Custom Shop 2008
Les Paul Standard 1959 Historic Reissue, bought from Route 66 Classic Guitars: Miss Majic. Only modification: Removed Scratch-plate after beeing signed by Scott Gorham.
Ebony fretboard, no f-holes, 17 degrees headstock. Originally 57' classic humbuckers pictured, has now been replaced by Chrome Burstbuckers from a R8 to better match my Les Paul R9.

Based on ESP parts, 2 double Lace sensor pickups, Wilkinson by Gotoh VSVG Vintage Tremolo, Shaller locking tuners, birdseye maple neck.
Pre-owned by Jon Eberson and used on the 1986 recording Stash. I was the second owner from 1988-1990, sold it to Anders Hommerstad 1990-1996, then Ralp Loftstad used it from 1996-2012, and I finally bought it back in 2012.
The guitar had original one Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro in Bridge and a Jazz in Neck. The Neck pick-up was broken when I bought it back - but has now been repaired at Seymour Duncan in Santa Barbara by MJ.
Artist Series Stratocaster based on a 54/57 mix. Modified with Wilkinson by Gotoh VSVG Vintage Tremolo, also removed one Tone-control for better tremolo handeling and made the tone a master-tone control.
Contemporary MIJ Stratocaster Type 27-4302, 2 original single coils, modified with a Seymour Duncan JB TB in the bridge, Kahler Spyder Floyd Rose lic, Locking nut, Gotoh tuners, Maple fretboard. Added a pearl-scratch-plate instead of the original plain white plastic and replaced the white plastic on the single coils with black.

Modified the effects loop to be serial instead of paralell.
Stock speaker Celestion 12" Seventy-80 replaced with G12 Neo Creamback
Also added Red/White Grolsch Bottle Gaskets on the pot meters to make them harder to turn.
Why pay 10 times more for a US boutique amp that simulates an english classic rock sound, when you can get it all in this cabinet?

This does the works as a practice amp and may also be used on a gig.

independed of whereas you plug it direct or in a guitar amp,
