    Whenever I'd roll my Ampeg halfstack onstage, the soundguys always go "You're the guitarist? Why are you using a bass rig too?"



    And I had my Fender John5 Tele, Epi G400 and Washburn N1 always on me.



    I'm just fortunate that I know what I'm doing, and you gotta love most reactions of "That's an interesting choice of rig you have, but you sound really good!".



    If I can only play as well as most of you guise here...

      I've enjoyed the experience on "The New Myspace". I haven't had any issues at all honestly with it.

        Yet, if I see them playing telecasters, I assume they have their **************** together.










        im like that but with combo amps. even if it is high end stuff

              I played a show in gainesville back in may and the band before us rolled up on stage with a squier and a 6505+ 112 combo on one side, and a carvin and a splawn nitro with an ENGL 412 on the other side haha. Ill never forget that mismatch of hilarity lol. Ill also never forget the other guitarist in my band trying to lift the ENGL cab and failing lol. Turned out they sounded pretty good and the dude with the splawn and carvin was a pretty decent guitar player. When youre micing everything anyway, it really doesnt matter lol.



              I only ever played the mako and my ninja live. I got comments every single show about how great I sounded, how great my stage presence was, people asking about the mako, a couple of offers to buy the ninja, and people telling me I stole the show. Then I asked to rejoin the band last month, and the guitar player went off on this tirade about how he basically hates me lol.

                there used to be a website devoted to terrible band photos. I learned that standing in front of a brick wall is not only uncool, but also incredibly overdone. So when I see a pic of a band that does that...I immediately think they're amatuers. When it comes to seeing gear on stage I used to think "man, I have better gear than them, they must blow"...nowadays I think "Damn, I spent so much time chasing gear/tone I never actually got out and played. This guy's using a line6 and a crate guitar, sounds terrible, but I can't knock it too much because he's the one on stage...meh"





                edit: found the website

                    I feel the same way about Epiphone SGs and LPs. Epi SG, I brace for suck. Epi LP, and I'm like "Oh, well, certainly they'd have a Gibson LP if they had the money. Wonder how they sound?"




                    I have an Epi LP.



                    It has a lot of emotional attachment for me, but if I had the dough, I'd also have a Gibson LP as well.

                      Right?



                      I look at gear, but I don't judge anyone because of it.

                          it's human nature, we like to judge and categorize things.

                            yeah i see most of the Squier Strats and import Jacksons thru like a Line 6 112 combo and pretty much brace for the sonic raep that's coming. i'm usually always right. it's sad bc sometimes you have the 2nd guitard with a much nicer rig than the singer yet he's buried just like the bass so all you hear is SS bees... the last show we had the 2nd/lead player had a NICE Custom 22 in trans burgundy through an AC30 combo and yeah he basically wasn't even in the mix. stupid. singer had a made at home strat through some sorta Line 6 head and 212 cab. awful racket.

                                I'm way worse at judging by how the actual band looks vs what gear they have..



                                Plaid shirts/tighter jeans than my girl/trendy haircut = Hipster doofus - It doesn't even matter if they sound "good"..I pretty much can't stand these people.



                                T-shirts/Jeans - Bro's/Down to earth, Spiked hair/leather - Wannabe 80's wankers, etc..
