Guild D25 that I bought in 71. Stopped playing electric in 74 and didn't start back on electric until 96.

Mesa Mark IIB. I absolutely loved that amp. I sold it because I quit playing for about 15 years. A friend bought it and still has it. He won't sell it back but gives me first dibs if he does decide to sell it.

Am standard start
Mesa Mk III, into a Yamaha spx90, stereo out, one channel back into the Mesa return, one into a Silverface Twin Reverb. Pretty darn good sound for being processed a fair amount of the time.

1. Around`82 bought a Modded (w/ master vol.) Marshall 50watt mark II, traded it in`84 for...
2. Marshall JMP 50watt 2204 (stock), trade it in`85 for...
3. `70's Marshall Super Lead (stock), this amp head and a `70's Marshall 4x12(loaded w/ greyback G12-25's) was stolen in`85.
4. Later in`85, used a new Peavey Roadmaster head and`70's Marshall cab w/ G12-25's, traded the Peavey for a (stock)`70's Red tolex covered Marshall 50watt mark II (YES!,...I really traded an`80's Peavey for a vintage Marshall!!, at a pawn shop!)
5. In`86, like an idiot, I sold the Red Marshall for $300. to buy a Jap made Charvel, Yeah!,...I Know!!,...I said I was an idiot!
6. In `86 bought a brand new Laney AOR 50watt head and used it with a`70's Marshall 4x12 loaded with G12H-30's, used this same setup until 1990 when I sold it all to buy all rack gear,...Yeah!,..another mistake!

Those are the`80's rigs that I can remember, anything before`82 would have been Peavey stuff.
Only owned, at the most, about 6 or 7 guitars thru out the 1980's and only two at a time.

When I first started playing in 83 or 84 it was a Roland Sprit 10 amp, DOD 250 OD (Still have it) and a Hondo les paul

85-86 Yamaha JX50 amp. Arbor flying V and a NJ BC rich bich. DOD 250, Echoplex, DOD flanger.

By the end of the 80's I acquired a Japanese Charvel, A 67 bandmaster (still have it) and a 4x12 (with EV sro's and still have them) and two fender 2x12 cabs (still have one). I had an Ibanez UE 400 and an Ibanez harmonizer of some kind.

This was my rig in 1980:

The blackface was replaced by a silverface Twin with EV speakers in '81 (not bad). Got a Marshall 4104 combo (excellent!) around '83. I kept the Firebird for a lot of years but during the '80s became a Strat player...

At 15, I had a RR copy before I even knew he had a guitar like that! It had the worst un potted pickups that squealed like pigs. I put a Duncan JB in there after that, and it was good. Then an EMG 85.

'Got my first real amp and guitar at 17, which was a Randall RG-120 with matching 4x12 with Celestion G12M-70's. 'Still have the cab, but finally dumped the speakers. The guitar is a Charvel Model V, which I still have. I played this rig into the 90's, and then went rack with an ADA MP-1, and a crappy solid state crate power amp I got from the buddy I sold the RR copy guitar to!

Mesa Boogie Mk1. What a mistake. Nasal - sounding, difficult to dial in, eventually got rid of it for a Rivera and never looked back.

A Laney combo which was far better than its price suggested.

I still had my Marshall 1974, but its sound was so out of fashion. Such a fool I was.....

Started out in '82 or '83 with one '66 Fender Twin Reverb, and liked it so much, I bought another, and used the pair in stereo. What the heck, I thought, they're Twins - so I need two.
