What is the worst setup you have ever seen or used?
A friend of mine (who isn't exactly the best guitar player, but that was years ago last I played with him) has a Spider 15W and a Gibson SG Standard
#2
I wouldn't say that's a crap setup, actually. I find I play better on more expensive guitars (unfortunately for me ); and the Spiders are decent practice amps.

How is a gibson SG a bad setup? Worse would be like a spider with an ibanez gio...

We all saw it

We all pointed and laughed

We all secretly wished we could afford it

The worst I've ever owned was a Squier Bullet Special with a Drive amp (this was when I first started).
#10
lotus strat through a marshal mg10. good god. but then i "upgraded" to a drive 20w. it sounded ****ing disgusting
#11
Maybe one of those £50 packages you can get from Argos/ASDA/Wal Mart (depending on what country you're in).
#12
I've owned the (un) holy trifecta of amps: Squier Strat/Fender Frontman, Squier Strat/Digitech RP80/Marshall MG, and a Charvel C391 and Squier Strat/Line 6 Spider II. Sad thing is each was an upgrade
#13

Oooh, to be honest, I can't think of one, I've played through many bad rigs but, along with not being able ot have a "best", you can also never have a "worst".

Static X's setup



first act set ups basically are the worst.

that is definitely the worst because it wouldn't really even work, because it would kill the sound once it reaches the Boss DS-1 cranked to 10/10/10 on the settings - because its plugged in backwards. That guy also set it up as a "horizontal stack" but didn't like the sound as much, said those FANCY PEDALS would give him good sound, and thought his tone would sound like Dimebag smiling down from the heavens if he put dimebuckers in his tele. Worst. Setup. Ever.
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.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.
