Great to see all your cool gear folks ! (I am doing my best to catch up!):P

1 Dunlop pick 1.2 mm (very rare semi "see through" type) Pretty worn out but plays like a bell. One of may all time favourites !
1 Dunlop USA 2.0 mm. Maybe ?ll get rid of this one ! Way too thick for me !
1 "JIM" Dunlop 0.73 mm. Great for reversing and scraping against the strings to get that old "scraping" sound... :o
1 "Noname" Nylon mother of pearl imitation. Most likely russian. Only use it when my mother drops by. Sounds a bit.. vague to me.
1 Dunlop "USA" 1.14 mm. Purple.. moderately worn.
1 "USA" Nylon 0.60 mm. Great for Jazz !!!! Does anyone know how to play jazz.. ?
1 Fender "Heavy" This I only use for gigs. Mint Condition !

And oh btw !!!

1 Tokai Love Rock LS-150 Oak Customshop. Great for bedroom practising, and imagining I am on a huge stage with approximately 60-75.000 people worshipping me etc.
Sounds good occasionally, depending on my mood.
1 Washburn acoustic cutaway. (for slide droptuning and stupid songs I imitate) Has a built in mic. of some sort, a 9 volt battery and a female XLR connector- in case you need to feed it to a mixer/ audio interface etc.. sounds wierd on some of the frets.. especially the A and D string from the 4 to the 12 fret.. like it has a build in distortion.. sometimes it?s nice, but I would prefer it wasn?t there to begin with.. with slide there is no problem though.
1 Fender Champion 600 with D.I.Y. mod.
(accidentally I stuck a screwdriver through the fabric & the speaker..) Doesn?t really affect the sound though, since the speaker sounds like a small cardboard-box to begin with, but it looks messy.
2 jack cables. 1 "noname", and one "Dimarzio" Both with angled Jack !
Great feature ! Doesn?t affect the sound, and you can play around corners with these babies ! Great for hiding from your neighbours in your wardrobe closet !
1 Boss DS-1 (orange paint with black letters and 3 adjustable knobs to make it sound different from last time you played )
1 Line 6 pocket pod. Sounds wierd sometimes..Especially the higher frequencies, the lower frequencies and the midtones.. like an elephant stepping on the jack cable.. Must be something inside the box I guess.. Also great for bedroom practising, and imagining I am on a HUGE stage with approximately 60-75.000 people worshipping me etc.
1 "Noname" 3 to 12 volt powersupply with multiple standards interface,
probably chinese or korean.

Could I tempt the gentleman with the blue fingers with a slightly used:

1 "Noname" Nylon mother of pearl imitation Pick. Most likely russian ?

I?ll swop it for something else, like the LS 160 S?
I mean, you gig, and they have become a bit too overxposed throughout the years.. no ? :P

it's tempting but I think I'll pass on the deal this time ... but if you throw in a couple of spare string ball ends I might reconsider :wink:
