Yes. That'll do for starters. The cool as fuck Custom or the, on paper at least, superior PRS?


Not superior to me. Kind of like a German car that does everything well, except have charm, character and personality - give me a flawed muscle car anyday.


I hear ya. I don't think 'Sympathy for the Devil' could ever have been written on a PRS. I'd whack a rusted Bigsby on that Custom, drop four stone and get my Keef on. :-)

Yeah, I'm taking the piss, but still somewhat right in saying that. My German ancestry loves the PRS precision, my other English/Irish/Scottish ancestry just wants to drink and party, with the old timey pioneering Fender/Gibson instruments my heros play.

Watched most of “The Captain meets John Petrucci” today. Such a humble, well spoken guy (Petrucci that is). Now I really want a Majesty guitar. Since getting the Axis I can really see myself getting a few more Music Man guitars; fine instruments!

I know you've been wanting one of those for ages - I'm glad that you got one :-)

Thanks man. Glad I held out for a good version of one.

Shame about the wide thin but I mean, fuck. Just look at it.
Floyd model is cool but not a fan of the colours.

Bonus round: Captain meets greg koch was pretty good.

In Christchurch Rockshop this morning my eye was drawn to a used three-pickup LP Custom. Price tag was hefty but it looked the business. Sales guy drew to my attention that it'd had some work including weight relief! Sure enough, when you tipped it in the light you could see two large areas on the back that'd been routed out and covered. Also, I don't think it was originally three pickup. Anyway, though for all of the above reasons that one wasn't for me I am now gassing for a black LP Custom. There's one floating around here and another on TM that I think could go for about $3,700 in an outside deal.

Hnnngh.... Guitars! Why do you do this to me?

This year has brought me:
The single best OD pedal I've ever owned. (Rockbox Boiling Point)
A sublimely perfect amp. (Optimus Prime)
A great snotty guitar (PRS SE ONE with Lollar P90)
A guitar so far above my pay grade I still open the case with a sense of wonder. (Duesenberg Starplayer)

GAS? Hell, I'm just overcome with gratitude! :rofl:

The Yamano that Faceless has surely must be on your radar? It's so cool.

I have my eye on this one: https://www.themusiczoo.com/collections ... itar-ebony

Played a Ricky 330 at musicplanet and that's just fed my rickenbacker gas. Thought the little neck would put me off them but it really didn't. Played nicely.

My guitars change so often I swear I have to pause to recall what I've now got. Can't be fecked to list all that have come and gone this year but I'm seeing 2017 out with the following:
- Radian Tele
- 2014 SG Standard (both ex.Nik)
- 89 Strat Plus
- LP Classic (bought back for the fourth time)
- Takamine acoustic - just a cheapie I've had about ten years

Happy with my amps. Friedman Dirty Shirley Mini and 1x12 cab. Marshall Bluesbreaker combo (needs some work). Bought a BOSS RV-6 today. That and my The Dude overdrive are my only pedals.

I'm very happy with my guitars now. The only thing I have moderate GAS for, guitar-wise, is a Rickenbacker 360 in Maple Glo, for some weird reason!!

Still want a good American Vintage Reissue P-Bass, and a Fender Princeton Reverb '65 RI amp.

Duo sonic or a mustang... :mrgreen:
I think the duo sonic is really cute. I don’t know why. It’s like a little puppy that always wants to play.
