Gibson Les Paul Custom
Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul
Ibanez RG Series 170
Ovation Elite-T Acoustic

I have three Fender Strats and one Jackson. Two of the Fender Strats are "mutts" custom built by myself from various parts plundered from other high end Strats. The third Strat is stock, an American Standard. One of the "custom" Strats features a scalloped fret neck off of a Malmsteen signature Strat and Lace Sensors. The other "custom" strat has a one piece Maple neck off of a new Deluxe American Strat and Fender Texas Special pickups.

The Jackson I have is about 10 years old, I'm not even sure what model it is. It has the typical Jackson flat neck radius so it's really easy to play single note lines. The only drawbacks were that the stock pickups were junk and it was equipped with a Floyd Rose. I'm in the process of getting new pickups for it, and figuring out a way to get rid of the Floyd. FR tremolos are junk.

I play through a Vox AC30 that I loaded with Celelstions, and a Vox Tonelab SE multi-effects pedal. I also have an Ibanez Tube Screamer in there somewhere. My other amp is a mid 70s Fender Bassman 50 watt head and cabinet. The Cab has two 15" speakers, both original, neither working. I'm in the process of restoring it.

Yamaha RGX 312 - black
its seen better days, doesn't work at the moment, needs new electrics - one day i'll get it fixed up though. Although it had a black paint job, I took a power sander to it and now it has a mixture of glossy and matt black and bits of wood look to it - i kinda like it.

ESP ltd Explorer 300 - Deep (metallic) Purple
This is the one with the trem on it, got it just as Gibson were starting to sue ESP and the guitar store were trying to move all their stock before a rulling came out. Got it at a reduced price

Washburn Dime 333 - got both the Dimebolt and Dimeslime finishes
I assume that Washburn changed the build of the guitar at some point in time as the bolt has a V shaped neck and the slime has a much rounder neck. That really threw me when i first picked up the slime. Good guitar though, very comfy. I know some people who are really fussy about their gear say the pickups on the 333's were rubbish and they need to be replaced but they do the job well enough for me.

Dean Key Largo electro acoustic
Very nice guitar, managed to get this one cheap as well thanks to Ebay. And as you can see, this is the type of guitar that pictures work a lot better than a description Has a good, fairly lively, full sound to it and of course sounds good when put through an amp. And if you switch the distortion channel on, this thing produces ear splitting feedback


not planning on buying any more in the near future, but if i did (and had anywhere near enough money), it'd be between an Ibanez super-strat style guitar (ideally this one), an Epiphone Zakk Wylde camo Les Paul, a seven stringer or one of these Deans 1 2

A guild s-70 is my favorite. It's a bit like an SG.
Also have a fender strat that I hardly play and a couple acoustics. Two amps a very very old crate which I picked up used in the early 80's and an old Fender tremolux tube amp. With all that I'm a mediocre player.

Mid 70's Fender Lead II was my first "quality" electric and I still love it!
