What specific gear and Guitars are you working with and why do you choose them?
“Currently I play a 7 string LTD guitar but this year may bring a collaboration with Ibanez guitars. I hope it works out. I had a chance try one type of Prestige I was very “wet”. At home and in practice I use an IBANEZ (RGDIX) but Prestige so far seems the best instrument I have had in my hands. We will see.
