A great guitar for a real surf sound. Bright and shiny.(click here) Played through a Vox AC 30 amplifier it has a bit of a British invasion tone (click here).
THE LES PAUL CUSTOM(click here)
With the Humbucker pickups this guitar has a much beefier sound. Twangy.(click here) Although not a Gretsch 6120, it's good for the Duane Eddy Style. Especially on the lower strings.(click here)
THE KRAMER PACER(click here)
When played cleanly, this guitar gives a softer and rounder tone. Very much like the original Shadows. Even though it is actually a heavy metal guitar usually played at high levels with much distortion.(click here)
THE GIBSON HUMMINGBIRD ACOUSTIC GUITAR (click here)
A good strumming acoustic sound. The large body gives a nice full tone to the chords.I am always trying, but never quite succeeding, to get that John Lennon booming acoustic sound of the Beatle records.(click here)
THE FENDER PRECISION BASS (click here)
Back in the 50s and 60s, when people asked for an electric bass (then, they had a choice), this was the one they meant.(click here)
Let's not forget the Fender Jazzmaster and Jaguar guitars(click here)
