Ed does extensive fretless work and also endorses Vigier Guitars. Ed also works as an engineer, counting Elliot Sharp’s last release, Secular Steel, as one recent project. When asked, Ed reckoned his top three favourite guitars would be; Fretless – Vigier Surfretter, Strat – Suhr Classic, and best all purpose – Eggle Single chambered.

Lets see…body is mahagony, top is Black wood. I hate black hardware. The pick-up rings are ebony so silver isn’t an option. 8 string will be tuned E-A-D-G-C-F-A-D, bottom like a bass top like a guitar a whole step down. It won’t be light but it has some good size chambers so it won’t be too crazy. – Ed
