    Electric Guitars? Just two, Uli Roth's Tokyo Tapes Strat, Blackmore's "Burn" Strat.

    Electric Guitar Amplifiers? Uli Roth's 70s Marshall.

    Wah Wah Pedal? Schenker's from earliest MSG, preset at his sweet spot.

    1 Favorite Car? Mint Porsche 944.

    1 Favorite Style Of Home?. A new, near- perfect Tudorian castle.

    1 Favorite Sport? Boxing, no contest with other sports. I rarely even watch football these days (yeah, even though my quite recently adopted home team won the Super Bowl lol!).

    The insect You Hate The Most? Spiders, especially big 'uns. Crickets here in Missouri are big and scary enough to be put on steroids and star in a horror movie.

    The Insect You Love The Most.?  Ladybug

    You're Favorite "body place" between Breast, Ass and Groin? Too easy! Bellybutton.

  • Haffner that's cool that you're a boxing fan, me too. 

    I need more time for all those other questions though.

    5 Electric Guitars?
    A white Gibson SG with Iommi pickups, an ESP Horizon superstrat with SD Black Winter pickups, a Gibson CS-336, a Rickenbacker bass.  

    2 Acoustic Guitars?
    No idea. I love the sound of a nice acoustic, but I never seriously considered buying one. 

    5 Electric Guitar Amplifiers?
    I'm super happy with my Marshall DSL 50 but I'd gladly add a Peavey 5150 to the collection, and a Marshall Lemmy Signature Superbass for the bass. 

    2 Overdrive Pedal?
    I have no use for that. 

    Wah Wah Pedal?
    Dunlop Crybaby, not the cheaper ones. I'm pretty happy with my CFH. 

    2 Fuzz Pedal?
    Useless for me as well.  

    2 Distortion Pedal?
    Useless for me 

    3 Echo / Delay Pedals?
    I'm already happy with my MXR Carbon Copy. 

    2 Chorus Pedals?
    Useless

    1 Compressor Pedal?
    Useless

    1 Tuner Pedal?
    My Korg Pitchblack works just fine. 

    2 Flanger Pedals?
    Useless

    2 Phaser Pedals?
    I have a Mooer Orange 90 and a venerable DOD 201, I don't need more.  

    1 Octave Pedal?
    Not sure what I would do with that, but I'd look for the Digitech ones. 

    Brand of Guitar Cables?
    I use Cordial cables, no complaint. 

    Brand of Power Supplies?
    T-Rex

    Brand of Strings?
    D'Addario

    1 Looper Pedal?
    TC Electronic Ditto

    1 Envelope Filter?
    I don't even know what these things do. 

    1 Favorite Horse Breed?
    Irish Cob.

    1 Favorite Dog Breed?
    I seem to get along well with Bernese mountain dogs, but I never owned a dog. 

    1 Favorite State Park in the U.S.A. ?
    No idea, never visited. Yellowstone looks fantastic in TV docos. 

    1 Favorite Country to Live In?
    I can't tell. You have to spend a relatively long time somewhere to be able to weigh the pros and cons. In my whole life I never spent more than a few months out of France. So I'll prudently stick with France. So far, it's still tolerable. 

    1 Favorite State or Territory or Whatever?
    Some remote parts in the center of France or in the south-west near the Pyrénées mountains. 

    1 Favorite Hair Color?
    It depends on who's under the hair... 

    1 Favorite Car?
    Jaguar E-type 1965. One of the most beautiful vehicles ever made, along with some WWII warbirds and current Sukhoi jets. 

    1 Favorite Truck?
    No idea, I can't even name a model.

    1 Favorite SUV?
    None. I hate these things... 

    1 Favorite Beautiful Woman or Handsome Man You'll Never Meet Much Less Touch?
    I'm tempted to say Scarlett Johansson, but you never know what tomorrow will bring, so I'll go with Simonetta Vespucci: she died in 1476, so I'm 100% sure I'll never get to touch her.  

    1 Favorite Style Of Home?  ..... pick anything.
    A nice old cottage in a remote countryside area with a piece of woodlands and a little river or a pond. 

    1 Favorite Sport?
    I really don't care about sports... 

    1 Favorite Brand of Pants?
    Dunno. The one I'm wearing right one has a label "Esprit" and it's nice enough. 

    Your favorite Fish to Fish For?
    I liked to fish when I was in my early 20s. Tench required subtlety, blackbass was a lot of fun. 

    The insect You Hate The Most?
    I don't hate any insect. Some can be troublesome, but they're such a triumph of life that I admire them anyhow. 

    The Insect You Love The Most.?
    Dragonflies. 

    You're Favorite "body place" between Breast, Ass and Groin?
    It depends on whose body it is...

    A 58 Les Paul? LOL. :p

    5 Electric Guitars? Like Haffner said, Uli's strat wouldn't suck. If I can't get that, a Chubtone made to those exact specs would be awesome. Also, another Chubby really sick super strat to my personal specs, and a couple or really good Les Paul customs, one in white/cream like Randy Rhoads, one in black like John Sykes'. Also, a medallion Flying V like those Schenker played in the 70's. EDIT: I also wouldn't mind an Ibañez Destroyer. Either a 70's model like EVH's or Chris Holmes', or an 80's one like Phil Collen's.

