Tone Pros Dwight Devereaux is the mastermind behind one of the greatest changes to guitar tone in recent years. He basically took “the wheel” and reinvented it. Dwight and Tone Pros have always been so supportive of McSwain Guitars and Tone Pros is the only tune-o-matic and wrap around bridge that goes on a McSwain!
Imperial Customs Donnie Baird is “THE MAN” when it comes to metal flake painting. Be it cars or guitars, Donnie’s work is unparalleled. He painted the very first “Flame” which is the same paint scheme as his slammed 1960 Buick Invicta.

24-7 Spyz 24-7 Spyz are the godfathers of heavy metal soul. Jimi Hazel and Rick Skatore are my long lost brothers and are a huge influence of my musical taste. Much love, peace and respect.
Jammit I WISH I would have had this little jem when I was learning to play guitar as a kid! Mr. Scott Humphrey devised this brilliant application for the iPhone/ipod that allows you as a user to basically remix multitudes of your favorite band's records on your device! They are the ACTUAL masters from bands like Pantera and White Zombie to Alice Cooper and Foreigner. You can isolate the tracks and slow them down in real time and learn the song note for note. Bravo Scotty!!!
