Steve Lukather was endorsing Rivera Amplification from 1995/1996 until early to mid 2002. https://web.archive.org/web/20011214065049/http://www.rivera.com/rivera.rog3.luke.html https://web.archive.org/web/20020213043630/http://rivera.com/prod_lukeseries.htm From his website: http://www.stevelukather.com/news-articles/2000/11/willie-g-moseley-steve-lukather.aspx Quote: Vintage Guitar: What gear did you use on Mindfields? Steve Lukather: My MusicMan, plus a few vintage things here and there, like a Les Paul on Mysterious ways, but I would also layer things with different guitars. MusicMan made me a great “bastard” guitar – it’s got an Eddie Van Halen body, a Luke neck, and DiMarzio single-coil pickups on it, Telecaster-style. My amp is one I designed with Paul Rivera, called a Bonehead. That’s the only amp I used on the whole record. It’s a three-channel amp, and we got a patent on the subwoofer system. I like a lot of low-end on a guitar. It’s really versatile; great clean sound, great mid-crunch, great full-on shred, and everything in between.more
"The Soldanos are SLO-100 Super Lead Overdrives. And I use the Rivera Bonehead to bring out low-end. I use the heads with VHT and Crest power amps. My cabinets are Marshalls with Celestion Vintage 30s. To my ear, I put them against the greenbacks, and the old greenbacks are cool for what they are, but for what I’m doing with my rig, these sound better." - Mick Mars Vintage Guitar Magazine - Article by Lisa Sharken This article originally appeared in VG‘s September 2009 issue.
