    Hmmm, let's see.

    2019 Paul's Guitar in Fire Red
    McCarty Standard in Trampas Green (No neck binding. Yuck)
    DGT Goldtop (Again, no neck binding. Seriously)
    SE One in any finish (Would strip it and hodrod it for fun. Metal flake finish? Yes!)
    Some sort of T-style guitar (maybe a relic since I've never owned a relic'd guitar)
    Friedman Smallbox head
    Mojotone 2x12 loaded with 75W Creambacks (I love Mojotone cabs)
    Boss Tube Amp Expander
    Line 6 HX Effects (just for chorus, tremolo & modulated delay. No reverb)

    Yep, that about does it. Funny thing is that this isn't actually all that crazy when you think of it.

    Bro, that’s cold. :(

    Sorry...had a busy week...

    Here’s a big reveal...I really don’t like the Santana headstock. At all. Seriously. A Tele headstock may look like a poo, but the top of a Santana headstock looks like a butt. :eek: That’s why I think the SE Santana’s got it goin’ on. (BTW, I really did own an SE Santana for about 6 hours several years ago. Told 11Top the story. Ask him.)

    • DGT quilted maple top in trans black, dog hair back and neck, w/ gold birds and gold hardware and pup covers.
    • Vela semi-hollow equipped as above except in brushed nickel, with 58/15 LT bridge and TCI neck.
    • Two (2) HXDA in stereo with switchable tone stack (plexi + blackface Super Reverb), harmonic trem, and switchable Klon boost. In black paisley.
    • Two (2) PRS 4x12s loaded with Green back/Cream back combo. In black paisley.
    • Pedalboard with newly released PRS compressor, overdrive, and fuzz pedals, plus El Capistan.
    • Fuman power protection.
    • My spec cables.

    Don’t have a pic of my gigging pedalboard, but this is close enough...

    Since there’s no budget involved...I’d add...
    -PS 594 SC
    -Soldano SLO 100
    - I’d like to have my Bad Cat hot cat 50 back
    -PS Tonare Grand, probably an Angelus too for when I need to do some stuff higher on the neck
    -something hollow, I’d need some research time

    Not all butts are created equally. I don’t think the mods would be happy with me for posting pics of the extremes at both ends of the spectrum (which rhymes with rectum btw).

    I more or less have my dream rig. Changes for me have become incremental. I more or less have all my sounds figured out, but I still experiment and periodically I’ll find something that I like better and will switch stuff out.

    I think of my guitars in terms of decades; 50s, 60’s, 70’s, 90’s, and my amps are dialed in for roughly 70s Plexi and 90s crunch and high gain type sounds.

    There has been at least 1 or 14 times that I commented to myself how “That Tremontinator guy sure has a way with words.” Or something to that effect. :p

    See, that’s what I mean, albeit a bit restrained for you. :D
