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.

zoomtheline - what's that mesa combo? I don't recognize it.

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.
