Far too much stuff has come and gone over the last decade and a half. I'll get round to some pics one day. The current "best of", but by no means complete list: Rickenbacker 360 - absolutely gorgeous in Fireglo, and NOT one for those with large hands. The Rick "jangle" is legendary, and deservedly so. Proves that "Made in the USA" can still mean something to be proud of. Gibson 335 - aside from scratchy funk, I can't think of a style of guitar music this one couldn't do. Again, no photo could ever do justice to the beauty of this guitar. Fender Baja Telecaster - a lot like a cheap (but not inferior) version of a '51. HUGE comfortable neck, great pickups. Feels like it would probably be left standing among the cockroaches after a full-on nuclear war - if you play rough biker bars, then this is your axe. Beautiful neck pickup sound through a tube amp, as with pretty much any Fender guitar...love that Hendrix/SRV bluesy tone. Music Man Sterling...my first expensive bass, from 1996. Custom shop-quality birdseye/quilted/flamed maple neck. For RHCP/RATM-style riffing, there is no substitute. Fender Jazz Bass - 'nuff said. Squier Classic Vibe 1950s Precision Bass - the one with the single-coil pickup that notoriously destroyed speakers back in the '50s. Don't let the low price fool you; this is a hell of a lot of bass for the money and tests, both magazine and my own, can find little tonal difference between this and the Japanese Fender reissue model. Amps - been through quite a few. Good stuff has been mentioned elsewhere. I would like to give props to the Blackstar Dual distortion pedal. Supposedly valve (tube), but more importantly it can cover the range of British (i.e. Marshall) to American (Mesa/Boogie) voicing, and you can set two levels of OD/Distortion. Makes any half-decent amp sound like a tone king, and has become a permanent part of my setup.
