    on smooth jazz for a while to establish myself as an artist...but not any more and
    I think all of my fans will be very pleased to see my other side .

Guitars Amps and More

Suhr Modern 7 Strings

Once you go 7 strings you never go back ha... I've tried 7 strings guitar 4 years ago and it blow my mind, opened up a whole new creative dimension in me, "Addictive Substance" Album is basically based on 7 string guitars.

Suhr Modern 7 Strings

Having one 7 string guitar was a bit scary considering all my tunes were composed and based on it, so I bought another one!

1971 Fender Stratocaster

Great Vintage vibe and great guitar.

Not really using it for my project but as a side work and recording session it sounds great.

G&L ASAT 1989

Great sounding tel vibe guitar even though it has its own voicing.

Again not really playing on it but its great for side projects.

1972 GIBSON ES-335

It was my mine guitar for the two jazz CDs and num-res recording session definitely a keeper. 


My favorite part of equipment...pedal board.

Pedals change from time to time but these set up is with me for a while, can cover a lot of projects. 

JCM 2000 Marshall

Second hand tons of repairs but still the best amp out there. Big and wide sound

TSL 2000 Marshall

Same as his brother and slightly different voicing, great as well

212 Mesa CAB

One day I will try Marshall Cab as well but this one did the job really well on my CD's
