You have gigs, your gear gets stolen...

....and the insurance will pay for;
A guitar
An Amp
and
A cable.

Nothing else.

You have to gig with that, and that's it.

What do you get?

Jem 7 dbk

Peavey JSX

No preference for the cable...

and I say the insurance is a bit bastard inside if they will pay only for this while all your gear was stolen!

A '59 Les Paul

a Dumble Overdrive Special 100

Something gold plated.

Then I'd sell all that and buy loads of what I actually want. And pay off my student loan while I'm at it.

Used black RG550 from the bay, One with maple fret board or a black rg20th.

Peavey XXX

A regular good cable that's not a monster cable.

Re: You have gigs, your gear gets stolen...

This isn't a commentary on ins co's. It's a quest to narrow down gear, usable for most situations, to the bare bones.

I think it makes you start to question modlers with built in everything. Since it not for recording, or collecting, or impressing your fellow Jemsiters, I think that opens up choices pretty widely. You'de have tp be able to cover a lot of ground with what you can cary in 2 hands.

I'd say most certainly, Vox Valvetronix AD120 (older blue grill), JS1000 or AT300 (undecided), and whatever cable EJ uses.

There was no mention of buying a pedal, I would have to include a GT-8 if I could. Along with my Ibanez RG its the most important part of my tone. Ibanez and GT-8 in front of a Peavy amp, that's me.

Re: You have gigs, your gear gets stolen...

you make all your gear so absurdly heavy it can't be stolen unless like 4 guys are involved.

Guitar: Fender Custom Shop master build custom strat
Amp: Fender Cyber-Twin SE (the cyber foot controller would be nice too)

An Orange Rocker Rocker 30 and a Les Paul, with one of those Horizon wrapped cables.

If it was a pedal instead of a cable the amp would change. Why would it be a cable anyway, would you really file a claim over that?
