All right everyone, there's a bunch of newbies around here..

Post by Norrin Radd » Tue May 11, 2010 7:02 pm

....and I don't know all the essentials. I like to know 'em. I'm very happy the Orange community is growing! I love my RV50 and always will. :wink: In any event, and because our tastes change form time to time, I'd like to start this thread where you all will post the essentials:

1. Your favorite amp (or 2, but NO MORE)

2. Your favorite guitar (or 2, but NO MORE)

and, last, and most importantly:

3. Your favorite Beer.

NOW, because I'm finicky and a pic whore, I expect everyone to post pics for all of the above. It makes it a lot easier for me to just download pics of your favorite brew and bring them into the liquor store when I go shopping to drink what you all like. After trying a couple, I can never remember the names - but the pics are very helpful to the store staff. :wink:

Oh yeah - if you want to tell a blurb about yourself - have at it. And CERTAINLY post a link to your band's Youtube channel or other link to your music vids/MP3s if you've got one. I'll start:

1. Amp - RV50 & Dr. Z Stingray:

(The PRS is no longer with me)

Image

2. Guitar - Strat - '69 Relic:

3. Beer:

1. A nice Les Paul. My Epiphone with upgraded caps fits the bill for now. My dream Les Paul would probably be a high end Tokai or Gibson Joe Bonamassa Goldtop model. I also dig my Classic Vibe Tele a lot.

2. Currently - my Tweed Deluxe 5E3 that some of you probably saw the build thread for. I really want a RV50 though. I also want to build a Silver Jubilee and Dumble clone eventually.

3. I'm only 18, so no beer here, but I'll definitely take recommendations for when I turn 21! :lol:

hey guys, i'm certainly new here. I'm much more active over at HC but that place is a disaster as of late so I started lurking around here. I play in a band http://www.myspace.com/modgun, feel free to check it out if you want (although those tracks are a bit dated)

My favorite amp would be my RV100 and my newly acquired Avatar 412
Image
I've also got a SF Bassman 50 w/ matching 2x15" thats pretty sweet. I've always been a fan (and player) of Fender amps.

As far as guitars go, my #1 is an '86 MIJ Standard Strat
Image
I have a stupid amount of strats besides that one so picking an absolute 2nd fav is tricky, but I've been getting a lot of miles out of a partscaster I threw together from a HW1 body/ electronics and an old MIJ Rosewood neck. Unfortunately I don't have pics of that one...

And I'm always down for a cold Sam

Way cool band man. By far my favorite of any forum member I've heard so far. You guys ever come out to the Chicago area and play?
