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.:wow

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.
