I have Guitar and Vocal responsibilities in my main band Waiting For The Bus.
I also play guitar in the bands at Riverside Church, (the band formerly known as) Fusion and Riot Youth.
I am a fan of Ibanez and Boss.
Ibanez for their good ratio in quality and cost.
Also because they're the most versatile guitars, with the SSH and HSH, along with detuner bridges and double locking bridges.
As for Boss, they're affordable (once theres a clearance sale) and their digital effects offer alot of functionality. Plus they're very sturdy.
