This is the guy who sends chills down my spine, whenever he touches a guitar. . . OK, I admit that Ace Frehley was the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place. But then I heard VAN HALEN I!
One day, as part of a bet with the drummer in my band, I put some money down on an Ernie Ball/Music Man EVH model. Nice guitar. I figured, "If it's good enough for Eddie, it's good enough for me." (Ironically, Ed plays a Peavey Wolfgang now, and Ernie Ball/Music Man had to take his signature off their newly renamed Axis model). (My drummer friend had to buy Ludwig Super Classics!)
My guitar is powered by a
Soldano Reverb-O-Sonic 50-watt
2x12 combo. Nice amp. It doesn't scream
like the top-of-the-line
Super Lead Overdrive
, but I like it.
Purple tolex, blue pilot lamp. Five
12AX7's, a pair of 5881's.
It can be warm, it can be
in your face if I want it

goes to eleven ! That's one
I also own a Gibson Les Paul Studio, like the one shown here, but it's white in colour.
My other gear (some of which I actually use):
Alex Lifeson of Rush