    2 Acoustic Guitars? A couple of Martins. Nylon string, classical ones. Nothing too fancy but good.

    5 Electric Guitar Amplifiers? a 12xxx series 1968 Marshall Superlead, like EVH's. DeMartini's and Lynch's. A blackface Fender Twin Reverb, a Metropolous MetroPlex, Soldano SLO, That new Blug that just got announced. Oh and a Friedman BE100. All paired with their proper 4x12 cabs. The marshall would need to have pre rola celestions on them.

    2 Overdrive Pedal? Volume. LOL. seriously, so many choices here. A Tube Screamer and a treble booster based on the one Blackmore or the priest guys used. A Solo Dallas Schaffer replica too.

    Wah Wah Pedal? a good Crybaby. Somethign that sounds like the ones Schenker used.

    2 Fuzz Pedal? Never used one. I suppose whatever David Gilmour or Eric Johnson use. a 70's big muff I suppose.

    2 Distortion Pedal? a Suhr Riot and an OCD. Or maybe a Friedman BE OD if I can't get the amp

    3 Echo / Delay Pedals? A carbon Copy I suppose. Nothing too fancy but that sounds good.

    2 Chorus Pedals? A boss Dimension C

    1 Compressor Pedal? a Keeley compressor

    1 Tuner Pedal? anything that works

    2 Flanger Pedals? the one EVH used on Unchained. MXR, if I am not mistaken.

    2 Phaser Pedals? The one you are using. I seem to recall you said it was the bee's knees. Or something good based on thr classic mxr phase 90 that gives me those 70's sounds.

    1 Octave Pedal? Never used one

    Brand of Guitar Cables? monster cables? something that doesn't break easily

    Brand of Power Supplies? not very familiar but those expensive ones on musician friends or sam ash

    Brand of Strings? I have been using dunlop for years. Not too picky on this.

    1 Looper Pedal? No need for this

    1 Envelope Filter? Don't even know what that is

    1 Favorite Horse Breed? arabian

    1 Favorite Dog Breed? too many to mention. But I have a sweet spot for Siberian Huskies

    1 Favorite State Park in the U.S.A. ? Mmm, of those I have been to, Griffin park in LA. From the movies, Central in NYC.

    1 Favorite Country to Live In? I would love to live in Canada (I am actually seriously considering it) Of those I have been to, I would enjoy New Zealand, England or the Czech Republic. I have also lived in the states and wouldn't mind it if needed.

    1 Favorite State or Territory or Whatever? I like Quntana Roo in Mexico, hawaii and california in the states, cataluña in spain.

    1 Favorite Hair Color? depends of the female it's attached.

    1 Favorite Car? lambourginis

    1 Favorite Truck? Ford F150's.

    1 Favorite SUV? No such thing

    1 Favorite Beautiful Woman or Handsome Man You'll Never Meet Much Less Touch? Those hot women on the big screen would be nice. Amber Heard, Scarlett Johansson, Margot Robbie. From the old days, Caroline Munroe, Claudia Cardinale, Raquel Welch. Basically anyone that was hot and on tv when I was a kid lol.

    1 Favorite Style Of Home?  ..... pick anything. I have found I can be happy in plenty of spaces. But it has to have a man cave for all my stuff.

    1 Favorite Sport? Football. The real, european and played in latin america one.

    1 Favorite Brand of Pants? Anything that works.

    Your favorite Fish to Fish For? Never fished

    The insect You Hate The Most? cockroaches, I suppose?

    The Insect You Love The Most.? Bees.

    You're Favorite "body place" between Breast, Ass and Groin? Depends of the lady it's attached to, but I find the area below the waist, both front and back, to be what I gravitate the most. ;)

    What do I need? Jimmy Page's LP instead of mine? Or Gary's. Would be nice, but it would be in storage 99% of the time like my 54. I've been fortunate enough to acquire some nice instruments and gear customized to my own needs. More importantly (IMO), I've actually used them to write, record, and play music live.  Just owning stuff for the sake of owning it, or looking at it, or playing it in isolation at home never did it for me.

    I can attest (as I'm sure others here can, too) that a particular instrument can inspire you to write.  But it doesn't necessarily have to be a holy grail instrument. It just has to inspire you (enough) in the moment. I know, for example, that one of the best riffs and songs I'll ever write (Dogs) was written on my beater MIM Strat -- the cheapest guitar I own. And the vast majority of the music we love here was often NOT created on some holy grail axe.  See Van Halen's Frankenstein Strat. Was that his holy grail axe? A guitar he dreamed of owning? I think not. It was something he cobbled together out of necessity to do the job he heard in his head. Don't forget. From the age of about 14 till they got Roth, EVH was a Les Paul player.

    Guitars are first and foremost tools. They can be absolutely beautiful and magical tools, but they should remain tools. Guitars don't want to be "collected," and just hung on walls as artwork. They want to be PLAYED. The need to be touched, tuned, and strummed so that the strings resonate through the body. They need the strings changed, and your finger oils seasoning the wood. They shouldn't be left in environments too dry or too humid.  If they aren't played, they start falling into disrepair and dying.  Doesn't mean you bring a vintage 7 figure axe on an Aerosmith or ZZ Top tour, but you need to play it regularly enough so that when you go back to it, it's still magical. You didn't kill it.  This is kind of why I don't want more guitars than I actually need.  (And yes, I have a few more than I technically need).
