I don't play as much as I could, but yeah I have a light blue Mexican made Strat that I got in 7th grade because it reminded me of the one Billy Corgan played.....ha ha.

I also have a really nice electric-acoustic Ibanez that I'm not even sure of the model. I bought it a few years ago for like 375, but I got a really good deal on it because my bandmate worked at the music store and got stuff for pretty much what the store paid.....I think they were selling it for 790 or so.

i have always prefered passive electronics for a groovy flat r'n'r sound.

Yep, I have two basses with active, and I find myself always fiddling with the tone knobs trying to get a better sound. Also passive pickups have a better low end when you play really high notes.

my almighty lefty purple Squier Strat. i had an Ibanez humbucker from my friend's guitar put in the neck.

EDIT: photobucket fucking hates me. it always makes the pics that i like too small, NEVER the ones that i don't.

Hey, if anyone wants guitar stickers made, I can probably include them in the next mix swap and the host can send them off. I can do them for free because my college program has all the material. Just send over the picture and let me know where you want it.

I plan to do my entire guitar soon!

'92/'93 Fender Telecaster Standard. Just got it second hand for a really good price.


My other guitar is a Strat rip off, that is the exact same as a strat but it doesn't sound as good. I've bought some nice Fender pickups off Ebay and am hoping to fit them on. Then I'm buying Fender everything and making it a Strat. By the end of the year, I am hoping to own a Fender Mustang and a Jazzmaster by the end of the year.

Shitty Practise Amp
Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi
Digitech Rp-80
Shitty Distortion fuzz box (That sounds pretty darn good)
Jim Dunlop Capo
Ashton Capo
And two slides of forgettable brands

put the knobs and the switch in some dark cold tea and leave them there to pick up the vintage color...
