        Fender Bullet strings. Everyone seems to think they're overpriced but I like them.
        Signature is here!

            I have an old '85 (I think) Hondo Revival in candy apple red. It is awesome. These came factory with a set neck, Grover machinheads, a Kahler locking tremolo, rosewood fretboard, and some pretty hot pickups. Mine had EMGs put in it back in '91 or so, but it is still one of my favorite guitars to play. I swear it sounds better the older it gets.

                    Vigier guitars. Best guitars. Best and most exacting necks - really impressive!




                    Vigier guitars are only unpopular because they are European, rare and very expensive! Brilliant instruments though - on a par with Suhr, Fender custom shop etc.



                    Green guitars are sweet... especially 1977 Musicman Stingray bass guitars...

                        Everyday pedals.

                        My plain old Cry Baby Wah, perfect for me.

                        Dano Daddy O: Had this pedal for years very versatile OD, good for an almost clean boost to heavy fuzz.

                        Dyna Comp: Just a little works wonders on my tele for certain things, useless to me otherwise, can't justify a boutique compressor for what I use it for.



                        My old Carvin DC100. Best made set neck guitar I've ever owned, and I've owned some pretty nice Gibsons. All hard rock maple, original M22 humbuckers, the whole thing is original. I've never even had to tweak the truss rod in 30 yrs. People rag on the pickups, claim the guitar is too bright, blah, blah. Yes is a bright guitar, can almost sound like a Tele clean on the back pickup, but put it on the front pickup and 100% tone and its dark enough to think it was a jazz box if you closed your eyes.



                        Old Peavey Amps: Still got my early 70s Artist 240. A compact little heavyweight that will blow your doors off with a 12" Black Widow, 4 6L6 output tubes, 2 solid state preamps with good eq that you can switch or run in series. And it fits in the backseat of the smallest car.



                        Oh, an banjos. I love banjos!

                                I like my Orange Crush PiX CR35LDX real well.



                                But no one other than me ever seems to talk about them here. I got mine for a mere $164 shipped from HM (reg MAP is $249) .



                                Paul here demos it, but screws up when he says 12" speaker. It's a 10" but sounds fairly big for a 10.

                                Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                                I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.
