Guitarists on Dirty
Don't know if this is the best place to start this thread but.....

Today's picture and story on UWlive got me thinking. What other guitarist are on dirty/dark train?
http://www.underworldlive.com/home/m...e0/090814a.jpg

Thought we could share thoughts on gear, stories about our guitars and guitar wishlists. As well as styles, riffs, effects, etc.

If everyone thinks this is silly, then just delete this thread. But if not, add to it.

I have been playing guitar since 1990. My first one was a crappy Harmony Electric guitar my folks got for me at Service Merchandise. But I fell in love with playing almost instantly. After about a year of playing everyday for at least an hour, I had saved up enough to buy my first real Guitar, a Fender Stratocaster.

Currently, I still have my Strat and that Harmony(although I don't play it anymore).

My main electric guitars now are:
- Ibanez Iceman IC 400
- Gibson SG Special
- Fender Stagemaster Custom

So what is everyone else playing?

Re: Guitarists on Dirty
A Fender Jaguar '74, damn, that's sweet.

I play mostly heavier stuff. Drop D Tuning, or just straight D. My Iceman is tuned to C. But I wish I had a more melodic guitar, like a Fender Jaguar, for the not so "Metal" stuff I play.
But my Strat is always tuned to E. On my strat, I have an inverted/upside down single coil pick-up that gives it this raunchy punch. Makes blues sound dirty and nasty. Like bad burbon at a cheap strip joint nasty.

Tele's are sweet. I recorded with a Tele Standard a few years ago.

I have only played a Rickenbacker 12 string before, but the action was smooth.

What effects do you like to use?

Re: Guitarists on Dirty
I've got a Fender Lite Ash Telecaster (this one)
I haven't really played or practiced seriously for a long time though.

Re: Guitarists on Dirty
I play bass, but I'm going to join in anyway, because I want to show this off. - Rickenbacker 4003 (2007) Mapleglo. She cost me a freaking packet, and she was worth every penny. Every time I play her I fall in love a little bit more.

I don't really practice enough either, and even when I do, I don't practice properly, I just learn songs for my covers band. But I love playing, I'm not terrible and I manage to make a little bit of beer money out of it, so it's all good, really.

Re: Guitarists on Dirty
My father bought me my first guitar when i was 6, a little wooden acoustic. I "graduated" up to an electric Kay strat copy when i was 10, which i still have!

Today, i play on a Squier acoustic and Premier electric (this company makes drums. No idea why they bothered with guitar. But it was cheap and about fits my level of playing ability...i don't deserve any thing nicer!)

My dad grew up in the 60's, and played in bands and even made a studio record. While in a Detroit studio he claims to have met Neil Young who was busy plucking away in another room. Point is, Dad loved buying guitars, the weirder the better, so he had about 2 dozen oddball guitars in his home. The coolest is a double neck bass/6-string, and my favorite sonically is his 12-string.

The Jag is sweeeet indeed Although managed to screw up a bit with it lately since I "upgraded" the saddles to Graphtech TusQ and those damn things are not conductive and I lost grouding now there is a stupid jumperwire going from tail piece to bridge for grounging, a bit of ghetto-tuning.
Looks sexy with minty pickguard and white saddles tho.

I have bunch pedals but the most used are:

Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster, this thing is incredible in all its simplicity, although you need a good tube amp with it.

EH PolyChorus - the best

Boss CE-2 - for those The Cure moments

EH Big Muff (russian)

Boss OD-1


I wish I had a Fender Blender

and I wish I played more

the Tele Deluxe is one of these btw.

so it is far away from traditional tele, one damn pro guitar but mine needs a re-fretting soon.

Re: Guitarists on Dirty
Nice stuff.

My favorite distortion pedals right now:
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone
Boss ML-2 Metal Core
DOD Grunge

I have a bunch of different amps, Crate, Fender and Peavey. But my favorite is a Peavey 2x12 Renown. It is 220 watts. It has no real effects. But the sound quality is amazing. The volume is mind blowing. At 3 paint peels.

I use it to run a speaker cabinet to to make a 3/4 stack. It has so much power to it. I got it at a going out of business sale 7 years ago for $120.
