My custom made Suhr guitar is a telelcaster style body, with three pickups and a trem so I can get all those fab Strat noises as well!!! This new instrument sounds much more authentic for the Roger Waters gig, plus it's the most musically versatile guitar I've ever owned...
The 'Rose' graphics were conceived and created by Anne-Marie Helder. She also researched and composed the Egyptian hieroglyphs seen on the back of the guitar body and, using pyrographic tools, burnt both the 'Rose' design and the hieroglphs directly into the wood...

Martin Guitars have been making fantastic sounding guitars forever... and they're still getting better!!! Combine that with the new Fishman Aura pickup system they're using, and I just thought "it's definitely time to upgrade"!!

I've always loved the sound of a 12 string guitar, and this is the best one I've ever heard!!
As you can see, most of them are Boss pedals; Simply put, they're the most reliable pedals there are... Some of the Boss pedals in my rig have been there for years, and they've never let me down... plus they sound great!!!
The new Cornford MK50 MKII is simply the most amazing sounding amp I've ever heard... It's got an incredible, sparkling clean channel, and the overdrive channel is the warmest, fattest thing ever... It's just so musical...
Also on this tour I used Cornford 1 x 12 cabinets (instead of the 4 X 12's used on the last tour) for a very cute looking stack!!!
In the past I've been offered loads of string deals with various companies, but I've always turned them down. I would rather pay for D'Addario strings then have any other strings for free... I've been using them forever on my classical, acoustic and electric guitars, and they're simply the best!!!
One of the coolest fringe benefits of getting the Roger Waters gig was having my own signature guitar picks!!!
They're just the 2.0mm Dunlop Gator grips, with my name replacing the picture of the alligator!! Dunlop made me a few hundred of these, but I like them so much that I rarely give them away!!!!
