    That’s not Marty, but his touring guitarist, Jordan Ziff (who also plays in RATT).

    Not Marty, but he does look like him. Amazing guitar though imo.

    I was so pumped for a minute, hoping for it to be a Kelly... but then i remembered it’s not the 90’s and was filled with sadness.

    At least for a moment i was able to experience joy.

    Had to Google to see why that name was familiar. Now I remember listening to his band Age of Evil in high school during the MySpace days. Interesting to see that he's doing that now.

    I caught Marty a few years ago on the Inferno tour and had never seen Jordan play before. Many times in the night, he stole the show and was the perfect complement for Marty and his band. Jordan had that same custom 7 monarkh and used it for about half the set. Marty was strictly playing his 6 string monarkhs and kellys.

    I watched some clips of him playing in Ratt over the last few months and he's killing it (although, i can't say the same for stephen pearcy).

    Nah fuck that, I dig the Marty Friedman version with the wider cutaway. :lol: The Pro version with the one that looks like a deformed growth looks ugly as fuck.

    Marty did use a 7-string S guitar when he was using Ibanez.

    Im surprised that you didn't realize that wasn't Marty just by the way he is holding is pick.


    Let alone that this guy looks like 25 years younger than Marty, give or take a few.

    Yeesh, I'd take the Wylde LP over this all day. This looks like something went wrong on the band saw but fuck it, buff it out and paint it.

    The one he's using has a better cut away

    Seriously, I'm not sure what Jackson was thinking with the Pro and X series monarkh. Not only does it look ugly but it looks like it has worse upper fret access.
