Since a lot of us seem to play some instrument, here's a thread to "show off your wares". Here's a couple of my guitars:



The Gibson SG and the Dimebag guitars in the background are among my faves and great for distorted heavy music, and the Ibanez, while a cheaper model, has a very nice round clean sound.

Is that Dimebag guitar as expensive in Europe as over here? Dang....
 
Nice trio of guitars. I've always though SGs look great, I just couldn't play them myself...the necks just don't feel right to this strat player.

As it happens, it's not even my amp, but if you think it's sexy, I better get one myself. ;-) The guitars are backwards, since I'm a leftie.

The SG's a dream to play. I've played a couple of Strats (though I don't own any - but I'd like one), and I like those, too. I like the challenge of having to play different guitars, because I think that having to adapt to the instrument wil constribute to the development of versatility in the guitar player. I bought the Dimebag guitar in Germany where it's cheaper than in Denmark, so it wasn't too expensive. But it wasn't super cheap either ;-) It's got a great punch to it. I've tuned it in a B, and it sounds mean :-)

I have a Parker Fly which I payed a hell of a lot of money for but its like playing in butter so it was totally worth it. I actually dont know the exact model or year simply because I never cared for such things. I tried it and it felt right so I bought it. I used to have a BC Rich Warlock and before that a cheap strat copy. Im trying to find a picture of my Parker Fly but Ive only found this one that looks similar but a bit more modern:

Relatively inexpensive guitar but it plays well and I love it's look...my main electric. My main (acoustic) guitar is shown in the "Wish Me Well" Thread.
 
My other electrics are a Standard Strat and and way back when a Peavey Tracer...I'll have to find a pic of that one.

rrrrrhhhhhhhh (sorry, I had to express my reaction in Danish). I've seen them around, but I've never played them. How much did you pay for it, if one might ask?

I was told it cost 30.000 dkr. from new at the time but I purchased mine used for 15.000 dkr. It takes a bit of time getting used to playing on because the volume control is placed a little too high for my taste but otherwise its an excellent guitar. Great Active amps and this one is never out of tune no matter how much you abuse the vibrato arm. Its not the most "heavy metal" guitar in the world but I didnt purchase it to play metal or to "look" metal. My old BC Rich Warlock more than does that for meLOL. Boy that one sure is ugly.

Ulgy can be charming, too ;-)

I almost bought a used '75 LH Les Paul a couple of years ago whose price was set at 28.000 dkr, but I got cold feed because the previous owner had been tinkering with the electronics.

No great photos I'm afraid, the camera I have on hand blows. You can find much better pics of my instruments on the internet, but I'm posting up mine for the sake of it heh.



Ibanez RG 1527 in Royal Blue.
The following modifications have been done:
Stock pickups replaced with Dimarzo Blaze Neck and Bridge, replaced stock pots with CTS pots, replaced volume and tone knob, locking stud tremolo mod (keeps trem more stable, but I hardly use the trem anyway) and Schaller Strap Lock buttons



1999 Ibanez RG 7421 in Cherry Fudge
Replaced stock pickups with Seymour Duncan Blackout AHB-1 7 string set



Line 6 POD X3 Live



Bugera 333XL 120 watt tube amp. Has 4 EL34s in the power amp, not sure what brand the tubes are though. 3 Channels, and the clean channel is unusually good for a high gain amp.
It sounds great at relatively low volumes too, which is a major bonus , because it means I play record at home without killing my neighbors
It's essentially a copy of the Peavey JSX, for a much cheaper price, but it arguably sounds just as good.
Cabinet is a Harley Benton 2x12 loaded with Celeston V30 speakers.



My Shure SM-57 for mic-ing my amp up for recording. Got it used, but it was in mint condition. Definitely a mic that lives up to the hype

4 mid toms, 6 in total actually. I bought the kit as it is (without cymbals) from a guy called Charlie MacKenzie who was playing with NWOBHM band Samson at the time. I think he'd bought it with the 2 kick drums, 2 larger hanging toms and the 16" floor tom and added the other 3. The 18" floor tom has different legs to the 16".
 
I'm probably going to sell it this summer as I haven't played for 8 years. Cry  I keep getting the urge to play again but if I do I'll want something smaller.

This Tokai Les Paul is my number one guitar for recording, I get pretty good distorted sounds out of it. I don't really play it that much apart from recording. That acoustic Yamaha is a pretty new family member, I should play it more to get the feel of it.



