GUITARS

Warmoth Stratocaster
1985 Warmoth Strat body with a 1980 Fender Lead II neck. Bridge pickup was a SH-1B.
Fender Telecaster
1974 Fender Telecaster with a Seymour Duncan SH-1B pickup bridge, Gibson PAF (covered) neck. I made a pickguard out of a Venom At War With Satan LP. I love that album, but also tongue firmly in cheek.
Gibson Les Paul Studio
1977 Gibson Les Paul Studio with a Univox humbucker in the bridge position. Kurt gave me this pickup, kind of his passive-aggressive way to make my guitar sound more like his. I tested the pickup, and it's actually as hot as a Gibson PAF, so it was more an aesthetic move than anything.

EFFECTS

Boss DS-1
Distortion.
DoD FX-17
Wah.
Morley Fader
This would fade between the Marshall and the Fender, blending the two sometimes, rather than the binary A/B box.

AMPLIFICATION

Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series head + Marshall 4×12 speaker cab
For heavy/distorted sound.
Fender Super Twin Reverb
For clean sound.
