A few days ago, someone started a chat about guitars while we were waiting for a new map to begin. Turned out there are a few SWAT 4 players who play the guitar. I noticed that in the Entertainment sub-forum the music-related topics are quite popular, so I thought why not post some pics of our guitars.

So, to start off, here is my Fender Custom Telecaster Reissue in 3-tone sunburst.

Image

Most of my guitars are no longer stock. The pickups on this one are the Joe Barden 'Danny Gatton T-set', made by Barden himself when his business was still a one-man operation. The bridge and the brass saddles were made by Callaham, with a more fuctional design and better material than the stock bridge. The electronics and controls have been upgraded with better components.

Here is a closer look at the body and the electronics:

Image

I hope my fellow guitar players here would join in to post some pics of their gear. Perhaps this is the start of a thread that is a bit different from what people would normally expect in a PC game forum? :lol:

Thanks for the comments. :)

In order to get away from piano lessons, I started playing the guitar at around 12, so it has been decades since I started. It was the classical for the first couple of years and then I moved on to electric.

I used to be in bands (amateur Top 40 cover band for party gigs and a grunge band trying to make it big) when I was a student. Playing music is actually more enjoyable when I play only to amuse myself. Don't worry about not having enough time to play, as long as you enjoy it whenever you are able to, then it is cool.

For a SWAT 4 band, the VIP would be perfect to be the front man/lead singer. Why?

1. He is the only one with that smart John Travolta jacket.
2. Sometimes when he gets killed, he makes a abrupt cry in high pitch. I think he has some vocal potential. Perhaps not in falsetto a la Bee Gees, but somewhat in the Ian Gillan/Robert Plant territory.
3. The VIP often dances around when naded, so there is some Mick Jagger in him.
4. The VIP is the central character of the game, so he is used to getting all the attention. Reminds me of Morrissey, formerly of The Smiths.

The only snag is, in 1.1 there is only Abomb Night Club that has a stage. The Seller Street Auditorium map is not available, so there is only one venue.

up you see two original fotos from the shop i bought it.

Well. without Music World would be a poor place.

I spamed with much more picture to give some impressions about the Feeling if you put the cable into the Amp and feeling the Electricity and the Power you can ride and surf.

the Universal Laws.

Thanks, Mata, for posting photos of your gear.

That PRS is one sweet guitar. I'd bet it is a Les Paul killer. Come to think of it, Gibson guitars these days are way too overpriced with dodgy quality control issues.

I have always wanted a Vox AC-30, but I have no use for yet another loud amp. Even my own loud amps don't get much use these days. But if I won the lottery and space is no longer a concern, I would consider getting one for sure.

What a coincidence that you also own a Mesa Boogie amp. Here is a shot of my vacation amp, with a couple of my vacation guitars. The guitars are a Fender Stratocaster '62 vintage reissue and a Fender Custom Telecaster reissue that I have posted a photo here before. Behind them is my Mesa Boogie Mark II-C amp (factory upgraded to C+ specs in 2009).
Image

Like my Tele, this Strat's has also been modified. Except for the neck (and the tuners) and the body wood, everthing else have been replaced with better parts.

And here are my own Les Paul killers. A cherry sunburst Yamaha SG-2000S (my first electric) and a black SBG-2000. Both have different models of Seymour Duncan pickups. The Boogie Mark II-C+ amp again is behind them. These gutiars sound great with this amp:
Image

I also have a early 1960's Fender Champion lap steel. Hello, Dark Side of the Moon!
Image

This is the amp that sounds great with my Fender's (including the lap steel). It is a 1970's Mesa Boogie Mark I 1x15 combo. This thing is so heavy, that it requires 2 persons to lift it (the cabinet is too wide and heavy to be safely carried by 1 person). Because of this, it has been sitting in its Anvil case in storage for more than 10 years.
Image

You have a B.C Rich that needs repair work. I also have a shredder that needs some major TLC. This is a late 1980's Kramer Pacer Custom I. When I got this guitar, it was in rough shape. There is a splitting crack on the peghead, behind one of the tuners. The Floyd Rose bridge shows significant amount of rust, pitting and play between the parts. The arm was jammed to the bridge and drops down. Only the humbucking pickup works and it does not sound very good. To do a proper job, I will need time to get all the parts and do everything in one go. Not sure when will I get to it. The SKB case is a spare that I have around. Whoever owned this guitar previously did not care to maintain the instrument properly. Little wonders that the original case was missing when I got the guitar.
Image

I have some more stuff that are in storage, including a classical, 6-string acoustic, a Fender Precision Bass, and more 6-string electric. And then, there are the effects (stompboxes and rackmounted stuff). Also in storge is my MemoryMoog and some recording gear. What the hell did I do with the money I made from pumpin' gas and flippin' burgers...........

Last but not least, this is the one electric that I use most often these days. It is a Yamaha SG-1996, a limited edition model (120 examples were made) to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the SG series. This is actually a even closer Les Paull killer than my other two Yamaha's. Instead of having a neck-thru body, this one has a set neck a la Gibson Les Paul. Again, the pickups have been replaced with a set of Seymour Duncan '59s. At home, I use a small (1x8 combo) Epiphone Electar Tube 10 amp with it. When I play out, I would use whatever amp is available. If it is just a sit-in for a number or two in clubs, I would just use whoever's gear. I am lazy.
Image

Before my move, I sold my Ampeg SVT amp with the 8x10 cabinet. There was no way I could store them at my parent's house while I am out of the country. That is why I don't take my Precision Bass out of storage during my vacation. Now that I have ordered a Rickenbacker 4003S, I need a bass amp again....

I was told the photos did not show. Don't know how to edit the post so here goes:

EDIT: I just found out I was able to edit my previous post, so the missing photos from it are amended.

Thanks for the comments, Troll m8y. I am not familiar with tinypic but I will be watchful from now on.

This is what I am expecting some time next Spring, the exact same colour. This photo was posted by the maker:

I think tinypic removes the picture when there aren't many views.
You got a decent setup there though
