My Name is John (some of you may know me from MLP) & I'm a compulsive guitar addict and stupidly thought joining this would help me not to buy anymore guitars, [rolleyes] Boy was I wrong.
I have Been Playing for 30 years both semi pro and just for fun but have never been what you'd call a great lead guitarist but i can get by. I like a groove. I also enjoy anyone that knows chords and uses them well.
my current collection stands at 112 including.

Back Row = 2012 50's Tribute SG
Left to Right
1982 Spirit 1 (all original with Tim Shaw 59 Humbucker)
2014 Les Paul Traditional
2012 Les Paul Classic Custom
2012 Les Paul Studio 50's Tribute HB

2008 Explorer 76 Reissue

2017 Firebird T

Lastly, like so many others here, the guitar is such a great friend to me. It has always been there. Remember..the tone is in your fingers.
Thanks!
Nice forum

I'm almost as big an addict for amps as guitars (current collection 23 amp and assorted cabs)

my favorites st the moment are =
Home use

Epiphone Electar “1939” Century” Reissue
Juketone “Royal Blood” Amp Head
Juketone 1x12 Cabinet


Gig use

*Epiphone Valve Junior Head (Hot Rod Special Mods) as pre-amp
*Epiphone Valve Junior Head
*Epiphone Valve Junior 1x12 Cabinet x 2

* = wired together as one unit

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III “Western Noir”
Marshall 2199 JMP Master Lead Combo
Vox AC-30 VR

Full Rock out gigs

Laney TF700 Head
Laney TFX 412 Cabinet


or

Marshall G100R CD with
Marshall VS412 Cabinet topped with
Marshall 1965B Straight Front Cab (4x10 inch speakers)
