    Current rig:

    Guitars - Ibanez RG1527M Prestige w/DiMarzio D-Activator in bridge
    Ibanez - RG3EX1 w/ Seymour Duncan pickups

    Amp - Peavey 5150

    Cabinet - Marshall JCM900 Lead 1960 w/ Celestion G12T75s

    Pedals/Rack gear - POD X3 Live

    Dream Rig:

    Guitars - Custom Ibanez 7 and 6 strings...I'm completely sold on Ibanez guitars

    Amp - I'm happy with my 5150 but here are some amps I'd like to try

    Framus Cobra
    ENGL Invader 100
    ENGL Special Edition
    ENGL Powerball
    ENGL Savage
    ENGL Fireball 100

    Cabinet - Definitely want a new cabinet...as I find my current one to sound too fizzy and "scooped" sounding

    A Mesa Standard Rectifier 4x12 with Celestion V30s would be great, or an ENGL Pro 4x12 with V30s, OR an Orange PPC412 with V30s

    Pedals/Rack gear - POD X3 Pro, or AxeFX, Furman Power conditioner, Shure wireless system

    I'm getting very close to completing my dream rig with just a couple things yet to add..


    Guitars:

    -ESP EII Horizon, stock
    -Carvin DC700 with BKP Juggernauts (passive electronics only), coil tapping and phase reverse switching.
    -Still need to get backup 7 string..


    Amp:
    EVH 5150 III 100 watt halfstack (would like to add another 4x12 cab)


    On the Floor:
    TCE G System foot controller
    Dunlop Crybaby wah rack controller


    8 Space rack front:
    Monster Power Center
    Line 6 G90 Wireless System
    TCE G System Brain
    ISP Decimator 2 Rack System
    Dunlop Crybaby wah Rack System
    THD Hot Plate 16 ohm
    Mini Amp Gizmo (midi amp channel switching)


    Rack Back, (Gain staging and Eq):
    Loop 1: Xotic BB Preamp/Eq (clean channel)
    Loop 2: DOD 250 Preamp->Wampler Sovreign Distortion->Fromel Shape Eq (rhythm channel)
    Loop 3: Cusack Screamer 2->Fromel Shape Eq (lead channel)
    Loop 4 BBE Sonic Stomp (everything passes through this)

    Pretty simple, super flexible, tone galore! :shred::hbang:
