    :D Time for an update after 2 years!
    ISP Vector SL: Actually ended up aquiring a Rivera Sub 2 instead and am quite happy with it.... So much so I'm in a toss trying to aquire either a second one here in Canada or a Rivera KS 312 (2x12" w/ Sub 1 in the bottom) locally... :lol:
    Digitech GSP1101: Got one and ended up selling it not long after having it. Discovered some limitations to the unit that doesn't work for me. Even tried the Axe-FX Ultra and ended up going back to pedals w/ MIDI switchers. Love my rig and am not gonna fuck with anything else again.
    Trailer Trash Pedalboard: Aquired! Love it.
    Bogner Uberschall Rev. Blue w/ Uberkab: Still on the want list... one day.
    2nd Ibanez K-7: Not too high on the priority list anymore. I'm thinking another RG2228 or RGD2127FX will come before it.
    Axess FX1 w/ Expander and GRX4: Aquired a 2nd GRX4 but have almost given up on the notion of the FX1 w/ expander. Don't need the expander and the FX1's are hard to come across and when they do, @ too high a price for a discontinued MIDI controller. My GCPro does the trick so I'm just gonna stay where I am me thinks.
    Cantrell Wah: I actually am wah-less now. Not sure if I wanna get another.... The only one I might grab is the Andreas Kisser wah (huge fan-boi/influence) or maybe even the rack wah for the right price).

    Current rig:
    Ibanez S5470F prestige
    Siggery Custom 7 string(Ibanez S series body shape)<---8 months into build atm
    Custom Zilla Fatboy 2x12
    Blackstar s1-100 head <---- On order, expected next month

    Dream Rig:
    Exactly the same as my current rig, but in a futuristic existence, when my siggery 7 is finally finished and my blackstar has arrived!

    Also, I'd really love to try a 6 string strandberg with the special neck they do. Can't put it on the dream list as I've never played one but I'd love to have a go. Same goes for an ebmm JP7, never tried one but EVERYBODY uses them! What is so special!? What am I missing!? :lol:
