    1. My first set of Elixir brand guitar strings for my electric. I'd used the acoustic ones before, but now I'm sold on the electric ones, too.

    2. Some fancy mods for my main guitar: A 'super switch' and some rewiring and new pots.

    3. A p.c. dedicated for music recording only. It's not even online. I bought it used from a local pc tech guy. I basically gave him all of my digital recording stuff and asked him to build a pc around it. (Only $300. Good deal!)

    I feel better that I'm not the only one to have discovered the joys of the Elixir electric strings this year. Several of my peers have been telling me to switch to them for over a year. I love 'em!

    Yes. I was messin' around with the Plexi patch Friday night. It's way tight, man.

    I had a hard time spending close to $500 on a guitar processor - why not get a nicer tube condenser mic for that price? - but now that I did, I'll never need another guitar processor. Ever.

    In '08 I went nuts and bought quite a bit of gear. Three favorites.....Hmmmm a bit tough, but....
    My Gibson SG [/COLOR](Once the neck stabilized). My main guitar now.

    Vox AD50VT amp. It goes to gigs with me now, and I actually get quite a few compliments on the tone and questions about the wattage. The sucker can crank!

    My new Yamaha P-85 piano. Great sounding, very realistic key feel. Also has strings, electric pianos,and organ settings and you can run the sounds in dual mode if you want.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    Got a zvex "fuzz factory" which is very cool!

    A fender hot rod 2/12 deville - very loud amp!

    Gibson gave my band a very nice black USA ES-335 on "permanent loan", which means i didnt buy it but get to use it to record and play on tour.

    Yikes! That's nice.
    I never tried for an endorsement from Gibson because I don't use their stuff, but a friend of mine did. Gibson told him he would be on their endorsers list (which is, like, ten miles long) and--get this--he could buy any Gibson product for 10% off the list price!!! What a deal!

    This sounds stupid but I bought my son a guitar pick of his choice. I wasn't anything special but he is playing the guitar now.

    I play a Hamer but the model i play they haven't made in 25 years so i'll play a Gibson - even a free one!!
    We met our guy from Gibson when we played somewhere in Texas last summer and he was very cool.
    Told him we wanted to put a bigsby on the 335 and he's like go for it.
    We have endorsements with guitar pick and string company's too.
    I get my own guitar picks with my bands logo on them for so cheap it's sick!
    I give em away on tour more than i use em.
