According to my mother, as infant my father would play his tunes loud around the house which lead me to develop a knack to play music. I am a multi-instrumentalist, as I have played: drums, bass, the accordion, violin, etc. But, my favorite instrument to play is guitar. I started noticing that the bands I grew up with such as Metallica, Slipknot, Trivium etc. had a strong guitar sound and so I began experimenting with my tone and found exactly what I was looking for when I picked up an ax powered by EMG pickups and I’ve been hooked ever since. My licks sound refreshingly consistent, crisp and clear. Making it extremely difficult to put my guitar down once the riffage begins.
