Your most unique/oldest/precious piece of gear

Whether it's a guitar, amp, pedal or a little of each...maybe something you got for next to nothing, or nothing at all

Whatcha got?



For guitars, it would be my 1920s Kalamazoo parlor. Kalamazoo was a guitar company that would later be acquired by Gibson I believe. It was my great uncle's, who sold it to my Grandma when she was a teenager. My great uncle took it with him during the depression when he hopped boxcars throughout the Midwest and Rockies looking for work. For all I know Woodie Guthrie took a turn at playing it. When my Grandma passed in 1995, it was given to me.

For amps, maybe my 1968 Bassman. I've remodded it to AA864 specs (blackfaced) amongst a few other necessary mods like new filter caps, and an adjustable bias. It truly brings teh rawk.
I also have a homemade BF VibroChamp I built from scratch, except I substituted the 8" speaker for a Weber 12" alnico. Now if I can just get it back from my buddy who can't seem to give it up

Pedal wise, it's probably a wah pedal by Thomas Organ, which was the original maker of the famed Vox circuit and the Vox wah. I bought it off a band that was on the road trying to get to their next gig in AL for 35 bucks.

I also have a Maestro PS1 phaser from the 70s complete with remote footswitch. Can't recall where I got it, and an old NY Small Stone. A buddy brought me a broke MXR Phase 100 a few years ago, and I took it out of the junk drawer Sunday and found a shorted diode, now it's good to go. I dated the pots to 1979.

Show yer stuff!

The Wayniac is allowed to buy Marc a drink and leave right after
* A pair of "Nikki Sixx" sunglasses caught from the stage in Pensacola during the 1985 theater of pain tour.

*Gene Simmons bass guitar pick, caught live during Animalize tour 1985.

*Slash's autograph on a ticket stub (1987 - he smelled of weed, whiskey, and b.o.)

*Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) sweatband caught from the stage -Biloxi 1985

*Godsmack drum stick, caught during CPR fest 2002.

*Guns N Roses song/setlist from the stage - on 8x11 paper, written down by Axl Rose (1987)

I have other stuff that isnt as noteworthy, probably 20 guitar picks from famous musicians like Cheap Trick, Goo Goo Dolls, Jake E. Lee, Metallica (St. Anger tour), and Bon Jovi (1987)...... Ive always wondered now with the advent of the internet and Ebay if I could get any money for some of this stuff..... ? Any takers here ?
