I just recently picked up an EHX SuperEgo and set up a new pedalboard. Here's a looped demo (Zoom G3 looper/drums) I did right after I got it. I'm big into FX to cover up my mediocre playing.
Thanks! The guitar my grandpa built is probably my favorite other than my dad's 1952 Gibson es-125.
I've never asked my grandpa for help building one. To be honest, I'm terrified of how it would come out! I'm positive he would help me though, he's been building things since before I was born. Tractors, boats, guitars, work sheds, quads, wooden models... you name it, he's built it. I have been flirting with the idea of making some wakeskates though. I think that would be much simpler than a guitar!
I only play through the champ 600 and my PA system currently, I recently sold my '59 reissue bassman to a hipster on craigslist. I might be in the market in a few months for a new amp, I'm thinking a Vox ac30 maybe? I'm not playing through a board really right now, I try to keep it as simple as I can. I use a Marshall GV-2 Gov'nor pedal for some crunch and a tuner. That's all I've needed for quite some time. I usually play clean mostly Americana/Texas country type of music but every now and then I'll click on the gov'nor and get after it.
I listened to your loop just now, it sounded great. Reminded me of Incubus in their olden days.
Here's my father's 52 es-125 that I mentioned above.. Please excuse my disheveled look, it was a late night...
Here's a closeup of the Telecaster I was playing the video
