    Sorry if there has been a thread on this but I searched it.I just started to listen to testament a couple months ago and I have to say I love Alex's playing and even more his guitar sound. Does anyone know what guitar and pick-ups he had?

    If I am not mistaken, on the first 3 records, Alex did use Ibanez quitars. He has gone back and forth between DiMarzio and Seymour Duncan pickups. Depending on who is paying him.
