HI, I am new to the site but have been playing for over 40 years.

My favorite genre is THE BLUES and that's quite easy to tel by the bands name...The Blues Disciples.


I am a HUGE GIBSON FAN with over 35 guitars but when it comes to AMPS I am a HUGE EARLY FENDER FAN with my favorite ampo being a DELUXE REVERB, PRINCETON REVERB, VIDRO-CHAMP, VIBROLUX< VIBRO-KING and my baby a 64 VIBRO VERB !!!!


Gibson Guitars and Vintage FENDER amps are like SOUP and sandwich.They are mean to go together.


I prefer the ES series but also am a huge fan of my 56 LESPAUl and MY FIREBIRD with 3 P-90's and my 66 SG SPECIAL, pretty much anything with P-90's....though I love my ES339,335,355,345,350,295,175 ad BRYDLAND I still seem to go for the ES-330 with those P-90's in it.

I guess I am pretty much very happy with my tone with P-90's.


Though one of my favorite Guitars is a TELE...I have an original 56 , 71 Custom and 72 DELUXE.....in the right hands a TELE can do anything and these being original is when FENDER was putting out TOP NOTCH guitars with ONE PIECE BODIES OF SOLID ASH !!!


I was wondering if this contest is open to musicians who are signed with a major label???


Thanks and I look forward to meeting you all in time.


later and peace,

St James
