- Lead Guitar:
A Gibson les Paul Gold Top Deluxe has been my main instrument over the years, but these days I use an Ibanez most of the time, as it dosn't break my back! I modified this guitar by transplanting the electronics of a Variax into it, so I can do altered and drop tunings and acoustics etc.
Recently acquired a Kemper and profiled my Fender Twin Reverbs. I also have a 130Watt Bugerra head and a 4 x 12 cab for a more traditional rock setup, but the Kemper gives me all these and countless other amps for whatever is needed.
I use GT10 for live work, as this lets me get most sounds, and control volume or switch between sounds very easily, and combined with the Kemper I can get pretty much any sound.
I also use custom ACS in ear monitors with built in mics.

Lead guitar examples - ( intros, outros and solos) Track number: 2 Genre: Alternative
An example of some of my lead bits from a few different tunes. The first 2 examples sound like keyboards but are actually guitar. The others are more traditional melodic rock lead break type stuff.

Short demo track of a heavy bass track with manic lead solo - reminded me of aliens invading the planet, hence the name.
