What are you playing on these days?

My arsenal currently:

Guitars:
Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus (AA top, very pretty) in Lightburst finish. Modified: removed stock BurstBucker Pros replaced with Classic 57 Zebras in both neck and bridge, tapped for single coils and phase.
Rickenbacker 360-12 Fireglo finish
Epiphone Les Paul in honeyburst finish, nice flametop. When I met Les himself he confessed to preferring some Epiphones to Gibsons when I showed him some catalogs of both.
Epiphone Sheraton II (Natural finish)
Fender Squire Stratocaster (another well spent $200, when Squire's were decent, same color as my J Bass)
Martin D-1 acoustic
Martin SPD-16R acoustic
Washburn W 240 12 string acoustic (a bargain at $120)


Amps:
Marshall Class 5 combo
Fender Deluxe Reverb
Fender Sidekick 15 open back combo
Fender Sidekick 15R closed back, ported combo
Fender Princeton 112 combo
Electar (Epiphone) Tube 30 combo

FX:
MXR Distortion + (Original issue)
Boss Acoustic Simulator
Ibanez Multi Effects rack unit (analog compressor, phaser, overdrive, Stereo Chorus/Flanger and loop)
Cry Baby Wah (Classic)
DigiTech RP7 digital effects processor
DOD Wah/Volume

That reminds me of my first gig ever, it was at a graduation party in 1986. I was a little nervous because I never played in front of a large crowd before. We set everything up on stage and did a sound check. we were going to party for an hour or so with everyone and as it got dark we were going to start playing. This drunk guy walked up without anyone seeing and he grabbed my guitar and started playing it. I heard it so I went to see who was on my guitar and as I walked up he walked until the chord pulled my whole amp over. It messed up my amp head and it wouldnt work. We had 20 minutes until we were going to start playing. The only thing we could do is use the practice amp I had and mic it through the PA. It was a junky peavey amp with 1-8" speaker in it and it didn't have any distortion in it at all.

I had to play Iron maiden, sabbath, dio and motley crew playing with a clean tone. It sounded like pure shit but I finished the gig. People were so drunk that they thought it sounded killer. It was my worse gig ever but at least it was out of the way and it only got better after that.

Nice Les Paul Florentine! Very rare! I have never seen one in person but imagine it's got the best of the both worlds.
I, myself, am deeply jealous.

Thanks Cygnus.  It is a nice balance between an ES Gibson and a Les Paul.  Unfortunately itís going on eBay soon along with the tri-gold strat.  fists crying.gif  I have some home fixes that need to be done before the snow flies.  Iím going to give the original owner a chance to buy it back though.    trink39.gif

You'll have to excuse my sister, she's developed a problem with gravity lately (((grin)))

I must concur with her, ALL of these photos are a delight to a guitarist's eyes.
Being a Gibson Gal myself, (with an appreciation for ANY good instrument) that LP is SWEET!

Sister-Mine, should I post some of the Dad & his Maplecaster?
