    Hello!

    I'm new here. I'm British and have been living in Stockholm since March 2002. I'm a big fan of early Guns N Roses and of guitars. I am also somewhat partial to Marshall amps.

    Gear-wise, my Edwards LP copy and Gibson LP Jr DC take turns in the #1 position. Those of you with keen memories may recognise the LP Jr - it was listed for sale here (among other places) until I fell in love with it.

    Marshall 9001 and (on the left) 9005 power amp. ART Multiverb for delay, Alesis Quadraverb for reverb. Both of them mostly unused. Rocktron Hush IIC unplugged as the whole rig is really quiet! Also, Marshall 1922 cab for one half of the stereo output.

    Marshall JCM900 Master Volume. This is a fairly rare beast which was replaced with the dual reverb model soon after its launch. It's very much like a JCM800 with a built-in distortion pedal (which I always leave off). The head goes to the 4x12. The 2x12 is for the other half of the 9005.

    Bass rig: GK 400RB MkIV into a Rane DC Compressor. Marshall 1550 15" bass cab (with a replacement speaker).

    Gibson LP Jr DC (refinished in white, with upgraded pots & caps and Bare Knuckles P90). I threw on some Schaller straplocks and had a strap made for me. I love this guitar!

    Thanks. Yes, the gear acquisitions have been a bit out of hand recently...but getting what you want is seriously underrated!

    My band has fallen apart, so I doubt there will be any more purchases for a while. (ha!)

    Cool gear. I hope to get a Marshall again someday. I recently fell for LP JRs as well, so I know what you mean on that front.
    Have fun.

    Thanks for the welcome, folks.

    Come to think of it, I DO have quite a bit of gear. I sold a bass yesterday and, as usual, the first thing the guy said upon entering my lair was "Wow, what a lot of stuff"! What can I say? Buy when the price is low, don't waste money on cigarettes, and make sure you have enough saved to cover any catastrophe so you don't need to sell any of it!
