    I saw a video of him playing a Chapman brand guitar, but cant find it.

    Here is one of him playing with Sammy Hagar.

    Nice guy too. I met him on the street in downtown Nashville and he seemed humbled that someone recognized him.

    Johnny and his wife are the absolute nicest people I've met. Met him at PRS a few years ago. Great guy. Turns into a beast when he has a guitar in his hands!

    Tell you one thing...if you give Johnny some gear, he's going to do his best to get your name out there. He needs to get a Nascar-style shirt with all his sponsor's patches on it.

    Haha yeah, he's really pimping his stuff hard. What an amazing guitarist he is. Seems like the sweetest guy ever.
    I wish he could put some of that effort into shrinking a good bit, I swear I'm nervous he's going to drop dead from a heart attack in every video I see him.

    It looks like he's trying. Looks like he's wearing a Misfit fitness tracker on his wrist. Although he probably would have mentioned it if he was. Unless he had to pay for it!

    Nailing that stuff on a Tele. Who else can do that on a fixed bridge guitar?

    He is amazing with country licks also for those who don't know.

    I can't think of another guitar player that is as phenomenal in such diverse styles.
