So today I was helping a friend and aspiring bassist get his new bass/amp off of a couple of craigslist add. One of the guys we met had an amp that made me bust out laughing. He took a little 15 watt practice amp combo, chopped it in half, put the amp part on top of a 2x10 cab and called it a half stack. It sounded ok and he said he liked to "crank it" into a fuzzy madness that sounded like it was about to catch fire.

All in all it got me wondering what other types of crazy gear my fellow UG'ers have run into
no sig for joo

BUY THAT AMP FOR $1,000,000.

I probably have the weirdest piece of gear that Ive ever seen. Its a crappy kids acoustic with the nut replaced with a pen. there is also a silver ass and balls drawn on the back.

I saw a guitar with a 35+ inch scale, the top 2 strings removed and tuned an octave lower with EXTREMELY heavy strings. I doubt that instrument will ever catch on. What a useless device.

There's a major design flaw in that 6 neck monstrosity...... the cutaways aren't deep enough to comfortably reach all the frets.

Also, there's a five string next to a four string, why not just have a five string, GUH!, the uselessness of that extra neck is ridiculous.

I've seen that picture a few times before, but I've never noticed the cabs until now. I want some.

Agreed. Although I get the feeling that thing has the capacity to drive me insane.

I'll see those multi-necked guitars and raise you one guitar boat!

I've got this wacky pedal called the "Vibrator" that will only do anything if both the knobs are turned all the way up.

All it does is chop the sound in a steady stream.

I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I thought it was a uke at first due to the neck being small, but the number of strings does suggest that it is a mandolin.

Tam,

That 9 string in the 2nd link is sexy. =D

I have an unnatural love for extended Range basses... I have a six now, and I plan on going up to 7's 8's 9's and eventually a 10.

Why?
I don't know. It just sounds like fun.
