Well, well, well. It's that time again!!! . These are the rules:


Please post pictures of your rig ready to go, wired up, passing signal. This is not a "gear collection" contest. It's all about the RIG.
Maximum of 2 guitars in the rig picture. For the same reason as above.
Pictures used on previous BOTRs will not be allowed. Please take a new picture for this contest
You can enter multiple categories if you have different rigs. But only one entry per category is allowed. For example if you have a combo and a 1/2 stack you can enter both categories. If you have 2 half-stacks, pick your best one and enter once in that category.
The post threads will be open Monday May 14 until Monday May 21 12PM PST. After that point Billy or I will lock the post threads and create voting polls.
Voting starts on the 21st and goes until Saturday May 26th 12PM PST. 5 days should be enough for voting.
The winners of each category will then compete for "Best Overall Rig of 2018" From May 28th to June 3rd.


WE HAVE PRIZES

Individual Category winners will receive a pack of ThroBak Vintage Choice Pure Nickel Round Core Electric Guitar Strings in gauges 10-46.

Grand Prize is TBD at this point.


Contest is open to all GAB members with 10 posts or more.
Creating alts for voting purposes will automatically disqualify you, not to mention you will also get some days off. :lol:
Inviting new members to join and vote is not only allowed, it is encouraged! Help spread the word about GAB.

Finally, please keep the post threads for gear pictures only and take all the discussion to this thread. That will keep things easier.

Thanks!!!!!!!!

EDIT: I will not be in town or near a computer until Monday, so I'll set up the overall poll and thread then.

seconded, thanks GM!!!
I'll post pics of my rig tomorrow, was gonna try the poverty section but since my new guitar doubled the cost of my rig, I can't anymore. Will participate in the combo rig instead.

Diocide, I love how half of your board is all stuff you built. That's pretty damn awesome.

I'm gonna try to get mine set up tonight. I should have rigs for head/cab, combo, budget and large pedalboard. Just wanna take some new pics first :D

Hey guys, try to keep all discussion posts in this thread here. I know EVERYONE is gonna post some sweet rigs worth talking about, but we wanna keep the talk to one place so it's easier to count up entrants for voting when done.

Why thank you sir! I’m looking forward to see what everyone puts together. That Astoria is no slouch. And Neil ‘s JVM combo rig is quite awesome in its own right.

haha.. thanks... like I said earlier he's a local builder and repair guy here in Trinidad.... both amps and guitars/basses... so it's really not that surprising no one has heard of him outside of Trinidad.

this is his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Jonathan-Krogh ... 011963275/

so really cool shit there, and I still think it's not quite up to date...

This is probably for me. My bad. I just thought Kurdula's rig pic with Draelyc in the background was worthy of comment. :lol:

Dude nothing to apologize for. I just moved your post over to this thread. And honestly I don’t fault the comment.

Was scrolling down his FB page, his build and repair work is looks indeed great as well, he seems to be a multi talented guy. Cool to have such options locally. Even if he is the only builder in Trinidad, the custom builder per inhabitant ratio is still top notch ;)

Yes, looking forward as well and no doubts regarding Neil's JVM, if I recall correctly I voted last year for his rig :cool:

Btw in the head/cab thread I’m noticing a ton of Marshall and Marshall-style amps so far (not sure if the Krogh is Marshall style or not). Not a bad thing.

haha.. yeah, he does some amazing work, the condition that ES-345 was in when he got it, it was basically fire wood, now it's one of the most amazing guitars I've ever played. He's also the one who restored my 1968 Fender TElecaster Bass, that too was a total cluster fuck......the best part is that helps that we grew up together so I get some solid deals and I'm able to convince him to try different things he wouldn't ordinarily do on builds...

It most definitely is Marshall based :thu: :thu: It's basically a Plexi that's internally jumped

Yeah, it's draelyc in the background of one and it's the Vegas ampfest in the background of the other. I pulled them up on youtube and let the autoplay take over lol.

Steve elected to keep the Plexi rig in the running for voting, but I didn't want his pictures of the Cherry Bomb/Bottle Rocket headswitching rig to go to waste. So I moved them here for drooling.

I'm surprised we have nothing in modeling or home studio. I know some of you cats have some sick studio setups and I know at least Jive Turkey is on the modeling train.

That’s the most accurate name for it. :lol:

Btw, nice combo setup. Good to see some Rivera love in here. I have zero experience with their amps by always pleasant to see them.

Btw, nice combo setup. Good to see some Rivera love in here. I have zero experience with their amps by always pleasant to see them.


Thanks! Paul Rivera had a column in a German guitar magazin in the early nineties and since these days I always wanted one. Finally I got the R55 in 2000 and I did never regret this purchase.

Nevertheless, your handwired AC30 plays in a different league. Had once the chance to play one of these and they sound glorious! :thu:

I don't really see the r series much, glad to see an r55 on the board though. I've had my r30 for about 8 years now and it's one of the most versatile amps I've ever played. Love these things.

With the dearth of posts in the recording rig section, I may post mine just for fun (it's basically the same setup but with a laptop, AI, and mic/stand) nothing fancy.

I might throw mine up too. It’s just my Mac and Blackjack Onyx and maybe the tascam. But whatever.

Btw Steve’s amp’s gut shots are beautiful.

Hmm, that'll probably beat my old BOSS ME-70 rig :lol:

I purposely didn't post my Helix rig because it's currently in the Emporium section.

And iff brought his Mrak out to play! I love the old IIBs. A local store nearby had one for a while and I’d stop in there on my breaks and abuse the hell out of it.

Combo thread has some awesome contenders. Some Rivera, Vox, Marshall, Henning, freakin Simo Plex and some Mrak action.

I knew a guy who had one. It wasn't bad, but he was trying to resell it for $1200 about 8 years after it came out. It was super dated by that point.

:hi5: At the end of the day I wouldn't need more amp than a Rivera combo. Form factor and weight of the r-series are a defnite plus and just for portability reasons I used the r55 with a 'Century Vintage'.

Just saw andvari posted one of my alltime favourite amp heads. There is no need for selling short that THD rig :love:

Great turn out guys! We've got until 3pm EST/12pm PST to get any last entries in. I had a lot of fun doing this for you guys and who knows, maybe I'll be running/organizing it again for you guys. To everyone that has participated, thanks so much! And thanks to the board in general. You make GAB the best Guitar Forum on the Interwebz.
