(hope you don't mind me hijacking your post Zkash, But I figure since I can modify other peoples posts in here but not my own It makes more sense to use someone elses post for the main feature)

Gear:

Guitars:
             
Rockwood strat copy (Bridge now a blade humbucker)                Brian may signature red special, mahogany body, trisonic pickups
1987 American strat fitted with a Kahler tremolo.                       RPG, loaded with p90s basswood body and set neck

           
Lindo les paul with a spruce body                                                Atrius "Queensryche" guitar with licenced floyd
Columbus les paul with a plywood body and fake humbuckers           rose and locking nut (and, i suspect, an mdf body)
(bridge now upgraded to a "boston" alnico 5 humbucker)                 Wesley paddle style guitar made from acrylic


       
Both are "Axe" ::) guitars, plywood body,                                  Partsocaster from a yamaha erg121 and rockwood neck,
                                                                                        also converted to a hardtail.
bottom one I have stripped the paint off of the fretboard            bottom is a gear4music SG style guitar, basswood body.
                                                                                        (Now fitted with a set of Ibanez AH (1&2) pickups)


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v236/tourniquet42/guitars7.jpg
top is a gear4music 12 string acoustic. spruce top, sapele sides, Very good value for money if you're after a budget 12 string. (has now been fitted with a homemade Piezoelectric pickup)
Bottom is a 70's "audition" semi acoustic, very unusual pickups, bigsby style trem, nasty bridge I intend to replace with a TOM eventually, Individual switching for the pickups (oddly).


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v236/tourniquet42/guitars8.jpg
Top is my scratchbuild project, now with truss rod (which i stupidly started to peel the shrink wrap off of... no biggie, I can rebind it), pickups donated from a 2003 epiphone (also got an ibanez donor set I can try if I don't like these), and aluminium fret markers.
Bottom is a marlin neck with locking nut, got it for the partsocaster but the neck socket wasn't suitable.... I'll find a use for it later.

Abscent are My Aria PE-Elite (visible in my old sig further down) is back but I need to get round to photographing it.
a gear4music ovation style 6 string


Amplifiers:
Blackstar HT-5 stack          Roland Cube 30X                 Vox Amplug & mini cabinet
 

Page G15 (Almost completely unheard of amp, looks like an old practice amp, I'll photograph it and the other amps properly at a later date)



Effects:
Digitech RP250 multifx (these days stripped back to just use single effects)
Boss TU-2 tuner

Misc:
Shure C606 Microphone
Yoga DM-2100 Microphone
Superscope condenser Microphone

Wow holy crap you have a lot of beautiful guitars.  I think I like the looks of the rockwood strat copy.  You obviously are a connoisseur of guitars.  Very clever on the storing method of your "babys".

Lindo top before

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v236/tourniquet42/Lindo.jpg
Lindo after

Been doing a little work on the Lindo les paul.
Stripped the front finish off and used some Rustins "red mahongany" wood dye on it. The wood itself is rather ho-hum, all the grain and pattern you see is an effect if the method used to apply the dye.
Rustins clear varnish was used to finish.... one thick coat brushed on... very uneven and wavy. Did intend to go through multiple coats with sanding and polishing but I decided I liked the rough and ready look.
Pickups have been replaced with a set from an Epiphone donor (better than stock but i might find something with a bit more grunt later)

Wow, nice work. Looks very sweet!
Do you plan to put back on the pickguard?
What I think looks a bit weird, is, that now there are chrome pickups while the rest of the hardware is gold.

My gear is here

Cheers ;)
Not really a fan of the les paul pickguard so I'll probably leave it off for now.
chances are any future pickups would be uncovered anyway... may even uncover these.... hmmm, sounds like a plan ;D
