    Holy snap, you have some stuff. I hope your amps are worthy of your guitars.

    She's a heffer at 10.2 pounds, but that is the reason these things sound so good... The heavy northern ash body makes these sound decently thick, otherwise the 5.45k pickups would be pretty wimpy. The hardtail helps in this department as well, as does the flat magnet configuration. These are my favorite kind of strats!

    Well, my work bench amp is a modified Vox Pathfinder 10, I have a '78 Fender Champ, and I have a new Fender Bassman LTD RI which is currently halfway across the country getting re-wired to original "Tweed" specs by a generous fellow forumite. Sound good? :)

    I'd say that my "#1" go to guitar is the Road Worn Custom with the 70's Gibson mini humbucker in the neck slot... She just resonates beautifully, like it's an extension of my arm. Plus I can get any sound I want from it except for Strat sounds, which is why the '78 is my next fave. They all sound great though, I'm really obsessive about my tone and some of these have been through many incarnations before they ended up where they are... I can honestly say that I am happy with all of them right now! :) Now I just have to finish my pine Telemaster build... Lol

    Awesome collection! What specifically are you expecting different after having the work done on the Bassman? I played one in a store and thought they were phenomenal sounding as is. This, btw, was the LTD version not the original reissue ones that first came out.

    Nice. Very nice.

    But where are all the rest of them? Gibsons, Martins etc.?

    I mean, to live up to a name like Guitarfreek don't you need 20 guitars at least?

    :^)

    You're young; you'll get there. In the meantime, Enjoy!

    Yeah, this is a 2010 lacquered Tweed over pine cabinet '59 Bassman LTD RI. It sounds useable as is (even better with 5881's), but after looking at the cheap wire and circuit boards used in the chassis I became nauseous! Lol There are many differences between the reissues and a real '59, so I sent it out to get that warmer, cleaner vintage tone by being hand wired with better quality components to 5f6a specs. The oldest Bassman I ever played through was a 1960 model, and there was no comparison between that and my LTD. At least these new reissues have the pine cabinet (like an old one), so they're a good platform to "make right." I also have a line on a set of older blue frame Eminence speakers, which will help too.

    Well you asked... From L to R: 1973 Alvarez model 5049, 1977 Yamaha G-55A, 2011 Gibson SG 60's Tribute, 1983 Gibson The Paul, 1971 Gibson SG-200, and laying down is the first guitar I ever built (in my metal head days), an Alder body, flame maple top Warmoth Iceman body with a 5-piece maple/walnut and ebony fretboard Carvin neck.
