Collector Type:



Since 1972, I have bought and sold countless guitars… must be well into 700-800 instruments to date. However, most of this buying/selling is behind me now. I have a handful of keepers that work just fine. Sure, the best ones are gone, but these current axes will definitely do for the remainder of my stay.

Vega Cylinder Guitar

Favorite guitar in my collection:

My beat up 73 Les Paul Custom or my 2012 Hexomorph Volcano Telecaster

    Well, describing a guitar’s tone is pretty subjective, but I guess I’d have to say it sounds right in between a D-28 and a D-18. Its plenty loud and will cut any venue. It really is a killer.
