Stratocaster #1 (aka "Minty" because of the green/blue finish). She's an American Standard Stratocaster with a 1996 Anniv. neck and a 1999 body. I needed a new stage guitar, so I built it after finding the neck. I've added a Dimarzio PAF Pro in the bridge (w/vintage style pole pieces) and a Dimarzio Area 67 in the neck. Standard American Strat pick-up in the middle.
Stratocaster #2 (aka "Baby"). I have had this 1989 American Standard since high school. She has traveled everywhere. I have an 80s Dimarzio PAF in the bridge and an HS-2 in the neck. I have also added a coil tap for both the bridge and neck pickups. Both Strat #1 and #2 have TBX tone controls. This guitar is one of the best sounding out of the bunch.
1997 Fender USA Lonestar Stratocaster in Candy Apple Red. Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker in the bridge, Texas Specials in the middle and neck positions. Made in California, but a Texas guitar, and that were it came from.
Ash body, dark rosewood fret board. Love this guitar. I used it on the track "Into the Cosmic Void" on After The Epoch.
1973 Gibson Gospel acoustic. This was my 17th year birthday present from my loving parents. Has a maple neck, sudes, and curved back, unlike the late 90s reissue. The back has a slight bowled contour. Also has an ebony fretboard. I had it refretted with Gibson jumbos.
Gibson CL-35 Deluxe (circa 1998). This is my main acoustic guitar. She has beautiful green abalone inlays around the sound hole and clover like inlays on the fret board. Bubinga back and sides. I also added an active pickup.
This is my 1993 Les Paul Classic. She has a nice flame maple top and a solid one piece mahogony back. I have upgraded her with a bone nut, era correct truss rod cover, Sprague Orange Drop caps, and Gibson Classic 57' pickups. The 1990 to early 1993 LP Classics were the best in the 1960 Classic series in my opinion.
Fender HM Strat (made in USA). This 1990 24 fret HM Strat has a stock Dimarzio pickup in the bridge and Fender single coils in the neck and middle positions. The HM series has a wider and flatter neck than on any other Fender that I've played.
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige. Made in Japan year 2000 model. Flame maple top and mahogany body. This is a well made and great sounding guitar. This guitar has the stock Dimarzio Tone Zone bridge pickup and PAF Pro neck pickup. I'm impressed with the Tone Zone pickup in this guitar - vintage PAF clarity and warmth with a nice kick in the low end!
1991 Fender Heartfield II made in Japan. Stock pick-ups. I've always loved the neck profile on this guitar.
This Peavey bass was made in Mississippi USA. I purchased it in Texas, and used in on numerous recordings. It has active pickups.
Ibanez SCA 220. One of two. This one in non-trem. Made in Japan year 2000 model. Mahogany body. Has unique 25.1" scale length. This guiter sounds great and has endless sustain that rivals the Les Paul.
Ibanez SC Classic. One of two. This one has a Fender style tremelo.
1991 Ibanez RG-550 (made in Japan). It is metallic salmon in color (not pink, really).The color was in during the spandex and Aquanet era of Rock. These MIJ Ibanez guitars are very well made--very fast neck, 24 frets, and Lo - Pro trem. SOLD!
