    I take three to shows. Main, backup for main, and one for alt tuning.


    My set-up exactly ... fortunately, I haven't a stringbreak on stage since we started the band ... for some reason, it's only ever happened at rehearsal.

      Is it a photo of Paul McCartney on that first guitar from the left?


      Yes it is a Hamer with a paint job that is a tribute to the Beatles.

        I'm sure the artist on stage doesn't give a toss what you think. Let me guess.. you play Metal? How much of your post is posturing?


        How is metal more posturing than any other style? It's more honest in my opinion. If you want to bang your head and show off, I find that less posturing than a guy who is constantly being handed

          I gig with a minimum of three guitars -- a Tele, a Strat, and a Wolfgang. Some songs just require different sounds. I've even played gigs with another Tele on top of that just because I have a particular Tele that gets sounds that my other Teles don't get.

            Depends.

            I can see the need for a few.

            In a Blues setup, if you use Standard tuning, open G, and open E, thats 3...throw in backups and you are up to 6.

            Even in the situation I am in playing Metal in one band, I can see the need for 2 6 strings, and 2 7 strings, and thats assuming you drop the E to D for the drop D stuff on one of the 6 strings.

            If I dont want to fiddle with tuning at all, I'm up to 6 again.

            I am a big believer in having backups for as much as possible...

                The majority of the time it's for different tunings. I'm surprised it took this long to be posted.


                Yup. Plus some guys switch off rather than tune between songs.

                    Star ****************ers love their dilitantes. "Oh Dear, I saw a drop of sweat fall onto Yingwies guitar, wish I could lick it up." Those ass holes have egos that are in outer space. The multiple guitar changes have come about only in the last few years. That **************** never used to happen. Changing guitars is like R Plant putting a ****************ing cucumber in his pants so all the little girls would think he has a humongous cock. "Stagecraft." Elmore James and Slim Harpo in blues and rock and rollers used the same ****************ing guitar during a whole set. I know, I was there. As I have said in here before, a real guitarist can make a 50 ****************in' dollar guitar sound like a state of the art high dollar guitar. Can retune in a heartbeat right there on stage in front of everyone. There is a differnce between generations I see. Much more flash and ego now, ****************ing show offs! Yingwie or whatever his first name is should change his name to BOB! Or BILL. Saw Eric Johnson in Austin and he was satisfied with one guitar, but I suppose some of you in here would think that is archaic. "Just a thought."

                            Im actually glad Sonic Youth tours with like 60 guitars. Becuase of the tunings it would be impossible for them to tour otherwise. Its also fun to see what the **************** they are all using from song to song as all 3 of em switch up constantly.

                              It's funny how people often complain that someone has alot of guitars and nevers plays them except in their bedroom and then we have the opposite discussion here. A good carpenter could probably build a house with just a hammer and a saw but with all the other tools available the job is done much better. If you have the access to the perfect tools for each job there is no shame in using them.

                                Building a house is one thing; slinging guitar in a rock band at a crowded club full of drunk people is another. Poor analogy.

                                I don't really care how many guitars a person whips out on stage. To a gearhead geek like me, I dig seeing, say, Tom etty and Mike Campbell move through a fleet of cool vintage instruments during a show.

                                But non-gearhead geeks (the vast percentage of the audience) don't care and won't be able to tell the difference.

                                For people who are playing small clubs in local hero bands, even less of a **************** is given. At that level, if you need a dozen different "tools" to play a 45-90 minute show, then it's the "builder" and not the "tools" that have a deficit of utility.

                                Again, though, I can see if a guitarist is playing in different tunings, etc.

                                But for the most part, meh.
