I found a solution where I can bring along one guitar and have my choice of tunings and pickup types. What do you think

Grrrr, why can't I get a picture to show up...oh well.

Yes, because everybody knows that makes perfect sense when playing for a bunch of drunks at the local pub.

I use a wireless, and *always* carry spare cables. The batteries in my wireless died during the last set last gig, and the bass players cable took a dump altogether.. Definitely appreciated the spare cables.

You know, when I saw Cheap Trick a few years ago, Rick played that for all of about 5 minutes... one song! Lol! Definitely a show piece, not something you wanna wear all night!

Anyway, back in my gigging days I was broke and only owned two guitars - so that's what I took. A Strat and Tele.

These days more toys. I'd probably carry 4 or 5 - depending on the gig. What I'd really like to do is run my stereo amp rig for a gig. But lugging 70lb amps is a serious PITA! One is bad enough... two could 'effing kill ya!

I take 2 purely for the different pups. Strat for cleans PRS for distortion. My tuner mutes the sound so switch that on when changing guitars for a quick and silent change over.

I thought of a splitter having each guitar constantly plugged in but too much risk of leads getting tiedup or worse tripping over a lead which in turn pulls over your not in use guitar .

My strat has a humbucker in the bridge and prs has a coil tap so I could play anyone of them in any song just in case a string goes.

Back when I had the Semihollowbody, I would have 3 but now I just use 2, my Vintage VRS's. I alternate the black and gold for gigs so they each get a look in. Having 2 guitars which are almost the same means its a more consistent playing experience for me.

If we ever have to play in any other tuning bar E standard or drop D I'd probably use the Tremonti SE as well (set up for E flat).

The last gigging cover band I was in I played slide on like 3 songs - kept an Epiphone LP Jr (my cheapest guitar) setup with thick strings, high action, and tuned to Open E for those songs - not usually right on the stage but on a stand close by whenever possible.

My main axe is my Strat, but I kept my Les Paul right behind me as well in case of a string break. So for that band I showed up with 3 guitars every time.

Better watch out, the Airia Pro II may not take too kindly to being relegated to standby duties .

The Adrian Smith model is just awesome. I've always been partial to maple fretbaords both for look and feel!
