Richard Scherer Guitar

Universally undisputed super-genius guitar virtuoso. Master of musical transcendentalism, stretcher of the Jazz envelope.

This musical giant's humble origin was the coal mining and steel towns of Pennsylvania. The guitar provided a refuge from the harsh conditions in the wilds of Appalachia.

Through hard work and sheer willpower he attained unrivaled talent and technique. The "God of the Guitar" nickname still doggedly follows Scherer to this day.

Influences include Jimi Hendrix, Tony MacAlpine, Carlos Santana, John McLaughlin, Al DiMiola, Joe Satriani, and every other monster shredder.

Jim has a legendary reputation as a dynamic drum slinger who would show up for show downs on open jam nights at West Coast clubs —sending the other drummers back home to practice.
