Hey fello 6 stringers!! My name is Mike , avid guitar player... I've been playing or 20 yrs, I own 12 electrics, 4 acoustics,and I use twin marshalls for amps. I bought Kiss Alive in the fourth grade, and knew my calling. It wasn't until I heard Eruption that I really became interested, and Eddie was my biggest influence for a long time. I like almost all styles of the instrument and playing guitar has greatly enriched my life. My current band is tooling up and we should be out there soon!!!
First gutar I ever bought was a Memphis Les Paul,n I wish I still had it! First amp was an old P.V. Renown great beginner amp! Then I got real... here's what I am currently using: Washburn A-10v American, (great axe, my parents freaked when I spent a grand at 15 yrs of age), Ibanez rg series w/ Seymore Invader, Floyd rose, Charvel Model 2 Emg loaded, Floyd/Jackson bridge,painted it myself, killer axe!!!,Jackson Reverse head stock with a Kramer body emg's Floyd Rose painted this one too,Jackson Soloist, my pride n joy, you couldn't ask for a better guitar right outta the box!!!,Ibanez Randy Rhoads V copy, plays alright The guys in my band like it alot! Black Explorer, always wanted an Exlporer, feels awesome sounds killer, a little heavy! Schecter 7 string, strat style, twin hummers floyd bridge, great guitar,... you wanna talk chunk??? My acoustics are: Guild model D-15n big body cost$1500 and worth every single penny, I can't say enough about it, Ovation 12 srting, a friend had it laying around and she GAVE it too me cheap! Carlos classical a free-bee from a friend who took a couple lessons then stuck it in the attic for yrs!!!I use a Digitech Twin Tube currently and am real happy with it, I also have Gsp-21 legend, Roland GP-8, Gp-16,Ada Mp-1, ME-5 etc... My outboard gear consists of: Dunlop Wah, Ross distortion , Boss flanger,chorus, harmonizer,Auto Wah, and a homemade Voice box.I run all that( not all at the same time of course) through Twin JCM 800 Master Volumes, one vintage cab with 30 watt Celestions, Two 1960's w/ 75 watt celestions, and one 1960A with 65 watt celestions, are you jealous?!?!:)
