The other day I happened to stumble upon a blog post on a friend's band's blog, where their bassist talked about his gear, so, I though, why wouldn't we do that too? I know I would love to read posts like these from the bands I like and I bet there's some folks out there who are like me and happen to like our music. This is for you.
First of all, I'd like to introduce my main tool, which is, of course, my guitar, a Gibson SG Standard. It is, to put it simply, the best guitar I've played so far, fits my hand like a glove. It's relatively new to me, though. The first recording you can hear it on is our Live at Studio web EP from last summer. On Chapter III I played another Gibson, an SG Special Faded, and on Silence, I had a Jackson Kelly. The Kelly had active EMG pickups, and while they sound good, I found since that I like passive pickups a lot more. I think both the SG Special and SG Standard have the same pickups, only the Standard has them covered with those cool-looking chrome covers. The finishing on the Standard is also a lot better than on the Special. I string my SG with D'Addario EJ22s (jazz medium gauge) and tune to C# standard. I like a wound G string.
The cables I have (the longer ones anyway; got some planet waves between pedals) are made by ProCo, if I remember correctly, and they've valiantly stood up to a considerable amount of use and abuse.
I think that about sums it up. If you have any questions, though, don't hesitate to ask (by commenting here or on our facebook page)!
P.S. Sorry about the shitty photos. I meant to take them with a better camera, but its battery had died.
