Can you give us a rundown of your favourite guitar and gadgets?
“My number one has always been my Fender Stratocaster. I’ve rewired it more than four times and every time it sounds great. Through thick and thin, it has survived equipment falling onto it. It comes with me to nearly every gig, if not as the main guitar, as the backup. The main gadget would have to be my overdrive pedal named the ‘Tube Zone’. Now discontinued, it always wipes my other overdrives off the board!”
