This will be my page for my passion, the guitar

So I've decided to do a few different things here...I'll start off by listing some of my guitars, effects, and amps

Coming soon I'll post some sound clips of different combinations.

If you have a combination you'd like to hear, send me an email and I'll do it.

Remember, almost all of these things are available to bands during recording sessions.

Guitars:

Fender Squire Strat..........Japenese, early 80's w/Bill Lawrence Blade in the bridge position and the stock pickups in the neck and middle. This is the guitar I play the most.

1983 Gibson Flying V .......Custom with Bill Lawrence Blades and a "Wonder Bar" Washburn Whammy. This thing wails!!! Super speedy neck...best whammy I've ever used!

1984 Gibson Les Paul........Got it as a basket case...had all new frets put in...Bartolini's in both positions.....a classic. Very fast neck. Like playing butter. Ain't nothing like a 'Paul. One of these days I'll have someone put a nice finish on it...

Late 80's Cort Headless........."The Vile Hog".......I did the paint myself.....again a Bill Lawrence Humbucker Blade in the bridge and a Single Coil Blade in the Neck. Stock middle pickup. (The stock Cort pickups on these were actually pretty cool) This is "Mr. Attitude". I use this for all my slide playing. (Standard Tuning) It works really well as a regular guitar, also. This thing just has an edge to it that can't be described.

Late 80's Cort Headless........."Tammy".........This is the same as the Vile Hog except I put the Carvin Single coils in all 3 positions and added the Roland GK2 to drive the GR-50 synth. This is a mellower, more friendly sounding combination. Works great as a synth controller.

1967 Sivertone "Deluxe".......1 piece maple top, block inlays, Gibson made mini PAF staggered humbuckers, Bigsby.....A great axe despite the name. I was waiting for a Flamekat...but this will do the job!

Dano 59DC Reissue............What can I say? A classic for jangly rhythm parts.

Dano 59DC Reissue 12 String.......see above....but with more strings!

Dano Innuendo Baritone................Who needs a 7 string? Not Me!!!!!Tuned down to 'B'............low stuff!

1968 Dano Baby Sitar. This is part of my collection that doesn't get out much...It doesn't travel, but it has been used on some recordings!

1947 National "Grand Console" Dual 8 string lap steel. Ya need 'that' tone??? This has got it! (I have the matching amp for that "authentic" sound.)

Late 40's Gibson BR9 Lap steel. ('47-'49 model with the non-adjusting pickup )For a beginners guitar, this thing sure sounds good! It even has numbers on the frets so I never get lost! (Well, almost never.) Remember "Bad Motor Scooter"??? Zoits!!!

1978 Ibanez IC300 Iceman.........The original mahogany body......I put in the Carvin M22's way back in '78........Classy tones from a classy guitar. This is NOT the same as any other year Iceman. This is another prize that doesn't get out much.

1980 Daion custon 6/12 doubleneck acoustic guitar. Only one I've ever seen. Sure turns heads everytime I pull it out...nice tone, too!

Amps:

63 Fender Bassman...............The holy grail of tone....(In my humble opinion). I usually use it to drive a pair of '65 Silvertone 2/12 w/Jensens. A GREAT combination! Classic Rock n Roll, from clean to crunch.

1959 Fender Tweed Princeton............What a sweet amp! It has a 6 inch Oxford in it. Totally stock, a little wear on the tweed, but not bad for a 40+ year old amp. I've plugged in every guitar I own and it makes them ALL sound sooooooo good. Let me repeat-soooooooo good. Turn it up and it gets the greatest overdrive. This model even has the jack for the speaker, so I can try out some of my other vintage speakers around here...I can hardly wait to use it on some sessions!

Mid 60's Supro "Super" model 606...................I never knew that ~4 watts into a Jensen 8" could be so loud! Great tone, one of my favorites.

1962 Valco "Penncrest". This is a Supro...6973 output tubes, single 12.....a sweet amp. Goose the input level and watch out!

Leslie 225..........................Built in 20 watt amp w/6V6's. I love this thing!!! I wish it wasn't soooooo heavy!

Carvin Vintage 33 w/4/10 open back............I bought this when they first came out. Promptly got the 4/10 cabinet for it. The 12 in the combo is a little shrill for my taste, although it cuts through real good in a band setting. Unplugging the 12 and plugging in the 4/10 makes for a nice sounding, good looking (love that tweed!!!) package. Behaves differently with different guitars...always plugging in something new....finding new tones...Too bad they quit selling both these items after 2 years!

1954? Magnatone "Troubador" 112 combo.......................I think it's a '54.........doesn't matter too much. Great sound. Breaks up nicely, no sustaining feedback, but just a bunch of tone.

Early 40's Magnatone "Varsity".......................Little baby amp with a clean, clear tone.

1960's Univox..................This is a sleeper!!! Great tone (3 12AU7's, 2 6L6's) I've had this for years and keep going back to it because it sounds SO GOOD!!! I use this head into an old Ampeg 4/10 closed back cabinet to test out my stompboxes. Not to mention a great sounding recording amp.

Silvertone 1431........................Great little late 50's amp. Clean and clear, just a hint of poo at full volume.

Silvertone 1484........................Poor man's blues amp...... I've had a few of these over the years and I just cant fault them. (Except for the ???reverb???...you call that a reverb? I call it a waste of time...don't bother..........) They're cheap, they sound reasonably good (better with stompboxes) and there are plenty of them out there.

National Grand Console lap steel amplifier vintage 1947...............Has a 12 in it........never seen another one like it. Some metal head spray-painted it silver before I got it. Can be heard in the opening of "The Irony" by the "Sons of Men" on my "Stuff" page. (coming soon)

1959 Hammond M3.................Complete with the Leslie and remote reverb speaker and amp. Sweet!

Effects:

Maestro Echoplex EP3 and EP4 (Solid State).............Need I explain?

Roland RE-201 "Space Echo".....................................Lookin' for that Brian Setzer Sound?

Deltalab "Effectron Jr.".............................................Analog delay/flange/chorus. Nice warm tone.

Dano "Cool Cat"chorus.....................Pretty cool, although it goes thru batteries real fast. (And 2 of them, at that!) Stereo out is nice.

Korg AX1000G stomp box simulator.............................Haven't had it for long or recorded with it yet, but I'm hopeful.

MXR Phase 90............................................................Original 70's 'swoosh' box. It has 'that' sound!

Jim Dunlop Cry Baby.................It's not a Thomas, but it still sounds wha...wha...well.

DOD FX50...................................................................Two knob overdrive......One of my favorites.

DOD FX55...................................................................Two knob distortion....the FX50's dirtier big brother.

Ibanez SD-9 Sonic Distortion...................Who needs a Tube Screamer??? This is the real deal, a tube screamer on steroids!!! Great low end punch.

Chandler Tube Driver................The original rack mount.....Joe Satriani used one of these for parts of "Surfing with the Alien". Nice fat tube sound.

Hughes and Kettner Blues Master........................Little tweed, with direct out!

Hughes and Kettner Cream Machine.......................Little Marshall, with a direct out!

PAIA Quadrafuzz...............................Wacky unit............great at the extreme settings!

Ibanez TS-5 Soundtank...............................OK, but don't think it's a real Tube Screamer!

DOD FX90 Delay........................................You've seen 'em, heard 'em.

DOD FX35 Octaplus Octave Divider.........................Growl...thump....sputter.............

Roland GR-50 Guitar synth. I've had the 300 and the 700 series... and now this one. I think I'll stick with this one for awhile...sounds awesome through my Leslie!!!
