Traded the Friedman today, had to get some cash to support the motorcycle habit. I was worried about going for the Express 5:50, but its actually a really nice amp. I changed out some tubes to brighten it up a bit and its sounding great. I would do a NAD but its probably not booteek enough to warrant it.

What’s the guitar, Nik? And are those tone napkins in the crafter?

I had the express 5:50 head for a while. Nice amp, great clean, but too fat and round for me. I sold it for a dual rectifier so I could chug a bit more readily.

The mesa Maverick is pretty special if you ever see one.

It's a John Page Ashburn HH.

Yep that rag is from 1959 and was stored next the long tenons in the Gibson factory all year.

What do you think about the John Page :P ?


Excellent guitar, just like a Suhr but without the "Vogue" tax.

New Setup:

Image

Tele is from Oldie, seems to be a clone of a Jim Root sig, might even be a squier or similar, still have my Tokai SG, SX Strat and my 5 string bass, but this is my go to atm.

The firehawk FX has been around for a while, not sure if i want to upgrade it to a helix version or not, time will tell.

The amp is an ISP Stealth from Nik(Zaulkin), Cab is an Orange PPC112 in black from RSDave.

Actually fits nicely under here where it will prob live for ages:
Image

Need to work out what length cables i need and replace the pedal - amp and amp - cab ones with new and better quality ones(these are cheap 20 year old ones).

This is the current state of play. Going to have to think about how I'll get it all back to NZ. Thinking maybe buy a caravan and stuff it with gear then ship that back and sell it on to help cover the cost. Or just live in it when the Mrs throws me out... :-(

Wow, that is a haul! Leave the family behind and book a seat per guitar perhaps?
Highly likely the bank will be bare at the time, but dibs on the 77 Strat if ya move it on. Birth year n all.

This set up looks so clean and I love it.

So here is my full setup (at my current location....)

Overkill for a Hong Kong apartment? Certainly. Excessive? Most definitely. But I have never been as happy with my sound(s) and I am inspired to play, which I do for hours at a time. I regret nothing!

More detailed photos of the pedalboard in another thread.
