One of my all time favourites The Edge from U2 is a guitar innovator who’s sound was the fabric of my teen years and beyond. My memories of him was with a simple black Fender Stratocaster belting out his chiming delay laden sound we all came to know and love. Not what your typical guitarist would be playing. More
I really love Rock-A-Billy and I’m a huge fan of 50’s-60’s rock and roll. So when the Stray Cat’s appeared on the scene in the early 80’s I became an instant fan. Their sound is Brian’s innovative twang that livened up every track of the Cat’s records. Gretsch has had Setzer models for years and deservedly so.

Van Halen guitarist Eddie ushered in a whole new configuration of rock guitar. Utilized amps to suit his own sound.

I was first made aware of Moon guitars back in 86′ when Stuart Adamson & Bruce Watson had commissioned a few guitars around the release of their album The Seer. Most memorable is Stuart’s dark red telecaster. It’s been almost three decades since then and I felt I had to revisit this maker of quality stringed instruments.
