Ha ha … sorry for the tease.

 :)

I've been working long hours so wanted to wait until I got some decent daylight for the first few pics.
And would you believe that this morning the skies were dark black with our first 'winter storms' in the north east of England.

Anyway … pics soon.

Looks beautiful Richard, and sure the tones will match.  But best that we are the judge of that ... nudge, nudge  ;)  ;) say no more, say no more

What does it sound like?

Early days - I just had a one-hour noodle playing random stuff.
My electric chops are embarrassingly shabby.
I've been acoustic for about two years with virtually no electric play time since my band disbanded.
I like it.
It feels good.
I think I may just fall in love with it.
:)

I'm so lucky.
It was a gift ... an early Christmas present from someone kind, generous and amazing.

:) :) :) :)

You deserved it, Richard. You’re a great person :) I’m glad that you liked it. I love my Am Special. It’s just special.

Now, you have no excuse to join the weekly challenge ;)

Ha ha.
Thanks Omar.
Special indeed - as is yours.

I was trying to play over some backing tracks … it wasn't great.  :-[

A fitting gift for someone who is also kind, generous and amazing Richard. I'm so happy for you. There will be healing in this for you.

Just found this thread after not looking in on the forum for a year or so now. That is an impressive  list of guitars, it puts us all to shame. Also the black vintage strat is still going strong.
All the best.

Looks very neat and tidy Richard. I think the Zoom G3 was my first MFX... I wonder what my playing would sound like over it now... might have to dig out my Zoom MS50G multistomp to try it out and compare to what I've got now... be interesting to see how much of it was my playing and how much of is gear.

Very neat and tidy, maybe one day when I'll be able to climb on a property ladder I can get a room like this too! I was expecting a lot more guitars from you tbh with so much experience and comparing to what other folks on the forum have :)

@ Rossco

The Zoom G3 is a whizz-bang of a multi-fx imho. I used a G3 then a G3X in a live situation and they never let me down. Robust, intuitive to set and use, great sounds. My rig was basic - a G3 running into a Peavey Valveking 112 combo - no more - I was ready to rock with just that. A few people with their massive pedal boards and 4x12" cabs scoffed but to heck with them. I wasn't playing open air festivals, I was playing small indoor venues and had all I needed and more.

@ adi_mrok
I used to have a lot of gear - though most of it successively, not consecutively.
I had reasons to clear out and am very minimal now.
Not even an amp - I had a Katana Mini that I recently gave to my grandson.

I have omitted to photograph / mention a Digitech FS3x for the Trio+, a Scarlett Solo interface plus two microphones plus a music stand, microphone stand plus a few bits n pieces.

The desk + cabinet + chair cost me the princely sum of £70. 2nd hand from facebook marketplace.
As were the guitar hangers. All the electronics apart from the Trio+ were bought 2nd hand. Both guitars were new - a rarity for me.

@sairfingers
Gordon - simple & minimal means easy to keep tidy. :)
