    Got a new (to me) amp so I’m fine tuning my rig for an upcoming gig.

    The amp - Mesa Express Plus 5:50

    Pedal board that I will use

    I will definitely take the PRS (it’s my #1) and will probably take the tele as well, but I sometimes take a Gretsch instead of the tele.

    Very nice. I wish I could find a band (or a jam?) like that — hand percussion to keep the volumes a little under control. Nothing against drummers but I find I now have to wear earplugs most rehearsals and gigs.

    Anyway, what kind of music?

    Solid state Polytone. Why: sounds great, reliable, portable, good platform for pedals. 15522062330391142797865.jpg
    Good for playing in bars and clubs, and at home. Mostly Americana, some jazz, some blues ...

    We're all in our 50's & 60's, and do a mix of covers and originals. 3 lead singers, rotating through each set. Mix of classic rock, some alternative, blues, country, John Prine, more Buffalo Springfield than ZZ Top. We try to bring in new songs every month. Only a couple songs turn into slightly longer jams - more song oriented than jam.

    Sounds pretty much identical to my last band, but we did do a few newer rock songs.

    This is my gig rig, the Goodsell Super 17 and my choice of my guitars,..

    Edit: Missed the why part. The top guitar w/ p90, is my go to gig guitar, covers a wide range of territory. I set the Goodsell so there's just enough hair on the bridge and mid position, when I go to the p90 it really sings, don't need or use an overdrive. Both guitars have conversion scale necks, wide nut, Budz custom pickups. The brown unit is chambered. The Goodsell s17 is the best gig amp I've owned of many high end amps (and low end too). Just perfect. The tube tremolo moves the room, something about the EL84s and tremolo.
