Guess I will show my purchases from last year...  Just snagged these pictures off the web but they are all the correct models, etc.

Bugera 333XL



ESP MH-1000



&

My favorite toy right now!

Godin A8 Mandolin



The A8 i have is the Natural Semi-Gloss finish shown above.  Because I've begun writing new Mandolin material in various untraditional tunings now (atleast in the last month) I plan to eventually get the CognacBurst High-Gloss as a secondary.  This Electric/Acoustic Mandolin could be louder unplugged (lack of soundholes) but the electronics are what puts this little guy at the top of it's class as far as pluggin it in and at a very good price.

The tunings for my very recent Mandolin material (not including my goof videos on facebook) are considerably lower than that of the standard Mandolin tuning.  This might not work as well for cutting through with a full live band but for solo material it sounds quite enjoyable.   grin  Perhaps you might see some of my real material live within the next year.  I'd says it's an Experimental/Folk sound.

Don't think I could be happier with any other Mandolin.  Unless maybe a custom build but that doesn't balance well with my wallet.

Haha, never played any drunken Trollfest covers on it yet.  Couldn't imagine doing a Trollfest cover sober, just wouldn't seem right!  This is now on my to do list.

But seriously, those guits look sweet. What kind of EMG's did you get for your ESP?

Yeah apparently an 85 in the bridge is supertits in a mahogany body like the MH-1000.

If you're using an amp with a somewhat loose and flubby low end however (duel/triple recs I'm looking in your direction) without some type of tube screamer in front, an 85 in the bridge is only going to exacerbate this cause it's ridicubassy.

Yeah it is a bassy pickup I guess but I love thick low end distortion. However, the bassy sound is amazing with a clean tone, something an 81 in the bridge is terrible at doing.

Why are you fantasizing about me loving cock? Are you harboring some sort of latent homosexuality and this is your one outlet to express this deep seeded homosexuality? Just come out of the closet already. It'll solve the cognitive dissonance problem you are having.

Add this to my wanted list...

Seagull's Artist "Peppino" Cutaway

I'd like Ben's thoughts on this, though I doubt he's ever played one.

I've played a few of the lower end seagulls and they are decent for the price.

I grew up playing on my dad's old Seagull.  I'd like to get a new high end one.  I'll have to try out what Bsharp and Long & Mcquade got in right now.  I feel this guitar will suit my needs as the style of this Artist has got some pretty higher standard requirments

Man don't try it at Long and McQuade. They don't even set up their guitars for sale properly before putting them on the wall anymore. I went in and tried a Petrucci signature Music Man and it felt like complete garbage. Normally that guitar is amazing as I've tried it elsewhere but it just felt like pure shit for fags.

Point taken, there are very few reasons I set foot in L&M.  I will happily purchase from B-Sharp as I always have and no doubt I'd be checking there to try em out first as well.

Up until about 2-3 years ago L&M were good. They just don't seem to give a shit now and are more concerned with pushing large amounts of cheap gear out the door rather than actually having decent displays of their quality gear. This just goes for the guitar section though. I have no idea what their percussion section is like.

Sounds like Mother's here in Stoon.

Yeah it is a bassy pickup I guess but I love thick low end distortion. However, the bassy sound is amazing with a clean tone, something an 81 in the bridge is terrible at doing.

Totally agree. I always flip over to the neck for cleans and smoother, jazzy sounding solos (got a 60 there).


That Seagull looks great! I can only imagine how well it plays and sounds. My first guitar was a Seagull S6 and, despite its flaws, I still love playing it to this day.

It's been awhile since I was last there, but at that time they had so much shit jam packed into that place that you could barely walk around without knocking things over. And they're pretty gestapo about trying out gear at a decent volume (but that's not really their fault since the place is almost entirely open) and IIRC you can only rent used stuff.

L&M here is very spacious, well designed and has a sealed off rooms for amps, acoustics, percussion, pianos/strings, brass, and recording shite. You can also rent anything, even brand new stuff. Plus there are some really cool peeps working there.

Yeah the saskatoon L&M seems like a stand up place from whenever I've been there. Here in Regina, not so much.

Yessir it's pretty good stuff.  I'm happy to have something to play on that isn't solid state.  The idea of when you turn it louder, everything turns louder.  I still don't know that it would be 100% the amp I'm looking for when I finally decide to get it together and purchase one, but it's still deadly beans.  Quality tone and when you adjust your mid/low/highs they actually make noticeable and useful differences.  I could see why you use a decimator on it as well, there's a little noise, but it's not really problematic on the crunch channel which I will be using mostly.

I will be using this to record if you don't mind it.

well, really there's no arranging to do.  the recording is happening already, i'll be doing my stuff this weekend/next week some time.  so all you have to do is sit back and let me lug the gear around.
