What kind of guitar does Gainster use for clips?

The guy seems to have the knack for making anything sound good, but I've always had trouble getting that controlled feedback going w/my guitars- unless I'm playing very, very loud.

Be nice to know the amps used as well.

thanks,

I think that on some it's a PRS with buckers and on others, a Strat type single coil guitar. Great guy! :BluesBros

For the controlled feedback you can turn up the gain on your amp or pedals quite a bit and roll back the volume on your guitar, going up slightly til you find the spot where it will work. I do this but also use a wah in the heel position to control it. I'm sure Mitch doesn't have to work nearly this hard to get that sound but I don't know how he does it.

PRS! Yes, I've got a video w/David Grissom where he gets that great sounding feedback anytime he wants w/a goldtop PRS into a TC booster/Matchless.

Knew it was some kinda solidbody humbucker guitar, but my only HBs are FilterTrons on a semi-hollow. The feedback I get isn't pretty..

Thanks guys.

I asked him this once, he said it was a gold top PRS with Dragon II pickups, which means it should be a Custom 22. I've got a green one, it's a killer guitar. I dig my McCarty Rosewood a little bit more though.

Awww, man. I'm starting to think maybe I need one of these. What about clean tones? This is where HBs always let me down, and the main reason I abandoned them in the 70s when I started playing w/less distortion.

Thanks for the additional info, Aaron.

Try a set of Filtertron copies... I popped a set of GFS Liverpool Filtertron copies into my Ibanez hollowbody... All the warmth and beef (and HUMbucking) of PAF's, with nice chimey jangle and without the mud. I'm LOVING these pickups, and I'm only into them for about $58 bucks... money well spent. I play mostly clean with edge for rhythm stuff, but these pups take to pedals well for the high gain stuff too.

It's a Standard 24...1991. I changed the pups last year. :)

Hey, Thanks very much for a peek into the inner sanctum!

You would appear to have all bases covered..

Did you get the tube-powered Zen yet?!?
