He was 18 when he came first, to us that is.. looked more like 16, still does, for all it matter... He's the sweetest, smoothest, cleanest guitar in our arsenal.
Uses a IBANEZ "JS" (for those who believe) or a Charvel Jasckson "Randy Rhoades Pro" starfish with all 6 strings always locked in tune and them thin Fender Picks or Plecks as you'd call them. Plucked from jaws of death metal, his shredding is ferrarisque and his blues, sublime.
His signature sound is derived from the following array
Carl Martin DC Drive,
Octa-Switch for effects switching,
Carl Martin Pro Power for effects power supply.
Along with the above mentioned effects, he also uses and abuses the following :
Boss Acoustic simulator AC-3,
Boss Digital Delay DD-7
Boss Chorus Ensemble CE-5
Boss Noise Suppressor NS-2
Boss Phase Shifter PS-3
Boss Foot Volume FV-500L
Jim Dunlop Eddie Van Halen LTD. Cry Baby
Boss SX-700 time based rack effects,
Line 6 POD XT-Pro, Line 6 FBX foot controller
