I just saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbOphAmCCTA

wasn't dexter official endorser of ibanez? (http://www.ibanez.com/Artists)

so, WTF?

Yeah, that's not a Gibson. It looks to be a Les Paul style guitar, but not a Gibson, it's an Ibanez. Every major guitar company has some kind of Les Paul rip off.

Also, people who are official endorsees are not contractually obliged to never play any other brand ever again. Plenty of artists are endorsed by more than one guitar company, and plenty of guitarists have an endorsement with one company, and play their guitars, but also use a plethora of other equipment too. Like how Slash is a Gibson endorsee but frequently plays a BC Rich Mockingbird.

p.s. that is the worst vocal performance I've ever heard him do.

edit: after checking, Dexter seems to be using two of these (one red, one black) one is probably using a different set of pickups.

edit 2 : I do remember a few years ago when Dexter did mention that he retired that famous RG that he is mostly associated with:

It's still an Ibanez as already pointed out.... I think he liked the neck! Les paul's style neck is sooooo cool to play!

and no, it's not different pick ups, it's different tuning, just like the silver and black diamond plated rg's. they all got some guitars in standard tuning and one one step lower

Ahh, cool. I thought it might be tuning, but I was pretty sure they play half a step down for every song live.

Learn something new every day :)

Does it really matter what guitar Mr. Dexter Holland is using ,eh? He plays the newer ones very well. I'm a fan. So rad. Screw the old guitars.

well it's important in sound terms... you can hear a big difference in the clean sound for example, it's so fatter! then it depends what you're interested in...I as a guitar player I'm really into all this stuff, guitars, amps, strings, pedals, and all the possible shit. :D

Sorry, excuse my ignorance :eek:. I'm not a guitar player but I can respect the fact that you are a guitar player and knows the fucks you are talking abouts. Thanks for sharing some cool info about the equipment stuff. From now on, I shall stick by shutting up my mouth and not opening it for shit.

ahah why so hard with yourself dude? fans have different interests about the band, that's cool too. I can understand that if someone talks about something you're not interested in you're like "what's all that about? who cares? and so on" :D

cgmhay
That took me a good minute and a half to figure out what song that was short for. I went through each album's track-list in my head until I hit Splinter.

I am an amateur (aka not very good) guitar player, and I don't know near enough about guitars as I should, but I know this: that guitar is so sexy.

as you can see bu the picture frets inlays are different and pickups too. I think he might have played a les paul in studio and liked it, so asked ibanez to do a model for him that sounded like it :) or maybe not.... It's strange because les paul models are a bit tiny, and in his hands seems like a toy, he should ask for a bigger model like fletcher from pennywise :D

Sometimes they play Want You Bad in Eb. Also on Days Go By the capo is on the 2nd fret ;)

On another note...I miss him using the RG all the time. I love them so much.
