Right now I am playing more jazz than anything else, but my origins are all over the place: punk/country/alt/blues/rock/bill frisell noodling, even some classical thrown in.

I like to think that I have a distinctive style, although I should be better based on how much time I have put into it! I can't play as much as I like right now.

I collected a lot of nice gear over the years, although I pared down a few years back to just some core gear that I felt I couldn't replace if I sold it off. So I might have some useful first hand knowledge to share from time to time.

At any rate, nice to find this thread. I usually don't venture out of SWD....

It is the soundtrack of my home drinking.

necrobump here but I thought I would read from the start of the thread and came across this. That is quite a story, and that is an awesome Esquire -- I saw the pic.

You still have it?

The dealer, who had it on his table, had just driven in from Mississippi with it having just bought it off the original owners widow. Apparently he played it every night and when the old guy died the first thing she did was sell it. She wanted to get rid of it! No sentimental value whatsoever!!! Anyway I loved it and asked Seymor what he thought of it. He said"If you don't buy it I will". Afterwards he took me back to his room where he brought out the famous Jeff Beck Yardbirds Esquire that Jeff had given him (It was there for a photo shoot). We compared the sound and honestly, they both sounded like the same damn geetar, This one is a real dream. The funny thing though is that non guitar players all think that it must be the cheapest guitar in my collection because it is so plain and worn

That is a nice setup AC, do you ever go just go guitar--fuzzbox--amp?
I use mine for ambient rock and circa survive style stuff. Also I tour with a modern praise and worship band sometimes because it pays pretty well and the people are nice to work with.

I do have a smaller board that I actually gig with a lot now, it has a drive, a delay and a reverb. But no, I couldn't just go with a single drive pedal at a gig.

Yep, still have it. It is resting against a vintage tweed Vibrolux about 8 feet from me.

Damn.

if it's in that neighborhood, there's a decent chance that it's coming from the Manhattan School of Music, which is cool.


Origen and I were eyeing a '66 Deluxe Reverb last week that somebody put up for $800 (they're worth at least twice that). It's gone, and we suck.

If my Casino had sold in time, I would have bought it.
