This is my '83 Kramer Pacer, I named it "Merlin". It is my favorite "live" guitar
for Audioize shows. It's coming up on it's 30th birthday, and I've been
taking care of it all these years! I've swapped out the pickups a number
of times now. The Dimarzio HS2 in the neck position, as well as the
Seymour Duncan Dimebucker in the bridge position, are both wired to
3 way switches, allowing me to switch from humbucking, true single
coil, and parallel wiring configurations. I set intonation using a Peterson
V-SAM (seen here) - as Nigel Tufnel said, "Musician, gotta stay in tune!"
This is the neckthrough '88 Charvel Model 6 used for most all of the
Audioize recordings. It has a wonderful tone and playability.
The Model 6's "sister", the neckthrough Charvel JB2 bass. I set it up with
VERY light guage Rotosound strings and extremely low action and camber.
It's my studio bass, and its setup is much to low for most bassists. But It's
great for a guitarist like me, I'm not a bassist, I play with a pick! But that's
the point, your instrument should be set up for your
This Fender Jazz bass was setup for Veikko Lepisto, who plays for LOTS
of bands including Steve Soto and The Twisted Hearts, and The New Recessionaires.
Gotta love a Jackson. I certainly enjoy working on them. They're great guitars!
An Epiphone SG, I changed out the original bridge pickup for a Dimarzio
Super Distortion. It makes for a GREAT punk rock guitar!
