So I figured since Dave was selling us Marshall JVM's now (Bye bye Line 6). He'd make Chris use them too, along with Dean guitars. But evidently Chris is going to be recording using his Engl's and Ibanez's. Anybody know or have any pics of which Engl Chris uses/has been using? I betchya new Megadeth is gonna sound killer. I'm stoked. I like Chris Broderick. I've seen some Chris hate going on too, I just don't get why?

He missed a couple of natural harmonics in a performance of This Godless Endeavour. Easy ones. We all just take the piss because the man is otherwise incapable of playing in any other way than flawlessly.
#3
Chris is an amazing guitarist - I saw Megadeth a while back for Gigantour and Chris was amazing...he absolutely slayed at the show - better then Glen Drover in my opinion

To be honest, I don't care who you are, if Dave were to tell me what gear I was allowed to use for recording and I was of Broderick's standard, I'd tell him where to get off.

Besides you do realise that in the studio a band can use whatever the hell they want? Sponsored or not?
Funny words.

You must have met Dave or know him too!
I don't know who's more ate up about gear, him or Hetfield.

Probably Hetfield since he actually uses good gear.

No, I'm being serious. A lot of professionals use Vetta 2s, and they all have fantastic tone. Stop blindly bashing Line 6 amps, Spiders are the only vaguely substandard ones.

Funny story. I've met James a few times over the years. Once, I was actually alone with him. He was being totally cool and chitchat'n about stuff, then I mentioned I play guitar too and asked him about his gear.
*car brakes screeching*
bad move.
He kinda frowns at me and says "I use everything man"
I quickly changed the subject.

Okay, but Hetfield has used quite KILLER gear in studio and live. Mustaine had his Marshalls and his Rocktrons and whatever, but Hetfield has the better gear.

Just for the record, Metallica owns the most gear of any band, maybe in the history of music. No joke. Their collection is damn near priceless. They have like five of everything. Kirk and James have a WAREHOUSE FULL of guitars in the Bay area, over 600 last I heard.

Exactly.

Comparing Mustaine's gear to Hetfields is like putting a Ferrari against a Kia Rio.

Well Dave just uses whatever will get him an Endorsment these days.

Exactly, but in the past he's pushed that gear (current endorsements) on his other guitarist as well. It's been damn near mandatory. There have, or course, been exceptions, but rarely.

ok while this thread has gotten pretty funny, nobody has answered the question I was wondering- What Engl head(s) does Chris use? Does anybody know anything about his gear?? I have not seen Megadave live with Chris yet, I really don't know that much about the guy except the vid's I've seen of him play which are quite impressive...

20 seconds wiki.

Chris is endorsed by Ibanez guitars, with Bare Knuckle pickups (the Cold Sweat model in the neck, Nail Bomb in the bridge) along with ENGL Powerball amplifiers and uses DR High Beam 10 gauge strings, often with a 70 on the low Bb. Before using Ibanez and Bare Knuckles, he used Schecter Guitars with Seymour Duncan pickups. Recently, there were rumors among fans that Chris's arrival in Megadeth would force him to switch to Dean Guitars, but Chris has continued using his Los Angeles Custom Shop Ibanez RG Prestige Seven String in his gigs with Megadeth, settling the rumors. It is rumored that Ibanez might make a Chris Broderick Signature RG Seven String based on his Custom Shop RG.

Broderick's guitar features a locking tremolo but he uses a graphite nut instead of a standard locking nut, opting instead to use locking tuners. In his posts on the SevenString.org forum, he revealed that this is due to his only subtle use of the tremolo and the straight string pull of the guitar's tuners.

His most used guitar is constructed of a bolt on neck with a rosewood fingerboard dyed black, a mahogany body with a quilted maple top, and the entire guitar (body, neck, and headstock) is bound in flame maple.

Even after all that gear, they still go on and on about that magical mythical Marshall in every interview.

Thank you! But, I trust Wiki about as much as I would trust myself driving after I've been drinking. I think I'm ok, but it's the one time you think that something BAD happens. Try not to depend on it. The next thing you know, you'll be wrong because someone else was. Dangerous waters.

However:
1. I doubt Ibanez will put BKPs in it
2. Ibanez will most likely charge alot more than it should cost (Matt Bachand sig, I'm looking at you)

He hasn't got a signature, they're customs. He probably deserves one, and it would be schveet (if inordinately expensive), but he doesn't have one. Why wouldn't Ibanez let him have BKPs anyway?

Because BKP wont give them a huge discount for massive orders, the company cant put out massive orders, contracted deals that only allow the use of certain brands there already in business with and the list goes on and on...

Think Dimebag, when he got his signature Washburn.. Bill Lawrence couldn't supply so they went to Seymour Duncan to make a clone of his pup and deemed it the Dimebucker....

Considering the cost of making Chris' custom Ibanez superguitar, I think ordering him a set of expensive pickups from the perfidious Albion would be the least of their worries. A production line signature would never get BKPs of course, yeah... they'd probably try to fob them off with substandard in-house pickups.
