Ernie Ball Silhouette Special
This is my favorite guitar to play and the one I use the most when performing with Julie Black. It is light, balanced perfectly, and a beautiful blue with a subtle metalflake finish. I bought it used, sight-unseen, after playing the same model in a store (I couldn't afford a new one). Ernie Ball necks feel like butter, and really a treat to play if you are used to playing necks with a hard finish on them. I have to clean and sand this one every year, but it is absolutely worth it. Anyone who touches the neck of this guitar is pretty amazed, as I was. This is a small guitar overall, which suits my frame (and my back!) well.
I made some modifications to make it my own and to better suit my needs. I added a Pearloid pickguard and Graph-Tech saddles. I put Seymour Duncan humbuckers in there- an Alnico II Pro in the neck, and a Custom Custom in the bridge. These give me a warmer mid-heavy sound, that tends to take up a huge swath of frequencies. I added strap locks, too, as no guitar should be without them.
