    Default speaking of endorsements ..

    our old Forum buddy Bulb gets more axes thrown at him than DLR did girls underpants back in the day...

    Ive seen him endorse Rico and about 5 others..

    Latest is a Jackson.

    I don't think I'd want a headline telling everyone I've got a blue dinky.

    Just sayin'.

    His Daemoness (small british luthier):


    His Strandberg:


    His JP EBMM:


    I don't even know, but still awesome (apparently VIK guitars):


    Blackmachine:


    Custom Shop Soloist:


    Dell'isola:

    thats what Im saying! Never seen a new artist with so many custom guitars. Id expect it from Brad Whitford or someone like that..

    I LOVE the purple of the Petrucci's. But OMG that Mayoness is sick! WOW!!!

    I love quilt and that color...

    And these are just the ones he has good pictures of on Periphery's Facebook. There's LACS Ibanezs, at least one more Blackmachine, one more Deamoness, I think another two more Mayones, a 7 string JP and who knows what else between them...

    And for those who prefer the lower register, their bassist has custom Mayones and Warwicks at least...

    I know! These are all custom works of art.. not just run of the mill signature models that are normal guitars with a special graffix package or something.

    Probably most of them. A lot of those are made by small builders who can't afford to take a hit and give away product like that. They may provide a discount depending on the visibility he provides to their product. Larger builder could probably give a bigger discount.

    He's not endorsed by any of them - he probably gets discounts, but one of his main policies has always been that he will not sign any sort of exclusivity agreement.

    And that single-humbucker Jackson that's pictured was on-loan to him while his custom 7 string was being made:

    agreed, I don't think he is endorsed; he just uses those guitars, and he gets special, one-off's. if he's 'endorsed' by Jackson, I'm being 'endorsed' by Crimson Guitars and Warmoth
