So glad to hear that was helpful, @FLM
I'm not a jazz/rock/fusion player, but I am huge fan of Tom Quayle, Martin Miller, and Guthrie Govan. I also love guys like Josh Smith, Ariel Posen, Joe Bonamassa, Joey Landreth, Mateus Asato, the list goes on :)
I am a blues/rock/metal player so my main influences there are Eddie Van Halen and Mark Tremonti. These guys influenced not only my playing, but also my rig. I have two rigs currently. One that I used a lot when I was a gigging musician and one now that allows me to have a great sound at bedroom, but also would work for small venue gigs.
I'm running all Peavey amps. Rig1 is a wet/dry setup consisting of a 6505+ and XXL. The 6505+ is running through a Marshall 1960B cab with Celestion G12T75 speakers and the XXL is a 2x12 combo running the stock Sheffield speakers. A couple of years ago I went fully digital for effects and so I'm using a Zoom G3n in the effects loop of the XXL for delay, pitch-detune, compression, and phaser.
My other rig is a wet/dry setup consisting of a Vypyr 100 Pro and a Vypyr VIP 2. These are both 1x12 combo modeling amps. I run the VIP 2 as the dry on the 6505 model and the Pro 100 is on the 3120 model with delay and reverb. I've got another Zoom G3n doing pitch-detune, compression, and phaser in the Pro 100's effects loop.
Guitars are PRS USA made Tremonti signature, Sterling JP150 with Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz set with a push/pull for single-coil tones, and PRS SE Singlecut are my main axes. Got a few others too, but those are my go-to axes.
Well that was probably an overshare, but you hit one of my favorite topics. Love to hear what rig you're running and we've got to get Wes in on this too.
