Tyler's dream guitar finally realized, B.C. Rich Assassin ASM PRO Guitar.
He spent years looking for a guitar with these attributes and would have had to pay $3K + for a Custom Shop to make one for me, couldn't pay that. Wanted either a Maple or Ebony Fingerboard. His Steinbergers pretty much meet all those specs, but don't have a body and their tremolo system isn't as good as Floyd Rose.
SPECS:
a. Neck Thru Mahogany Body,
b. 24 Frets on Ebony or Maple,
c. Floyd Rose DBL Lock Tremolo,
d. Active 81 & 85 EMG HB Pickups
e. Grover Tuners
It came beautifully set up.
Tyler's Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster SH (single coil & Humbucker), bought in 2010. Great gig guitar. Tyler's Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster SH.
Tyler's Epiphone reissue of the 1957 Les Paul Jr, bought in 2007 - single cut slab body with a set neck. Plays and sounds very sweet. I gave it to my son for Christmas 2012 Tyler's Kustom HV65 Hybrid tube amp. A great amp that took me years to find as equipped: The tone is tube, the power is solid state which makes it 30 pounds lighter than an all-tube amp. It sounds like a Jazz amp on clean and a Marshall on overdrive, and it has a single 12" speaker with an effects loop.
Tyler's dream guitar realized - a Les Paul with a Floyd Rose double locking tremolo system. A Goth LP Studio version by Epiphone looks cool and was the right price. Once the action was set up by Ron Kayfield the Goth's amazing sound and feel was comparable to my Gibson Les Paul Customs and my B C Rich ASM Pro.

My t-shirt from Frank Ippolito's Professional Percussion Center in New York City in the 1970s. Our drummer bought a very expensive set of North Drums and the salesman gave the band t-shirts. I learned that the store was pretty much the center of the earth for drummers for many years. The chain drive kick pedal was patented by Al Duffy while he worked at the store.
