    Why is no one answering the "and why" part?

    I would be interested to hear why people like their setup.

    I play the custom and the Ampeg VL 503(with tesla tubes) with a closed back gretsch cabinet with 2 12inch speakers because VL stands for Very Loud and it truly sounds great for hard rock/punk.

    Not too buzzy like a Peavey 5150. With the LP it sounds more like a classic Marshall than our other guitar players Marshall JCM 900.

    Here it is

    Since I put Burstbuckers in my early 90s LP Classic I have had trouble putting it down. They work very well for my guitar and my tastes.

    I also have to get out the old '74 20th Anniversary Custom every once in a while cause it sounds so nice.

    I run it through a Peavey Classic 50 410 cause that's all I got. I'm eyeballing a Carr Rambler or maybe a '65 Deluxe Reverb, but haven't convinced myself to pull the trigger for that much cash.

    For home recording I run it through a Johnson J station.

    Will I get kicked off the board if I admit I play my PRS McCarty almost as much as my LPs?

    69 Custom (usually) direct to a Blonde/Oxblood Fender Bassman Head and Twin Cab. Why??? I like the bottom end and clean crisp tones. I have been know to run it thru any number of pedals too.

    OK....

    A 1980 Custom into either a '73 VibroChamp, '78 or '81 jmp2204, JTM45RI, DSL100 or Magnatone 460 Custom. A visual Sound h2o pedal, SD-1 or TS-9 in between sometimes.

    And why?
    The Custom because that's the only LP I have (discounting a '99 SG Standard), but it's probably the VC that it gets paired with the most because they both reside upstairs!

    2002 Desertburst Standard through a Germino Rockgrinder Combo!

    Why? It is my first LP an my first "nice" amp. I did a bunch of research and comparison shopped a bit. The burstbuckers sounded better than the 490/498. The Rockgrinder overwhelmed the Marshall Bluesbreaker RI that first impressed me. So much time to shop and so little money!

    74 20th anniversary (Cherry burst) though a 66 SR or a 69 DR


    Why? Because i love the sound of the old Fender amp with the LP's. I have a killer Custom Shop Strat that i can't seem to play anymore because i love my paul's tone so much more... I know that they are two different animals and that's why i will keep the Strat around for that tone that is only the Strat...

    R7 GT,95 TV Yellow double cutawaySpecial and an EDS 1275 into a Rivera Quinana 2x12.
    Why?
    Wellllllllllll thanks to the LPF, I could no longer maintain a happy existence unless I got that durned old Goldtop! Still ain't figured out why I felt the need for a doubleneck yet.
    As fer the Quinana, I had went out Marshall huntin one morning, but Dave at Big Harry's convinced me to try out his Rivera. It sounded so good (bear in mind this was the 3rd or
    4th amp I tried that morning) that my wife came running up from the back the of store & said "THAT'S THE ONE!" God bless her. Now if she'd just help me move that heavy sumbitch sometimes.

    76 Wine Red Custom through a CyberTwin.

    Why?

    Because the CT is so versatile and affords me a multitude of sounds. I don't gig (yet), and it is hard to imagine lugging that beast around, but it doesn't bother me.

    Why the LP Cust? It is the only LP I own. I play my 67 Gretsch and 84 Strat through it too.

    96 Les Paul STD HCSB(with Rio Grande BBQ & Texas pick-ups),99 American STD Strat(with the pick-ups from the Les Paul installed),and an old beat 73 strat(set up for slide) through a TSL122(with two vintage thirties) and a JCM900 4102.The pre-amp from one of the loops on the TSL feeds the power-amp in of the JCM900.Echo is provided by an original Boss DD2 and modulation comes courtesy of Marshall Supavibe(both live in the effects loop).I use this set up because i love my guitars-i worked on them for years to get them sounding and playing just the way i want them too,and you just cannot beat a marshall for classic,instantly identifiable all-out rock/blues tones.

    Lately

    An '01 Class 5 bone stock through a Line6 Flextone II XL.
    Why? 'cause it's simple and it gets the sounds I like.

    Of course this rig is subject to change with no notice.

    '02 LP Custom '68RI through a Laney TT20 Head and matching 12" cab. I play straight through and just love the pure tube sound. For playing live I play through a Laney AOR 50 head with a 4x12 Celestions Laney cab. It's brutal!

    Honeyburst Standard purchased new in 1999, modd with creme Dimarzios-Super 2 neck&Super Distortion bridge into late model Hot Rod Deluxe. Incredibly hot, thick LP tone a la Al DiMeola or Frank Zappa. All i've got in terms of electrics, in addition to a Guild Starfire III and American Double Fat Strat Hardtail.

    I'm always amazed at the range of sounds from my arsenal. For such similar models they have drastically different voicings each and every one. I've learned a lot about my collection just since I've been coming here. (I had never noticed that the horn shape changed, now that it was pointed out here, I'm embarassed how obvious it is!) I have two of the Bacon Les Paul books that were my reference manuals for years. I wish this forum had been around a long time ago.

