well seems as one member posted up an issue with his guitar amp, a fair bit of interest was sparked on this topic, so i thought it would be cool to start a thread on music gear and just anything to do with it. doesnt matter what you play, just get it out here.

this thread can be used to show off your stuff, see if someone wants to come for a jam, to post up any problems you are having technically or in your gear etc, or just to talk some crap on this subject.

i'll go first:

i play bass mainly, but bought a guitar and amp just to hack about on, but my big hands are suited to the fat strings anyway.

i have:

markbass little mark 2 amp head
markbass 610rf cabinet
randall rx120-d amp head
randall rx412 cabinet
dean mkh guitar (got it for cheap off ebay usa)
spector rexx 5 string bass (not the holoflash model)
epiphone les paul standard limited edition bass (just for something to play that i dont have to care about)
3 channel tech 21 bass driver di pedal
line6 mini pod pedal
distortion factory pedal

i would love to get rid of my dean as i hardly use it and get something a bit tamer, maybe a les paul or theres an esp eclipse in the shop in town that i can get a good price on.

i would also love to get an old fender precision bass, olympic white with a black pick guard, i think its the '76 or '78 model that the black pick guard was standard.

heres a pic of my amps and the dean and spector. will get a pic of the crappyphone up later..



enjoy.

ps. one topic for discussion could be how you transport your gear around, my bass amp only just fits in the back of my ute with the tonneau cover done up...

used to play a guitar a bit, but stopped for a couple of years, just bought myself an acoustic/electric to get myself back into it a bit.

My gear-
- Marshall MG50DFX 50 watt amp
- Black Samick start copy - Electrics swapped over to Ibanez humbuckers, homemade transparent scratch plate with artwork underneath.
- Monterey acoustic/electric. Built in tuner is handy
- Current building a explorer electric guitar. Made from decent wood, and have a EMG-60 and a EMG-81TW to go into it. I have all the parts, just gotta bolt it all together and drill a few holes then its done apart from paint

Ive got 2 electrics and a bass.

This is my bass, its nothing special, just a 700 dollar number I got to muck around on. Ended up getting it signed by The Misfits.



This is my Jackson Warrior. Brought it as a $900 number and chucked EMG's in it.



Ive got an Ibanez hollow body as well, but my brother has it at the moment, cost me about 1200, got it home and after 2 months the sound of it changed from when I first got it, hated it and my brother has used it ever since.

This is it: Ibanez :: Hollow Guitars :: AK

As for amps, Ive got about 20 laying around, ranging from peices of crap to my beloved Marshall.
