OK, So what is in your collection?

Post by Skybone » Sat Nov 09, 2002 12:27 pm

And not just Tokai's.

Sorry, I was just curious, as my own collection seems to be expanding (albeit slower than my waist line), I was wondering who had what in their collection/tool box/arsenal.

My money pit is:

Gibson Les Paul Studio '96
Tokai Love Rock (LS70F) '99
Ibanez Artist AR300/2619 '79
MusicMan StingRay Bass (2 band EQ) '89
Turner TG44GA Electro Acoustic


Seeing as everyone else has mentioned Amps etc:

Marshall JCM2000 TSL122
Line6 POD 2.3
Ampeg SVT15T (Nice 15" EV loaded Bass combo)
Marshall MS4 Mini stack

Marshall Guv'nor 2
Marshall Jackhammer
Marshall Compessor
EH Big Muff Reissue
EH Small Stone Reissue
EH Small Clone Reissue
EH Mini Q Tron
ProCo Vintage Rat

Modded Tokai LS200
Marshall JCM800 combo
Boss CE5 chorus box
Boss DM3 analog delay box
Boutique true bypass box for the Bosses

A wah of some description
An acoustic - Taylor Big Baby and Yamaha all-solid mahogany model shortlisted.

I chose to list everything as I believe amps/fx etc. are just as much a part of the instrument as the strings, pickups, frets or whatever.

EDIT: it may not be a lot, but it does everything I need!

Oh yeah, interested in one of these guitars? Make an offer I can't refuse. :wink:

Put a bell on the back door of the house and you can hear them comming! When I got the mini fridge I became an Island! The bell is the moat! My father is to this day my hero! :D By the way I sold the 2 Les Pauls I bought at Mars ! We have incountered turbulance! :cry:

We just love lists, don't we?

Tokai Goldstar Sound '84ish (latest addition, and top of the tree)
Epiphone Les Paul with Gibson PAFs
Brandoni Telecaster (kit)
Ibanez GRX70 (currently without frets...)
Yamaha Pacifica 112L with Seymour Duncans

All of the above are left handed.

Actually, it's just occured to me - I'm primarily a keyboard player, yet I've got one keyboard and five guitars.

Houston, we have a (GAS) problem.
