Sal plays Taylor acoustic guitars. The blue six string is a Taylor A15 that was custom made for him in 1984 with a Fishman under saddle pickup.The twelve string is a Taylor koa K55 with a Fishman Pre-fix system. The drednaught is a 610ce Taylor Cherryburst with the Taylor Expression pickup system installed. All Sal's guitar necks are cut 1 7/8 inches at the nut to accomodate Sal's large hands. On stage Sal plays through a Bose L1 system that he uses for a monitor when playing larger concerts. The guitars run through a Boomerang Phrase Sampler that allows Sal to Loop [record & playback live] and play leads with his songs when playing solo.
