    Guitar players in The Pit?

    Let's get together and share some pics of our gear.

    Here's a couple of mine:

    My bedroom wall. (Wife approved!)

    Woot woot, I'm a rhythm guy. I've got a couple SGs (Standard and Studio 24-fret), a 70's FG-180 Yamaha acoustic, and a Gold Tone OM-800 mandolin. The Fender Princeton is the cheap solid state version and the 60's Kalamazoo Model 4 is cheaper still, but it was my first amp I ever purchased. Plus, it's got tremolo.

      But that Kalamazoo is a tube amp, right? How's it sound?

      No, just solid state.

        Here are my Ibanez cutout acoustic-electric and my Montana Backpacker. I've also got an Ovation that I bought nearly 40 years ago as a sophomore in high school. I've had many others over the years, but the one I miss is a Yamaha 12-string acoustic that I pawned many, many years ago and never got back. It had a nice crisp sound. Alas, I don't get to play much anymore due to neuropathy in my hands, but I still keep the Ibanez out in the stand just in case.

          It's got nice action and a good tone.

        I have a couple of guitars: a Fender 6 string acoustic and a Fender 12 string acoustic.

        I had a 1986 Anniversary Strat and Fender Pro-Reverb tube amp, but sold them both for down payment on a new house a few years ago.

        I play at playing guitar, but I certainly wouldn't consider myself a guitar player.

          Played in a variety of groups from about 1965, starting with garage bands and all the way up to a 9 piece fusion/dance band.
          List of equipment to long to list, but a brain abscess in 1996 left me paralyzed in the entire left side, but the time I rehabbed (6+months) I had lost whatever ability to play.
          Sold all but my Hoffam single cutaway acoustic.

          Some of my favorites were, a Vox Super Beatle amp, Gibson 335, Fender pre cbs Twin, Gibson ES 175D, add a host of Vox, Gretch and assorted brand axes over the years.

          Something I miss, but trying to be good takes way to much time for me, unfortunatly I wasn't one of them natural players.

                Nice to find this thread.

                Studio "A" in the Santa Cruz mountains cabin "The Ridge"

                Studio "B" - More professional, actually built as a studio - next door to the ridge cabin, but no where near as homey.

                The Boys - Played through a Johnson Amp for quite some time. Great amp, but they never really took off. Modeling amp, much like a Line 6.

                  Very nice studio space!

                scorched_porch Have you heard of that opinionated but very informative (and often right) guy on YouTube, Scott Grove (YouTube name "groovydjs")? I believe he is also a fan of the Johnson amps, and has made a similar statement to yours.

                I looked heavily at a Line 6 but didn't get it. I couldn't care less about the tube vs solid state catfight that players can get into, in fact I think it's silly. I say if it sounds good play the darn thing. It's like fighting over a diesel vs gas truck, or charcoal vs pellets. I currently own both a Beringer solid state modeler and a Blackstar tube. I don't sound any better on either!

                Nice pictures! #jealous
