    Oh yeah, i've always loved Reb Beach, even his stuff with Winger. I think he's definitely one of the best. A friend of mine saw him live when he was with Dokken -I heard Don Dokken liked Reb Beach a little more than George Lynch too.

    I've always wanted an Ibanez RBM too.

    I've been a closet Winger fan for years and Reb is awesome. I didn't see him with Dokken but I can see him being able to pull off George with no problems.

    People can bust on Kip Winger all they want, but the band Winger was full of monster players. Try playing "Seventeen" sometime. It is actually pretty fucking hard.

    I was lucky enough to see a Reb Beach clinic back in '91 or '92 at a local music store. The dude is a monster player, and a super-nice guy. I was very impressed with his improv abilities over the pre-recorded tracks he had with him, too - people would ask him questions and he'd demonstrate using different modes/scales over the changes on the fly.

    I've always dug Reb's tone, phrasing and sense of melody. I love the way he seamlessly integrates really fluid tapping into his licks.

    All of the solo pieces in Headed for a Heartbreak were just gut-wrenching, but the outro parts starting around 3:15 still give me goosebumps.

    And i LOVE his Pensa-Suhr with the Koa body, rosewood neck and pau ferro fretboard. Glad to see his Suhr signature is almost identical, without the stupid mirrored wedge of a pickguard he got hung up on for a while.

    I actually had a chance to see Winger in 89 with Dream Theater opening at a club in New Haven, CT, but I opted to stay home and watch TV. It was about two months later when I discovered how good DT was.
