This is my main guitar and my only electric one for now (Damn slow mail I want my new baritone now!)

It´s an Epiphone Les Paul Standard painted by an artist friend of mine. I´d like to paint it myself, but suck at painting and the job my friend did is so excellent. Overcoats and everything.
I have found out I´m pretty picky on humbuckers, but fond on all kinds of singles so I removed the terrible epi hums and got myself two gibson p94s, p90s in humbucker size. No other mods, except turning the pick up selector switch to move horizontally so I don´t switch it by accident all the time.

What I´d like to do is make a kill switch and booster circuit inside it or maybe even a tremolo, if it´ll fit. I don´t really care about the acoustics so maybe I´ll just hollow it out and jam all sorts of crap in there, haha! Maybe a whammy bar? This guitar is too good sounding to have any less options than that in tonal control. Also one of my dreams is another pickup at the head, removable. And maybe some curcuit bending stuff that reacts with the strings. And peep somewhere? Or http://www.analoguehaven.com/hiwatt/echotheremin/ somewhere?
What a stupid set of dreams

My favourite sound is from the neck pickup, tone almost at full treble cause it´s kinda bassey.

I´ll get a pic of my new guitar when I get it, it´s a gretsch superjet baritone and it´s gonna be awesome through fuzzes. :p

That's acouple of them, I also have 3 different telecasters! OF course after I reached this level of guitar overload, somehow I became the drummer, and I never get to play them :???:

Sperzels,Bill Lawrence L-500XL Humbucker,bone nut,graphite saddles.

I also have a Fernandes Revolver and LTD F-200 sitting in their cases in the closet, as well as another Fernandes Revolver in storage.

Heavily modified guitar, however maintaining stock look...

- Changed tuning machines for locking Sperzels
- GraphTech TremNut
- GraphTech FerraGlide saddles
- Upsized the strings to 11's

Smart choices! :thumb:
Makes a hell of a lot of difference.

I need to get some new pics of my gear. I've added a few guitars since this older photo:

But here’s my rig as it stands.[/size]


This cutie is a Larrivée, I can’t remember the model number. But she’s got a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, all solid. She’s wearing 13. gauge strings, so she’s a bit hard to handle, but she sounds great, especially recorded.


The Staccocasters! On the left, a G&L Legacy Special, with homemade “Fuck You” string dampener, Schaller machineheads, rosewood fingerboard, hard maple neck and swamp ash body. Pickups are a Seymor Duncan Lil’ 59, a Lace Sensor Silver and a Seymour Duncan Lil’ JB. Tremolo and electronics are G&L standard.

The green one I put together myself from bits and pieces. Maple neck and fingerboard (Slinky) Gotoh, Joe Barden clone pickups (I ripped them of the G&L) and a clone of the G&L electronic passive treble and bass system which by now is like second nature to me. (I cannot for the life of me play a Les Paul). Bridge is a Kahler tremolo, big fucker! They sound totally different. Still, when I gets me some dosh I want to get an SG or some other set neck.


Uhhh, my baby. A Mesa Boogie Nomad 55, modded with TAD Tonebone Pentodes to run in Class A at 15 watts, which allows me to sound REALLY loud but without the bleeding ears and other associated symptoms.

I've left out the pedal board cuz I was quite different when I took those pics, (there's one in the Flickr page anyways but I'll give you a rundown on how it stands now... Duncan loaded G&L Legacy Special or Homemade Frankestrat into…. EF 13 TBD (With a Dano T-bone Distortion and a Dano Fish and Chips EQ in the loop) Into and EH HOG synth (With footswitch and exp pedal) Into a Crybaby 535, into a Homebrew CBR Comp, into a Hombrew Germania, into a Jacques Tube Blower… From that we go to the input of My Boogie Nomad 55... Out of the loop we go into a Ibanez RC 99 rotary Chorus (fucking brilliant pedal), a Line 6 mm4 with exp pedal, and a DL4 with exp pedal too!!! And yes, I can already make beautiful or ugly music (as I see fit) with what I’0ve got… isn't that great!!!!

Sun Jun 17, 2007 10:05 pm

Wow! I'm jealous of such gears!! (U kNo HU U R!! XP)


My main guit!! Epiphone SG all stock; Stays in tune; plays well; won't squeal with highgain like my other guitars of past (couple LP copies; Epip and Vantage)!!!! :thumb:

Repleat with homebrew Counter Cosby sticker and hanging out with his new best friend the AR GZ!!! :rock:

i tend to use a lotta diff stuff and constantly switch up my guitars but there are some things that are mainstays and this six string fender mustang bass is one of those things.

i picked it up on the road somewhere...bought it from the (at the time) pixies road manager, who in turn bought it with kim deal in mind. however they broke up before he got in touch with her and i swooped in and took advantage.

this little bass just freaks people out with it's uber-huge sound. duncan broadcaster in the bridge, stock mustang guitar p.u. in the center. tuned in the bass register, although could be set up for the baritone reg with dif gauge strings and a set up.

That is the most interesting guitar I´ve seen in many many days or hours.
If it´s in the bass register, it means the low E is how many octaves from a the low E of a bass? One or two?

Here she is

Thu Jun 21, 2007 5:40 pm

Haize... she's really pretty up close. Has this Big Daddy Roth metalflake thing going.
