I'll get in on this.
-I have a Telecaster-style electric hand made in '97 by a guy named Mike Dawson, a friend of my uncle's who lives in Grabill. I would not get rid of that guitar if I had to choose between it and one of my huevos.

-Hand made steel string accoustic made in '92 by a guy named Steve Cloutier in Minnesota.

-1974 Guild MK-5 classical

-1976 Guild D-50 steel string, converted in to a lap slide...but I think I'm going to put the old nut back on it and just have it as a regular accoustic again.

(I am a firm believer that, the more minimal you go, the more pure your sound is...and therefore better. This is just my opinion, though)

-Marshall JCM800 half-stack (circa 1986-ish). I thought about selling it for a while and buying a Fender Twin, but then changed my mind.

-I only use 2 pedals for sound: and Ibanez TS9 (for a little boost) and a Boss Delay/Reverb pedal (the exact model escapes me at the moment, and it's at our practice space right now...and I really only use it for one solo on one song). I also have a Boss TU2.

-I also have a Crate TV6212 that I use for a practice amp. It's the only Crate I have ever played that I liked, and it has served me well.
a repo man is always intense.

Right now I gig with a Harmony Broadway. Here's someone else's:


The fretboard was redone unprofessionally, and I need to get it leveled out. I'm still trying to find strings I like. (D'Addarrio .013 phosphor bronze were the best so far, but I might go thiner if I can find something with a nice mellow tone.) She's my baby though, and until I can afford the 3k for something I'll like more, she's my main acoustic.
