I did the silly driveway photo thing again (guitar version)

For about 8 years or so, the only physical grouping photo of "all" the electric gear (guitars/basses/amps/cabs) I had was one that I took on a Saturday in our old office library back in summer of 2012, before we wound up the firm. Of course, pieces come and go, so it wasn't accurate within a few years of that, if not sooner. But it's such a hassle to hunt everything down, put it all in one place, arrange it, photograph it, and then put it all back, that I couldn't be arsed to do it again. Plus, I've always done a "collage" type photo of the guitars, at least, which was very easy to update.

Anyhow, in 2020 I finally got round to dragging all the gear out on the driveway here at stately Casa Krashpad. It turned into a 2-day thing because I'd forgotten that I lent out a bass to one of my son's friends, and by the time he brought it over, it was dark, haha! But eventually it got done.

Of course, eventually I sold some stuff and bought some other stuff, but I resisted doing another "driveway grouping" simply because of the hassle factor. Until this last Saturday!

Here's the shot with the guitars added (check the amps forum for the amp shot and list of what's what):

Great photo, great collection! I've always liked your light blue Breadwinner when you've shown it off over the years on various forums we both belong to.

My back hurts just looking at tut Ampeg cab!
just moving the amps would kill me ;)

That ol' SVT is a bear to move. It predates the built-in tilt-back wheels and handle, so I added casters. But it's so heavy it eats the wheels up. Have to replace 'em every few years.

Most of the bigger cabs (the SVT, the Marshall 4x10, the Risson 4x12, the Woodson 1x15, and the Kustom 1x15) do have casters. Still, several of the combos are also heavy as feck (especially the Ampeg and Vox 2x12s, and the Super 2x10 top), and for anything like that I have an old skateboard I use as an amp truck.

Great photo. I will use your photo when my wife tells me I have too much gear. One question though....Where are the pedals?

Thanks. Honestly I'm not much of a pedal guy. Excluding channel switching ones (and an A/B/Y for the Vox), I've got maybe a dozen or so very basic, inexpensive ones. I guess some day I should do a shot of them, if only to document what I have, haha.

When I see forum posts for "show your pedal board" I usually post the attached photo. Then again, I've always been a smart-ass, so consider the source. ;)
