Video footage of Alex Skolnick‘s January 22 clinic at the ESP Guitars booth at the Anaheim convention center during the 2015 NAMM Show.
In 2009 Heritage released Alex’s first signature guitar. His signature is a solid body based upon the H 150/157 model. In his early years with Testament he endorsed Ibanez guitars and mainly played the 540SLTD model. For amplification, he uses Budda amps and several Marshall amps including the discontinued Marshall ModeFour hybrid amps.
In 2013, Budda released a signature amp for Skolnick, called the Preceptor, and later in the same year it was announced that Skolnick was signed to ESP guitars, with an ESP and LTD model in the works for 2014.
