    Fender Strat AVRI57 (1993 era), which was my only guitar.
    Marshall JCM900 MKIII 2501 (50W 1x12" combo), which was my only amp.
    Some Dunlop JH wah, which was my only effect.
    Three Fender cables.
    A cheap Korg tuner (not pedal).
    A Yamaha MT100II 4-track cassette recorder with the cheapest Shure mic anyone could buy back in 1994, for my recordings.

    And that was all. In fact that was pretty much my setup from 1994 to around 2006.

    I was playing with the Wildbunch, which would become Electric Six a couple years later, using:

    MIM 50th Anniv Strat
    Some solid state Marshall Combo
    Blue Grey Sovtek Big Muff
    ProCo Rat
    Vox Wah
    Digitech Delay (the blue one with the two foot switches)

    The strat and the amp would get stolen soon after when I drunkenly left them at a venue for almost a week! Ahhh. That strat was good a good strat, it really was.

    Gibson Junior '63 which I bought in 1984. When I say '63 the only thing '63 about it was the wood. It had been converted to a two humbucker set up and at some point I'd put a JB in the bridge which worked incredibly well in that guitar. Now retired due to one too many headstock mishaps.

    A 1983 JV Strat as a back up which was rarely used. Still have it but never play it.

    Laney VC50 2 x 12 combo. Monster of an amp. I sold it, missed it, and bought another one. My first one was pretty noisy but the new one was much better in that respect. Sold many years ago to fund a Cornford combo that I sold three years ago.

    I had an Epiphone LP100 which was a Les Paul style but a bolt-on, i believe upgraded with a Duncan Distortion. I think i got a MIM telecaster that year too.

    I hadn’t picked up guitar yet. Didn’t start playing until 2002.

    I also had a great Les Paul Special in those days, too, although some knucklehead had carved out the P-90s and thrown in DiMarzio 'buckers.

    Wow...gotta think about this...

    Fender American Std Strat
    Gretsch 6120
    Fender Power Chorus Amp
    Handful of Boss Pedals

    I own none of those anymore and have gone down the boutique/small builder hole across the board...I still have a handful of solid Boss pedals though.

    At that time I mainly played an ESP LTD, and got an Ibanez Jem a few years later around 2002 or 3. Dont have either now. I also briefly had a pretty nice Thinline Tele but was a shallow metalhead at the time mostly and didn't realize what I had at the time and got rid of it quickly. I was 16 in 2000.

    My main amp was a Crate Blue Voodoo. Also had a little 1x12 Crate GFX practise amp that finally died on me a few years ago.

    I was 19yrs old. I had an Ibanez AX7221, a 100 watt SS Crate head, and a Marshall 4x12.

    I got the Crate and 4x12 with my first tax refund check. It was like $325 bucks. I didn't have any pedals, but didn't need any either. That Crate had some gain.
