My 1994 Gibson Les Paul Custom autographed by Warren Haynes & Johnny Winter

Johnny Winter inspired me to pick up and try to play slide guitar a long time ago, then years later Derek Trucks re-ignited my passion for it.

This is my 1994 Gibson Les Paul Custom that I purchased brand new, but one year old, in 1995.

It was signed by Warren Haynes not long after I bought it, then the Master Slide Legend Johnny Winter a few years later!!

I ‘m stringing it as I usually do – with size 10-46 Strings.

I’m not too partial to one brand or the other at the moment, as I see great qualities in a few brands and go back and forth depending on the tone I’m shooting for, or the mood I’m in. GHS, Dunlop, Ernie Ball and DR are my go to favorites.

I tune it Standard Low to High EADGBe for slide or finger playing.

Overall for feel and tone, I prefer using glass over metal slides – when I do want the CRISPY SHIVERS of metal on metal sliding, I prefer Brass to chrome.
