I can can most often be seen playing a Gibson ES-175 and some flavor of Fender amplifier. In the picture above, I am playing my trusty 1928 L5. I do own a Favino "gypsy swing" style guitar, but for most work I prefer to use the classic Swing and Jazz guitars like the ES-175, L-5 and L-7. I prefer smaller wattage amplifiers. I've been seen using old EH-150 amps and Br-9's. For most small gigs I usually use a highly modified NEW Fender Champ 600, or an old Bronco/Vibrochamp. For larger venues, I'll use something like a Fender Super Reverb, a Princeton Reverb, or even an old Hiwatt Combo.
Come out and see my band, Hot Club Pacific, EVERY MONDAY NIGHT, at Soif in Santa Cruz!
