alvarez acoustics rock!

i have a 75th anniversary commem. edition alvarez artist series midnight special 6 string.. i love it

my first electric is an ibanez strat copy that i call the uber-strat (h-s-h- and floyd trem). currently for sale!

an ibanez rg370dx also currently for sale, about 2 months old, and i quit playin it after a month

i quit playing it because i got an rg 570, my main axe, now.

i also have a yamaha dgx-202 keyboard, pretty sweet for quickly coming up with progressions to record and jam over. sounds for it are generic, but it gives you rhythm and drum parts for like 100 different styles to record with, all you have to do is play 1 chord to change the key it's playing it.

also a yamaha yas-23 alto sax that i've had since 5th grade (im a senior in college).

and my fiancee's flute and gemeinhart or something piccolo.

hmm i think that's it til i get a violin and she gets a cello!

Squire Affinity Strat. It's five years old, and it's been a piece of shit the past 2 1/2 years, but I can't afford a new one. It's the only guitar I've ever owned, and every single tab I've made has been using that guitar. It's very difficult to tune accurately. Most of my tuner caps were missing for a while ( I had to tune those strings with a wrench), I installed new machine heads last summer, they were taken off of a broken Charvel neck.

I have no amp or pedals, although I used to, they are all broken now. I play through my computer, I like ReValver, although I wish it had some flanger on it...

I always use Dunlop Tortex picks (either .5 or .6mm, red and orange), but I'll use whatever strings I can find.

I can't believe it's still playable. Actually, another thing that's wrong with it is that my bridge has been fucked up for a while, too. I would put in a new string, and if I tried to pick it, it would make a *clank* kind of sound because it would be far too low and resting on the frets. I have to jam something underneath part of it in order for it to even be playable. I'll take a picture of it and show you soon, it's fucking hilarious.

No shit! I guess you put that guitar through so much playing it couldn't take anymore, along with your amp and pedals! I would love to see what you could get done musically if you had some quality gear.

Yeah, I'd like to get a new guitar soon, although if I did get the money, I'd probably prioritize getting a new computer first. I have no idea what I'd get though. Probably something cheap, like $250 or $300 tops. I'd definitely need a single locking tremolo so that tuning wouldn't be much of a problem anymore. I can dream if I want to.

wanna buy my rg370dx for $300 (includes shipping)?

mint condition, upgraded the humbuckers to the v7 and v8 on the prestige lines, so it sounds pretty hot. 2 months old, barely played. i have a 570 that i play on instead, and gotta sell 2 of my guitars to pay bills and whatnot comes with a tkl hard shell, new.

it has a double locking trem, but the edge pro 2 is the best trem you can get in that price range.. it's really sweet. much better than lower end jackson floyds

I like buying cheap guitars and making them kickass for some reason.
1. My main guitar, is my washburn which kicks ass. I will be doing a lot of things to this guitar. When I'm done with this guitar it will probably be worth a hell of a lot more.
2. Acoustic guitar, Olympia by Tacoma
3. BC Rich body art JRV ( the one with all the skulls on it)
4. Jackson RX10D. Got real cheap on ebay, dont play it that much though.
5. This cheap Peavey starter strat guitar that I got on ebay for $60. It actualy doesn't play to bad. And I did a EVH make over looks kinda like this now
6. My very first guitar that was also cheap starter stat. I havent done anything to this guitar.
7. Some Vantage bass that I got real cheap at a music store. I dont play bass so I dont really use it very much.
8. And finally this explorer shaped copy guitar. Hondo I think the company is.

That is all.


a guitar doesnt have to be expensive to kick ass.
but i get what u meen.

I would if I had the money, but I'm broke, man. I appreciate the offer, though.

I own a:

BC Rich Platinum Series Warlock (this one is my pride and joy)

Ibanez RG450. I lent this to a mate and it came back with the neck so badly damaged that you cant palm mute it properly. I am still waiting on his money to pay to have it re-aligned

Valencia Acoustic. My first guitar and it costed me a mere $90

I have sold my first electric which was an "SX" strat copy.

Also i used to have a yamaha bass when i picked up bass.

Here's a short video of my guitar, it sounds much better in person. Just some random crap, nothing special, filmed with night cam porno style since the lighting in my computer room sucks.

Thanks, few mistakes but oh well. Wish I could record longer, cam only has an 8meg memory card, that's about one minute of video.

I think a forum dedicated to recording would be cool. Darko? Other admins? *hint
