  1. Like many of you, I have followed all of Alex's guitar auction developments. It's very moving to see that the white Gibson ES-355, the Hentor and all its iconic instruments will soon be sold. After consulting Alex's catalog, I found that some guitars are not at auction. I'm thinking of the Fender Telecaster Blonde he uses to write, the Signatures, some PRS and also two guitars that Alex used a lot in the 80s: Fender All black Stratocaster (as Hentor) and the red Stratocaster. Maybe he already sold the signatures because he said he didn't really like those guitars, but I wonder what happened to the blonde telecaster and the other 2 stratocasters. Also, I'm a bit surprised that he hasn't put any of his amplifiers on sale. I am thinking of the Hiwatts, the Marshall, the Hughes & Kettner and in the 80s the Gallien Kruger and the Deans Markley http://www.vintageguitar.com/wp-content/uploads/LIFESON4.jpg http://www.2112.net/powerwindows/press/Prog43-feb2014a.jpg
  2. Hello! Alex has used several guitars during his career. During the 70s, he mainly used semi-hollow Gibson (ES-335, 345 and 355 white). During the first half of the 80s, he was often seen with 3 modified Fender. A black, a red and a White nickname "Hentor" Then, for a few years (Hord your Fire and Presto) he used Signature guitars with active pickups. In the 90s, he mostly used Paul Reed Smiths and then finally, in the years 2000 and 2010, he mainly used Gibson Les Paul. So what are your Alex top 5 guitars? Here's my mine : Gibson ES-355 '76 (white) : Main guitar for AFTK, Hemisphere, Permanent Wave and some songs for MP. Fender Stratocaster modified "Hentor" : Used for Limelight solo and several songs on MP. Main guitar for Signals, GUP, and Power Windows Gibson EDS 1275 double neck (Red then White) : used on Xanadu Gibson Les Paul '75 (tobacco burst) : Used for All the world's stage and later on Stick it out. On tours in the '90 and '00 Paul Reed Smith CE Bolt-on '90 (black) used among others on Dreamline, Leave my things Alone Special mention for the Fender Telecaster Reissue (blonde). Alex's main writing guitar.
