So yep, sold a bunch of stuff recently & so it was time for my reward.
Picked up a Schecter Chris Garza Telecaster 7-string. I was in need of a hardtail 7 and a 7-string with the body woods of a les paul in a tele format was too much to resist. Plays great.
Next, I've been thinking about building a small, gig & travel friendly mini-rig of doom. I keep hearing how the Line 6 POD HD500 is basically a poor man's axefx, so I figured "what the hell." I've owned an axefx, so I may as well check one of these out too. I still wanted to incorporate tubes, so I picked up the Egnater Rebel 20. It's a great head on its own, so I can use it for practice & for gigs, I could use the clean headroom of the poweramp section by running the HD500 into the FX return. That's the thought process, anyway. Allen (Dendroaspis) says he loves his "POD into Rebel 30" rig, so I have high hopes.
Anyway, time to plug it all in & give it a go. Here's some shitty camera phone pics. I'll take some better ones when I'm not in a hurry to play.
I thought you were wanting an engl or diezel?
