Have played regularly for over 23 years now. Have been through a wide variety of setups over the years:
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
White Marshall 4 x 12 cabinet
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.
