Q: I love your sound! On Vulnerable you have that humbucker crunch on your guitars. What was the lead guitar using on this song? Sounds Like a Nice Les Paul! Try a Vox 77 series. I think you'd love it!

A: Ken, Thank you for the compliment on my tone! I think all of us guitarist are tone chasers! I know I have been through thousands of dollars worth of gear to arrive at my current setup. I run quite a bit of different things stacked on top of each other. The solo was on my Les Paul. . . good call on that. I use a JD-7 by Radial to run a Mesa Road King, Peavey 5150, Peavey 5150 III, and a POD X3 Pro together into my DAW, which is Cubase. I then use a couple of effects in Cubase to color the tone a bit. I learned about the JD-7 after reading about different methods Steve Vai uses to record his guitars. I took a chance on the device and am out of this world pleased with it. It really allows you to use up to 7 different amps and mix the tonal shapes of each to arrive at a truly one of a kind tone. I'll check out the Vox 77 too! A guy can never have too many options! Thanks for the question and the suggestion! Paul
