|Jason Becker Custom Guitar|
Awesome birthday present from Carvin Guitars
I love the candy-apple red!
Thank you, Carvin Guitars, you kick ass!
We are inspired by our unique dual history as both a jazz institution and the home of Les Paul who played here from 1996-2009 and continues to guide us. Les Paul Monday's were always an event so our crown jewel continues to be Les Paul Mondays, reserved for Special Guest guitarists to honor Les and stand where he did (actually Les sat and his stool is in the back of the club!) and we donate a portion of sales every week to The Les Paul Foundation. The vibe has been incredible- where else can you see such iconic guitarists as Jeff Beck, Steve Miller, Todd Rudgren, Ted Nugent up close and sitting in with The legendary Les Paul Trio? Throughout the week you'll find amazing artists in the city's only "audiophile space- with amazing sound, sightlines great food and design. In addition to our incredible live shows here, Iridium also webcasts many shows in high definition and has built a state of the art recording studio. Visit our Facebook page for the latest happenings and special offers/shows at Iridium!

I love this pedal - such organic tones and very responsive. Works great with single coils or humbuckers. I'm running my Suhr Classic on bridge ML pickup into my Port City Pearl 50w Head through a 2x12 OS Port City cab. Cam audio.http://www.wamplerpedals.com for more info.

This is just one way to solo over diminished chords - there are many others and you can find more information on them in my tutorial - 'Essential Fusion Scales - Diminished Scale Harmony'.
Have fun and I'll see you next time!
All the best,

Title says most of it. When I speak of "Yngwie Malmsteen picking" it technically is just alternate picking so don't fret (lol) about it. oh and btw, PLEASE Mr. Peter Kay Please, I beg you, record the third series of PHOENIX NIGHTS. (or Max and Paddy season 2!!!)
Chris Broderick, three-time Grammy nominated guitarist of the thrash metal band Megadeth has generously donated this custom hand painted Ibanez Prestige S5470 Electric Guitar to his guitar hero, Jason Becker. It is personally autographed by all members of Megadeth: Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Shawn Drover, and Chris himself.The S Prestige series is Made-in-Japan by the finest Ibanez craftsmen and from top-of-the-line components. This beautifully contoured shape, combined with the ZR-2 tremolo system, produces warm, resonant tones from a super thin mahogany body. The comfortably thin S models feature a fast 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard high performance Prestige 24-fret neck, unlimited tonal possibilities from Hot Grinder and Short Tracer pickups in a hum/single/hum configuration and the revolutionary ZR2 bridge w/ZPS3 spring system for trem effects beyond anything you've experienced.
This guitar was used in the recording of Megadeth’s 12th studio album “Endgame”, and played live on important tours in 2009 through 2010.
“Jason Becker has been and continues to be one of my biggest influences whether it’s on the guitar, in music, or about life in general. I can’t say enough about the man who has been such a big part of my ability in music, so hopefully this guitar I have given to him to auction will convey in a small way my gratitude for all he has done!”
- Chris Broderick
