    Very cool. Makes me think of Lukather immediately.

    Luke has been one of the many inspirations for this rig.

    I had a CAE 3+, but I think the Egnater sounds MILES better.

    I Still need a 2290 and a better harmonizer, but this is okay. ;):dude

    I was SO close to jumping on a $1200 BIN, but I decided that much money was excessive for a delay. :(

    +, I need the money for the feb Egnater Seminar. ;)

    Dude! My first "real" guitar was an RG that looked exactly like that one. Nice. Thanks for a flood of wonderful memories!

    Just wondering if that string of lights in the left of Pic. 1 is part of your rig?

    as a retired cheese metal vet of the Sunset Strip scene....this is more a studio cats style rig. Us metal dudes couldn't afford the rack stuff...a Marshall head and 4-12 cab or three and one or two stomp boxes is about all most of us could scrape together.

    I had an H&K just like that. Those things will ROCK ... oh yes they will!

    +1 on the Egnater, I had one of those too. Channel 3 is heaven.

    I love Christmas lights!!!!

    :jo darnit. Nothing ever works out right. :crazy I was thinking like Schon, Lukather, or Landou.

    THanks!!

    Best sounding rig I've put together actually. The Egnater IE-4 + the VHT 2150 = best setup I've heard.


    +1 on both counts.

    Well, the Atari is mono out, but It becomes stereo in the harmonizer and delay.:horse:rotflmao

    +1 I was in Birmingham Alabama and toured the Southeast. For the most part I was running a JCM 900 50 watt Dual verb and stomp boxes. I did however run a Marshall JMP-1 for while with a 9200 and some of the Rockman half space stuff.
    I remember hanging out with Rex Carrol of White cross ( I was in the Christian Metal scene ) and being shocked to see he was just running a Peavy Rockmaster pre and a Classic 50/50 live.
    Not taking anything away from your rig man I bet it sounds GREAT but it can be a real surprise to see what many of the Hairband guys were actually running back in the day!!

    Back in the mid`80's most of us in hair/glam metal bands could bearly afford one half stack, a guitar and a couple of pedals.
    Good thing back then you could still find`70's and even sometimes`60's Marshall gear for cheap $$ in the pawn shops!! I had an early`70's Super Lead, stock with a Marshall 4x12 w/ 25 watt Celestions and used just two pedals, a Distortion and a Chorus.
    I would give anything if I still had some of the Marshall gear that I bought dirt cheap back in the `80's!!:(

    Man I miss my rig like that. Got stolen about 12 years ago...I gave up playing guitar for nearly 10 years after that. Only recently getting back into it.

    Wow that's a lot of gear. Do you take that to every gig or do you have a stripped down version?
