    1984 Hamer USA KKV.

    I regret selling this one, it played like a dream.

    1989 Gibson Matthias Jabbs Explorer.

    I loved this guitar :(


    This is the guitar I bought with the money from selling the '84 Hamer above.

    1979 25th Anniversary Fender Stratocaster. I sold the Explorer to get this because the cover band I was in at the time, I needed a Strat to cover all the songs we were doing. I thought this was the "be all end all" of Strats and my heart was set on one of these.

    It ended up being one of the worst guitars I've ever owned. Noisy, crappy pickups, poor craftsmanship.

    It sure looked cool though.

    That's OK, because I sold this Strat to get a Marshall JCM900 half stack that I still use today.

    My first "real" guitar was this 1978 Gibson SG. I got it because my heros were Angus Young and Tony Iommi.

    Also in the pic is an old (1985) Kramer Vanguard, from back when Kramers were high quality USA instruments and not the cheap crap Gibson uses the brand name for today.

    :mad:

    My first Strat was a 1989 that I customized out the wazoo (Gold Lace Sensors and a basement spray paint job).

    Once I got this guitar I never played a short Gibson scale guitar again.

    My acoustic is an old Ibanez PF10CE a/e. It's a piece of junk, but I don't really play much acioustic, and when I do on stage I use my singer's Fender acoustic/electric because it's much better than my Ibanez.

    60 Melody Maker, 70 Dan Armstrong, 59 Fender Strat (pic taken in 1976) I paid $50 for the MM, traded a solid state Peavey amp for the DA, and traded a 75 Les Paul Custom for the Strat.

    Sold the Melody Maker and Dan Armstrong on ebay a few years back. Still have the Strat although I got the body refinned back to sunburst in 1981 or 82. Wish I had kept the Melody Maker.

    It's actually fairly difficult to get banned. Same thing anyone does. Break the rules, and ignore repeated warnings to knock it off.

    Only if you're a complete ignoramus and can't comprehend a basic set of rules.

    While I agree with sosomething...I'll put it a bit more delicately.

    It's really not. People like to get a 'martyr' complex and scream foul when they've been 'talked to' about posting style or behavior. It's much easier for it to be 'the mod's fault' then for someone to actually admit they are being a jackass.

    There's a couple zero tolerance issues. And the still don't result in an immediate permanent ban.

    But I suppose at other boards the people that have been bounced congregate and make it out to be the evil administration of the gear page.

    That's fine. I don't really care. My (volunteer) job here is to help keep the peace and try to make sure it's a pleasant place for all.

    With as many members belong to the gear page, it's simply not possible to have a vendetta for one member. It's too time consuming. We do have a life.

    By the way, an inside joke, current events, or disagreeing with someone's musical taste is all acceptable, as long as it fits in with the rules. IE not racist, inflammatory, political, religous, or any of the other rules we all agree to when joining this place.
