Today's update brings much more positivity than the previous one!
First of all, I've switched to Imgur for photo hosting, and so far, they've been amazing (fingers crossed that it stays that way). I've updated Brad's page with new photo links, and from now on, all photos on a particular page will also be available in chronological order in a dedicated Imgur album as well (each photo on Imgur also has a short summary of the guitar model/finish and when it was used). The album for Brad's page is here: https://imgur.com/a/YkK8s
While working on this update, I've also acquired photos of two new previously-unknown guitars! One is an Ibanez RG2120X that was among many guitars that Brad smashed in 2003, and the other is an Ibanez RG470 that was briefly used as a backup guitar for baritone tunings in 2003...but also ended up being smashed! I've also discovered a LOT of new information on other guitars, so here's a quick summary!
-The Ibanez AX series guitar Brad was photographed with at one show in 2000 was actually an AX520, not a customized AX120 as I previously thought.
-The acoustic guitar Brad played on My December at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Xmas in 2000 was actually a Taylor 814ce, not a Takamine as I previously thought. Also, Brad surprisingly brought this guitar out of retirement to perform Sharp Edges at the Chester tribute show last month, so I added a second photo of it from that performance!
-I recieved confirmation that the Takamine guitars Brad and the rest of the band used for many years were Dragon series instruments, although I still don't know the exact model. I also changed the date of the guitar's last stage use from 2013 to 2014...I literally forgot that the Concert for the Philippines was a thing, lol. Whoops.
-I took a better photo of Brad's old Fernandes that I now have, since I'm working on getting photos of all my gear anyway.
-I found out that Brad actually played the customized Tim Mahoney SE on No More Sorrow for two shows in 2011, not just one like I previously thought.
-Made note that Brad's black PRS DC3 was used on Crawling at the Chester tribute show.
-Found out that the acoustic guitar Brad played for the Spotify headquarters appearance was a Gibson SJ-200, and found a better picture of it.
-Made small changes to information on various other guitars.
Lastly, on the tabs side of things, I've made updates to two songs. Multitracks for Forgotten have surfaced online, which led me to make a few small changes to strumming patterns throughout the song, and I made a small change to Sorry for Now, as I realized Guitars 5 and 6 follow the melody played by Guitar 7 at the end of the first part of the outro.
So that's a big chunk of work out of the way...but I've still got a LOT more to do to get caught up! Working on getting Mike's page updated with new links next.
