my 1st "real" guitar was a tele..with a super reverb.. after my tele got stolen i got a strat...so ya..i got used to a 25 1/2" scale..and for decades had only that combo with a few pedals..i eventually got more stuff a couple more guitars and rack mount stuff ...and stopped doing the pedal dance..my current gear is really an extension of my original stuff..so i'm very influenced by my original stuffView attachment 940841
Well, this was my gear back in 1994 Aside from the blue guitar and both amps, I still own all of it.
So what was my set up in those days?
My Squier strat into my Squier Sidekick 15 and my GEM Mars 50 with a Boss DS-1 and an Ibanez Phase tone as my pedals, that was all.
So how does that influence the gear I use today?
- Well I still use solid state amps, I used Hiwatt maxxwatt, Marshall Valvestate and a TON of Peaveys over the years but always came back to Fender amps.
- Likewise, I keep returning to Fender Style guitars, mainly strats, it's just what I'm used to.
So what about you guys?
