I just plug into my 100 watt amp and pick up any of my guitars and rock out as long as my ears can stand it... I've asked the neighbors if they ever heard me and they're always saying they can't so that's a GO Houston!

Not to bring the thread back on point , but it's a tribute to the Wee Heavy from Mickey Finn's up in Libertyville, IL. They serve theirs in big glass goblets, and by all rights it should come with a cab ride home included

The bubbles start anywhere from 2 hours to three days. If you make a starter, the fermentation starts faster.

Fenders mostly

Guitars:
Fender Telecaster Deluxe (US) (Natural Ash) (1976)
Fender Stratocaster w/ Floyd Rose (Mexican) (Black/Black) (1999)
Fender Stratocaster (Mexican) (White/Midnight Wine) (2001)
Fender Stratocaster Squire (Chinese) (Red Tortoise/Black) (2000)
Kaman Matrix Electric/Acoustic (US) (Sunburst) (1981)
Dean Markley Piece o'Crap (Black) (Just waiting for the moment to smash it) (199?)

Amps:
Fender Princeton Reverb (1976)
Line 6 Vetta Combo (2002)
Line 6 Vetta Combo FBV Longboard (2003)
Pignose Hog 20 Amp (1999)
Another small 10 watt Amp for the road

Pedals:
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone (2001)
Digitech RP-300 Multi-effects (2002)
Electra Metal Max (608HM) (2003)
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Deluxe (1970s)
Electro-Harmonix Linear Line Booster (1970s)
Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Phase Shifter EH4800 (1970s)
Ibanez GE10 Graphic Equalizer (1980s - for the acoustic)
MXR Distortion + (1970s)
MXR Noise Gate Line Driver (1970s)

Trash:
Matrix Quartz Tuner - SR-1000 (2 each)
Exacto Quartz Metronome
Headphones (w/1/8 jack and adapter)
Several guitar stands
Assorted cables (working and not working), capos, picks, etc.


The Chinese Strat (this one's my beater) plays better than the Mexi's after I upgraded the pickups. I originally bought it to take to Kosovo and the sand box. I bought the Kaman acoustic (they own Ovation) just for the acoustic part in Aqualung during the last time I was in a band.

Just to close this out, I had decent activity in the starter after 24 hours and by the time I was ready to pitch. Just 12 hours later, and the primary is chugging along like a steam train. All's well that ale's well.

Sweet. That one tele is older than I am! I've got a 02? Fender American Strat that has the natural ash finish. I love it. It replaced a very similar one that was stolen. And the wood grain on that one was so much better...
I also have a 99 fender American Jazz Bass V and an 04 mexican fretless jazz bass. You've seen the tuba. It's an early 80's Mirafone 186 CC tuba. I also own a Yamaha acoustic guitar, a trombone, a trumpet, an Ovation mandolin, and, an accordion. Then there's the computer, software, and synthesizers...
