Discussion in 'Guitars in General' started by Ouchz, Dec 3, 2013.
Two original pieces of great sounding art from Pete Malinoski.
A few guitars:
- Gibson SG Melody Maker - upgraded pearloid pickguard and truss rod cover, BG Pure90 pickup (arriving soon), SKB Deluxe case...
- Epiphone Emperor Swingster Royale with Epi case - considering minor upgrades; guitar plays and sounds great stock.
- 2 Tom Holmes pickups - these and Jim Wagner (WCR) Godwoods are my PAF-flavored pickups.
- 2 Jim Wagner (WCR) Ironman pickups - favorite modern bridge pickup; it sounds great from blues to metal!
- 3 Bareknuckle single coils: Slow Hand, Trilogy Suite, Sinner all fitted with zinc-plated steel baseplates - great pickups.
- 1 BG Pure90 - favorite HB-sized P90.
- Sprague 50's Bumble Bee and Luxe caps (Les Paul and Strat).
- Les Paul and Strat cosmetic upgrades from various places.
- Several NOS 12AX7s for my Ecstasy and Uberschall: Mullard I63, Tungsram, RFT...

Damn, I got problems .
Big year for me since I got my first 2 Gibson's: a blues burst ES-137 and a red satin ES-335. Both great guitars!!!
I also picked up a new Yamaha THR10C amp for puttering away in the living room (and to replace my prehistoric computer speakers).
Roland TD-15 edrums, a used Yamaha synth, and a Fender AmStd Strat.

2013 has been the year of the PRS guitar for me. Here's a list:
1991 PRS CU24 - Vintage Yellow with moons
1991 PRS CU24 - Tortoiseshell with birds
1992 PRS CU24 - Grey/Black with moons
1986 PRS CU24 - Royal Blue with moons
2010 PRS CU24 - Vintage Yellow with birds and tune-o-matic bridge
2013 PRS Korina McCarty Soapbar - Platinum Metallic with Birds
2007 PRS CU22 - Charcoal with birds and Brazilian Rosewood neck
2009 PRS DC245 Soapbar - Amber Blackburst with birds
1990 PRS CE24 - Natural
2008 PRS DGT - Some type of burst with moons. This might have been purchased in Dec 12 so it might not qualify
Sadly they were not all keepers. I have a couple of special Fenders that have been around for years so I stopped looking for them. I'm pretty sure 2014 is going to have a Les Paul or 2. Bought 1 amp this year, a Marshall JCM800 4010 combo. Love it. Lots of parts and pedals as well but nothing of note.
Looking at this list makes me feel absolutely silly for buying so much stuff. Clearly I have way more than I need
Great year in gear.
. '79 Shiro Tsuji 17" archtop from Gruhn. A real game-changer and a permanent keeper.
. '59 Gibson ES-225TDN. Did not bond; gone.
. '98 Epi Les Paul Signature hollow-body. Suprisingly cool and fun guitar. Two keepers in one year! Yessah!
. Weber PrincePro amp. Nagging frustration due to my hubris.
. '85 Fender ("Rivera") Super Champ from GC. Grab-and-go powerhouse!
. 90s Euphonic Audio VL-110 from GC -- for upright bass
. '59 Gibson GA-18 amp. Shweet but ready for an update.
. '58 Gibson ES-225TD. Nice guitar but sold to fund the Tsuji archtop; no regrets.
. '59 Gibson ES-225TDN see above. No more 225s for Sam.
Also a great year for learning more about playing and moving forward as a guitarist. Here's to 2014! Less gear and more music!
Picked up an '09 Gibson Studio, Alpine white/gold/ebony board, figured I better get one while I could, now I seldom see them for sale.

Sigh...and I'm still shopping.
OuchZ...you had to remind me ..... well I sold some amps to buy my Kemper.....best decision I made all year. And I bought a Yamaha DXR10 powered speaker for it... another good decision .....
Sold my Burny 70's Lp for a Corsa... my other guitarist is buying the Corsa so that I can justify the Grosh Set Neck I just bought from a forum member here....
that's it... no more gear.... please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change....
I hate this thread... and I'm not going to admit to buying any pedals!
