    Hi hard core fans of Linkin Park! :D
    I have a question for you guys, does anyone know what equipment
    is using Mike Shinoda? Does have Mike RG321 and whether he played on it somewhere?

    Sorry, my english is bad.. :)

    His latest keyboard set up is rather impressive actually.

    He has two synths: a Virus TI synth and a Korg Triton. Both synths are specifically designed for playing samples. That's why the synth he plays in New Divide sounds a little like a guitar, it's sampled from guitar chords and over-layed with various synth parts.

    Mike hasn't used an RG321 in years, Ibanez's website is way out of date with their info on some of their artists. In fact, Mike hasn't used Ibanez guitars at all since 2005.

    Here's what Mike's currently using, to my knowledge (this will likely change after the new album or even the tour that starts next month):

    PRS guitars (Custom, CE, and Singlecut models)
    Gibson SG guitars
    Fender Stratocaster guitars
    Takamine acoustic-electric guitars
    Korg Triton Studio 88 keyboard
    Acces Virus TI V2 synthesizer
    Audio Technica microphones/wireless systems

    And I THINK he's using Randall amplifiers like Brad now, but I'm not positive about that.

    What guitar series "Ibanez" Mike even used?
    And he has played ever on this guitar? If yes, where?

    No, the official Linkin Park website doesn't have equipment lists anymore.

    He used an RG321 in the Crawling video, which was later repainted and became the guitar in that picture. He used that version of it in the Faint video and on some live performances in 2003.

    He also used a dark blue RG Prestige model sometimes in 2001, not sure what the exact model was. Hard to tell what any of his others were since he always repainted them.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen him standing in front of a Randall amp a lot of times when he wants feedback.

    Yeah, pretty sure he switched to the Randalls at the same time Brad did. I'm just puzzled as to why because other than the acoustic part on TLTGYA, Mike essentially just plays with one distorted tone and shouldn't need the modeling preamps like Brad does. He doesn't even have a pedalboard on stage.

    Also, he's added a couple PRS SE One guitars to his arsenal on this latest tour (modified ones with humbuckers instead of the stock P90s).

    I'm always down with any good pics of any of LP's gear. I'm a junkie for stuff like that.
