Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

This'll be quite a list =p

First guitar... Ibanez RG***ex. Black, HSS, Floyd Copy, Duncan bridge. Rockin guitar for $200 something. Bought it at "The Rock Shop" in Springfield, IL. Neck split on it, so I had to stop playing it. Its currently chillin at a buddy of mine's house in Missouri. He swears he's gonna fix it someday. Right now he's got another Ibanez neck on it, but it doesn't have any locknuts, so its fairly useless. I should try to get it back from him and fix it up... He never plays it anyway.

2. Ibanez RG520. Bought it in the same place, replaced the pickups with Dimarzio Tonezone/PAF Pro. Been jammin on it for 10 years or so. No plans to get rid of it. Sounds awesome, and has the best bridge of the bunch. Its beat to **** and I love it.

3. Taylor 300 series acoustic. Bought it at some other crappy shop in Springfield, played it, got bored with it, traded it for...

4. Washburn Dime333. Some shop in Effingham. Not sure what I was smoking exactly, but I knew I was completely over my Taylor and wanted to rock. In hindsite it wasn't the best decision I ever made, but hey, you only live once. Sold it to fund a car.

5. Gibson Flying V. EMG 81/85. Maken Music in Chicago. (badass shop!)Jammed on this for a long time. Sold it to fund the same car. To this day I still regret having to do that, but there really wasn't any choice. What really sucks is I don't have the car either. Ex heisted it when we broke up 5 or 6 years back. =(

6. Gibson SG Standard. Guitar Center in Knoxville. Wanted a classic instrument to replace the V of yore. Got bored with it real quick, and honestly it was fairly uncomfortable. I'm not a big guy, so I felt like I was a little kid playing Dad's guitar with it. Sounded great tho. Sold it to my boss to fund my Peavey XXX. Haven't regretted it once. I prefer trem guitars.

7. Ibanez RGT42BP. ****. Pretty bitchin guitar, but I hated the bridge and the pickups sucked. Traded it and some cash for...

8. Ibanez Jem7vwh ! Guitar Center Atlanta. Obviously this guitar requires no introduction, and is going nowhere. I absolutely love it.

9. Breedlove AC12345Cheap. Some craptacular shop here in Chattanooga. I'm not sure the model number of it honestly. It was $400 and is ok. I wanted an acoustic guitar to dick around with. It sits in my living room and is largely unplayed.

10. Ibanez RG2550EGK Just got it. Sweetwater Sound. Ordered a Fernandes sustainer and a Dimarzio fred for it, and the sustainer wouldn't fit anywhere. Returned the Sustainer and ordered a Sustainiac Stealth Plus, and it hasn't arrived yet. Plays great, and I can't wait to hear what it sounds like when it's done. Hope to have it done next week!!!

Next guitar? Eeek the woman would crucify me for even thinking about it too hard.... probably a strat of some sort. I'm really content with my rig at this point. I can't really think of any reason to buy another guitar, as I can get every sound I could possibly want with the 3 electrics I have.

I've also got a no name classical acoustic that someone left at my house a few years ago. I haven't touched it in ages, really don't care for it... But i've got it no less.

Damn, I had no idea i've had so many guitars lol.

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

Ibanez RG2027XVV-Beacuse they're awesome,rare and it was cheap.
Ibanez LACS Dino- Well,because it's the coolest guitar that Ibanez never made.
Ibanez IC300 (with Sperzels and EMG's fitted)- This guitar is sentimental as my Mother bought it for me. It kicks-ass with the EMG's too!

Gibson SG '02 model- It's a classic!
1979 Gibson Flying V (Artic-White)-The tone on this guitar is phenomenal! It's one of the best sounding guitars i've ever played and also seems to be increasing in value at an alarming rate.

^ Pictures of all my guitars and when and where I got them.

My next guitar would be either another 7620 or another UV.

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

97 Simon & Patrick Pro flame maple acoustic. Used in 97. Pride of the fleet. S&P finally came to their senses last year and bumped them up to the $1200 mark.

