Back in the day when I was doing large gigs it was my '91 Les Paul Standard with a Dimarzio Norton in the bridge through two Marshall half-stack rigs: "dry" JCM 800 2204 and the other was "wet" Midi setup with a Marshall JPM-1 preamp, Carvin power amp, and ART Multiverb Alpha 2.0 digital effects unit.


Nowadays the old live rig hangs in the garage mostly silent.


Today it's either the 'ol '91 Les Paul (now with MSSC harness and Sheptone PAFs) through one of these amps below or more often than not just because it's the one I leave laying around outside the case, it's the '19 Original Collection Les Paul Special through my 5E3 Tweed Deluxe clone.

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.
