Less of a problem and more of a solution
In: 50th Anniversary Cry Baby Wah
In: I have two days yet.
2019 has been an active year for me. Settled on my pedalboard, sold off everything else (somewhat embarrassingly I can't even recall what this all entailed). Sold off all my guitars except one electric and one acoustic. 2020 could be even more interesting!
- Helix Stomp
- EB volume pedal (anniversary edition)
- Digitech Ricochet
- TC Polytune Noir 3
- Temple Audio Duo 24 board
- Numerous cables for all of the above
- Strings, parts, pickups, etc.
- Fender 12 string electric
- Jackson Gus G signature (in and out in 2019)
- Custom tele snakehead
- MIM Player strat
- Squier strat converted to piezo only saddle pickups
- Kramer Baretta Special
- THR acoustic amp (in and out in 2019)
- Numerous pedals (honestly, can't remember them all)
- Whack of various parts, pickups, hangers, etc.
Hoping 2020 I'll be more focused!
This board is full of freaks!
Any time I feel guilty about blowing cash on gear, I can find someone MUCH worse prowling around here to put mine in perspective.
I only bought or built two new guitars this year:
Warmoth hotrod roasted swamp ash Strat (3 rails, Babicz trem)
Jackson Soloist Pro SL2H
But I had two of my old faves refretted with 6100 stainless steel frets :
1990 Ibanez Universe UV7BK
B.C. Rich Eagle
Mesa Boogie Mark series metal grill 2x12 (vertical)
Sold several pickups I had removed from other guitars and some accessories. A fair amount more to sell in 2020 to get back to a more reasonable level. Although I realize I already have too many guitars, I just can't pass up a good deal and have been stalking several HARD since late Nov.
And I made another purchase tonight.
I did a lot of buying and selling in 2019. Without getting into all of that I can tell you that I'm ending the year with a Swart Atomic Jr. and a Classic 60's Telecaster.
Ibanez RG565 re-issue(just didn't get played)
Marshall SL-X(el-34/100w version)
a bunch of pedals
2019 telecaster ultra in Texas tea (today!)
Mij floral telecaster
02 Les Paul Classic
90s musicman axis sport
Buttload of pedals
Mij floral telecaster
Mij 62 RI strat
Black mij Squier bullet
Sunburst mij Squier bullet
Slightly smaller buttload of pedals
In 2020 I plan on selling the axis sport, Silo w/floyd, Rg550, Rg520, possibly the 02 LP classic and a bunch of pedals. Might pick up a new strat ultra and some misc items like an interface, maybe a kemper or some other modeler.
It's been awesome experimenting. I feel like it's helped me hone in on what sounds I like and what I like to play. but gas is slowing and I'm more motivated to create and improve as a player. I just booked some lessons locally w/ Jennifer Batten and am looking forward to woodshedding.
I love how dark that 60's Bourbon Burst LP Standard is! Seems like these can be anywhere from darkish red to almost black (Tobacco Burst) on the rim.
If I ever saw one like yours at a good used price somewhere down the road, I'd be very tempted.
What's in the last pic? Wine Red Standard? Traditional? Looks great!
Yes sir, a 2013 Trad III
