Number 8 is a fond expression that some here know about. I'll leave it at that. I play an Ibanez Jem7DBK, an Ibanez UV7PWH Universe, an Ibanez UV777GR Universe,a Fender Jeff Beck Strat(old style with 4 Lace Sensors), a Floyd Rose Discovery series with extensive mods, EMG S, S, 81 with a low voltage sensor, sort of a fun project to make a number 8 for real, the Speedloader is too damn cool, and an Ovation acoustic thingy. I'm a doddering old fool so forgive my opinions. My amps/preamps are, Carvin VL212 Legacy 100 watter, Digitech 2120 Digitech 2101 Rocktron Chameleon Randall RM4 Effects are as follows, Digitech Whammy 2 Morley Bad Horsie Morley Little Alligator Boss DS-1 Boss DD5 Boss CE5 and some other junk. Nice to be here!
