Love this guitar!!

Recently sold my old Ibanez Universe. I wanted a more diverse and use-able guitar. I was looking at an Epiphone LP. However after playing this in the store I fell in love and took it!!

Thanks for the complements bro! I am using a Boss DR5 for the drums on most of my tunes. The Egyptian shred and killer bee I believe is just My GNX pedal. It comes with drums and a million other FX. I am not big on Digital pedals but for the money that pedal offers a lot, especially if you do a lot of studio work.

Thanks for checkin my stuff out!



BTW, your recordings are really great too my friend! Great taste in music!

Hi Duggy,

I dig your Fool for your Loving solo. I used to play this song when this album first came out. Awesome profile.

That Ibanez Universe is SICK.
