I came across this 2018 vid of Viv with the Last in Line band with some classi DIO. The Engl sounds pretty good here, I'm not sure if that's his old Les Paul or not.

Back in the day he was the man. Looks like his old paul, pretty cool nobody has ripped it off. Happens too many times. Good post.

Always a great player to listen to! Glad that he was able to work with Gibson for his signature model. Loved his 80's guitars as well.

The last I heard as of a few years ago, he was using one Engl Blackmore half-stack and one Artist one. Every live Viv Last in Line clip I've heard with his LP / Engl setup is killer. :rock:

It's nice to Vinnie Appice still out there hitting the skins!!!!!!!!!

I'm not much of an Engl fan but I like the tone of that Blackmore.

Didn't Vivian usually run a Duncan Distortion in the bridge of the Les Paul?

It's his old LP loaded with Duncan 59s. Kinda makes me want a Blackmore.

It would be great to see 'em live this year. Fingers crossed.
I was a giant fan back in those early days...

I may have to see if I can get close with my Splawn. I don't really have $2k to be playing with GAS at the moment. lol.

I'm sure the Splawn can get that tone. I've seen used Blackmore's for around 1K.

Ya I have owned a few Engls. Not the Blackmore though. They have their own tone (Least to me)
I got an original Powerball that when I play the Crunch channel its damn near perfect. The lead channel is too liquidy? :lol: :LOL: :lol: :LOL:
If you can snag one on the cheap.... do it! :yes:

there are also clips from Europe where Viv is using the Engl Artist SE (look for the green power light)

I’m pretty sure his signature model has a Super Distortion in the neck and a Super3 in the bridge. Of course I know we’re talking about his old LP though.

This on both accounts :yes:

Heck....I've seen used Blackmore amps go as low as $800. They're cool amps, but I got rid of mine when I got the Savage 120; does everything the Blackmore can do but so much more.

In this vid the rep from Engl says the Blackmore was based on the Savage, I guess one of the early iterations was also made for Doug Aldrich in 2005 as well that became the E651 Artist Edition.

Big fan of Viv but not a fan of Engl at all, no aggression in the tone, Ive seen the clips and heard both albums - somebody give Viv a Jose or Cameron!

The Dimarzio SD is in the bridge of his Les Paul signature model. 59 reissue's in his old Black Les Paul. Most of his other Pauls have Dimarzio Super3's in the bridge.

The solo in "Last in Line" has always blown my mind. Self taught player and such an ear for what works!

Had no idea, thanks. Not that nowadays pickups sound anything like 80's counterparts (same models included), but good to know.

I think Phil Collin uses the Super 3. I was under the impression that Vivian had been using Duncan 59s for the last decade with Def Leppard. I could be wrong though...
