Guitar/Bass Rigs Through the Years
« on: December 07, 2014, 05:36:19 PM »
I'm always looking for more pictures and information about the gear that the band has used over the years. Let me know if you have any questions or want any pics. Please add to the thread if you know any more!!

Linde
Guitars:
Live
+ '90s Gibson SG Standard (Dark Heritage Cherry)
Tuning machines changed to Grover keystone tuners.

+ '90s Gibson SG Standard (Light Heritage Cherry)
Tuning machines changed to Grover keystone tuners.
Buzz Feiten tuning system installed.

+ '90s Gibson SG Standard (Light Heritage Cherry)
Covered in Padre Pio stickers and possibly refinished to his 1st white one [?].

+ '90s Gibson SG Standard (Black)
Covered in stickers and burned severely prior to Rock am Ring 2001.
Another prime candidate for refinishing.

+ '90s Gibson SG Standard (White)
White SG Standards were never made, and the first appearances of the white
SG at Tavastia in 2003 had the Padre Pio stickers on the pickguard, which leads
me to believe he simply refinished one of his guitars.)

+ '00s Gibson SG Standard (White)
He has multiple of this one.
Some have Grover tuners.
Some have Buzz Feiten installed.
Seymour Duncan bridge pickups, either SH-4 or SH-5.
For a while one had a Hipshot D-Tuner with Schaller style tuning machine.

+ '96 Gibson SG Special (Faded Brown)
Sold through eBay for charity 'Rock Against Suicide'.

+ '00s Gibson SG Special (Dark Walnut)

What date/venue is this? And what song? Changing a guitar is during a show is pretty rare from Linde (except if the guitars are in different tuning)

Good that he's got a backup guitar :D I've never seen this SG before. I'd like to see one of the red SG's on the stage again, they're cool. I found this old picture from the old heartagram.com. It shows the guitars/basses from the Semifinal Club in 2003, and there are those 3 red SG's and 2 of Mige's basses too. The pic is pretty small though.

The black one turned into the monstrosity from the 2001/2002 shows. He covered it in stickers, then burnt it and Mige's bass with a torch. That's why in the videos from Rock Am Ring '01 you can see the neck is still black, but the body is burnt down to the wood.

So Danny from HIM Norway send me photo of Linde's pedalboard what he used for Tour of Middle Aged and as Kimmo confirmed so you can added Mad Professor PCB Evolution Pedal
But what is a mystery for me is black pedal with one knob in a middle


EDIT: Black pedal with one knob is ISP Decimator II

Very cool. I'll have to watch it more closely to find the Roger Mayer pedal. It's pretty cool seeing the weird portrait of Padre Pio way back in '01.
