    for newbies only (under 200 posts) what model LP and amp do you play the most and why

    i'll go first.

    i like my 01 std+ with antiquities most of all. i play it into either a silverface champ or silverface bassman into a 2x12. nothing added other than a distortion or boost pedal. i gotta go with the champ with the pharoah class-a-boost in front as my favorite setup. it gets that nice tubey breakup sound. on a rare occasion i'll use a digitech all in one pedal on a filthy setting to exorcise my metal demons. and i gotta confess that i still really dig abusing the '79 "the paul" on occasion also.

    i hope the wise old sages of the LPF are not offended by this thread. i apologize for excluding them but i really am interested in hearing from some of the 4000+ members who, like myself, spend the great majority of their time here reading.

    to those wise old sages, i enjoy the great majority of the info and a lot of the humor you all share here. many thanks.

    2001 Les Paul Standard Plus (dessert burst) throught a Boss GT-5 multiefx, Peavey 5150 Head and ENGL 4x12 cab with Celestion V30. Using the 4 cables method to be able to use the Peavey preamp gain into the GT-5 loop. I use that amp dist for the heavy stuff. For overdrives/cleans/efx, the signal go throught the GT-5 directly to the power amp section using preamp modelers.

    '95 Classic or '97 TV Jr double cut into either a Laney VC30 112 or a Fender Pro Jr, depending upon how tiny the gig is. For pedals I'll either use a Marshall Bluesbreaker Mk I or a Fulltone Fulldrive II flat mids.

    I use a 1958 Goldtop and a VHT Pittbull through 2 Marshall Basketweave cabs with pre Rola G12H's with 014 cones (bass). I use this set up the most for it's crushing tones at low and high volume. :dude Most of the time it's in my living room on stand-by.

    Gary Moore Signature into a DSL100 w/1960A 4x12. The Gary Moore just has a vibe and playability I really like and the DSL has tons of tone. I still haven't played an 800 that compares.

    98 R8 through a 65 Fender Pro Reverb with 2 12" EVM speakers. Even though the pro can't even shake the EV's I love the combination. I also have a y2k Goldtop darkback and I play slide on an SG Standard tuned to open E. For acoustic I have a Taylor 710CE a dobro and a Weber mandolin

    I rotate between playing a `99 R9,`00 R7, `00 R9,`01 R8, and an`01 R9 into an assortment of vintage and tweaked reissue Marshalls and tweed Fenders and Fender clones. I`ve been using a 1972 Superlead or a RI 1987x into either a RI checkerboard slant cab or a #1982 straight cab with G12H 30`s for the originals band I`m in. For blues/rock I use any of my amps, depending on my mood, and I`ll also use Strats.

    Y2K R7 Goldtop, and 02 Std. Prem +, through an '87 Boogie MK III head into a '69 Marshall 4X12. In smaller venues I use a Boogie wide body 1X12 instead of the Marshall.

    LP Custom with BB3 in the bridge through a Ampeg VL 503 for gigging and practice. I use a PV C30 at home. The PV sounds way better with my tele. The Ampeg sounds way better with my LP.

    Guess I'll chime in here -

    88 Showcase Edition Standard -> Samson Airline AG-1 wireless thru a 5150 half-stack with a BBE 362 and Rocktron Hush.

    DAMMIT - I didn't realize I was well over 200 posts - how the hell did I manage that?

    I have a 2002 Les Paul Standard in wine red (currently getting Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro neck and Custom 5 bridge pickups installed), and that is plugged into a Teese Picture Wah pedal, which then goes directly into my Rivera Chubster 40 amp. Occasionally, I may throw in my Boss GE7 equalizer pedal, but that is rare. I may shell out for a Boss DD-5 delay pedal someday.

    97 LP Custom or 99 LP Special (see my avatar) throught a Fender Blues Jr. I don't gig so the extra watts don't help me at all. The Blues Jr. is a fine amp for low(er) volume playing. Great smoooooth tube tone.

    Both LP's are all stock. I like the 498T pick-up and the 490R's are livable for now.
