WoW!  Just came back to this thread and, after two years, my rig has changed a lot.  I got rid of the Marshall, it was too 80\'s sounding and couldn\'t get real versatile with it.  Besides all that, it was just too much to lug around, yeah, I\'m lazy, I know.  I replaced it with a VOX VT50 2x12, it\'s not bad, but I\'m still looking around for a better fit.

I replaced most of my floor pedals with a VOX Tonelab that I\'m liking a lot, I still have the Talk Box and the Boosta Grande in line though.  Also got rid of the Black Jackson (I wish I hadn\'t though) and picked up a Jackson PS4 and replaced all my cables with Monster Cables..

Then holy shit, send me the Loomis and the Mesa cab.  Dang.  

Still using the Madison Divinity II head and various shit cabs I\'d rather not even mention.  Madison went under last year, for all intents and purposes, and there went our endorsement, along with access to replacement parts, so I\'m probably going to find a replacement head I can beat up at shows and not worry about, and just use the Madison in the studio.  I sold my rack in the interest of simplifying and just run a BBE sonic stomp and Boss GE-7 eq with Monster cables through the effects loop of the Divinity.

My trusty steed is an Ibanez S5470 prestige, 24 fret, satin oil mahogany body with a five piece maple/walnut wizrd prestige neck.  I tore out the bullshit stock pickups and replaced them with a Dimarzio Crunch Lab bridge and Liquifire neck pickup.  I did have the Dimarzio Yngwie single coil in the middle but it went bye bye recently because too much magnet pull was killing sustain.  Strings are D\'addario 11-49 with a wound 3rd, and Dunlop pitch black jazz 3s in 1.14mm.  I like to just plug and play without too much hassle.  The combo of an all tube head and passive pickups allows a lot more dynamics by using the volume knob to clean up the sound, I think.

I was looking at this thread, then turned around in my man cave/studio and realized most of my shit is pretty mediocre. I think I invested more in variety rather than quality.

Guitar:



Its actually an older model of this and has EMG HZ pickups and other shitty electronics, but I love the way it plays.



I know, a Fender Squier??? Only neck through, Floyd Rose, double humbucking Squire I have ever seen is this model. And I got it for $200 bucks when Mars Music closed. I put in an EMG 81 and 85 and it both sounds and plays very nice. I have literally run this guitar over with my truck. I had to resolder a knob but otherwise it works great.  

I also have a 22 year old Squire II. This was my first guitar. I still play it as it is the only one I have with a single coil in the bridge, and I have gotten to like that sounds. An American Strat will be in my future if I get up with a gigging band again.

Bass:

Ibanez EX series. This thing is 20 years old and beaten and was inexpensive to begin with. But as long as I don\'t fuck with the knobs it sounds great. New bass is also on my future list.

Amps:

Marshal VS 100 head and the 4x 12 cabinet that goes with the MG series head. I have never really liked this amp\'s sound myself, though Chuck Shuldiner used it.

An Ampeg guitar 1x12. This is actually a nice little amp. I have had it probably 20 years and sounds great, especially the clean channel.

Peavy TKO 115 bass combo.

Drums:

Roland TD-3 kit. Simple and effective for use in a home where volume is a problem. One day I really want a real kit though, especially for recording.

Recording:

-Presonus Fire Pod
-Presonus Eureka channel strip
- Furman power conditioner
- Behringer Truth studio monitors (I need a sub badly)
- Mics = Rode NT1000, EV 664 (this is vintage), Carvin bass drum mic, 2 behringer pencil condensers (cannot recall model and they are put away)
- Line 6 Pod
- Sonar 4 Producer Edition
- Dell Laptop
- Bunches of cables and shit.
A deuce for the corner of your warehouse....

I\'ll send you the Loomis. I just put it up for sale. heh  I\'m keeping the Agile 7 that I have with the tremelo.  The Loomis is very nice, just don\'t need two 7s and I\'d rather have a quality 6 string shredder. My nicest 6 string is an Agile LP style.  Love it, just want something a bit more pointy for the metals.

I\'ll start posting a few things to Craigslist in a few days.  Figured I\'d post here first.

I wish I could afford that Loomis, man. It\'d damn sure be mine if I could. He\'s a monster guitarist, and that\'s probably the best guitar Schecter has ever or will ever make.  When I got my Prestige a while back, I had narrowed it down to the Ibanez, that Loomis, and a JP6 Petrucci model from Ernie Ball.  I only chose the Ibanez in the lonf run because it was on sale since the finish was discontinued.  I couldn\'t tell that was an Agile from the pic, for some reason it reminded me of a Carvin.  How do you like that guitar?  I\'ve never played one, but I have researched them, and they seem to be hrd to beat for the money.  I also saw they had an 8 string model years ago, before they really got popular here recently.  I\'m a total gear whore, even to the point where I have to consciously avoid Guitar Center and have my girlfriend throw out the Sweetwater catalogs when they come.

The Agile is incredible for the money. Here\'s the one I have:

http://www.rondomusic.com/interceptorprobduncan727triredq.html

I was able to grab one before they raised the price from 750 to 800.  Still, at $800, it\'s amazing if you like those features.  Not happy with what you get? Send it back for a full refund. You can also find them used from time to time in the classifieds on sevenstring.org.

Some say they don\'t notice much of a difference when it comes to the extended scale lengths. I certainly do, but I think I have small hands. The Loomis is 26.5 and the Agile is 27. The .5 to me is a noticeable difference and I prefer the scale on the Loomis over the Agile.  However, it\'s not a major issue and probably even less of one for an experienced player.

The JP6 or JPX6 is high on my list for a 6 string. That\'s why I\'m thinking of getting rid of the Loomis. I want the JP or I may go even deeper in dept for a Suhr custom.  Ouch.

I have a Jackson DXMGT with those same HZ pickups.  I love the neck on it but don\'t play it much because of the way it sounds.  I keep telling myself that I\'ll get around to replacing the pickups and maybe upgrading the nut and tuners... but I probably never will.

Yeah man, the JPs are such ridiculously nice guitars.  The newer version has been somewhat redesigned, with a slightly larger body.  It\'s still basswood, so it should be pretty mid range heavy.  Our other guitarist uses EMGs, and, I won\'t lie, I used to swear by them, but, recently, I wanted some passives to be able to use the volu,e knob for cleaning up the gain a bit on parts, and, the Crunch Lab and Liquifire that I put in the Ibanez are perfect.  They aren\'t quite as high output as the active ones, of course, but they are monsters when it comes to cutting through the mix.  I thinka lot of metal bands overlook how important clarity is, versus trying to be as heavy and downtuned as possible.  Our bassist just got a Music Man Bongo fretless, so, we try to let the bass do its job by keeping the guitars mid heavy, but, yeah, dude, go with the JP.
