    You can never trust the name on the headstock of any of Billy's stage guitars.

    Bolin has been building them for years now, no matter what the headstock says.

    Bolin has a large collection of Tokai's in his shop that belong to an artist he wouldn't disclose.

    Billy does use Love Rocks, and why not? They're great LP clones. I want one. They come up on Ebay all the time, but the prices are skyrocketing lately.

    Has Billy retired Pearly Gates? I would if I were him. That guitar is too valuable to haul around on tour. I can't imagine what would happen if it was stolen.

    Yes. I used to live there and stopped in frequently pretending my guitar needed work.

    Billy is easily one of my favorite guitarists and probably the biggest influence on my own playing, along with Jimmy Page.
