Gear

Scott prides himself on having the best gear available. And the right “tool” for the job.
If someone asks “Do you really need that many guitars?”, my response is, “Does a carpenter have only one hammer?”.
Or another analogy: I love the “colors” that my instruments allow me to “paint” my music with. The variety, and shades make for great images.
