Oh man. There is so much gear I wish I had. It's unbelievable.

First, I'd like some sort of nice mic. Right now a realistic choice would be some sort of Rode. Maybe an NT1-A or something. Then, a midi keyboard with lots of controls and those rubber pads would be nice. A good preamp for the mic would rock as well.

In terms of guitars, I'd love some sort of strat like thing to get those nice single coil tones. A Suhr or some type of Music Man with their beautiful piezos could tickle my fancy as well.

Lastly, a quality drumset would complete the package. Perhaps some Gretsch Renowns or Yamaha Maple Customs?

I'm pretty sure my gear list will never end. I did just pick up a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade which is a nice little gear acquisition.

You have a Jackson that's no longer in production and an unbelievably sexy Mesa Boogie. You have nothing to say good sir.

Puh-lease. I'm actually in the process of getting rid of the Mesa. The Switchblade is just more versatile and doesn't require many external effects. I'd like to look into putting some new pickups in my Jackson but that'll have to come after I pick up a keyboard and a mic.

I don't know what "The Switchblade" is, but I'm really surprised you're hocking the Mesa. What pickups were you looking at for your Jackson?

indeed, dream accomplished.

See, he gets it.

I mentioned it in my last post. "The Switchblade" is an amp made by Hughes & Kettner. It's got 4 channels and digital effects built into the amp and every parameter is MIDI assignable. This means that using the footswitch that comes with it I can go from a super wet clean signal with tons of delay and reverb on it to a tight, crunch rhythm tone by stepping on one button. This way I don't have to mess with external multi-FX units or stompboxes. Google it if you want to check it out.

As far as pick ups go, maybe some Seymour Duncans or something. Something that can give me a good metal tone if I want it but also succeed in lower gain stages.

That actually sounds pretty damn sweet. And if you're looking for metal pickups, try Seymour Duncan's Blackout pickups. It's positively crunchy with perfect articulation.

Ibanez RG

Be more vague please. I ask because I have an Ibanez RG7321 and will be upgrading soon and there aren't many seven stringers I know.

same one as yours after checking it

after i get this down i'm getting an 8 string just for the hell of it i'm thinking an 8 string would be a nice drone and/or post rock insturment

If you think you can get some use out of it. I was going to get an 8 and tune it BEADGBEA but I can't afford it among other things. If you're strapped for cash you might want to check this out: http://www.rondomusic.com/intrepidpro8.html Instead of going for the 2228 from Ibby or the new Schecter 8's which are 1200+
