    What kind of guitar does Jamie West Oram play?

    Jamie is always pictured with his very distinctive looking dark natural Strat type guitar with gold mirrored pick guard. Being a guitarist myself, I have always wondered whether or not his guitar is a cusomized Fender Strat or a completely different guitar made by an independent luthier I am also wondering what kind of pick ups he uses. Does anyone here know? Thanks.

    Thanks SilentGeoff. So it is a Schecter with EMG's. I would assume that this guitar was a U.S Schecter, back before they outsourced their work. Now schecter seems like a totally different guitar, at least not as high end. I never realized he used a Floyd. His whammy bar work at the tail end of "Outside" is spectacular, but I never pick up on a Floyd type of technique; he reallly is one the most original players out there. The EMG's make alot of sense as his clean sounds are quite shimmering and full. Thanks for the info.

    Had great results using a Levinson Blade R4 & lots of compression - very similar sound
