The Lou Pallo Les Paul was already retro’d to look old when Steve bought it from Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper)
Shown in the amp and pedal gallery below is an Ampex tube pre amp (back and front view) that came from an old Ampex tape recorder, this pre amp gives a huge amount of warmth to whatever goes through it including guitars and vocals. Steve calls it Uncle George after his Beatles producer hero George Martin.
Above is the Supro lap steel given to Steve by his father. He uses this on as many recordings as he can as he loves its tone so much and it still has the original strings and lead on it.
He thinks it is about 58 years old.

Steve calls the Midnight Blue Gretsch 'Lady Day', it was a stock factory special run for the Asian market G6128T solid body Duo Jet.
Normally it had a chambered mahogany back with a 3 ply maple top. But, this guitar is a non chambered version with a maple 'slab' top.
It was originally black but was re finished with Steve's choice of color by Curt Wilson @Old School Guitars for Gretsch. Curt also replaced the stock frets with stainless steel frets plus he fitted Custom Shop Seymour Duncan Pickups.
