My instruments (Pic heavy)




I've begun to compile a list of my musical instruments, along with their specs, images and other info for easy personal reference... I figured I'd share them here too, as there might be others interested in music-making hardware too! Thus far I've only dealt with electric stringed instruments, but I'll get the others in time.

Fretless Frankenbass
This was cobbled together from my first bass, a Profile Precision Bass copy (w/ maple neck), with a fretless Yamaha neck from a friend (had to be shaved to fit in the neck pocket), a cheap pickup from eBay to replace the ailing original, and new pots. Sounds good and plays surprisingly well.

Awesome guy! Your first guitar reminds me of one of mine. I have a solid body mahagony two piece Peavy. It's a real nice piece cost me 350 second hand.
busman on Wed Aug 01, 2012 5:47 pm
Cool. It's not a Patriot or T-15, is it?
Ankhanu on Wed Aug 01, 2012 10:23 pm
You have some nice-looking guitars in your collection. I miss the days when I played. Perhaps this post will encourage me to get back to it.
pauline123 on Thu Aug 02, 2012 5:26 pm
Couldn't tell you as a drummer it's not the biggest deal what it is lol. It sounds very nice and I could put a pick of it up sometime maybe you could tell me what it is.
busman on Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:42 am
Yeah, that's cool... I'm just curious, it's not important Smile
If you do, the model name will be on the headstock.

We should start a 70s techno band
Josso on Fri Aug 10, 2012 3:20 am
Goddamn that looks like some fun gear!
Been considering a Micro-Korg for a while - pretty useable sounds and easy to use without too many submenus. Just haven't bitten the bullet.... Now I'm considering a Casio WX-P1 instead. Was also considering a Juno-Stage that's on clearance at the local shop, but it's more than I want to pay for something without a good keybed.

That Korg-700 has my curiosity!

In the spring I sold my old Schecter Hellcat VI (above next to the Schecter Ultra VI) in order to buy an updated version of the same bass. It took about 3-4mo. to arrive, but I've been happy with the purchase. The changes they made were changes I was intending to make to the old one anyway, so buying new saved me some time/effort, with about the same overall cost (with having to buy new pickups, switching, and a custom made pickguard.
