Here is the newest piece of my collection, a Gibson J45. It just arrived in time before Wacken and will replace my old Ovation from now on. It does not only have a great tone, it also brings a lot of fun and chaos into touring since it managed to confuse my guitar tech completely. By the time I arrived for soundcheck in Wacken, Danny already took the guitar apart completely, checking the built in preamp and all cables because he was convinced that something was broken since he didn´t get any signal from the guitar... Well, he couldn´t find any mistakes or damages in the setup, but he learned the very valuable lesson that if you turn the volume control clockwise the guitar will be muted, and if you turn it in the opposite direction everything works perfectly fine :-)
