Arnold Quezada/ Dirty Machine
When I was first introduced to the world of Rock N Roll at the tender age of eleven, I immediately became hooked! I had never heard or seen anything like it so I jumped into the music head first. A few years later when I was in high school, a friend brought his electric guitar with a mini practice amp to school. I asked him if I could play it during our lunch break and he agreed. From the moment that I held that instrument I knew that I was destined to play guitar. After borrowing guitars from friends and begging my parents to buy one for me, I finally became the owner of my first axe and I played it relentlessly.
After I became more familiar with guitar brands and guitar tones I tried a guitar that was equipped with EMG pickups. After that first strum I was in love! The tone, the crunch, the clarity the EMG's gave out just felt right to me and knew I had to own a guitar with these pickups. Working after school and on weekends I was able to save enough money to buy my first EMG 81/85 equipped ESP Ltd Viper 400 back in 2004! After thirteen years that same guitar still holds its tone both live and in the studio!
