Love that shit - Nice solid body electric guitar to play, wood body with sun burst wood grain finish and as a gig guitar...old skool but pretty cool.
A little heavy when strapped....But hey! Price to pay.
I use it for slide bluez.

Washburn Bass d2
Our bass player borrowed it for our concert gigs and liked it better than his Ibenez 5 string.
He said it was because it was light.
Personally I liked his Ibenez better. :(

EKS Cylone just scored this today.
For the cheap assed price I'm actually quite amazed by its performance.
It's a really fuckin nice guitar to play. I would have expected it to be a beginners guitar but it surprised the fuck out of me.:eek:
I'd be quite comfortable playing it in a gig. In fact I can't wait.

I have an aucostic/electric but that one has more sentimental value than performance.

What's your shit?.....Don't have to be a string instruments?

    a really old and shitty Esteban
    Fender Acoustic
    Several Hot Metal harmonicas in different keys
    MS Music Brass Trumpet
    Bongos

    I don't know the specific details because I'm not particularly good at any of these. I'm best at acoustic and harmonica. My most used harmonica keys are Bb, G and A.

    I'd actually really like to do something with &T, where we record one person playing a riff, sending it round and getting everyone else to play over it :P

    It does have a very nice sound, even though its cheep.

    I don't like nylon stringed acoustics. I have one downstairs, and its really not very nice to play at all. Not a cheap one either :mad:

    I play a little bit of classical as well and a steel string acoustic is a little bit hard on the fingers.:(
    To be honest, the nicest nylon string I've ever played was an old broken necked no namer which belonged to a friend - It surprised the hell out of me:eek:

    We did that on Totse2, and it turned out really well. Unfortunately, no one has enough enthusiasm for another song there. I even ended up recording a track with bass, piano, and drums, and I still can't get anyone to record a lead part....

    So I'd love to do something on .info.

    As for the OP, I have a ton of cheap instruments that aren't worth mentioning. What is worth mentioning is:

    -Epiphone Les Paul '56 Reissue with P90s
    -Gibson Melody Maker Reissue
    -'60s Buffet Crampon Alto Sax

    The drummer recorded first and then we just layered on top of it.

    Sweet, I'm now downloading! I'd really enjoy doing a collab between us. Seems like a good idea :D

    I hear a lead in there? :confused:
    Was that the totse2 one you guys did.
    That came together quite well if it was.
    Kudos to the muzos @ totse2 :thumbsup:

    I heard a lead too... Strange, aha :) It was a good song though, props to you guys.

    Fuck! I wouldn't mind learning the clarinet and sax. :thumbsup:
    I had a try of a Yamaha classical at one of the music stores. It was a nice guitar to play.
    What did yours cost? The one I was looking at was $1100 Can't remember the model though.:confused:

    Well I took seven years of lessons, and the piano was in my family, so I didn't have to pay out my ass or anything. But grands are amazing to play. I honestly can't play a keyboard half as well, because the keys have no weight.

    Once you play a grand, it's hard to play anything else. Some keyboards are weighted, but if I'm playing on one that isn't, it's mistakes galore :o

    Yeah, and the keys on keyboards tend to be a bit narrower? That's not cool. I have big hands.

    Our drums are made up of Pearl Drmes and Paiste hats. Well not mine but the drummers personal ones and the bands set mongelized together.
    I can keep the beat on a bass but beatless when it comes to drums.:o:o:o

    The song I posted was collaboration #1. That came together very easily. We had two guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, and a synth. player.

    Collaboration #2 is the leadless track that I was referring to. There was talk for months, but no one ended up recording anything. Finally, I said 'fuck it' and recorded a simple track with bass, drums, and piano, but no one ended up adding a lead part. :sad:

    My mouth.
    Ibanez ACA-15 acoustic amp
    Some shitty Philips mic I found laying around the house. This will get upgraded to a "First Act" mic when I get the proper cable.

    Making music on a budget ftw!

    Can we have a shot @ it bro. Don't know if my style is suited but it may suit another member here. I'll have a fuck around with it though...:thumbsup:

    I think it'd be more fun if we just started from scratch. Someone should make a dedicated collaboration thread and we can begin allocating parts there. I'm sure quite a few people would be happy to participate.

    I think that's an awesome Idea.
    I gotta set my new OS up for it, so if you or someone else wants to start it.
    That shits all good.:thumbsup:
