GUITARS  //  EQUIPMENT

My studio is comprised of an iMAC g5 QUADCORE computer. I record using a MOTU DP7 DAW.

The system is augmented with numerous plug-ins

I mostly use my two Fernandes guitars for recording - both are equipped with the “Sustainer System”

The Les Paul model has the regular FS101 sustainer with the  natural and harmonic modes while the

“Revolver Classic” (looks a bit like a cross between a Strat and a Telecaster) has a 3 way sustainer switch

with the middle being the mix mode of the natural and harmonic modes together! This guitar also has a coil

switch achieving a very good coil pickup sound.

I love these guitars - amazing play-ability and feel. Steve Hackett is the reason I fell in love with Fernandes!
