Synth Junkies Who're Guitar Junkies Too

i'm guilty, guitar was my first serious instrument aside from piano lessons when i was young i wish i'd never quit and about two weeks with a sax in fifth grade. guitars started showing up enough in the "latest acquisition" thread that i thought i oughta start a guitar one here. share pics of your axes, amps & pedals! (bass & acoustic quite welcome too!)

I was happy to finally play some guitar at our gig this weekend. Carvin TL60 into a Carvin MTS 2x12 tube combo. It had been 10 years since I played guitar onstage. All keyboards since then. I've never played guitar only in a band. My fellow synth nerds may want to check out the digitech GSP1101 or similar processor. It was as much fun to program as any synth I've had. Alas I sold it to get moar synthz

My 1968 Messenger. These were built in Astoria, Oregon for about a year and a half. There were some prototypes built from kits as part of the Tongue Point Job Corps program in Astoria going back to about 1964 which can be seen here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-BURKE-A ... 1e72150944 .

This is the same model used by Mark Farner on the early Grand Funk records. It has an aluminum neck, DeArmond pups, and built in fuzztone. They also made a stereo version, a short-scale bass, and a line of amplifiers. The amps can be seen here:

Eastwood came out with a Messenger tribute model a few years ago which looks a lot like the original but has a wood neck and humbucking pups. http://www.eastwoodguitars.com/

I have many but here are the ones I play most

Charvel Surfcaster with added Bigsby, Chet Atkins arm, locking tuners, and GFS lipstick Alnico humbucker
Image

Dano Danoblaster-cum-Bass VI with added GFS Alnico lipstick pickups. It's tuned E to E and serves my bass and baritone needs.

Thanks. Danos aren't my faves and there are models I like better. But I wanted a 24-fret Bass VI-type instrument and there just aren't many options for that out there.

Some really cool guitars in this thread. Love your HiFlyers and that Messenger.

Oh sorry, always forget to look down here. Too many categories to check ha.

The guitar is one I built, based on a yamaha SG (might have some build pics on this computer if you're interested?) The mesa is a Nomad 2x12. not many about as I think they were not particularly liked as the pots are pretty badly made and one of the higher gain channels sound a bit much but the amp itself does sound real nice though.

Oh and that pic is my wife! (kidding) it's just a random google images of a Spider woman for a pisstaking post on another forum, can't remember what context exactly though.

If you have some build pics you wouldn't mind sharing, I'd love to see them. Maybe another offtopic thread [so we can avoid getting called out for turning this place into a glearslutz type of forum]...

Very cool looking ax.

This is the best $150 I've spent on an amp. It even came with a jan-philips nos 12ax7wa. Its a modified knight kn-3035.
I have to set it on bricks because it burns the table
Image

And this is the amp that I built when I was younger. It is pretty nice, but looks bad. Its a fender 5e3 deluxe clone.
Image

I plan on building a 5e1 clone sometime.
