Guitar in action

This a photo from Saturday nights show at Tiger Jam in Las Vegas. I found it on the internet and thought it offered a good depiction of my new guitar in action. My bandmate, No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal, is pictured to my right.
It's good to be rocking and on the road again! (click on photo to supersize it)

Amp and Pedals

It's time to check out my touring amp/pedal rig for 2009.
Below is the whole system pictured a few weeks ago at rehearsals:

Below left is the wireless/pedal/switching rack. Below right are heads.
At the point this photo was taken, I was still switching out pedals, so the wiring appears
somewhat untidy. It all got tightened up last week, as seen in the next picture below.

And below is a closeup of the pedals. Dave Friedman wired this rack up, as you can see I keep a pretty simple setup.
I like the guitar and amps to sound like a guitar and amps, most of the time, If you dig.
