  • The old desert island fantasy

    Say you can only keep one axe, one amp, one pedal, what is really essential to your playing style?

    Yamaha SG
    Laney LC15

    don't need any pedals.

      My old '67 Super Reverb, my '81 Strat, and my Boss ME-50.

        Desert island? Well then I will take a Hamer Duotone for the guitar, a super fancy preamp (even my Pod X3 would be fine, but maybe an AxeFX since we're fantasizing), and a nice PA system for the "amp."

        But really, I'm ok with my AC30 and any of my guitars (we'll go with my 339) and an overdrive pedal.

          The nicest Line 6 Variax model they make.

          Whatever amp has the most built-in effects and amp modeling with the best sound quality.

          Wah pedal. :cattongue:

            My custom Suhr Set Neck Modern

            My Dr. Z MAZ 38 Studio Deluxe

            My Fulltone Fulldrive 2


            Tempted to say an Axe FX 2 or Kemper instead of the Dr. Z, but not having played either it's hard to commit.

          les paul.  marshall.  maybe a delay pedal (since i could crank the **************** out of a marshall on a desert island to get distortion).

          but i would be happy with just a really nice acoustic, as long as it had some upper fret access.

              Martin HD-28.

              This isn't one of those "there won't be power" things, but I realy feel if it's just me on a desert island an acoustic will be far more versatile, less ear fatiquing, and just better to accompnay myself with.
