Mainly a guitar player worked as a session player and in many rock, soul and punk bands. I have been running my own home studio for the last 16 years recording not just guitars but other acoustic instruments and synths. Mainstream music generally leaves me cold, it does nothing for me except reminds me that money talks! I believe music should be ‘by the people and for the people’!

Guitars: Fender custom shop Strat (Jeff Beck Spec), Fender Tele (52 Reissue with stacked humber at neck), Gretsch 6131 Jet Firebird, Gibson LP Standard, Guild F1512 12 string, Martin DX1 Dreadnought 6 string, Taylor 114C 6-String, Kremona Fiesta F65CW Spanish, Godin LGXT (Synth guitar), Fender Jazz bass, 1910 Vega Mandolin, Luna Ukelele.
Other guitar gear: UAD Ox, Fender Vibroking, Fender Deluxe, Fender Rumble, Roland GR-55 Guitar Synth, many many other pedals!
