If you could only have 2 amps/guitars

Say you could only have 2 amps, 2 guitars and 2 pedals. Further, say everything had to be stock, 'normal' gear. What would you pick?

A tough call but, I think I would opt for a Tele, a 335, an AC30 and a Super Reverb with a booster pedal and a delay.

tough call.....amp wise I'll choose my Voodoo amps V-plex and one of these:

Baka 50
Bruno UG
Fuchs OD 50
Bad cat Hot cat 30

Since they are all head amps I need a cab:

For the the V-plex an old 60's Marshall cab (with the basket weave grill) loaded with pre-rola G12M and G12H

or a very good 2x12 with same speakers, for both amps.

Guitar:

Gauge custom guitars

Pedals:

MXR 6 band eq
Keeley Compressor

Since I'll be using just 1 guitar (if I can cheat) I'll substitue the guitar for an attenuator.

I'd go with a Strat and a Les Paul, my Laney LC-50II and Deluxe Reverb, with wah and delay pedals.

I would have 2 Les Pauls: a 54 P-90 Goldtop and a 58.

The two amps would be a Jamison combo and the K30.

I would want a univibe and a boost.

I think I'd do the Rory Gallagher on the amps. Tweed twin and AC30.

Guitars - Strat or Tele and a Les Paul Jr.

That's terrible of you to put the guys on this site through such a horrific emotional and potentially psychologically damaging train of thought. But since it may never have to happen, I guess it's OK. ;)

Hmmm, tough. At the moment:

Guitars: PRS CE-22 & Fender Strat

Amps: BF/SF Pro Reverb & and a Marshall-ish head/cab

Peds: Overdrive and echo (is the TTE a pedal?)

Whew. I think I've changed my position on this thread. It's actually been quite theraputic to indulge in this tragic fantasy of sorts. Perhaps it's possible to be happy with just two of each?? :eek:

I'd say for guitars it would be my 335 and my Tele. For amps it would be my Sewell Texaplex and my old Magnatone Lyric 115.

Absolutely essential to me:

1. '98 Fender MIJ 60's Strat (w/large frets & Van Zandt pups).
2. '01 LP Standard, (stock but needs new pups)
3. '72 Fender Vibrolux Reverb (to blackface specs - except for the voltage dropping resistor that was changed so that both are 10K now). Very sweet and my all time fave amp I've ever played.
4. RI '59 Bassman.
5. My Furman pedal board with: Fender tuner, Barber Direct Drive SS, Boss chorus, Boss delay.

Does "stock, normal gear" really include stuff from small builders? That really opens things up. I'd be a lot more challenged if I had to walk into a "typical" music store anywhere in the country and pick two each of amps, guitars and pedals from their stock. Think Guitar Center, for example...

So, I'll split my answer: unusual stuff versus "commodity" gear.

A Koll Custom DL paired with a Fender Vibro-King would be my first choice of non-commodity gear.

If I had to buy something off-the-rack from GC or MF, I'd spend some quality time hand-picking a nice lively semi-hollow guitar (maybe a Gibson or something from the Ibanez Artcore series), then pair that with a simple tweed-ish amp like a `59 Bassman RI or a `57 Twin RI.

Keep your pedals, or let me find a Leslie 145 or 147 with the combo preamp.

Two Thorn guitars: one with single coils, one with humbuckers.
Two Fargen amps: one with lower wattage and and one with medium wattage. Perhaps a Miniplex and a Bordeaux.
Pedals: AC Booster and Teese Picture Wah
