I'm a trip... ok... no worries. And I'm not being argumentative. If everyone here is truly into guitars and tone then it's the same as old baseball guys saying who was better Mantle or Maris. You know it's part of it.... and please see previous post... yes some old SG's do rock ... but look.... the tone of the posts (no pun intended) began as posting the goodies. It started off with with some great stuff... and old Fender Esquire, the Gibson, there's a bad-ass old Tweed in there... and then it went all to hell. Posting a pic of five series-linked Boss pedals in your "pedalboard"? Shall we go over to men's clothing and post a pic a my new polyester suit from G2000 and see if it doesn't get flamed nuclear?? well that's what I was saying.... I love it when dudes rock a Jackson into a solid-state Crate amp and think it's the shit... I trust your real gear & we can nit-pick but I have tons of stuff. A few examples: Some of the guitars: Taylor 614 GA(pre-2000 before they cheaped out!), Pawar Prestige TOTC one-off, vintage & rare model G&L tele.... some amps: Miller Audio Design custom Tweed, Dr. Z Carmen Ghia... Effects: Teese, ZVex, Moog, Fulltone, Lovetone,... etc. I definitely see where you are coming from and I agree with some of it, but not all. I guess reading your posts earlier I thought you were about to list that you played Gustavssons, D'Pergo's, Two Rock amps, Komet amps, Landgraff pedals, and other high end stuff. I guess I'm a little let down by your list. Not saying it's bad stuff. I actually have owned some of the stuff in your list. And it is great, but not super high end like I was expecting. My pedal board consists of boutique and mass produces gear and I think it sounds great.
