    I know we've got some die hard guitarist on this forum but what I'm wondering is, what kind of guitar does everyone play? Let me kick this topic off by saying that I am the proud owner of a Krammer EVH replica. Granted it is not the real deal it still rocks. Basically it is a 1982 Krammer Striker equiped with EVH Peavy Pick-ups, EVH style Floyd Rose Trem-system, and the classic Frankinstien paint job which I had done at a local airbrush joint. My next addition to my guitar will be the new EVH D-Tuna as soon as it arrives in my mail. I also own a B.C. Rick Warlock but the heck with that, this is a VH forum! One last note, has anyone seen the new striped version of the EVH Wolfgang for sale?

    A custom Robin joby

    It has a floyd

    A Trembucker in the tail and a Jeff Beck in the neck.
    I've got the pickups split on a fiveway switch so it's double tail, single tail, both, single neck, and double neck.

    I've a coil tap on the volume pot, hard bypass switch,and no tone control.

    I have some shitty strat style guitar that I bought used. I long since sanded off the no name type label on the headstock. I've been thinking of striping it, but I haven't yet.

    I used to have a Kramer 600ST, which cost me $750 probably around 15 years ago. Which is pretty funny since I can barely play two chords now, much less then. I had that bad boy sanded down so many times with sandpaper that it had the coolest finish left on it. Then one day I got pissed off and slammed it down and broke the neck in two. I never replaced it, but later got rid of the body of it, which I regret to this day, since it looked so cool.

    Not even copying EVH, but I had to put a quarter under the tremolo of it because it wouldn't stay in tune otherwise with the floating tremolo it had on it.

    Raven, you should check out that Link. It's a section devoted to some of the guitars that some of our members have. Some sweet axes in there. You can send in your pics if you want to be included in there too.

    Strat through Marshall, baby! One of the prettiest sounds ever! Only effect is heavy reverb and Marshall stock pedal...I also play through an old Fender Bassman from the 15th century...sounds real nice!

    I've got a '92 Les Paul Standard, a Les Paul Studio, year unknown, An Ibanez RG560 with Floyd Rose, A cheap Mexican Strat, a beat up Fender 6-string acoustic and a Takamine 12-string. Hey Homeunit, my writing/recording partner has a couple of nice Robins too. He had an endorsement back in the early '90's. His name is Jon Huffman and he played with a band called Sweet FA.

    Glenn,

    I just have have a black Wolfie Standard and an old Charvel/Jackson "super strat" thing that just sits in the case. I bought it for $250 used about 5 years ago. Tried to put a new tremelo on it, fucked it up,.....bought a Wolfie.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Well, I play guitar, but I'm no guitar player. Does that make sense? I stink big time. I know most people say that, but I mean it. Lately I've been checking out some KISS tabs on the net because they're really simple for a guy of my limited ability.

    And the guitar breaking story is all true, sadly.
