This Gibson Flying V (above) is the one I used on our first album. I’ve had it for over 20 years. It’s been through hell and high water with me and still plays like a dream. By the way, my ring was custommade by 13Lucky Monkey, Filipino artisans...
A mug of coffee and my favorite cigar (Antonio Gimenez Robusto) are a great way to start a day.
