Started off with a peavey stage pack and it's crappy amp, upgraded to an epiphone sg and the same crappy amp, upgraded to an excel acoustic, upgraded to a martin from the 50's (it was passed down in my family) then upgraded to a fender american standard strat (with texas specials) and the same crappy amp, and then upgrade to a spider 4 line 6 15 watt amp, I've tweaked it to sound better so please don't damn me to hell for having a spider, I'm 15 I can't afford a good amp after buying my strat lol

Right now I have the Tom Delonge Stratocaster used by the guitarist of Farewell on layaway until the end of November, Purely for the reason that it's too close to my brother's birthday to justify buying anything for myself.
Oh and I'm trying to get a Crate Vintage Club and some single pedals, after I acquire the VC I'll probably sell my Crate and ME-50 to afford them haha.
So I guess my wishlist is, Crate Vintage Club 50 212, Ibanez Tube Screamer, MXR Flanger, Rocktron Banshee Talkbox.

Oh boy, semi-long list complete with commentary coming up. For those interested in just the gear it's highlighted, but there's something good at the end if you read it all.
When I was 7 my dad got us the following:
Jazmine By Takamine Acoustic
Some no name 3/4 scale guitar with an amp and speaker built into it that broke a month later
Some Yamaha HH Superstrat/shitty 10W amp combo
I mucked with them for about a little longer than it took the tiny one to break, got bored and then stored the others in my basement closet for over a decade before I decided to play for real. By then the moisture had warped the acoustic and semi corroded Yamaha gear. I got the Yamaha stuff back to working order but within 3 months I found myself in a band of other beginning musicians and it was Christmas time so I bought the following:
Danelecrto FAB line of pedals (I got the OD, Metal Dist, Echo, Flange and Chorus for myself and the Rock Dist for my then rhythm guitarist and also a Rock Distortion for my then bassist. Shit was $10 NEW, I didn't know about or care for tone back then and I figured I was getting a good deal)
Digitech Expression Factory 7 (Chiefly because it was not just 1 Wah, but 2 as well as a bunch of other things that I didn't really appreciate at the time, but love now)
A Glass Slide (which I can count on two hands the number of times I've used)
That was fine and dandy for a while until my then rhythm guitarist decided to buy a Fender Frontman 212 which then prompted my bassist to get a larger amp and my drummer to then hit his drums harder and louder. By then, I'd learned a little about good tone, but just enough to know I hadn't earned good tone yet. So still being a noob and not one to be outdone by my RG I bought:
Marshall MG 100HDFX Head
Marshall MG 410A Cabinet
Not the best of gear, but it was a Marshall stack and even if it didn't sound like a true Marshall it got me playing more. Volume wise, it also blew the Frontman out of the water. Nowadays I don't use it much except for a stage prop. I set it up and plug a dummy cable into it and then set my real rig up to my smaller amp, which I then place behind the stack and mic up.
Christmas rolled around again and my dad bought me an
and because I knew he was getting me it and because I didnt want him playing either my G-400 OR the new Casino I bought HIM a
Fender '69 Thinline Telecaster reissue
which he loves. Unfortunately for him he doesn't get to play it often due to work and stuff so I can pick it up and use it pretty much whenever I want. That said it's his and as it's not my first choice for the 'Fender tone' I usually don't touch it. But it is available.
Using some leftover xmas cash I upgraded the pickups in my G-400 to Gibson Burstbuckers and since then have referred to it as proper SG.
Over the following summer I built my
Samba Firefly with Seymour Duncan P-Rails
which is basically a PRS knockoff with a Floyd Rose. Fun project. Learned a lot about guitars, gear, luthiery, and myself. You can find the build log in my sig. Probably wont be repeating the experience but a lot of the gear on my dream list has to be custom made and DIY is a lot cheaper than going to a custom shop so we'll see.
Around the same time I sold the Yamaha stuff to a coworker with small hands. One of the key factors of me buying the G-400 was that the neck on the Yamaha was way to thin and narrow for me to use. My dad bought it when I was a kid because the salesperson said the tinier neck would be better for my then child sized hands, but at 19 my hands were less then petite anymore. When my more then petite coworker said she wanted to get into guitar I practically gave her the Yamaha guitar and amp. I took the meager amount of money I got and put it towards a
Boss RC-20 Loop Station
at the suggestion of my guitar teacher. He figured that since I didn't have any way to record myself at the time, I should get a looper so that I could critically listen to my playing and hear where I need to work on something. It also has the added benefit that I can record a rhythm track and then work on my lead lines over it. In terms of developing my playing it was the best investment I've yet to make.
Winter comes again and now I'm transferring from Community College to a legitimate school come January thus ending my first band and opening the social possibilities of finding a new band. Not having the room for the stack, not wanting to be embarrassed in front of 'real' musicians with the MG, 3 years of chop building, increased confidence in my abilities, a semi-developed ear for tone and Christmas yield a
Marshall Class 5
Vox AC30 AMPlug
What can I say? I have a thing for gold knobs and curly script. Also, vintage British tone. The amp allowed me to actually jam at open mic nights with other musicians without having to worry about my gear's tone and I could then focus on making my tone sound good through my playing. As such I totally blame my amp for finding me in a new band right now. The AMPlug made practicing at night while my roommate slept possible and thus allowed us not to want to kill each other.
The next two years go by pretty quick so I'm just gonna list the rest here in the order I got them:
Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron +
ModTone Chromatic Tuner Pedal
Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker
Line 6 Echo Park
The best part about that Echo Park is that I literally just got it a few days ago as a belated birthday present. Thing kicks a serious amount of ass. Been meaning to make a NPD thread about it but I'm waiting to try it out in a band setting before writing up a review. But with the Loop Station and some internet backing tracks it sounds pretty epic. I've tried a few other Digital Delays before deciding that this was the one I wanted and I gotta say, it has the most usable Reverse delay out there. Sure it's a bit gimmicky and not something I'll use on every song, but it can fit into my band's sound and IMO it does it better than others.
And that's all she wrote for now. We'll see what this Christmas brings me. I'm graduating so I'm hoping I can finegal my parents into a JTM-45 clone or a real AC30 so I don't have to lug the MG stack AND the Class 5 around any more. If you've read this far you're a fool. But you also get a cookie and that's nice too.
Epiphone G-400 w/ Gibson Burstbuckers
Marshall Class 5
Boss RC-20 Loop Station
DigiTech Expression Factory 7
EH Q-Tron +
EH Big Muff Pi w/ Tone Wicker
Line 6 Echo Park
My PRS with SD P-Rails Build

