Re: Guitar addicts! Post your gear here...
I have been using amplitube instead of a real amp for a while, I used to use guitar rig but they made it suck with newer versions, besides, I noticed a popping sound with it that disappeared when using amplitube. If I was going to seriously play though I'd get a real setup but for just goofing around in my small house using my computer works for now. I do have an old Peavy PA system but I don't have the room to set it up, it's out in the shed collecting dust. My first guitar is a Fender Lead II that is modified for heavy metal with one humbucker and kept one single coil. I also put a floyd rose on it. It has an awesome neck, good necks are quartersawn you should be able to see the grain like lines on a piece of paper. For the finish I rubbed in a yellow/green/black sunburst pattern with a hard lacquer surface, buffed it to a nice smooth glass like finish. The other is a cheap but functional Peavy tracer that I got for 60 bucks in 2001. I use it for practice to keep my fender in good condition.
