    I love that at the very end he flashes his coin/pick. Staying so true to Brian May.

    Yes really great and looks like he chose to play it with a Mesa Boogie Lonestar Classic amp - wise choice :)

    IMO, Timmons is the current king of instrumental electric rock guitar.

    If you haven't yet, you must get his last 2 albums: Revolution and Theme From A Perfect World. And if you're a Beatles fan, also his Andy Timmons Plays Sgt. Pepper

    Very cool. Honestly, I just know him as the guy who does Mesa demos, but I know he has more to him than that. :)

    I was recently turned on to Andy by seeing him on That Pedal Show. I've since watched dozens of his videos. I got his Sgt. Pepper album and he's really amazing.
    He's also an incredibly nice guy... as I'm looking at the LoneStar and LoneStar Special, I wrote to him to ask his opinion and he wrote back within a day with his recommendation. I figured I'd be lucky to get a reply within a few weeks if at all, nevermind the next day.
    He recommended a LoneStar with EL34's, BTW.

    At least your only knowledge of him isn't "the guy from Danger Danger" lol

    He does many things, VERY well...

    Yes, I ordered some tab from his webstore, and he handles all that stuff personally.
    The Lonestar w/EL34s is his personal rig, altho I think he mentioned he likes the new Fillmore so much he might be taking it out on his next tour...

    I'd still love to get a Lonestar w/2x12 cab, as my "main rock" rock amp. In the meantime, his lead tone is easily achieved with his signature JHS @ pedal.... he even uses the JHS now live as his lead tone instead of the Mesa's dirt channel... seriously, put the JHS @ into a clean amp, and it's instant Andy Timmons lead tone. Thick, fluid, smooth... even with a tele!
