The one that started it all! This is the guitar featured on the first wave of Testament albums, first seen in video for In “A Trial By Fire” where it caught the eye of MTV who included a quick flash of it in a promo clip alongside mostly pop videos (such as Peter Gabriel, Midnight Oil etc). Ibanez was also my first endorsement. As my playing developed and diversified, I eventually needed a guitar with more density & range (i.e. my current line of ESPs), however I’ll always value this guitar. Its the one I was most identified with in the early years. Even though it doesn’t see as much action these days, it’ll always be with me.
