Equipment

As a perfectionist in his craft, Gordon has used many different makes of guitar and equipment over the years.

He uses up to 6 different guitars on stage during a show, a pedal board to give him the delay effects, and a loop station to multitrack his electric guitar.

These are some of the brands and companies that Gordon has selected as best meeting his current needs.

As well as Martins my new Wyres signature strings are now available via whatever route you fancy:

Ebay, Ivor Mairant, or direct from www.hinesitedistribution.co.uk Tel..01634 241213.

There are currently two GG sets out there a 6 string set and a 12 string set to be tuned to either C sharp or D below concert pitch, I NEVER tune a 12 string up to concert pitch!

These sets aren't cheap I have to be honest, but being a coated string they last for ages, and to my ears they sound lovely, and as I say on the packet. ”They have an indefinable sound”

The artwork is based on a portrait by Jan Leytham Gain for the ‘As it Happens’ album of a few years back which I have also used on the new GG Signature Pick

Hope you all like the look of my signature pick, made in the USA by Clayton Picks, which is currently my plectrum of choice. The gauge is 63 mm and has the tone I like, is flexible but still rigid enough to give a good rich sound.

These will soon be offered for sale on line and at concerts at
£1-50 each or 4 for £5. plus p&p if bought on line.
