TvB guitar rig - Stéphane - 02-11-2006

I know Troy used to rock a black Telecaster Plus back in the days but he now seems to like this green custom Strat better.

So what's the word about it ? Who made it ? What is it that makes it spécial to our man Troy ? Any piece of info will do.

As for the rest of Troys equipment, I found this is made of a RC20 (XL?) Boss phrase sampler and a Digitech GNX2 (or is it an old RP2000?) multi effects / amp simulator. Troy would play it into some big ass Fender combo onstage.

If you guys happen to know sh*t than don't hesitate to add to this and eventually correct me. I'm such a guitar geek. Please. Help me ! Big Grin

Well it's definitely not a real Strat. And it sure isn't green Smile Look at this picture to see the original colour:

It seems to have a neck-through body, and the back of the head bears the signature "Eric Johnson" (who appears to be some kind of famous guitar hero).

Troy recorded Black Black with that guitar...

Actually, I'm speaking of a different strat like guitar. It can be seen on the page below.

Anyway, somebody please delete this thread so I can pretend nothing happened ! Smile

Hey, that's the same guitar! :lol: It's just been heavily "decorated" with some kind of semi-transparent green-yellow plastic tape... I seem to remember Troy telling me he didn't like the original look of that guitar, so I guess he just decided to cover it up...

Oh is it ? I would have guessed Troy's name was now big enough for getting him offically endorsed by some custom guitar manufacturer. Anyway, thanks ! Smile
