love the Gibsons BUT that Marshall half stack kicks AZZ right there brother. Best your money can buy. We use to use peavey monitors cuz they got kicked around a lot but all my sound came via my Marshall stack. I used a Sun amp with it. Just about went broke with the stack and couldn't afford the amp. The Sun was free, because of my charming personally!!! NOT

I had a coupla Jackson Bass' 1 was hand made and I got one from Lita Ford.

Nice.. I love Sunn amps... I borrowed a SUNN Modelt T for a show once.... it ruled.

Yeah. I have 2 Marshall Cabinets... a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier (150 watts)..... I play in a 3-piece band.. so I split the half stacks up so i can project sound off both sides of the stage.. instead of just being one dude on one side of the sound.... It makes the bass guitar blend with the guitar better and it sounds thick as F***. smile   I used to used strictly Gibson SG's - but I sold 2 of them and now I mainly play Telecasters with Humbuckers....  I use a Tele Thinline with a Tele Deluxe neck right now... It's amazing.

Here are a few pics of my other interests:

John Force die cast collection.

Guitars (Ibanez JS signed by Joe Satriani, Ibanez RD 470, and an Alvarez acoustic, Crate stack.)  There are 5 Joe Satriani signatures in there (along with a pic or me with Joe.

My current "toy", a 2002 Z06 with a few mods . . . 385 RWHP.

Thanks!  Some days I really miss the car.  It was never cut at all, just had a 6-pt bar and slightly narrowed rear end.  My current car, the Z06, is a ton of fun, but I have the urge to do something old again.  I REALLY want to build a wicked '32 Ford roadster, in the spirit if this one.

Yeah, I like the old ones.  Both Novas I had were 1972's.  I once had a 72 Chevelle too.  That was probably my fave.  I always liked Vettes but way to expensive for me.  My Uncle has a '32 (fibreglass kit car) with a 600 hp blown small block Chevy.  It is BAD.

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I'm really surprised I haven't seen any posts on people that collect vintage skateboards and snowboards...unless I missed it. But check out some of my collection! If anybody has an old snowboard or skateboard that they want to sell then just email me!

This is just a sample...I didn't want to post too many pics:

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

Did someone say snowboards? I've got a couple of those, too. Had them since they were new. I'd LOVE to get some more of the early wood Burton ones. I think I have some of the early catalogs laying around, too.

I have recently gotten really into riding trails with my 24" DK but I don't have any pictures of that...yet.

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I have a bunch myself. I used to play guitar, I want to pick it up again. Hot wheels of course. I do custom hotwheels, models, etc. I am getting into collecting old steel road bike frames. I think the lugged ones are works of art.

I used to be a air cooled vdub guy too. I have a couple old transformers that were mine when i was young. I have about a dozen diffrent R2D2. I auto-x, run hpde, mess with r/c cars a bit. I have a collection of misfit records that someone on here would die for. To much going on really..lol
