Fender Hot Rodded American Fat Strat Texas Special

Fat Strat

Purchased at George’s music – my main guitar. Maple neck, 22 frets, rear humbucker. A fast, easy to play neck, decent action, and versatile tone. Just a killer guitar.

Fender Deluxe 112 Plus

My main amp. It’s a 94 wattRMS, 33lb. combo. It’s size is deceiving. Very, very, very loud for combo. Bright and sweet clean tone, heavy distortion. This amp is so loud I have yet to play it past 6. Never had to, even up against others playing with Marshall stacks. In fact, the thought kinda scares me.

The Boss BR-532


My 4-track digital recorder, purchased at Sam-Ash. Versatile multi-tracker for personal recording. It does not seem suited for band recording purposes (not enough simultaneous inputs), but is more then satisfactory for recording one instrument and mic at a time. People buying this mistakenly think it’s included “Rhythm Guide” is a substitute for a drum machine. Take it from me – it’s not. Singer songwriters – this is a great composition tool for you.
