So I ended up getting a Gibson chocolate SG. And I would plug it into my father's Sony reel-to-reel tape recorder. And I would slap on the echo, and all the sudden I was getting the sound that I was looking for. I started getting the riffs. I was able to play the riffs on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. And I was able to play the riffs from Deep Purple's Machine Head and Fireball. They were comin' out, and it was like, "OK, I get it. I needed an electric guitar."
So from there I joined the Runaways with my Gibson SG.

And I was going through New York one day and I found this black Explorer, Hamer. The serial number on it was 0048. And I ended up buying it. And I loved it. And that became my Lita guitar. Then I went to Thoroughbred Music in New York City, and they gave me, off the wall, the white one. The white duplicate. And the serial number on that is 0012.
And I still have those guitars today. And they're wicked. And they don't make them like that anymore. They have weight to them. They're really, really heavy guitars. Whereas now, if you were to pick up an Explorer, it's like they're made out of frickin' drywall or something.

Nick Bowcott turned me on to the DSL 100. And they are probably the most equivalent to the JCM800s. And I love it. I love the DSLs. They're just big, beefy. You get that JCM800 hiss out of them when you crank the pre-amp on it. And they sing! You can hold and sustain the note for a week. They're one of my favorite amps that I've played in years and years.

I have recording devices that I use, like a good little recording device is Amplitube, that you can plug into your laptop, because it's mobile. You can take it with you on the road, you can throw it in your bag. It's really easy to use. I love it. Have you used an Amplitube before? [Editor’s note: Lita is referring to the iRig with Amplitube.]
Guitar.com: No, I haven't. I’d like to give it a try though.
Ford: It's a plug-in for a recording program, on your laptop. It's a little cord, and you plug it into your laptop, and then it has this little cigar-shaped thing. It's got a little switch on it, and you turn it on, and that's pretty much your amplifier. And then from there you plug your guitar into this cigar-looking thing. And then up pops Amplitube on your laptop.
Then you've got all your drum sounds, you've got all your guitar pedals, your guitar amps, everything pops up, and you can just pick and choose and get the sound you want. It's a pretty cool little thing. And it's little, so, like I said, you can throw it in your bag and take it with you if you're going on the road, or traveling. You can record, or if you want to just jam along with something, you can do either or.
It's really cool. You can buy it online, it's like fifty-nine bucks. And it's fun. Once you plug it in, you're like stuck to your laptop because it's got so many different sounds, and different things you can do with it. It's a brand new toy, you know.
When I first got it I was just stuck to my computer. My manager called me and he said, "Are you using your Amplitube?" And I said, "Yes." He calls me back later that day and says "What are you doing now?" And I say, "I'm still on this fucking Amplitube! I can't put it down!" So I've had a lot of fun with it.
