    I'm happy with my EVH 5153 50w ivory head and matching Avatar Eminence 212. Along with my LTD JD 600, LTD KH 602 and Charvel San Dimas Snow White and maple.
    But I'm GASSING bad for an ESP custom shop M-II in white with black pickguard and ebony board and reverse head! Oh and a Deizel Hagen!

    My dream rig:

    Ibanez K-7 (because my dream guitar would essentially be a K-7 with UV77MC colour scheme)
    EVH 5150 III > EVH 4x12 cab
    Protone Dead Horse OD
    MXR KFK 10 band EQ
    A noisegate of some kind.

    My current rig:

    Ibanez K-7
    Peavey 6505+ 112 combo

    I have a PodXT that I could use for boost, effects etc but I'm not really happy with the tone so I don't bother. I have a 6505+ 112 instead of a half stack to keep my wife sweet, I don't think she'd be too thrilled about a big old half stack in the living room. Still, it is coming, one day - or at the very least, a 2x12 and a head. At the moment, the 112 is still easily capable of going way, way louder than I could ever really need. I'll be adding the pedals in the next couple of months to really get where I want to be in terms of tone.

    Having a real tube amp instead of a PodXT and a SS Fender amp is such a huge boost, that it sounds amazing to me, even without the pedals I want to tight the low end and tame the fizz. I'm just thrilled to have some tubes!

    I have no use for an ISP sub in my house.

    I guess adding that would complete the dream rig.

    My dream rig would be a RAN Crusher FF8 into an Axe Fx II through a VHT 2/50/2 into a Port City 2x12 with an MFC101 controlling the Axe Fx.

    My current rig is a Carvin DC727 into an Axe Ultra into an Alto TS115a.

    FCB1010
    Strobostomp
    Some kinda power amp
    Z-Best Cab

    After assembling my dream rig, it's really clunky. There's just too much muchness going on there. The board is like 120 pounds and it kinda freaks me out that just one thing going wrong wipes out a whole hour of futzing about with stuff trying to get it to work. So I'm going to sell it off and buy a Kemper.
