fantastic things about Engl. Your Peavey takes me back to when I had a Laney Linebacker amp. They were very similar.
