    What would your rig be if you could have only 1 amp, 1 guitar, and 1 pedal?

    Here are some guidelines:
    (1) You don't have to have owned any of this gear. It can be dream gear.
    (2) You can't say a Fractal or amp simulator of any kind. It has to be a physical amp.
    (3) The pedal can't be some kind of honkin' multi-function thing. I'm thinking of basically one effect.
    (4) If you want to substitute an outboard 6G15 reverb unit (or any other) for the pedal, you can.

    I haven't played through enough stuff to speak intelligently of a dream rig (though I imagine a brown Tolex Fender could be my amp in that scenario), so I'll stick with some things I know. For now:

    AMP: vintage Deluxe Reverb
    GUITAR: 50's-style Les Paul with P-90's
    PEDAL: Boss Blues Driver

    I'm tempted to reply my D-18GE, and a Neumann KM184, but that's not a pedal. Or an amp. :lol:

    Besides, I'd be jonesing for an electric rig before I got done playing two songs.


    So.... Collings SoCo, and a Victoria Golden Melody. You can keep the pedal.

    Totally fine to skip the pedals.

    Since the fellow in the video isn't from the UK, I assume this isn't you? I saw this video a few months back, and I thought: Dang, that sounds fantastic!

    20170909_135137.jpg My surf green home made USACG tele, my JC120 and my RAT. I feel like I could do most of it fine with just that and my volume and tone knobs.

    So there, I already have my dream guitar rig! Yay!

    My current beater strat and Princeton Reverb clone. The older I get the less pedals i use, so I don’t need one.

    A Gretsch Chet.
    I have it.
    A Roland Cube 80XL.
    I have it.
    A Boss DM2 delay.
    That's it.
    My second choice for an amp would be a BF Twin.

    I’ll play.

    My ‘52AVRI into my Rivera era Concert amp.

    I guess I could use my Radial ABY pedal. That would give me everything from clean to mean.
