Thanks!!!...... I was a big Warwick fanatic til about 2005 when I got my first Stingray. At the time my main bass was a Corvette F.N.A. which has the same single Humbucker pickup as the Stingray basses. Only I like how the Stingray was able to get to a really harshly bright tone which worked good mixed with a heavily overdriven bass line. It didn't take me long to drop the whole Warwick thing and acquire nothing but MUSICMAN basses. As far as the Mesa rig,.....been my dream rig since 2004 when the Big Block 750 hit the market. Before that I used 2 Ampeg SVT-3 Pros, through 2 Ampeg PR-410HLF cabs. I've pretty much already figured out that I'll probably be a Mesa fan for life now.

I've had a few guitars. A Gibson Les Paul Studio (the blingy white with gold one), several Peavey Firenzas, a Peavey Nitro and an Ovation Elite 1778T come to mind. Currently I have a Gibson SG Standard, Gibson Flying V Faded and a Peavey Firenza (with P-90s). I'm not much of a guitar player, though. I'm a recovering drummer.

Interesting, I've noticed the common link between love of motorcycling and playing guitar as well.

I played in a garage band during high school and college. At the time I was a decent guitar player. Today I have the equipment, but seldom pick it up.

On the other hand, I ride several times a week...

Been noodling on the guitar for over a decade. I pick it up... I put it down. I've only taken one lesson in my life. Its on my short list of things to accomplish before I die.

Same here, actually been carrying one around for......uh, never mind. A VERY long time, never have taken a lesson but maybe one day.
Anyway, 3 guitars and 5 Mandolins have managed to end up in the house.

I've been playing bass for probably 10 years now, but only seriously for about 5 years...Still just a hobby, though. I'm in a band with another guy on this board, Angst (7 whole posts! wow).

Guitarman, I played in a band in the early 90's around nw houston as well, actually was a harmonica player in the band, was a lot of fun and do miss it sometimes. Sounds like you have plenty equipment to have fun with!

Twenty-Six, I liked the Corvettes as well but Your Stingrays are awesome! I have a Mesa myself, its a mid 90's "Maverick". Absolutly love it, like ya said once a mesa man, always a mesa man!

Racer997, Those peavey Firenzas are great guitars, I love the P-90s, not a very quiet pickup but nothing compares to THAT tone! I just got rid of an Ovation Elite also, partial trade for my '52 Reissue Tele. Not any good at it here either but sure have fun with it!

Txagharrison, You need to break that stuff back out again, You can play and still ride a few times a week.

KeithHubbard, Thats a fine 6 string bass!

Po-Po 5.0, I keep threatning to take lessons too but untill then I'll keep hacking away at it.......stress relief.

BadChev, Funny how they can just appear in the house isnt it. You cant have too many, at least that what I keep telling my wife.....only 20 or so guitars and about 5 amps here...LOL. 5 mandolins...wow!

We just played last night in the Studio room at warehouse live. We try and gig once a month, but we don't have anything lined up for January yet. We'll find something.

www.findingreason.net has a bunch of songs and videos up, as well as a mailing list sign up and links to facebook and twitter...

Ive been playing a couple years now, just got an acoustic for my birthday. Ive been playing drums for about 15 years, and recently got a Djembe. Playing an instrument just takes you to another mindset, and is something I truly enjoy and will pass to my kids. Life without music would be not worth living.

I own a guitar, but I'm no good with it. My problem is I want to play more lead metal type music, but I currently can't do it, and wind up getting discouraged when I don't get it or the sound I want, and am not sure what/how to practice to get to that level.

I have some instruments as well. Ibanez acoustic, a few wood flutes, a couple of ocarinas, djembe, Yamaha Motif 8 keyboard, and about 3000 watts of power, 7ft grand piano, and my brother brought me a Berimbau from Brazil I am most skilled with the piano and keyboard. I play a lot of Metallica songs on the guitar though.

I have 2 electrics and 2 acoustics right now. I like to play blues, old rock, new rock, punk and any/all kinds of metal. I love me some distortion.

I currently have 3 electrics and 1 acoustic. I'm finally closing in on a sound I like, but I think its going to take me a mesa dual rec to get what I really want.

I'm still playing through a Peavey Bravo 112 that I bought in '95 from a shop. At the time I didn't know anything about tone, but it was a tube amp, had good reviews, and at the ripe age of 13 I thought that that was enough to make an amp sound good. I then spent the next 14 years changing tubes, changing guitars, and changing pickups trying to squeeze a tone out of this amp that I was happy with. Finally, about 6 months ago I bought an avatar 2x12 with celestion C30s, and disconnected the internal Blue Marvel speaker in the combo. does it sound a hundred times better. Finally ending up with a LP knockoff made it sound even better. However, its still not exactly what I want. All the artists whos tones I like the most are playing dual/trip recs so in the end....thats probably what I'll get to replace what I have.

Along the way, I've managed to learn a lot about what goes into a guitar tone, and how to shape things to sound pleasing. Well, pleasing to me at least.
