Gear Spotlight - Ibanez FR7 Custom

So after looking at this pile of guitars I have right next to me, I thought about all of the guitars that I have and how I never told their backstories. Admittedly, I’ve been lacking with the Gear Spotlight posts. Since we’re inside until who the hell knows when, I put together a shitload of them. First up is an obvious favorite of mine. My FR Custom from the LA Custom Shop. The story behind this guitar is kind of weird but I hope you like it! In 2017, Ibanez came out with their first 7 string FR. I had been asking for one forever. So when Mike O and the team finally came through and made it a production...

Gear Spotlight - Ibanez FRIX7FEAH

  As most of you know, I’m a huge fan of the Ibanez FR shape. Tele style bodies have always been at the top of my list of body shapes since I could remember. When I signed on with Ibanez, I loved the shape but they never offered them in 7 string. After getting my first version of this FR, my life was changed. I knew I wanted it to be my main stay.  Ibanez knocked it out of the park by refinishing the first FRIX I got and replacing the neck with a Prestige Wizard-7. By now, you’ve all seen that absolute beauty of a guitar. Since receiving that, I’ts been my main Drop A guitar while my LACS...

Gear Spotlight - Dunlop Crybaby From Hell

 16 years ago, December of 2003, I was a 14 year old kid with only hopes and dreams to once play in a band and go on tour.  I had heard that Dimebag Darrel was doing an autograph signing at Sam Ash in Carle Place, NY. Of course being a huge Pantera fan, I HAD to go. Showing up at about 11am, my Dad and I waited outside in the freezing cold for almost 8 hours. Finally a black limo shows up and out steps Dime, sporting his BLS vest and Camo shorts. As I patiently waited, I hear screaming coming from inside. The first kid on line was given a Crybaby from Hell. Obviously I was a little jealous but I was...

Gear Spotlight - 1996 Les Paul Studio

The year was 2003. I was 14 years old and little did I know, the next couple of years would shape my life as a musician. I had been taking lessons for about 3 years at this point at a local music shop. They didn't have much as far as instruments but my teachers were great and that's all I needed. They usually stocked beginner guitars and starter packs. It was way easier and faster to move that stuff as a business than a $2k+ LP Custom. So when they got cool gear in, I would drool over it. Every Friday I had lessons so I knew what was on their walls at all times. At the time, I only...