The Squier Strat on the right was my very first guitar ever, I've been dreaming of arming it with a humbucker and making it my punk axe, but so far I've been too lazy and poor for it. My fiance won the Tokai Strat on the left from a rock mag poll a while ago and since then that has been my guitar of choice for general strumming and composing. I'll probably do my first recordings with it soon. Great touch, pretty good sound. There you also see my amps, I've got no pedals, just those. Should re-string the classical guitar one day and bring it back from the graveyard behind the amp wall.



There's my trusted bass with his tattoos and my second guitar, Epiphone Les Paul. Some electronics of it have been messed up so that the bridge pick up doesn't work anymore, otherwise a good quitar I miss using.



My favorite toy, Roland TD9-KX.

My main axe: ESP F250


My backup axe is a Strat knockoff.

My main bass: Ibanez EDA-905 fretless


It was originally a fretted bass but was defretted.  My backup bass is a Fender Jazz Standard knockoff.

I'll be acquiring my next guitar within the next few months (as soon as I have enough money for it) and it will be a custom-built 9-string guitar (made by a professional, not me).  Don't worry, I'll put pictures up as soon as I get it. Cool

Pearl Export kit (one floor tom from an old set, but it sounds good), Paiste Alpha symbals (+ Wuhan chinas). Don't mind the additional bass drum + toms, they are just there for random effects (e.g. lighter bass kicks) and most importantly, to hold my metronome. ;-) The whole setup isn't a beauty, but practical to play.

This guitar is an absolute piece of shit. Bought it off a friend for 2.50!!! And there was 40p in the case lol. Have no idea why the head has clearly been sawed in half (though he denies it) and it has been painted... yes... painted... But whatever, for 2.50 I basically use it for spare parts and 'experiment' with the electrical stuff without ruining one of my main guitars.

The Dano is a great blues and classic rock guitar.  It's fairly cheap, but has wonderful tones courtesy of those lipstick pickups.
However, I put some flatwound strings on it, and it's perfect for jazz now - which is what I use it for

Yeah, I virtually swim in Danelectro guitars in certain instrument stores, and they are pretty cheap, so I was wondering if they're any good.

Posted By: Triceratopsoil
Date Posted: 19 Dec 2010 at 3:03pm
the reason they are so cheap is that the body is a plywood frame covered in masonite, and they're made in Korea.

Jimmy page used to use one for slide guitar (for example, on In My Time of Dying)
-that would be one of the originals from the 50s; right now the company is in their 2nd resurrection (they had a series of reissues in the 80s or 90s IIRC).  These new ones - or at least, if you get one of the "Pro" models - are a little higher end than the old ones.  No more wobbly wooden bridge, the pickups are slightly higher output, the tuners are a bit better, etc.

Just a nice, fairly cheap Squier by Fender acoustic guitar. Perfect for the stuff I play, lovely sound.

1984/85 Carvin DC160T (I ordered it around Thanksgiving '84, got it 1st week of '85)
Bridge pickup started squealing badly about a year ago, so I had a set of BG (Bryan Gunsher) Darkbuckers put in....sounds great!


The black pickups are the new ones:

'03 musicyo USA Steinberger GM4S. Very low action, stays in-tune forever.

'07 Carvin CT6

I just picked up a Squier Vintage Modified Fretless Jazz Bass.  Low end instrument I suppose, but it sounds pretty cool and I've heard others in video get a great sound out of it.

It plays very very nicely, action is as good as my old Carvin and my Steinberger. I'm gonna sell my quilted top newer Carvin, this Reverend plays better.
 
Here's Sylosis playing Reverend Sensei's:

Pretty instrument.  Schecters have really nice necks, almost bought one (ended up with an LTD instead)

I deleted that extra post for you

Thank you! Please do so.. I'm not very familiar with forum yet. Thankfully it works finally. Yes, the neck is thin and fit my hands well. And I like its vintage style.

I love Parker guitar too. I saw Jonas has one..jealous. As a designer, the form of Parker guitar it is just perfect!

Nice looking guitar, great vintage look.

Thank you, Unitorn. I have original ideas but I have a hard time to make them to be mature, practical, and rigorous.

I've bought a few more since the last one I posted.

Reverend Stu D. Baker

Reverend's own p90 pickups, 24.75" scale

I actually got to meet the owner of Reverend Guitars, Ken Haas. Very cool guy.


ESP LTD EC-1000 ET

this guitar is equipped with an Evertune bridge. Stays in tune no matter what…neck can change, strings get old…you can literally pick the guitar up by the strings and shake it hard, if the bridge doesn't rip away from the guitar ( Tongue ) it's still in tune.

1986 Carvin V220…the guitars that Craig Chaquico from Jefferson Starship used to play

this one has a Kahler Flyer tremolo that someone put heavier springs in, stays in tune really well.
the wood is Hawaiian Koa, my favorite guitar wood Smile
