What's your rig? You get 1 amp, 1 guitar, and 1 pedal.

Right now it would be this, with just the pedal in the middle (FYI, the amp is a 2x10):

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

60's Strat into a 5E3 via EH Holy Grail reverb pedal

I just had a LIKE on a post I made to this thread in January of 2018. So I read what I wrote and not a single bit of it would be the same today. So, I guess I'm another:

This week, it's......

I don't change things up THAT often, but over the course of a couple years, I'm bound to change some stuff.

1) An old style Tele (my 52 AVRI will do, as also my Baja 60s)
2) Tube Screamer
3) a nice BF amp (I guess the desert island one would be a DR) or a 5E3 (I have yet to try one… next on my to-do list). If I have neighbours I might disturb, change that to a BF/SF vibro champ and 5F1 or similar

Sorry! Not that original!

Just like @raysachs I read back and the pedal would most certainly change to a Bluesbreaker. The rest can stay.

This week:
Gibson LP Special with P90s. Maybe you could talk me into a semi-hollowbody instead?
Fender EC Vibro Champ (Tweed with built in tremolo). You could talk me into a larger Tweed as long as it's got trem--a Tremolux maybe?
A Klone Clone (I've got the MXR Sugar Drive).

Or I could plug a Taylor 812 into the board.

6 months ago I probably would have said a Hot Rod Tele or a Martin 28 HD V.

If it's an amp without trem, the Sugar Drive disappears and a trem pedal takes its place.

26 months later:
Humbucker equipped ES 335 (or Collings 335 style) into a Swart AST or AST Pro.

Amp has reverb and trem. Just need an OD. Which one?
I've never owned a real Tube screamer.

39 years? Wow, I love my Ibanez guitars and I didn't know that Ibanez made semi-hollowbody guitars that long ago! What year is it?- it is a very cool guitar!

Thanks. Mine are from 1981. The one I’ve owned since new was made in July of 1981 and the other I picked up recently is from February 1981. Ibanez were making semi hollows in the early 60’s and maybe even earlier but I think they really found their stride in the mid-70’s and perfected them a little before the 80’s. I’ve got three Ibanez guitars from 1981 and they just never fail to put a smile on my face.

I answered twice in 2018 and once in 2019 and the amp and guitar type (Strats) remained the same. I changed the pedal from compressor to a delay pedal. This year everything changed in my preference so I guess I’m in the “This week it’s....” club too.

Good OD/PRE like a Nocturne Brain or a Morley JD 10 or a Lovepedal Mosferatu or....all pedals i have, and any one will do.

Same here, except 2017. Mine has also changed, although not radically.
