    Ric 360/12, Pedal Board, VOX AC15H1TV and a couple of beatup Strats ...

    Close-up of Pedal Board. New Pedal Train and Pedal Power 2+ Everything seems to work perfectly. The large box on right is a Shure LX14 Wireless Receiver. Everything else, you've probably seen before.

    Been working on the rig on and off this winter getting everything squared away and working perfectly. It's pretty much any and everything required to cover a bunch of cool 60s tunes all the way around.

    That looks like a Donner painted Peppermint Fuzz. Am I correct?

    I have the standard Peppermint. Fantastic fuzz.

    Do hippies use belt sanders?

    I was expecting a fuzz face, a crybaby, and a 335.

    Plus, I don't think Jorma Kaukonen was wireless during the Summer of Love.

    Great looking rig! Are the Strats naturally relic'd?

    WAY too many pedals for the 60s, and nobody had a pedal board ;)

    But still, cool rig :)

    Strat headstocks weren't that big in the 60's, either.

    Sadly, we don't get to do any Hendrix or anything THAT cool in the band! Good eye, though.

    Yep, the donner box P'mint Fuzz. Would have had the normal box, but couldn't find on used at the time. Also outfitted with the on-off knob to save the battery.

    I swapped out an Analogman Sunface so the P'mint and probably like the Sunface better than the new one. Live and learn.

    It looks pretty cool onstage. The amp usually sits on the corner of the drum riser with mine and the other guitarists guitars lined up across the front of the drum riser.

    Because we're a hippie 60s show band, everybody thinks all the guitars are really old! The other guy does play a vintage '66 335 as his #1 player. He's having 2nd thoughts when I told him the approximate value of the wood he was bringing to gigs! :eek:
