Shoot, my sister got our camera stolen, so I will do the best I can to describe my Strat, then link to my Gibson.

First, the Stratocaster. I believe it is a Custom Classic, and the color is the very nice blue that I will have to take a picture of at some point. I have never seen the guitar outside of the store where I bought it, as they are the only Custom Shop dealers in my area. The most unique aesthetic feature of the guitar is actually its matching headstock. It also has a mid-boost knob built into what is usually the bridge pickup tone knob. All in all... drool worthy, but you will have to wait for pics. Oh, and did I mention the playability? Off the charts.

Second is this:

Gibson Custom SG Custom Stopbar Les Paul Electric Guitar and more Solid Body Electric Guitars at GuitarCenter.com.

I have it in Classic White.

^ Nice!! I have a '04 SG in cherry red. I personally didn't like Strat's sound too much for some reason...

What did u hook it up with?

I have SG -> TS-10 Ibanez tube screamer -> 1981 fender vibrochamp

Don't like Strats? Blasphemy!

That's a nice setup, though! I just bought a Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C for my main setup, which I haven't familiarized myself with yet. I suspect it will kick some serious ass with the SG. I have played out of several Fender amps (owned a Princeton 65 w/DSP solid state amp for years, but that thing is just garbage, imo), and was blown away by their clean tone. So I'm thinking that I'll purchase either a Blues Jr. or Reverb Deluxe for a second setup. In that case, I'll also get the TS808 tube screamer, so that I can do SRV to the max.

lol something about their sound sig I don't like --I'm not too sure what it is. I preferred teles! I wouldn't mind getting an eric clapton strat, though.

I heard that 808s and TS10s have very very close sound sig. tube screamers just sound special IMO.

I still need to get a decent wah and delay. I have no idea what to get. Still noob-ish with electronic guitars.

I should hold back on buying more stuff though, considering that I just dropped few grands on a bike a leica camera/ lens.

I really really want that flight case:

My new portable rig...

Update!

I decided that the Les Paul Custom SG VOS did not suit my style, because the extra pickup acted as a blockage to both finger picking and playing with a pick. I returned that thing and went more along the route of Rednamalas1. I bought a Fender Deluxe Reverb, TS808 tube screamer, and a Dunlop Wah (the original, really basic one). All I can say is that out of the Custom Shop Strat that GC had, it sounded amazing; it'll sound at least as good out of my Strat. Only problem is that I don't want to sound like a cheap SRV imitator.

Hush up, Canada boy; I've already spent enough money!

I just spent a good hour playing some Cream stuff... holy crap does it sound amazing. The only problem is that with the distorted Clapton circa Cream material, you have to readjust everything to get back to a "normal" clean sound. Whatever... sounds fantastic and that's all I truly care about. [This, as opposed to a bull**** cheap digital board (which I've owned previously), where you can select "Cream," then "SRV," then "AC/DC," etc. Laaaame.]

This is it guys, I swear. Not only because I ran out of patch cables either, hehe. Well, my Stroboflip isn't in the pic but there's a spot for it above the A/B/Y box when needed. Anyhow, you haven't lived until you've heard a Flying Pan go from a Tweed Princeton to a Blackface Vibro Champ. Like Bo Derek running on the beach.



Radial A/B/Y to a Maestro/BYOC Wah w/Whipple Inductor to Ernie Ball Vol/Pan to Triangle Big Muff clone to Deluxe Memory Man to Verbzilla to Flying Pan.

Amp size (watts) must be proportional to post count, Mr. Prolificus. And SS amps don't count, of course.

But in all seriousness, that must sound quite nice.

(Oh, and that "Ibanez" on the left almost looks like "Obama" from a distance.)

Ahh... the real thing. Next time I go to a guitar store, I'll play the reissue. I would guess it sounds awesome, though. Fender's clean tone... very much yummy.

I feel like such a loser having paid 400 six years ago (didn't ask for a deal like I do every time now!) for my Princeton 65 w/DSP SS amp. Even with the treble turned down all the way, it was sooooooooo bright. It was the Grado 325i of amps. It's now on consignment, and I'm hoping some useful idiot will pick it up so that I can get a nice acoustic.

Ayep the real deal, just posted a quickie clip to give a sense of the whole rig!

YouTube - Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan Effects Demo

And the '65 Princeton Reverb that Fender reissued this year sounds like the real deal - it's not point to point but otherwise it's very faithful, you should check that out!
