Main guitar is the ex-Slowy '54 Strat reissue, and there's the Baja (with some custom wound pickups made by a guy in Nelson) that sounds great. I've also got a cheap ESP with EMGs if I'm revisiting my youth. Still got the ex-Oleg Walden acoustic too. Pedals are just the EP Booster and The Dude overdrive. Amps are the Marshall TSL100 that I put the latest board in (didn't have any of the bias-wandering issues but I upgraded anyway) into a Marshall 412 with the mix of Greenback and V30 that came from my old Friedman cab. But the main amp is my Fender 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb that, with The Dude, does everything really. It's a pretty bread-and-butter setup but gets me exactly what I want.

:-)
That's a great setup. What model is the Walden? It might be my old one :-)
Was this your old one? https://www.trademe.co.nz/2968961051

I would've been all over that if I had a bit of cash. It's been on FB for months.
That's the same model as what I had, but mine didn't have a pick guard. Oleg had it at some point. Really lovely guitar

Ooh that's super cool! Do these models not come with a trem option? That seems wacky that they wouldn't.
Nice one !

Less in the mail, more “in the office” and waiting to get home. Cheers TmcB!
