the-best-of-the-blues-deactivat asked: What would be your dream setup?... Guitar, amp, pedals etc... You can have only one guitar and one amp... It doesn't have to be out of the stuff you own :).
Such a tough one to answer! :D
If I had to keep 1 guitar and 1 amp out of my current collection, I would definitely keep my Blackstar HT1-RH. It’s small, and yet sounds really warm and sweet. On the guitar side it’s tougher…but…um…perhaps my black Les Paul Special Double Cut? It’s reasonably light, aesthetically beautiful and well crafted, and it sounds good playing almost any type of music! However, if you ask me again in 5 minutes and that choice will probably have changed… ;D
If I could choose “any” guitar and amp from history I am thinking I would look for a 1965 (or ‘64) Stratocaster (I love the Fender “transition” logo!) as long as it was under 7 lbs. Ideally the colour would be Dakota Red…or Shoreline Gold…or Lake Placid Blue…or Sherwood Green…or hell, even a plain old sunburst would do! :D Amp-wise, it would have to be a Fender “Blackface” of some kind…a Princeton Reverb would do the trick nicely!
Thanks for a fun question! :)
PS: Here’s a ‘64 Strat I shot at the Guitar Center store in Manhattan last month. This would do very nicely (assuming I could come up with the 30 grand to buy it that is!) :D
