    looks like he's going to be posting so gear story videos...should be interesting
    Starts with his Alex Lifeson model double neck...did not really think about the fact that the scratches on his guitar, were from Gordie using it...kind of a cool thing

    Very cool. Big Sugar = loudest guitar I’ve ever heard. Glad I took ear plugs.

    this episode he also drops Joel Plaskett as the guy who got him into these guitars...

    Cool! I used to live on the same street as GJ near Bloor and College. One day he put an old black leather couch out on the curb. My roomates and I grabbed it and took it home. It had some guitar picks in it.

    Big Sugar is the only show I have ever left because it was too loud. The rumour I heard was that GJ will not allow any guitars in his monitors so they have to be LOUD so he can hear them.

    Episode 3...his signature SG...
    I like that he is sel depreciating when he reflects on Hugo Boss...i also now understand how he got the sound of a couple songs

    I wish he would mention the amp(s)/pedals he is using on some of these guitar clips. I know he shows some things but still, quick chat on that would be cool.

    I remember seeing Grady live at a tiny club in peterborough....they were ducking loud and awesome.
    I think he used the only used black sg prototype and the white double neck (I had idea that was lifesons guitar) on stage....but there was like 8 gibsons on stage with him.

    yeah my only beef with Big Sugar is they would crank the PA up so loud, it would often distort & sound like crap

    killer tones though

    wonder when he will cover the Herzog?

    wonder no further...i always thought Gilles was pronounced in a 'french' way, not how he was pronouncing it...
    very cool!



    it pains me a little seeing the finger picks on these guitars..
