New Gear Pics

Hey all, picked up so new stuff in trades over the last few weeks and I finally got around to loading pics. Enjoy.




Light Ash Tele, It's Korean so I almost didn't buy it, but the price was right, it came stock with Duncans and the neck is very Wolfgang-esque. Birdseye maple with abalone dots. I am replacing all the rest of the electronics with an RS Tele kit.






Birdseye Les Paul. '57 Classic pickups, haven't gotten to play it yet.




A while back I started a thread about custom cabs, here is my Valve Jr and the cab I had made from Lopoline (a guy with an e bay store) The speaker is an Eminence Redcoat



The Rock Shelf because I'm a dork.

I played that tele once - it's seriously a great guitar, or at least the one I tried. It just felt and sounded "right".

Re: New Gear Pics

Oh, and how's the Valve Junior? Does it have enought headroom for a decent clean tone? I wonder how it would sound with the maxon SD-9 in front and pushing my custom 1x12 cab...

Re: New Gear Pics

The VJ is a great little amp, you really need to crank it to get it to break up, thats why there is a distortion poedal on top of it. There are a ton of mods on the internet that can be done to the amp relatively cheap. I bought it with plans to mod it, but I havent gotten around to it yet and really dont think I need to. It's mainly my bedroom amp or the one to use when I dont want to over use my 64 Princeton.

I got the tele f0r $500 out the door. MF sells it for about $689 but I have a good hook up at a couple of stores. The main guy I buy from is pretty funny because he will give me a price then after I say I'll take it, he lowers the price once more.

That Les Paul is one of the nicest I have ever seen.

Re: New Gear Pics

Finally got to put some time in with the LP, if anyone is thinking about replacing the pickups in their Les Paul, or LP copy definately give the 57 Classics a look. I think they may be the best Gibson pickups ever.

Re: New Gear Pics

Those VJ amps are stupidly tempting.
I have been really wanting one of those for ages now. I wanted the head version too. Must get to try one out.

Nice gear!
