    At the moment, my main guitar is a Paul Reed Smith Tremonti Singlecut running into a Randall RM 100 head (all tube) and a Randall 4 X 12 Cab with Celestion Vintage 30's.

    I run into a Dunlop Wylde Wah, a Seymour Duncan Twin Tube Mayhem Pedal and a Tuner Pedal but I am looking into a Digitech GSP 1101 and Control unit in the new year.

    I also have a few other guitars - Gibson Les Paul Gold Top, ESP Mustaine V, Schecter Hellraiser and Jeff Loomis Models, and a few more.

    cheers man. the Caparisons have great tone and playability (although I find the Ibanez's are better for the upper fret access and the pickups sit flatter on the axe for comfort). the Dellinger ebony fretboards are nice for the fast runs. plus, the devil tail headstock is freakin cool as! yeah, i saw that Con used one also.

    try the ENGL man! you will not be dissapointed.

    I usually put the head on top of the cab. It looks a bit silly the other way round.
