Paul plays and endorses Bill Moll Custom Guitars, and uses AER amps, and DTAR preamps in performance
"Bill Moll is not only a consumate craftsman and artist, but he actually listens to his customers. I can't begin to count the time he spent with me making sure the Custom Classic he built for me was voiced, and setup to my style of playing and the diverse types of music I'm called on to play.
When I recieved my guitar from Bill I was astonished at its execution. I've played and owned many fine guitars in my life, but this axe was just in a totally different league. The fit / finish, and detailing are just amazing. Its acoustic voice is unique, and plugged in, its tonal response is well.. just killer. Since then I've taken delivery on one of Bills custom laminates, and again, I was amazed by it. I defy most listeners to be able to tell its a laminated instrument. It looks carved, and SOUNDs carved.
Bill Moll stands out as one of the finest builders in the world today."
