I’m traveling with a $21,000 film and audio studio. Someone said earlier, “If you’re really a filmmaker, where’s your photos of you on a set?”
I’m like , “Well… I’ve got a studio in my car, where would like me to set it up?”
I’m making a film as I type this.

Through a series of events I’m not going to reveal just yet, I stopped in Des Moines to buy one of Josh Rand’s personal collection, limited run, Ibanez J Custom guitars. This was his guitar. I’ll be using it to record the solo on my coming single.
John Peterucci is the guitarist from two time Grammy Nominated Dream Theater, or one of the best guitarists in the planet.
This has been my dream guitar for many years and today I bought it. I guess you could you call that lifting shadows off a dream, right?
Be sure to buy the latest Dream Theater album, The Astonishing, an album that all true Dream Theater fans love, and you’ll love it too, just like I love this guitar.
White Ibanez Jem Jr. for recording guitar solos.
ESP LTD James Hetfield signature w/ EMG Het Set pickups, for recording rhythm guitars.
ESP LTD six string bass
One Gallon WD-40 “Canjo” slide guitar
Basically, I can only travel until I fill my car completely up with guitars. Then, I have to go home, where I have most of the following, sans the Les Paul and Master of Puppets guitar, which are soon being replaced.
Needless to say, when I get home I have my own recording studio, so I can do full productions of the songs I’ve demoed on the road.
This is what recording guitars in a hotel shower looks like.
So all of this travel isn’t pointless. There’s a large thread of the active creation of various types of art, while I’m exploring the county, being newly inspired everywhere I go.
Travel is my muse.
Found this in a random guitar shop in Omaha. I have an extensive guitar collection and this is my latest addition. I love it.
