    Now I’ve done it. My rig is completely sorted out. I’ve no more tones to chase after. No more add-ons, accessories, research, etc. the internet is useless to me. I’m in uncharted territory and I don’t like it! Now I have to practice. I’ve no more excuses!

    I tend to think of that state as The GOOD Place.

    Oh this place is meme-rich. I’m gonna like it here.

    I once did, too. Now I have to face the fact that my gear is better than I am. Time to get down to the Henley of the matter. Time to practice.

    Would love to see pics. My "rig" is complete as well. A modeling amp and a crybaby. I don't feel like I need any thing else. But I do need a MIA Tele.

    This is it. The first full rig that’s survived a legitimate honeymoon period. ‘66 Super with some tasty pedals and a parts strat I put together. Installed the Ilich Noise canceling backplate after I artificially aged it.

    I see what you mean. I thought I was in that place once. Then I started building guitars.

    Just remember: Hendryx, EVH, SRV, and all the other big names could make a Teisco, amplified thru a cheap megaphone sound good.

    It's time to get your fingers to make the music...
