After last week’s budget rig challenge, how about the no-holds-barred dream rig? The sky is the limit for the one guitar, one amp and three pedals on a board that we could realistically source. What do we choose and who wins?
Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.
Now we’ve gone and done it. If last week’s budget rig challenge didn’t upset enough people (bizarrely it did), let’s remove the budget and ask what Dan and I would put together with the gear we have available to us. We stopped a long way short of borrowing £500,000 ’59 Les Pauls and £100,000 Dumbles… Maybe that’s for another day. Nope, this one has a toe still on planet Earth, being the kind of gear we actually take out and gig.
Yes, it’s ridiculous, ostentatious and potentially offensive to some people. If that’s you, please chill out, understand that it's a bit of fun. Dan and I have dedicated our //whole// lives to guitar. And this is all we have to show for it. It's tragically hilarious when you look at it like that.
Enjoy the episode!
