Switched from my Les Paul to a Strat for awhile as main axe! Gonna see how this goes, needed a change!


“Caught his set at "Chubby's" in Chicago. Quite a wild mix of classic and 80's style rock as well as a nice selection of modern cuts. Great stage presence and crowd interaction to go with a powerful voice that almost needed no mic !!! We recommend you check out Russ Strapp wherever you can!!”
