    I also have a Vox AC30TB (it is actually my wife's. It was her engagement ring )

    My favorite amp is my old 15 watt tube Vox Berkley II Super Reverb Twin

    That is SWEET!

    I'm playing acoustic only right now. I have a black Art & Lutherie. I really like it.

    I wish I knew how to use tapping for texture, ala Minus the Bear. I'm still stuck in that Rhodes/EVH tapping as a tool for solos thing

    Very cool, man. I'm sure lessons will get you all fixed up. I was broke when I first got a guitar at a garage sale, so I could only pay for one lesson. But awesomely, that lesson taught me everything I needed to get started. He gave me a list of the basic chords, notes, scales. And taught me "Knockin on Heaven's Door." This was before internet so it was really helpful.

    Anyway, one tip: start writing songs now, if that's something you're interested in. I wrote some cool stuff when I had no idea what I was doing.

    I had no idea there were that many players on the board.

    I play guitar and bass. I've been a semi professional bass player locally for several years. I play guitar at home and in church. There are just too many guitar players to compete with in bands and everybody's looking for a bass player.

    For guitar influences, my Mount Rushmore would include David Gilmour, Phil Collen, EVH, and Vernon Reid. With Eric Johnson just off to the side

    Anyway my bass rig is a Modulus Flea bass through an Ampeg SVT4 through the SVT810AV cab. No effects just straight goodness.



    My guitar rig changes like the wind. My main guitars are an 88 Strat I've had forever, a MIM Strat:



    Yes that's my Cap replica shield hanging next to it.

    And I have my dads 57 Duosonic that I got after he passed away:



    My amp is a Fender Blues Junior. And I love pedals so I've got a few of those.


    Thanks to TheKraken for the awesome sig!!