I'm amazed at how much gear some people have, and even more amazed when some of those people end there lists with "when I graduate", I find it rather interesting
bought for me:
Squier Affinity Strat
bought by me:
Peavey 6505 212
Schecter C1 Hellraiser
Schecter C1 Blackjack ATX FR
given to me:
some shitty Ibanez something-or-other
I'm hoping to purchase a Peavey 6505+ head and cab over the next few years, if my bank balance allows me, but most likely not
Modest I know, but it does the trick

Alright let's see.
When I was like 12, I was given my first acoustic, an old MANN Acoustic, it was beaten all to hell, the bridge was lifted off the body, it was just a pile of shit.
x-mas of 07 - got my first electric (Behringer MetAlien starter pack) It actually wasn't all THAT bad, the amp was garbage but the guitar although bad, I've played worse. I've since sold it along with the amp.
x-mas 08 - got my first quality acoustic from my grandfather, a nice discontinued Fender.
Got my Jackson Kelly 3rd hand as a grading present.
x-mas 09 - got my roland cube 30x (selling)
I was given a classical guitar from my uncle before he shipped out.
I was given a boss metal zone for a gift (sold it)
I was also given a dunlop cry baby.
I was also given a jay turser strat because the girl who had it never ever used it. (sold it)
I bought my Sammick Bass and amp with summer job money, and also bought the second series of JS jacksons (JS32 Rhoads) (Sold it to buy another guitar)
And I got my Bugera 333xl half stack from all of my family members. I bought all my recording stuff myself.

2008 - 12 Years old (not far off 13, only a couple of months away) First guitar and amp...
Epiphone G400 - Great guitar for a beginner, quite a thin neck and the pickups can get muddy, but still, with a couple of upgrades it'll be a useful guitar to have for alternate tunings. The only guitar I had for 3-4 years and got a lot of hours on it, will never be sold.
Line6 Spider III 30w Combo - To be honest, it's not great but hey, it's an amp and it makes sound. Yes, it does sound quite digital at times but it gets you there and for practice amp it'll do, can be made to sound decent with time and I'll keep it until it no longer works.
2011 - Been playing for 3 years and advanced quickly, know what I want and like, saved the money for this, 16 years old when I got this guitar.
Gibson Les Paul Custom 68RI - Amazing, amazing guitar! The neck fits like a glove, the action is low and slick, bends are effortless. Sustains for days, neck pickup is smooth and great and the brdige can really add some punch and make it scream. Great for everything from Jazz to covering Metallica and Dream Theatre! Hold tuning well, sounds great, especially through a Marshall halfstack (JVM410H) Wouldn't trade for the world. My first Gibson and definitely one the best guitars I've played, well worth it.
Next year, it's likely that I'll be getting a new amp, probably a half stack with a Marshall head of some kind (JCM800, Vintage Modern or JVM)
You gotta move

Ok...lets see the biggest succession of terrible gear you have ever seen :P
(1)Local Luthier-built classical guitar.....1st guitar, it sucked, I smashed it, even though I'm the type to freak about chipping any of the other guitars
(2) "Elevation" black strat copy....piece of crap...it wasn't even made of wood...however, it made me a tiny profit :L
(3) Roland Cube 15x....oh god how much I hated that amp...
(4) Epiphone les paul std...wish I didn't get that neck injury, it was a dependable guitar
(5) Crate gt1200h and matching cab...decent set up for metal, one trick pony unfortunatly
(6) Marshall Guv'nor deluxe 2..it just gave up on me one day..have no idea how to fix it
(7) Crate vt212...great amp..bought it very cheap..the effects are crap though :L
(8) Gibson Melody Maker...I adore this guitar...it's still my main axe..perfect for my small hands
(9) Vintage Telecaster v2...cool guitar, great for crunchy rock sounds
(10) Sx st57 strat...sounds great...needs better tuners and bridge though...but the core sound is impressive for a 50 euro guitar (worth more, got it in a closing down sale)
(11) Karina accoustic...never came across them before...but it's a beautiful guitar...difficult to play though (small hands)
(12) sx dg160..bought in another closing down sale for half nothing..great workhorse guitar..i bring it with me when I'm teaching my students
(13) Takamine eg540 (i think...can't be arsed going upstairs and checking :L)... Fantastic guitar, minimal faults..sounds orgasmic plugged in
I need to invest in some pedals next...and a new amp eventualy..
