    I often go direct into my amp (acoustic G120DSP) with just a touch of the shortest onboard reverb. Sometimes I will use headphones.

    Mine is the one where I don't set anything up or plug anything in. The guitar stays on the stand and I go hiking or biking.

    I figure after years of daily practice, 1000's of gigs and countless rehearsals, that's the best way to approach simplifying things.

    I've never seen a rack mount Uni-Vibe before. That's pretty cool.

    Why do you have two Peterson Strobo's? Is each side a separate system for two guitars?

    Like others have said, the simplest rig I have is my Martin HD28 all by itself.

    If you're talking electric, I guess it would be either my Baja Tele or my Les Paul Traditional into my Vox AC15c1.

    I've heard people say that Vox is a one trick pony of an amp, but those people can be forgiven for not knowing how to dial one in. o_O

    My simplest? My old '65 Harmony H15 plugged straight into the one trick pony, aka, Epi Valve Jr (amp is a combo but I can run it through the 1x12 cab if need be....might need an EQ pedal, depending on the room, beings as all I have at my disposal on the amp is a volume knob. The DeArmond gold foils are interesting single coils, fairly snotty :)....my best guestimate is they sound in the P90 territory - they're both at 10+K, supposedly using the type of flexible magnet found on "refrigerator magnets" (?) Dunno this for fact, ain't opening one up

    My Tele – and my eastman archtop before I got the tele, and lately my new Gibson ES 330 – straight into a humble Fender Blues jr. I used to play jazz, blues and soul with that simple setup and it never let me down – at home, in the studio and for small gigs. For bigger stages I use a Vibrolux though ...
    The Blues jr. came to me by chance. We had a gig with brazilian saxophone goddess Maria Braganca and somehow I couldn't bring an amp so our bass player brought his blues jr. and I loved it. I used his for a couple of years until I bought my own.
