Greetings all
« on: May 17, 2015, 09:12:46 PM »
Hi everyone, I'm Bill and I'm a gear junkie..  There, I said it.   I have WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY too much stuff, and I do not have any remorse for buying any of it.  I try to use what I can, when I can..  but with my given work schedule, I don't play nearly as much as I should.  I'm a fan of the blues, and have many influences ranging from the iconic BB King to Eric Clapton, Albert King, Freddie King, Elmore James, Johnny Shines, and more..  I was involved in a motorcycle accident early on, and didn't have full use of my hand for almost 16 years, but after telling my orthopedic doc, he was wrong, and plenty of physical therapy, I can again play.  I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas, and information to further the guitar community as best I can..

Hi Bill, and welcome to GG.  :tup:

We love gear junkies here, I would be one myself given the chance.  Only have a couple of guitars atm, but hope to increase that when circumstances permit.

Look forward to chatting in the forums. Any problems (sitewise) just shout.

Welcome Bill.

Nice to have someone else on board who has a similar affliction to mine (not the hand, well done for getting that back).

This month I've bought a new bass and I am waiting for a Behringer BX4210A to arrive from DV247 - there is a clear out going on this old model - being discontinued or a new version coming out I guess - and Thomann had sold out before I got the cash together. I've read reviews which say that the drivers are a bit on the fragile side, but as it only cost £150 and decent replacement drivers are only £50 each if the worst comes to the worst I can live with that.

Are you going to let us see a list/pictures of your lifetime's collection?

Welcome to GG, Amptech... :)

Well, it's not going to be easy, I think there are 43 guitars, and 65 Amps..  PA gear, effects, etc are another story..  For starters, there are 13 Marshall amps, several Fender Bassman amps, 3 Ampeg B-15's, 3 Ampeg B12XT's, 2 or 3  Ampeg SVT's. Ampeg Reverb o Rocket II, 2 Ampeg Gemini Gemini II's, 3 Fender Super Reverbs, some oddball amps, Silvertone, Gretch, Gibson, etc..  Oh yeah, and Sunn 1200S, 2000S, 3 Sentura II's, a 100S, Sonic I-40, and a Fender Dual Showman..  This is just what I can think of off the top of my head..  Guitar wise, I have 8 Gibson SG's, from 1965 to 1990, 3 Les Pauls, I think 18 Stratocasters, from 1959, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1966, and some newer ones 1990's and some American Standards, Anniversary model, etc.. Acoustics 1940 Martin 000-15, 1997 Gibson CL-40 Artist, Yamaha 12 String, Takamine FS-400 , Takamine FS360 Sho-Bud Pro III, and Fessenden SD-10..Probably some more if I keep looking..

Do you have a favourite guitar and amp?

My 63 black stratocaster and my 67 Marshall 50w trem head is probably is my favourite combo..  I also have 5 Hammond B3 series organs and 18 Leslie's..  My basement is pretty average, but it is packed..  It looks like Woodstock exploded, and landed in my basement..

Oh my goodness!  :o

I'm telling my wife that she has nothing to worry about with my tiny collection of 14 guitars ;)
