    Gibson Les Paul Studio
    Maverick F1 with locking trem
    Some sort of acoustic that sees very little playing time

    He wants a PRS and an MIA Strat now. PRS first, he's been saving for ages.

    I don't know exactly, but here's my guess:
    Team 1: Yamaha acoustic or Fender copy (MIHongKong)
    Team 2: Ovation Elite acoustic of Gibson Les Paul Classic
    Team 3: Martin D28 or Martin 000-028EC acoustics
  6. I know squat about guitars, but here's the basics:

    Paul Reed Smith
    2 Peavey Wolfgangs. Not sure what the difference between the two is, if any. One was bought while the other was being worked on. Apparently it was taking to long, so hey!!! Let's buy another!!

    Before these guys, all of my guitarists seemd to favor no-name or beater instruments. Nothing worth mentioning in the entire lot. Old Deans, Squires, Vesters, whatever "felt right". For the most part, I never noticed a huge sound quality problem with the junk.

    Gibson Les Paul and Firebird. Both in tobacco 'burst running through a Marshall stack. I think Gibson's sending him another LP, he seems to fancy those.

    My guitarist has two ESP Horizons (one with a Floyd, one a hardtail), though he also talks incessantly about wanting a camo Viper. He is basically ESP to the core though.

    I'm not in a band, but my friend with whom I've jammed plays the strat looking G&L HB in white. He's also got a custome made tube combo from one of our local guitar shops...

    PRS through a Crate Blue Voodoo with a Maximizer on the effects loop. Also a pedal board on the way in full of Boss pedals, including delay, octaver, flanger, chorus, and tuner. And a wireless of some kind.

    Sad thing is, I know more about his gear than he does :)

    It sounds damned good though.

    Gibson Non-Reverse Firebird w/ P90's
    70's Schecter Strat
    Gretsch Electromatic

    He currently plays a Carvin Holdsworth semi-hollow body. He has been thinking of purchasing a Schecter (IIRC) Hellraiser to go with the Carvin.

    My guitarists both play relatively similiar intruments:

    Gtr 1: Ibanez RG with upgraded pickups neck and just about n e thing else imaginable, he is also going to buy an American Telecaster in the natural finish i believe

    Gtr 2: Ibanez RG completely stock, and an Ibanez S series with a cracked neck (this caused him to buy the RG) that he plans to replace with another S once he pays off his amp.

    Some have been mentioning Amps so here we go:

    Gtr 1: Marshall Jcm 2000 TSL 100 (or something along those lines) through a Marshall 4x12 of some nature

    Gtr 2: Peavey JSX head through a Peavey XXX 4x12

    (yes we can get loud at times) :bassist:
  20. usually his MIM Fender Telecaster or his Gibson SG. the telecaster really "fits" out music better but on occasion he loves to play his SG.
