I own more guitars than good sense but to be fair this is only about half the gear I had a couple of years ago. Sadly my main amp The Bogner Stack is purely for small bedroom use as there is no way that fits in the mx5. If I run it through a 2x12 it looks a bit silly :lol:

Guitars I currently have

Gibson LP Classic Premium Plus : 1995
Ash Custom with 3 P90's
Radian Fat Strat
Mexican Squier Strat with custom psycho paint job
SX Tele, modified with proper pickups (courtesy of 4a-ge), wilkinson compensated bridge and refinished in black nitro. Slight relic.
Home built mahogany bodied strat with warmoth neck
Republic Tricone Bell Brass bodied acoustic
Cort acoustic the missus got for me 10 years ago, now its aging it sounds way better than it should
Banjo - for those squealy pig moments
Hohner The Jack Bass - headless
Hohner steinberger copy - headless

Think thats all I've left at the moment...

Amps :
Bogner Ecstacy 100b and 2 4x12 Marshall quads. Yeah a little bit of overkill for home use, but it sounds fucking great at any volume. At least it did before the magic smoke went out of it, waiting for cash to get it fixed.
Homebrew Tweed Princeton
Homebrew Tweed Vibrolux
Homebrew Marshall 36 Watt

Really been cutting the gear back lately :(

Hi bgnz, I play guitar and backing vocals in a band called Jesse wild and the drive...

I still cant believe I got the the spot as i am really only a self learned (tab etc) bedroom player....until about a year ago when i was invited to come along for a bit and see how it turned out...have played a few gigs with them now, kings arms a couple of times, backbeat bar and even the Sky City.

Nerve wracking but really great fun...I cant even imagine how amazing it must be to playing in front of thousands...

Funny you should mention a Firebird I have one for sale... :shock:

:lol:

Sigh... before cars and cameras, this was my setup.
After i sold the MX i bought another Ephiphone - just like the one pictured, but black. I dont spend enough time with guitars anymore to justify buying another Les Paul Jnr.

Hobbie was sprung by cover bands. I wish i could play as well as i used to...
