My First Electric Guitar


In 1991 my parents bought me my first electric guitar and electric guitar amp for Christmas. The guitar was a brand new Squier II HSS Stratocaster in red, and the amp was a Peavey Rage 108 solid state practice amp. I loved that thing, and I learned on it for years but it eventually became my experimental project guitar. It was on that guitar that I taught myself how to replace pickups and knobs, and as you can see in the 3rd photo I even tried my hand (unsuccessfully) at painting. Eventually, I moved on from that guitar to others, an Aspen Les Paul copy, a Washburn (also seen in photo 3), and some other off-brand emerald green S-type that wasn’t work its weight in wood. Unfortunately in the end, I modified the Squier into oblivion. Its mangled body resided at a friend’s house for years, while its neck lived the rest of its life in my storage shed. The bridge and electronics live in a ziplock bag in my tool box. While my original Squier II won’t be played again, I may have found its brother online, and it may have to come live with me soon…

My New Amp – Blackstar Stage 60 2×12


I love this amp. It’s the quite possibly the best amp I’ve ever owned. It’s versatile, and has that creamy british distortion that I love.

Mainly out of bordem, I redesigned my band’s Web site, using Apple’s iWeb software. Check it out!

High Fidelity – Won’t Get Fooled Again


I had uploaded this video (High Fidelity playing The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again”) to YouTube, but YouTube’s processing of the video put the video and audio out of sync. This version is the original, higher resolution version.
