    Gibson ES-135 with P90s
    Gibson ES-125 with P90s
    Yamaha SG1500 tuned for slide
    Taylor 750 12-string
    Olson 6-string acoustic
    Reverend Goblin with SM57 mic
    Rivera Suprema with DR. Z Airbrake and SM57 mic

    And a guitar tech to keep 'em all tuned.

      electric guitars: MIA Strat with Texas Specials and a TBX tone pot(her name is VeeJay)/ MIM Strat with TxSp and a SD Pearly Gates(NOT plus) in the bridge(her name is Ma)/ MIM Tele with Kent Armstrong Vintage Tele pickups, and a four way switch(his name is The Gunny)/ MIK Samick SG copy with Kent Armstrong PAF clones(this guitar has no name, as it belongs to my father and I use it for recording and as a backup mostly)

      I have two amps I use. my main live amp is a Marshall TSL60 through a Crate Blue Voodoo slant cab loaded with Vintage 30's. I run on the clean channel and get all my OD/distortion from stompboxes on my pedal board. I do plan on using my head's distortion in the studio for some of the lead with a TS-9 for just a BIT of color on this one tune.....now I'm rambling.....AND a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe I use for ALOT of things....and a 1x15 cab I built with a vintage Utah speaker(needs a recone)...


      what's on my pedal board: Boss TU-2 Tuner>Dunlop Crybaby Wha>Boss SD-1 Superoverdrive>Ibanez SD-9 Sonic Distortion(original, NOT RI)>Ibanez SM-7 Smash Box(EVIL distortion with a noise gate)>Boss CH-1 Super Chorus>MXR Phase 90(RI)>Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer[(RI) used for solo boost]


      acoustics: Samick six string, Epiphone 12, and I use my Dad's 72 Yamaha Small Body for things from time to time....nice guitar for studio stuff.


      comming SOOOOOON!: Voodoo Labs micro vibe or Dunlop Roto-Vibe....and I may get a Blues Jr. for practce. I am also ALWAYS on the look-out for guitars!

          You would see my only guitar, plus a very nice borrowed backup from a friend.

          Mine looks like this, except that's not me.

            I probably don't have to - the 125 and the 135 w/P90s are somewhat redundant, but the 125 responds to certain songs in a way that the 135 can't. Ditto with the 135 w/PAFs and the PRS, but they have different capabilities on certain songs that I wouldn't want to do without. The slide guitar is irreplaceable (functionally), as are the Taylor and the Olson.

            The two amps also have some overlap, but the Goblin has some nice tones I don't use on the Rivera, while the Rivera has switchable channels, which the Goblin doesn't. What's a player to do?

                If I really want to go all out, I bring two Teles, a '52 RI and a '95 tobacco burst, my Takamine 12 string and 6 string acoustics. Mostly I just use the teles.

                    Here you can see what I used a few weeks ago (I'm on the far right):


                    The strat is a MIM Deluxe Seventies Floyd Rose HSS, and the guitar on the stand with the Bigsby is a Gibson SG Deluxe from '71 or '72. The amp on the stand which I'm using is a Hot Rod Deluxe, and the one on the side for back-up is a Fender Deluxe Reverb RI.

                    The Epiphone Alleycat the guy on the left is playing is mine as well (I'm hoping he gets his Joe Pass Emporer fixed so I can use it myself). The Ampeg bass amp is also mine.

                    Here is a better pic of the strat:


                    Since this gig, I've picked up a G&L ASAT Classic semi-hollow honey maple, which I am playing primarily now, with the strat as back-up. So I can leave the more vintage guits at home.

                    No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

                    Old is the new new.

                    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

                      Usually two of the following three electrics:

                      American Strat w/Tom Anderson pups
                      Les Paul Deluxe
                      Les Paul Standard

                      Sometimes one of these electrics instead:

                      PRS McCarty Soapbar w/rosewood neck
                      1955 ES-225T
                      Ibanez lawsuit ES-175
                      mid-80's D'Aquisto (straight-ahead jazz gigs only; this is NOT a versatile guitar)

                      For an amp I use a Zinky Blue Velvet 25w. I used a Trace Elliot Trident for a long time, but it's gotten too unreliable for regular use. I also use a Blues Jr. for smaller gigs.

                      FX: George Dennis Wah, Crybaby, Q-Tron, Boss OC-2, Maxon RealTube Compressor, Ibanez TS-5, Maxon FL-9 Flanger, Maxon PT-9 Pro + Phaser, Visual Sound H2O, Danelectro Wasabi Forward/Reverse Delay, Ernie Ball Volume, Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster.

                      I use a Samson wireless system.

                          I play the Tres Cubano in a Traditional afro-Cuban Group. I know it doesn't look like much but this really is a dream set-up. the Crate Amp was rated best acoustic Amp by acoustic players magazine for many years in a row. the Fishman Pocket blender is a great acoustic pre-amp that blends sound from my sound board pick-up and the condensor mic inside my guitar. I always bring a back up guitar but I never break strings so I just retune when needed and play with my favorite guitar the whole gig.

                            2 or 3 of these:



                            Of the above guitars only 2 are not in regular rotation, the Ovation Breadwinner and the Fender Duo-Sonic.

                            Into one or two of these:







                            For my main punk rock band I usually use the Sovtek head into the Risson 4x12, but with smaller stages or smaller clubs will use the Kustom 1x15 or the DIY 2x12. For the side roots rock band it's usually the vintage Sunn head into one of thoe same cabs. The Super Reverb is kinda held in reserve.

                              Thanks! I'm in the process of growing the pedal collection. I'll add another eight or so over the next few weeks (as money permits--my car isn't behaving quite how I'd like it to right now ).
