Hopefully that upload worked.

Its my 62 strat, a 74 Les Paul signature semi, a 93 telecaster and a new Gretsch.

Before you ask, I am a crap guitarist with a very understanding wife. :p

Handsome collection AOE. You've got every option covered there guitar-wise. Nice Chesterfield too.

A long time since I heard anyone mention the Linebacker. It used to be incredibly popular with my school mates and me. We made a stack of guitar and bass combos at one point.

I still have the bass amp version collecting spiders and dust in the garage!

Will see if I can get a decent pic of my Rickenbacker 330 up online for you all.

Yes please. As a fan of the Jam they are one of my faves. As for the Laney, I sold it to a mate in the late 90's who still uses it.

Yeah the Peavey has done well and when I replace him I decided that rather than leave him sulking in the garage I would give him life by giving him away on Gumtree for nothing. I hope that he is now screaming out some awesome tones or helping somebody to learn to play.

Currently I play a Sterling Axis3 through a Marshal cfx15: purely bedroom stuff really.

The Axis 3 has split coil humbuckers so I can get strat sounds or a thicker rock crunch.

I'm trying to convince Mrs FF to let me get a better amp (I'm looking at a Vox vt50).

Another Oxted Eagle 04-10-2014 05:13 AM

Nice looking Geeter Hugh , reminds me of the Wolfgang models.

I looked at a VT recently as I wanted a more quiet amp for home use than my Jet City valve. It was nice but didn't sound as good to me as the Blackstar i.d..

If you wanted a true valve amp without the modding the Laney cub is really hard to beat for the cash too. I had one of those until my son pilfered it for his room.

If you get a chance to try either one I think you'll be impressed, you can even choose which valves the amp is going to mimic on the Blackstar which is very cool.

At the risk of sounding nerdy, it should remind you of the Wolfgang because it's the original Wolfgang. In 1991, coincidentally at the same time Eddie van Halen's son Wolfgang was born, Eddie signed with Ernie Ball/Music Man/Sterling and they made the first Wolfgang guitar, though it was called the Eddie van Halen Signature guitar. When he went to Peavey in 1996, they manufactured the same style of guitar and that's when it was given the Wolfgang name. Meanwhile, EB continued to make the guitar too but renamed it the Axis. Mine is the Axis sub (the equivalent of an Epiphone Les Paul or Squier Tele).

Ironically, I'm not a big van Halen fan.

Nice Axis hughff, those are great looking guitars. I've been intrigued by the Music Man Albert Lee for some time, specifically the HH version with rosewood neck.

carlito 04-10-2014 01:37 PM

They're great looking guitars, I'd love a wolfgang with a d-tuna. I played one once, lovely necks.

Another Oxted Eagle 04-10-2014 05:56 PM

I picked up a '72 telecaster thinline today which is a bit beaten up but plays really nicely. I'll upload a photo later when I've finished my penance of cooking dinner :-)

foetus eagle 04-10-2014 06:04 PM

Good work, you're on a roll.

Another Oxted Eagle 04-10-2014 06:21 PM

You can't beat a good mid life crisis :-)

anti-addick 04-10-2014 07:17 PM

No such thing mate.

Blackstar ID's are great bang for buck. The only reason i didn't go for one was because they are sooooo versatile they are great for experimenting with sounds - all of those valves and effects before you even plug in a pedal - but I already know the kind of sounds I want to play, which tbf are pretty mainstream, a touch of OD to harsh distortion with reverb, sometimes fuzz, all on a H-S-H guitar and that's about it. I like it simple and the Engl does it for me.

Good to see this thread picking up in pace. Great to see all these rigs as well as guitars. The more the merrier! Looks like many of you have gone for a more "old skool" set up based on the kits I see here. Not too much modern equipment which I think is great as the expanse of musical prowess here is pretty vast :)

ChuckMcBalls 06-10-2014 03:36 PM

Might be blasphemous I know, but I've always loved the look and feel of a Telecaster but they were not traditionally good for my music tastes (heavier rock/metal).

Cue me seeing this on my guitar hunt and I decided to pick it up. Modern look to it, plays great and still retains some of that Telecaster charm (others may disagree but Humbuckers for the win!).

Hummers on a Tele are just wrong.