94 MIJ Tele Custom reissue. Only stock item in the signal chain is the neck bucker. Texas special bridge, cts pots/orange drops, Switchcraft SG/Firebird toggle. Brass compendsated saddles. Bought used in 98.

82 Ibanez Artist AR105 Used in 99. Killer axe.

05 Art & Lutherie cedar 12. New in 05. Wanted a 12.

04 PRS SE Soapbar singlecut. Used in 05 (auction site) for $320. I looked on HC reviews and I guess I got the best deal in the world hehe. Always wanted a cherry LP special singlecut with P90's, or an SG, and this one feels like an SG with a LP-ish look. great guitar.

06 Custom Strat....built from parts by me. Wanted a alder bodied strat with vintage appointments, figured birdseye neck with an ebony board, abalone dots and real Jumbo frets. Didn't want to wait 6+ months, or spend the $3000+ for a fender custom shop strat, so I built my own for about $450.


Here's my next build. Parts are all in the mail as we speak.

Jackson DK2 style bolt on with SSH configuration with full size hotrail in bridge, single sized hotrail in neck, and a single coil middle. Natural finish. AAA flame top and headstock overlay. Bound dark rosewood fb with bluish pearl sharktooth inlays. Non-reverse headstock.

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

1st- Yamaha Pacifica Tele
my dad gave it to me to play around on till he had enough money for an actual good guitar hah, it was 4 years ago

2nd- Fender American Deluxe
got it at morningstar music for my 15th birthday so 2 years ago. I loved SRV more than anything at the time so I like needed a fender

3rd- Ibanez Rg2570
Got it last year as a Bday/Christmas present since If I would have gotten a Birthday present that year I probably couldn't have bought the guitar and a Boss Gt-Pro. I bought it from Rich and I have to say I want to buy from him for every future Ibanez. I got it because I was just out of my Straight Blues days and I wanted to be able to play other things such as Vai or Satch and not have to retune everytime I touched my tremolo. Also the 24 frets was a sweet bonus

Next- ESP Edwards Kiko Signature
or
Jackson Dinky Eerie Dess Swirl with OFR upgrade
I really Love the Edwards Kiko Loureo signature guitar and I've always wanted to try 27 frets, and 12-27 are scalloped so that is a cool little feature . Also I've always wanted an OFR on a guitar so...

About the Jackson, I love the color and I've always wanted a Jackson (or ESP as you can tell from the Kiko sig)

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

First one I got was an Aria Pro II back in like '86 or '87.

My parents got it for me for Xmas one year.

The first guitar I ever bought myself was in '88 and I still have it: Charvel model 4. I paid around $700 brand new. It took FOREVER to save up to get it at that age and those wages!

Not sure what is next?

I know I'll get another Gibson Explorer this year but I don't know what Ibanez or other guitar my come my way this year?

I have both and love them both. I do plan to change the bridge pup out to an EvoII soon.

The RGT3120 is a heck of a nice axe too. I have the RGT3020 and wow! Ibanez weren't just fooling around when they made these

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

I've had maybe 10-12 over the years, but believe it or not, I'm down to only ONE guitar right now. I've never played or heard a better one though. There's something about getting a custom guitar made to exactly your specs that no stock guitar can match. It's a Jackson swirl body with a handmade custom neck - flame maple (triple color stain on the back) with a cocobolo fretboard, abalone purfling and custom abalone inlay (12th fret and headstock). The pickups are all Dimarzios - Cruiser in the neck, Area 61 in the middle, and a Steve Special in the bridge. The trem is a Schaller Floyd Rose (basically an OFR but without anything sticking out that would require body routing). And, sperzel locking tuners.

Re: WHAT GUITAR HAVE YOU GOT WHERE WHEN WHY AND YOUR NEXT

Cool neck. I could picture that on a nice body from Warmoth with the same routing and shape in the same stain color as your neck. That would be pretty tastey
