[quote author=IommiSG link=topic=17029.msg217470#msg217470 date=1217969810] In an interview last year with Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee, Geddy said he much preferred Alex' tone when playing a GIBSON rather than a PRS. Alex got into PRS after his Strat years, when he was going for a cleaner/thinner tone. I totally agree, I much prefer the fat, warm tone of just about any Gibson over a PRS. And you can add me to the list of players who have never been able to make friends w/a Fender. Not knocking them, but agree that it seems you have to be willing to do battle w/the things... [/quote] I saw Rush play a month ago and Alex used LP's almost exclusively. Now keep in mind I have seen every tour for the last couple decades and I have to say that his tone was so huge this tour that I was shocked at the difference over last tour where he played several of his PRS's. Alot of the late 80's/90's numbers they did sounded 1000 percent better than before. So much more ballsy and raw than I remember from before. That show made a total believer out of me.
