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. :p

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 :p

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 !

foetus eagle 01-10-2014 10:06 PM

A real 62 strat or a reissue? Either way, pics would be very nice. Congrat's.

Another Oxted Eagle 02-10-2014 05:42 AM

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.

Another Oxted Eagle 02-10-2014 10:53 AM

PM me your email address foetus as I cant bl00dy upload pictures properly because I'm an idiot. Ive got some inside and out pictures that may interest you (of the guitar I mean)

foetus eagle 03-10-2014 12:14 PM

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

foetus eagle 03-10-2014 03:56 PM

:D 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 :D

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

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.

carlito 03-10-2014 04:52 PM

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.

foetus eagle 03-10-2014 04:55 PM

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

http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/b...ps78e15ce0.jpg

'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 :)

carlito 03-10-2014 04:59 PM

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.

foetus eagle 03-10-2014 05:02 PM

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.

anti-addick 03-10-2014 05:07 PM

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 love the bottom end a humbucker gives. Crunch heaven :D

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.
