Default One guitar, one amp?

There's been a couple of threads recently on here, like what one guitar would you keep etc. Thought I'd throw my own twist on it.

What would be your desert island rig? Pick one guitar and one amp that you think would keep you happy in your solitude.

Mine would be a Stratocaster and a Bassman, specifically the late fifties 5F6-A model. Beautiful cleans, one of the best rock n' roll distorted tones ever, and with no neighbors I'd be free to turn it up as far as it needs.

Easy. My highly modded Epi VJ and my also-highly modded Oz$65 hock shop Peavey. I would also want a reverb and a compressor.

After a 3 year hiatus from live performing my guitar/amp acquisitions had dwindled and I was left with less than the basics, but I've been back for a while now and have acquired new weaponry that serves me well. They are still pretty basic, but my MIM Telecaster and Fender Super Champ X2 handle everything I need, and then some. I really can't say enough good things about either.

My Stratocaster through a Fender Deluxe Reverb. (Or just about any other Fender amp using a clean channel).

Guitar is easy for me as I (currently) only have one . The amp (I have 2 completely different) is a tough choice .

The Supro Titan great sound, simple, and not much to go wrong
The Mesa Lonestar Special great sound and a large palette of analog tonal variety , but more to go wrong



It's really a toss up But I think I would take

This

Sure wish I could figure out how to post a picture. If I could, part of the picture would be my Bugger V22 just like Martin Maniacs.

For the guitar, if I get a magic wand to produce the guitar, it would be a mint fifties Les Paul. Without the magic wand I would settle on my lowly Les Paul Tribute.

I haven't played enough amps to know any better so I'm not sure, if we are talking something other than my goofy Peavey. Guitar is easy. My Reverend Double Agent is all I'd ever need.

AGF does not host images on the Forum itself .....so you cannot post an image directly to AGF from your computer . You have to use some kind of third party photo hosting site and particular photo address or code .

A number of image hosting sites are free, with very simple quick registration. I use and recommend "Imgur".

Once you have the photo uploaded to the site on your image page ( simple drag and drop from your desktop ) you just click on the photo select size (if you have not pre sized it ) and in 'Imgur" click on the BBCode and the just click paste in the AGF reply box .... easy peasy....


Like this (notice how I cleverly snuck in 3 amps )

Electric:

My 1960 Harmony Meteor w/Bigsby and my '72 Fender Deluxe Reverb.

If I was allowed to bring just one pedal it would be my BOSS RV-3 Digital Reverb/Delay.


Acoustic:

My 2011 Collings D2H and my Fishman Loudbox Performer. Pedal would be the same BOSS RV-3 Digital Reverb/Delay.
