    Hey, my name's Will and I come from VT. 19. Been playing bass for almost six years and guitar casually for a couple years. Now, I'm getting serious and focusing more on guitar. I'm really influenced by Pete Cosey, John McLaughlin, Tommy Bolin to likes of Ron Asheton and Johnny Greenwood. Played in a rapcore/funk/rock/jam kind of thing on bass. But playing avante-garde/experimental/free jazz/punk/noise kind of stuff on guitar with some people in the manner of Miles' Dark Magus, Stooges Fun House, maybe Last Exit. Hopefully record this summer--really into getting the guitar not to sound like a guitar with a lot of effects and some software. Anyway here's the basic setup:

    Peavey Raptor--been borrowing a friend's Strat for a while now--in the market for something new myself
    Fender Standard Jazz Bass 5-String
    Peavey Rage 258--been using Marshalls during some sessions
    Fender Bassman 150
    DigiTech Grunge
    Prescription Electronics Experience
    DigiTech RP150 Multi-Effects
    Crybaby
    Fooling around with Max/MSP

    Hopefully I can get some recommendations and advice around here for tone and effects.
