Let's see, I don't have any pictures of my stuff, but I'll tell you what I have.

Roland XP-50: Keyboard/Synthesizer

'57 Vintage Fender Stratocaster in SeaFoam Green: Best. Electric. Guitar. Ever.

Martin D-15: A classic acoustic guitar, I haven't played this guitar in quite some time, I might tune it back up in a little bit.

Reason: Music software.

Cubase: More music software that I don't use as often.

Tascam US-428: My audio controller.

Don't call me crazy. I make music for a living. I get paid to do it.

If you would like to see closer up images or images of other features on the set please inform me i am more than willing to take more photo's.

Also forgot to mention that the set is custom painted with a gloss red similar to a flat red powder coat.

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll94/flatfoot57/Picture003-1.jpg?t=1211516394
Here we have just an overall view of the main sticks i use to play. Some are special and only are made to create certain sounds. Feel free to ask questions.

Above is my personal favorite pair. Used in concert for the band "Pillar" about 6 months ago. Signed by all the band members.

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll94/flatfoot57/Picture005-1.jpg?t=1211516568
The custom Vic Firth SD1 Generals. Big hefty sticks with great sound quality and weight ratio. If ever going to buy sticks, trust Vic Firth!

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll94/flatfoot57/Picture002.jpg?t=1211516657
Also used in concert by a local punk band. Nothin special about them, just free sticks that were thrown at me from the stage.

My multi-rod wooden sticks made from Simba Products! Great way to create spiffy hi-hat beats.

This is the Fender Strat electric guitar that i hardly use, and if i do use t, it sounds similar to that of a chalkboard!.. harsh but true!

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll94/flatfoot57/Picture006-1.jpg?t=1211516867
Just a medium Fender Amp used to, of course amplify the sound.

I have a Schecter Omen-6 guitar with a basswood body and a maple/rosewood neck/fingerboard. It was 300 dollars and is a very good instrument. It has a 25.5 inch scale and 2 Schecter humbucker pickups.
Why chosen: It sounded very hard-rock like John Petrucci's guitar. (His signature model uses the same woods)

Features: basic master volume and tone controls. 3-way pickup selector. Tone-pros locking bridge. (I'm planning to get a bill lawrence l-500 pickup in the bridge pickup slot and a seymour duncan in the neck pickup slot.)

No pics. I will try to put up some if I get the chance.

Ooooh this is awesome! Haha well here is my gear.
Here is my Fender Stratocaster. Cream colored, and has a silver wavy pickboard, but you can't see it in this picture. It also has a maple neck.
This was my first guitar, and I have loved it from the start. I usually use it to play softer songs, but I mostly play metal or hard rock.

This is my Epiphone Explorer from the Prophesy Futura series. Black Cherry Sunburst which is freaking awesome, and I love the sound. Very cheap for such a good instrument, but sometimes it is hard to do pinch harmonics.

http://www.epiphone.com/press/P_FuturaEX-BC.jpg

This my Epiphone Hummingbird which is just a beautiful instrument. Only $300 and has pretty good sound. Love the colors and pickboard. I wish I would play it more for it is such a beauty.

This is my Cordoba. Not a very popular or pricey brand, but great to play classical music. I take a class at school that is only for classical guitars, and I really play well from learning those skills.

This is my Fender Ultimate Choorus Amplifier. I bought it second hand for about $300. I plan on selling it for a Marshall, but I still like it eventhough I have feedback problems with it.

This was my very first amp. It is actually a piece of crap, but I thought I would put this in anyway.

Sorry to say, but don't be a thief. None of those images are yours there for making them illegally stolen from another site. Here is my evidence gathered against you.

First image of the cream colored guitar was stolen from here:
[url]http://www.riversidemusicshop.com[/url]

I doubt that you even own one. I wish not to believe this but the evidence says otherwise.

Second image of your Eciphone was stolen from:
[url]http://www.epiphone.com[/url]

Third image of your hummingbird was stolen from:
[url]http://www.caulfieldmusic.com[/url]

Tisk tisk man

Fourth image of your Cordoba stolen from:
[url]http://www.flamencoshop.com[/url]

Fifth image of your Fender Ultimate Choorus Amplifier stolen from:
[url]http://www.musiciansparadise.net[/url]

Sixth image of your very first amp stolen from:
[url]http://cachepe.zzounds.com[/url]

Final image of your explorer stolen from:
[url]http://img3.musiciansfriend.com[/url]

If you didn't remember what i stated in the first post, well here it is:

*NO* illegal or stolen images in this thread!
images that are not original will be taken off by the administration pronto! Yes, i will be checking the URL of ALL images submitted. So do not think you can get away with it!


So there ya have it!

Well, my favorite instrument is the the trumpet of spam deletion! *trumpet noises in background*

I think Coheed was just trying to find pictures of instruments that he owns without having to upload photos himself.
