This is the inside of my booth at Le Reve. After many years my Parker Fly is dying and I've had to retired it. Meet Ginger, it's replacement! This is a brand new 2014 Washburn Parallaxe guitar that is loaded! It now lives at Le Reve ( and my studio) and handles all the Eb parts in the show!

I'm so proud to be playing a Bob Holo guitar with the Hot Club of Las Vegas. Vegas' climate is hard on any acoustic guitar and this guitar is stable with tone for days!

It was nerve wracking playing in front of Brian May! But it was awesome to hang with him afterwards and thank him for his musical influence on my career!

NAMM
NAMM

I've been a clinician for US Music Corp (Washburn, Randall, etc.) for many years and one of the perks was getting to meet and hang out with rock stars. Hanging with Paul Stanley turned out to be a yearly NAMM event. What a nice guy and truly a great guitarist! Mahalo to Larry English pictured here for making it all happen!

Celebration for Jeff Ray Concert

It was an honor to contribute to this celebration concert for an amazing guitarist Jeff Ray. His favorite band was Rush so the Amazing Wannabees (with Bella Strings) played YYZ for him.

If you know me all my guitars have female names. This Washburn N6 is called "Pammy Andy." I've worked with her make up artist before in other shows, and she knew my guitar was named Pammy Andy... so I was invited to meet her and have the axe signed!!!

Used my Randall NBKING100 head thru the studio's 4x12 cab and also a killer handwired Vox! BTW the producers turned me up and it was probably the loudest I've ever played in a session!

Washburn guitars VP Larry English asked to me sign with Washburn in the fall of 2001. What a dream for any guitarist! I officially signed in 2002 as I had to wait for this NX6 to finish it's initial produciton. Part of my contract agreement was to send an artist pic for their file. I never had to do an artist pic, and actually took a long while to get one to them!
