“I have always been spoiled as far as gear is concerned”
After my back surgery I had trouble playing most electric guitars because of the weight factor. I already owned a PRS Hollow Body so I gravitated towards that. It is the only guitar I can comfortably play for practice and use at rehearsals for a long periods of time. Live, I use PRS Semi-Hollow Bodies. The neck and feel is similar to the Hollow Body. I use three Semi-Hollow Bodies; 1. Tuned standard, 2. Tuned Dropped D and 3. Tuned B to B. I’ve looked for that sound all of my life. Being Semi Hollow and having those 57/08 pickups no other guitar came close in sound and feel and I was hooked. Most of my other guitars are for sale

MESA BOOGIE AMPLIFIERS I switched to Mesa Boogie early in my playing career and have used nothing else since. I have strayed a few times (although the honeymoon periods were never long) but I always came back to Boogie.