    EpihoneStandard Flame top through a Pig Nose amp with half dead batteries. Why? Because that's how I get that Jimmy Page sound everyone is looking for.

    I guess I'm one of the lower folks on the totem pole here, heh. Nothing real fancy. I mostly play my '89 Wine Red Les Paul Studio through a Randall RG100SC 100-Watt solid state 2 - 12" combo amp or my '64 Gibson GA-5 Skylark Crestline. Although I also play my '89 American Standard Stratocaster too. I guess the why would be that I had been given the strat and the little gibson amp for graduation from high school back in '91, and always wanted something better suited for metal and modern music. The randall amp just seemed like a lot of amp for the 300 bucks it cost me, and I've always thought les paul's were nifty, plus it was the best guitar I could afford that sounded good to me in town in the price range ($700). I tried several new Ibanez's and whatnot, and almost bought a PRS Santana SE, but after playing the LPS. I bought it and so far, have yet to look back.

    Have to say the 78 "The Paul" with Sperzel black tuners, black Gibson hardware and EMG (81/85) pickups outplays em all. I use a Mesa Boogie Studio 22+ amp loaded with a JBL E120 speaker.

    I can't believe the best playing guitar I own is also the lowest priced! Although my 2000 PRS Cu22 and my 70 LP DeLuxe are both VERY nice!

    I am considering moving up to a Boogie Mk IV. But I want to try out a couple others like Bogner etc.

    '01 R7 or '02 FB VII into a Vox AC15TBX although I am sitting here with a '99 Smartwood tuned down a half step on my lap now. No matter what else I'm playing (torturing would be a better term for my playing) I always come back to the goldtop:dude

    57 RI or TV Special into 71 Superlead halfstack or 55 tweed Pro or 59 Bassman RI converted to handwired, sometimes using the original Brown Fender reverb unit, sometimes multi-amped w/ ABY box. Also 64 Candy Apple Red strat into above.
    Why? Because I like to feel my pants legs in the breeze.

    i play my 2002 standard through a clark beaufort, a fender champion 25, solid state practice amp, and every once in awhile, i take out a fender custom vibrolux reverb, new version...the 02 is the only LP i own, and my preference of amps is the clark beaufort...cant say enough good things about mike clark's amps, if you are into the tweed thing...

    Guitar- 93 studio

    Why- Cos it was cheap ($300,)

    I love playing the smooth ebony fingerboard,

    I've played it constantly for years which makes it easy to play (It's molded into my body)

    I've modded it to bits and bash it around cos it's my work horse.

    I have many other guiters that a more expensive but I don't play them as much.

    Amp- I run a 60's JMI Vox AC30TB with a 73 Marshall superlead.

    Why- Cos vintage amps sound better.

    The two amps together compliment each other and sound amazing. Its a thick wall of tone.

    I hav'nt found a nice old fender I've liked yet, I no there out there but no one wants to share with me.

    Leftylespaul where in NZ are you from???

    By the way I have no idea how many posts I've done I'm guessing about 100.

    I find it funny most of you guys spend more $$ on your guitars than you do amps. Why do you do this???

    Amps effect tone more than guitars.

    Having lots of guitars means buying lots of strings this annoys me. At least with tube amps tubes can be swapped around etc..

    I find guitars don't feel nice to play, if you haven't played them for awhile. Eg neck feels sticky, strings are old

    Amps sound great if unused for a month or two.

    Guitars sound better when used often. Well I can't claim this but it feels like they do.

    Anyone want to enlighten me.

    guitars:

    Jimmy Page Signature
    Slash
    Zakk Wylde Rough Top

    amps:
    Legacy 100 w/Marshall 4X12 and Boogie 4X12

    All I play is the Jimmy Page. Got it used, feel like I can play without worrying about banging it up. The others are more for collecting.

    The Legacy is extemely very versatile.

    Standard and a Classic through a few different amps. 410 DeVille, 112 Deluxe, 112 Reverend, 212 Bel-Air, and a 65TwinReverbRI. Although with the Twin I use my 335 mostly. I use to run it through a JCM800 A/B'd with the Twin. Funny how things work. My first stage amp was a 68 silverface Bandmaster 100w with a 412 cab, this was back in 68,69,70. Since then I tried Marshall, Vox, Mesa, Peavey, I guess you could say I've gone full-circle with the amps. I'm pretty much back to Fender now.

    I only have a 96 Classic Goldtop in mint condition (with no green on the frets) but it competes with a JEM and a Lonestar Strat for playing time. I play it through a JCM600 halfstack or a seldom used Fender Studio 85. I also have a BOSS GT5 and more pedals than a guitar shop has but they are used only when absolutely necessary. I prefer straight through or maybe a compressor when going to tape. As soon as I can afford it I will dump the tape and move to hard drive.

    '83 LP Custom and a Rivera TBR-1SL amp. The Custom is a bit of a beater but it has a tone like no other.

    I just bought a Dual Recto and I suspect this will become my main amp. The Custom doesn't get along so well with it. I also own a 91 Classic that seems to be a better match for the Recto.
