Default Guitar Players

Im curious as to how many of you play guitar, and how long you've been playing, what guitar you use, ect. Me, Im using a Epiphone (it looks like a Gibson Les Paul Standard), and Ive been playing for a couple of months now.

I attended the G.I.T school (guitar institute tech) - Hollywood California. Graduated with honors and didnt score below 90% in any exam.

Played for many years / come home after 3 years and done guitar lessons for about 3 years.

Burnt myself out from 6 hrs a day practise and then lessons.

Dont touch it no more- have not for a couple of years now

Have played regularly for over 23 years now. Have been through a wide variety of setups over the years:

Guitars:
Sears SG copy (my first electric...sold it)
Sunburst 77 Gibson Les Paul deluxe (stolen from my house)
White Yamaha SBG3000 (sold it...rik emmet and santana used to play these....looks like the offspring of an sg and a les paul)
Cobalt Blue Ibanez RG 470 with a jeff beck seymour duncan in the bridge pickup position (current guitar...have had it for 10+ years). Also have a handmade acoustic I bought from some guitar makers in the philippines...not the greatest but I can get some nice recordings out of it.

Amps and FX (the teen years):
musicman 4 x 10" combo amp
mxr distortion +
boss analog delay
crybaby and morley wah pedals


Then I went modular (my 20's):
Carvin 900wt pwr amp
ADA MP-1 preamp
Multiverb II
White Marshall 4 x 12 cabinet

Current:
Back to basics with a fender blues deluxe and the ibanez. I have a bunch of other stuff I use for recording (j-station amp modeler) and some software modeling programs but I enjoy playing straight amp.

I'd like to really get back to basics and get Gibson Les Paul standard (and an american telecaster standard), Marshall Plexi reissue (SLP1959 100 wt head), and a marshall cab with greenback speakers. Apartment and budget dictate that I won't be getting those any time soon.

I could never stop playing...it's so cathartic to me....keeps me from losing my mind completely.

I used to play the bass guitar for about 6 years, but much like Kevin I don't touch it anymore. I have a Cruise Bass. It's a smaller size one because when i started i was in 6th grade, but it was a damn good bass. I miss those days : (

I've played over 20 years but not too seriously. Don't have much of my gear left either. Just a Morris acoustic (<- my first one )and an Ibanez RG-550 plus a Line6 POD2 amp/cab modeler plus some misc stuff which I don't use much anymore...

I have been playing keys and guitar for about 20 years - wow that is long. I have had the old local bands thing, and a few national releases. Sang understudy with the met, cruiseship gigs, commercial jingels, couple of movie scripts, etc...
creative hell!!!
I now am lost in 3d and the day-job; so the Martin and Ibanez are just collecting dust in the basement. I still have my ART pedals and rack, a few smashed pedals, and a zoom processor, monster cables, and a fender jazz practice amp. My last group Strobe7 got to #2 on garageband.com a few years ago, and we signed with a producer in L.A., but all the labels he shopped in 1999 said we sounded too much like Radiohead, and they dont sell records - right????????????@!!!! whatever. Hey, grow your hair, don't say that, you look too young, you look too old - hated pollitics. I still throw tracks down in Acid when I am inspired.


Got burnt out touring and gigging since I was 17, and now just engineer and Maya. What a trip that so many of us are muicians. To me, this is just musical clay anyways

I know what you mean. Before I got into web design, I graduated Full Sail's audio program and worked in various studios around NYC engineering and assisting for several years....talk about a high rate of burn out. I still have my digital studio here in the apt and write tracks from time to time.

Yup. I grew up in N. Lauderdale (pompano beach/Ft. Lauderdale area). Went to Full Sail in '92 or '93 when it was only video/audio program...now look at them withe 3D and everything else.

i play bass more than guitar,

current rig:
fender pbass (99 i think)
'72 sunn sceptre head
acoustic 420 cabinet (single 15 folded horn design)

...loud as shit

have been in punk bands for going on 7 years or so... last band toured, released 2 7"s before dissolving and had articles and interviews in maximum rocknroll and short fast & loud (kinda small genre based magazines but big deal to anyone who likes punk)

there's a picture of my old rig at www.intenseyouth.com/tba.jpg ... don't mind the quality of the picture, digital cameras getting bumped around in basements... also.. our drummer, he's not amish, he just has a beard
