Any guitar players in the building?

Any of you guys guitar players?

Seems like a lot of motorcycle riders are also into guitars...

Who else thinks it would be cool to have a guitar mount on their motorcycle to bring a guitar with for the ride?

Maybe a built in amp on the bike?

I swear Ive seen something like this in the custom bike world.

OCC built a Peavy bike I believe.

Lots of people play guitar

Funny, I was just PMing you to say HI, Mario.

I play a little...but mostly collect cool gear. Lately I've been building tube amps, and restoring/repairing some vintage amps.

I dont recall the Peavey bike. I'll have to check that out.

The mount idea probably makes the most sense on a cruiser....

Thanks. I bought those, fixed them, and sold them all last year. Some I really miss, some not so much.

I don't recall. I didn't own that one for very long. After I put a bone nut and saddle on it that thing sounded great.

My gallery is really out of date, but it shows some of the gear I've had in the past 10 years.

http://lonelyraven.zenfolio.com/f1004703269

Currently I have two late 60's silverface Super Reverbs I'm restoring

'54 Alamo (Texas made amp similar to a Tweed Champ)
'59 Magnatone 280 like Buddy Holly used just be fore died
'62 Magnatone 260A made here in Chicago under the Twilighter name
Champ clone made from parts rescued from a gutted '63 Blackface Champ
I have a couple 80's vintage Laney heads that were basically modded JCM 800s

The rest are custom cabinets, boutique amps, and stuff I'm cobbling together from parts. I have a Peters Dual Channel that is a one of a kind heavy metal amp, two Tweed Deluxe Chassis I'm building up for myself, another Super Reverb I'm building up from scratch, Marshall TMB 18 watt I'm fixing someone else's sloppy work, and I'm getting good at building Trainwreck amps. This one I built and sold a while back...I even laser engraved the logos and faceplate myself, back when I had access to a laser engraver at work.

I don't recommend riding a motorcycle and carrying a guitar at the same time; however, if you must, put your axe in a gig bag and strap it to your back.

If I remember correctly, that's what Prince did in Purple Rain.

I have an RG770 equipped with a Dimarizio evolution in the bridge and D activator in the neck, and an RG1550 with the standard Ibz v7 and v8 set. Only time it gets really muddy is when the gain and bass are cranked. I have it running through an MXR 10 band equalizer which smooths a lot of it out.
Nothing beat the sound of my les paul through the set up, but I could not keep the guitar as the 50's neck was way too fat for my tastes.

Yeah I really liked that amp also. Really nice vintage tone after I swapped the speaker and cleaned it up. It was mint too. That Silvertone amp in the archive was also really nice.
