Matt: you need to upload them to an account somewhere on the web, then use the "IMG" tags to have them appear in your posts here. If you have a facebook or myspace account, you can use the web addresses of the pictures as they appear there. If not, a good free picture hosting site is imageshack.us or photobucket.com

It was ages ago I visited to this forum, but i have kept on playing guitar and upgraded my equipment too of course. What i own now I'm actually really satisfied with.

Electrical Guitar:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser. Very suitable for the hard rock/blues I like with a thick neck whick makes the bending easy and gives great tone. A lot of people complain about active EMG pickups not having enough "life" in them, but I don't think I would benefit from a pickup change.

Amp:
Laney VC15-110 Old English White. A special edition Laney tube amp in a very nice colour. Unfortunately it's in service now.

In Between:
Blackstar HT-dual. Very versatile three-channel distorsion pedal with a couple of tubes in it. Come in handy when I'm playing a gig and I don't know what amp I have to use. It always sounds good. I got this pedal for half price because the box was sundamaged!

Boss DD-7 Digital Delay. The only effect I need.

What I really, really should have bought a long time ago is a tuner in pedal form. Shame on me.

Oh, and almost forgot my most priced posession:

Acoustic guitar:

Furch D23-CR. The sound is just wonderful and it has a very nice feel when playing it. The sound is very close to a David Gilmour acoustic sound (think "Division Bell"). I much prefer it over the Martin and Gibsons that I've tried. I recommend you try this brand if you see one. I got a microphone installed in when i bought it but the music shop really did a crap job with it, because I get a lot hum (grounding problem) and very low volume.

While I have several of those as well, I'm a recent convert to clip-on tuners, specifically, the Snark. This sells for like $12 US in the States, and since it works on vibrations, your guitar doesn't to be plugged in at all, or if it is, you can have the volume down and still tune.

Hm, I've used one of those but never thought of buying one myself. They sure are a lot cheaper than the Boss TU-3 for example. Next time I'm in a music shop I'll buy one of them. They should be very handy in a live situation.

Good luck! I now swear by them, use them in my rock band and church gigs.

I like my clip on tuner becouse I can use it on all of my guitars.. The LP, the Reso, the accustic.... eaven my lap steel, and my kids junkyard accustic, and small size strat....When im working on setup, and repair I dont have to worry about plugging in the electrics.... I just go.. I can see the pedal tuner would be handy in a live electric show though.... But im a way off from that world...

One of the guitarshops had a up to 80% sale, so I went to it today too look for a new soundcard and came home with this instead:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/79507915@N ... /lightbox/

It's an Epiphone Broadway. Had never heard of the guitar before I saw it but it played very well and has a nice acoustic tone. I've always wanted a Gretsch White Falcon, and this may not be it, but it is a archtop which I didn't own until now. Only missing the Bigsby really.

I've no idea how it sounds plugged in, because I couldn't try it in the shop (they had no amp set up, yes, stupid in my opinion), and my guitar amp is still in service has it has been the last month. I only had to pay 2499 SEK (=357 USD) for it.

The setup is ok. The action could be a bit lower, but the intonation is spot on which had never happened when I've bought a new guitar before. I'm missing a case though and the guitar is huge, so it won't fit in another case I have. Think I'm going to order one online along with a guitar stand and a good strap. They only had nylon or leather straps with awful colours.

So, now I just to have to start a jazz career. To be honest, I'm hoping it's going too sound good with a slightly overdriven tube amp for playing chords and melody lines.

Ok, the Broadway was fine on the clean settings, but putting the amp into a mild overdrive gave me a really good, Chuch Berry-rock'n'roll sound. I don't know why it's only recommended for jazz, it works great for blues and rock'n'roll too.
