    Then there was the gig where this gal started hitting on me and told me that she had left her husband. When I asked her when she did that she said, "about 10 minutes ago" and lo and behold there he was. Of course that picture is a semi true story and it was always out in the truck where it ought to be but when I played those places it was there.

    Sometimes some picks, sometimes my attenuator, no adult beverages (well, beverages of any kind) due to it being top vented

    If I'm not using a pedalboard, I velcro my TC Polytune mini tuner and Rolls IEM amp to the top of the amp. I love quick load in/out setups!

    No tchotchkes though.

    To answer your question... no. Maybe a bottle of water or a pick.

    Plenty of beverage container rings on top my amp, and a few cigarette burns. Gave up the smokes, still adding bottle rings.

    I keep a BOSS EQ-200 equalizer on top of mine. Is it a prop? It’s always on so it’s more than a prop. There’s sometimes a capo. I don’t use the capo much so it’s closer to a prop. Back in college I played with a bass player who kept a lit cigarette on top of his amp head. I can’t imagine a prop like that today.

    What model of Eastman is that? I don't recognize it. I have a T 486 which is a bit different than yours.

    Nothing like that; just a slide, a capo, and picks.

    I have a Tele neck sitting on my amp. One day it will grow into an entire Tele.

    I do not.
    That would feel like clutter.

    picks, slide, wipe-down cloth ... sometimes a harp or two; and a capo if an acoustic is involved. Never a beverage on top for me!

    Way back I had a tie-dye Garcia Bear sitting there on top of the SFVR, and later this little plastic box that bllnked different colored lights, that was a promo for McCartney's "NEW" album. Grumpy band members grumbled about them at gigs so I ceased and desisted in the name of harmony.

    Picks. Capo. Clip on tuner(s). Cables draped over the top when they are not in use. Screwdrivers for adjusting intonation. Recently, a paper showing modelling settings.

    Props? No. I have enough junk in my office.

    I used to have the furry guy named Bill in my profile pic. Unfortunately, he had a bad habit of chewing telephone cords. One day when I came home from work I found him dead. I took him to the vet for cremation and she looked him over and said it appeared he had burn marks in his mouth. When I got home I found that he had also chewed lamps cords and probably shocked himself.

    Non-feline items tend to fall off amps so I generally don't leave anything other than an occasional pic on top of them.

    Sometimes another amp - otherwise nothing I'd have to move to take the amp out to play somewhere.
