Dr Rod varies his guitars depending on songs and venues, but mostly he sticks to his old favourites:
1969 Gibson 335 in oxblood with original 59 PAF pickups and factory fitted coil tap switch, 60`s taper neck, plays like your favourite old jumper!
Gibson Les Paul Standard Limited edition in Manhattan Midnight Blue..the actual guitar pictured in the website logo. Fitted with Alnico 5 Burstbucker pickups.
USA Fender Strat, tobacco sunburst with pearl scratchplate.
The Fender Lace sensor Holy Grail pickups have now been replaced with
Bare Knuckle pickups, custom made by Tim Mills for Rod's
USA Fender Tele, tobacco sunburst, black scratchplate with Seymour Duncan Hotrails bridge pickup upgrade
To make them loud, Dr Rod uses either a Mesa Boogie Nomad 45w combo amp or a rather rare and tasty George Dennis "Blue" Head and Cab.
*Guitars maintained by Shane Haigh-The String Surgeon *Strings & bits supplied by Tom at Saturn Music and Nick at Trad Music.
The Fenderus Telecus, grown from cuttings in our own gardens.
