Metal Setup:
DBZ Bird Of Prey White with gold hardware (including pickup covers on the emgs)
Backup PRS SE Torero
A 7 string, Music Man JP Signature (another for backup)

I'd probably say Framus Dragon Top but i'm not sure on what head i'd like
probably would go with a framus 4x12 loaded with V30's \m/

My wah pedal (90's Mr. Crybaby)
Digitech whammy
Some mxr chorus or something some chorus that sounds awesome distorted lol

a Funk setup too!
My G&L ASAT classic (maple neck blonde stain finish)
Probably another for backup
A 60's Arctic white fender strat with a maple fretboard + neck

Vox AC30(vintage classic one)
Or maybe a marshall class 5

The same wah pedal as in my metal setup
A chorus which is good at light dabs of chorus.

A lot of people complain about these sort of threads, but I love 'em. Especially when they're bumped old ones, it's great to see how my tastes have changed!

Guitars -

Godin Progression - In Trans Caramel with a Maple fretboard, other than that all stock.
Godin Progression - In Vintage Burst with a Rosewood fretboard, Bareknuckle Irish Tour pickups.
Ibanez JEM7BSB - All stock.

Amps -

Cornford Roadhouse 30 combo.
Cornford Hellcat combo (most likely combo due to ease but possibly I'd get it as head/cab).

Effects -

Flynn Amps Rory Gallagher Hawkbooster.
Maxon VOP-9
Eventide Timefactor
Eventide Modfactor
J.A.C. Jfet Audio Compression
Ernie Ball Volume Pedal
Morley Bad Horsie II Wah.

I think that's all I'd need in the pedal department.
This is fairly realistically speaking also, so I haven't opted for "First strat ever made evearrarar" sorta stuff.
Though this has made me realise that my dream rig is a mash of Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan, Rory Gallagher and Dave Weiner.
Peter Gusmano's album in which all proceeds support Project ALS.

Without Deviation from the norm, 'progress' is not possible. - Frank Zappa
