    Saw the amazing Chris Cain again last night and was taken to school! The dude is on another playing level. This video was first tune of the night, just warming up. Sorry for vert video

    He normally plays a 335 when I've seen him but last night he had what looked to be a 01-02 Custom Authentic R8, KILLER tone. He plugged straight into a Music Man little combo. That was it.

    Cain is really something else as a overall musician, he also rips on piano as well. Some of his biggest fans are Robben Ford and Larry Carlton to name a few.

    I think the amp is a Music Man 112RD-50. Early 80's hybrid combo amp. Was the first amp I owned, but I wanted a Marshall tone so I traded it in for a JTM 30 in the 90's. Chris sure makes it sound good though!

    I've seen him quite a number of times over the last two decades, and I've ONLY seen him play that Tobacco Burst 335.

    Awesome player, and a nice guy. If you see him at the bar, he likes Corona.
