Guitar/bass players - let's see your gear!

Tried searching, and couldn't believe there isn't a thread for this. Any guitar/bass players out there? Let's see what you have! I'll start off.

Fender American Pro P bass - Antique Olive finish
Fender American Pro Jazz bass - Natural finish

I have a few guitars that I can take pics of later, but I'll see if this thread takes off.

I'll try to post some pics when I get home from work if I remember. I don't have anything special though, my main which is a hardtail Ibanez 6 and a hardtail 7 string Schecter that I haven't put too much time on since I got it like a year or so ago.
I really want to buy a nice half/full stack sometime soon, I've been playing for 10 years on little bedroom/practice amps haha

Absolutely nothing wrong with that! Rock with whatever you got. We're a dying breed.

Looking forward to the pics.

I quit playing (guitar) a few years ago. The only guitar that I have left is an Ibanez that was originally purchased for my oldest son to play on, then he gave it to me when he bought his SG. The youngest son now has a blacked out Epiphone Les Paul and a hollow body Gretsch that he plays around on. I started playing when I was 15 and have had so many guitars I barely remember all of them. My favorite was a custom Jackson that I had EMG pickups and a floating Floyd Rose installed in after I sanded the paint off to expose the wood grain then covered with epoxy. That guitar was beautiful and played like butter, almost as smooth as the Gibson SG I had in my 20's. My all time favorite acoustic was my blacked out Ovation. Can't remember the series of the Ovation but I loved that thing. When I started having issues with my hands and had difficulty playing, it frustrated me to the point where I just stopped playing. The ex-wife bought my Ovation to gift to my stepson at the time, as a graduation present. It served itself well, as I taught him how to play and it means the world to him that he has the guitar, from the guy that taught him and that he learned to play on.

I do miss playing at times and will pick up the Ibanez, then my dexterity issues begin, i get frustrated and put it back down.

OK, here's the full arsenal! From left to right:


Fender Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster aka "Blackie" - Best friggin' Strat I've ever heard in my life. Plugged into an Orange Rocker 32, it's unlike anything else. I'm generally not a fan of active pickups, but these do wonders for this beast. Doesn't have as much twang as other Strats, so maybe that's why I love it so much.

Gibson Les Paul Traditional Honeyburst - Easily the best tone in the collection, classic staple. Any guitarist should own a LP at least once in their lifetime. So worth it.

Epiphone ES-333 Tom Delonge Signature - Total outlier, but the greatest for playing punk rawk with your mouth open and tongue out after a day of chasing aliens, just like the legend himself. Love him or hate him, his influence on pop and rock genres was unquestionable. The quality and color of this guitar is complete crap, but it easily is the most fun to play on distortion and messing around.

Fender American Pro P bass - The color and tone of this bass is why I keep it. Strung on flats, nothing cuts through with the punch of a P bass. Took me a while to appreciate them, but boy do I now.

Fender American Pro Jazz bass - So much style and speed. Thin, fast neck, jazz bass growl strung on Ernie Ball hybrid slinkies, and the natural finish is to die for. Perfect for a jazz bass.

Nice! Loving the finish on that MM. Always have had a soft spot in my heart for Rickenbacker.

+1 for the BC Rich not being a Warlock. That Fender strap does everything for that guitar.

Oh man. I have too much gear to even list. At work so I don't have many updated pics, but heres my pride and joy bit of gear for gigging.

Fractal AX8
Fractal EV1 Exp. Pedal
Line6 G50 Wireless
Trailer Trash Road Case
Custom Wired junction box.
- 2x XLR out (one monitor, one FOH)
- USB IN (for firmware updates)
- Powercon In (Main)
- Powercon Out (To monitor)

Have 8 guitars right now. Mostly PRS's. One Martin Acoustic.

Amps in my collection include an EVH 5150iii, Mesa F50, Vox AC30.

Also have a ton of PA and recording equipment. Enough to probably do a 1000+ attendee concert outdoors.

Sad part is, I'm a mediocre guitar player at best

I'm definitely in the "more money than talent" category. Whatever, I own it. The only value a hobby should be judged on is the enjoyment it gives you, in my opinion.

Yep but a bit customized. Got it from a studio 25 years ago or so and word was it was Mike Gordon's. Sounds like an angry piano.

Bought it to play Trick of the Light
