    How about this one :
    My pride, an original 1980 Fender prototype of a Hendrix Stratocaster ( only 25 ever built ! ) unfortunately slightly modified by a previous owner.

    peace
    Thanks man...i am not really a bass player so don't expect any "high end" stuff...

    So add a Squier Classic Vibe Jazz bass (great instrument for the price if you ask me), an old modified Ibanez GSR200 and my wife's short scale Harley Benton bass...

    PS: i've just realized that most of the wah and guitars photos i've posted in my site are a kinda of old...most of them have been heavily modified (neck profiles, fretboard radius, fret size for the guitars, pots, switches and even the enclosures for the wahs...hell, now i am thinking, even my plexi's photos are not updated..lol)

    Who cares if it's high end stuff? As long as it plays and sounds well, I really don't care if it's high end. I bought a couple of years ago an old Squier Precision Bass (from about '83/'84) for 80 euros (!) and it's just an amazing bass, plays and sounds wonderfull (nothing modified)! I'll post some pics soon

    this is accordingly restrung for lefty as that is my handedness.

    this here is a pretty versatile guitar. it's an Electra Phoenix x190.

    all three knobs pull out for many tonal options. 3 way pickup selector (bridge pickup/both pickups/neck pickup)

    volume knob - pulls out for Coil Tap
    neck tone knob - pulls out to turn on middle pick up which is otherwise off
    bridge tone knob - pulls out for "phaser" effect

    Re: Show us your instrument!

    How strange to assume we have an instrument? lol.. Must be something about Jimi fans i guess! Gotta be a part of the music.

    My U.S.A Fender Strat... A Real 68` VOX Crybaby! And Various Fulltone Pedals... Dont have them anymore, went over to Analogman Pedals then got skint and sold them too :-( Will never lose my beloved Strat though... its a part of me.

    Re: Show us your instrument!

    (I'll have pics of all this stuff sometime tomorrow!)

    My Set Up:

    Guitar: Squier '51 ($99 guitar but the neck pickup has great sound to me ears)

    Amp: Fender Blues Jr. (the standard one, not the yellow tolex one)

    Effects:
    Dunlop Octavio
    Vox V847 Wah (Modded heavily by MaxxPlay)
    MXR BC108 Classic Fuzz
    Fulltone OCD (V4)
    KR Megavibe
    MXR Carbon Copy Delay

    I also have a Dunlop Hendrix Silicon Fuzz Face, that I bought off cheap on ebay, but the 9v battery clip is broken so I need to fix that before I can test the pedal!

    I got most of the effects on ebay for cheap (Octavio, Wah before mods, both Fuzz, Carbon Copy).

    My main hope is to replace my Squier '51 with a true strat...I love the neck pickup on the Squier, but the bridge pickup is so weak, and the guitar just doesn't have much tonal range overall. It's just these things cost money and I don't have much of that...

    Re: Show us your instrument!

    Here's a video of me playing my "main squeeze". It's a 1992 Fender Standard Stratocaster, with the pickups from a 1986 MIJ Fender Contemporary Stratocaster. The neck is a 22-fret Warmoth. Despite it's appearance, it's actually a righthand neck, with reverse headstock. The Gibson Flying V and Ibanez 7-string seen to the left, are my 2 other main "live" guitars.

    Excellent thread CanaQ-- well I can't play anything-- but Ive read enough about Mike Jeffery that if we put together a band here (The Crosstown Torrents Band) I could manage us. So who's all in favor of me (MJ wanna be) being the Manager? Ive already got a lot of gigs set up for us- we will criss cross the world giving 3 concerts a day. For example we will give our first concert performance in LA then fly to Europe for the second concert of the day and then fly back to LA for the third concert of the day. Dont worry bout the money- Ill handle all of that.
