RIG RUNDOWN: Oh where to start..... Let's begin with the skin and bones of the operation. I'm playing a Gibson Sg Special modified with Lindy Fralin P 90 pick ups going into a Marshall DSL40C. Now we get to the heart and soul of my setup. I've got a Voodoo Lab Dingbat pedalboard with a PX pedal switcher. The pedals I'm running include a Keeley Compressor, MXR Carbon Copy Delay and Phase 90 pedals, some usual dirt pedals by Fulltone and Earthquaker Devices, and a ton of Electro-Harmonix synthesizer pedals that include the Mel9 and Synth9.
