  • Most out of character gear you ever owned

    I'm 50 and while I love a lot of 80s hard rock, its not what I play when I play. Having said that, I owned this Fender M-80 Pro half stack right after I started playing. Got it dirt cheap at a pawn shop for $180. Bastard was LOUD. I think I've owned the whole M-80 line at one point or another, but this was the craziest. Anything over two made my ears ring for a half hour.



    I one day hope to be the man my dog thinks I am.WORDS OF WISDOM FROM VARIOUS MEMBERS"most often the guitar will rise or fall to the level of the player""people overthink ****************""Sometimes you gotta know when to shut the **************** up and have a little class. Not you, you're special.""If it sounds good to you then it sounds good"The bull**************** and myths in the guitar world are stacked very high.

    Yeah, I've done the same sorta stuff.



    Bought and traded off a Randy Rhoads Pro. But only because I looked a bit lumpy in the matching spandex.



    And I also own a JCM2000/DSL100 w 4x12 that I doubt I'd buy again. The first time I cranked it up, my **************************** neighbor was calling me to turn it down within 20 minutes.



    I recently did a neighborhood gig and it was interesting for me (as a home hobbyist player) to really get a chance to see how little amp it takes to keep up in a mix of drums, harmonica, bass player, 2 keyboardists, another guitar player, lead singer and thump bucket player.
    A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.
    HCEG Existentialism: I buy guitars, therefore, I am.
    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.

        In the early 1970's I owned a 105 watt Univox tube amp with a cab full of eight 10 inch speakers. This was situated in the tiny living room of our one-bedroom rented house.



        I could barely play a barre chord at the time, but I'm more of a new age fingerpicker than any sort of rocker. This thing was the musical equivalent of shooting rabbits with an elephant gun.

                Probably this one. I like Fenders, passive pickups and bright colors, but this might be the only guitar I've ever really missed.
                I'm in a band called Little Sluggers. Signature.

                    I owned a Les Paul Jr with a 498 humbucker for a while.

                    Great little rock guitar but that's not what I play.
                    We're not in Kansas anymore.

                        This is coming in on Friday and I am salivating at the thought of getting my hands on it.



                        Never owned a Floyd, let alone a Charvel. Not 'me' at all, but I love the way it looks.

                            For a brief while I had an ADA MP whatever preamp setup, with a bridged 300 watt power amp driving a 2x12 cabinet.



                            Pretty extreme for playing along with my CD player in the family room, but on the other hand, I
