The Warren DeMartini Signature San Dimas Models were designed to the Ratt guitarist’s demanding specifications and built to be no-nonsense, high-performance tone machines. The Warren DeMartini consists of three guitars with the same basic platform, but three different graphics to choose from. The platform is an Alder body and the bolt-on neck is maple with 22 jumbo frets. The alder through the Marshall gives his sound that characteristic upper-mid honkiness. (You can rest assured that, our replicated guitar is featured maple neck and fingerboard, alder body.)
Warren Justin DeMartini (born April 10, 1963), nicknamed Torch, is the lead guitarist for Ratt, a popular American band during the mid-to-late 1980s Los Angeles glam metal scene. Contents 1 Early life, 2 Ratt, 3 Post-Ratt, 4 Influences, 5 Technique, 6 Discography 6.1 Ratt, 6.2 Solo, , 7 References, 8 External links, Early life edit: DeMartini was born on April 10, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois, the youngest of six children. The family later relocated to San Diego, California. He became interested in rock music due to the influence of his older brothers Bernard and James, whose band rehearsed in the family basement. DeMartini’s grandmother was also a musician of note, playing piano accompaniment to silent movies in Preston, Minnesota. DeMartini’s mother bought him a guitar at his request when he was seven years of age. As he struggled early on learning to play it, he became frustrated and smashed the instrument as he had seen Pete Townshend of The Who do onstage. His mother, angered, refused to buy a replacement. At age 15, he received enough money for Christmas to purchase a new electric guitar. He took lessons to learn basic guitar technique, learned quickly, and formed a band called The Plague. Later he formed another band known as Aircraft. By 1979, he played his first concert in front of a small crowd at San Diego’s La Jolla High School. By this time he was emerging as one of the San Diego area’s most talented and sought-after young guitar players. The first year he signed up, he won “Best New Guitar Player in San Diego” at Guitar Trader on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. He graduated from high school in 1981. DeMartini began taking classes at a local college, but in the first semester was invited up to Los Angeles to join Mickey Ratt; the band that would eventually become the highly successful 1980s metal band, Ratt. Ratt edit: Main article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratt DeMartini replaced Jake E. Lee in the band, who had recently been hired by Ozzy Osbourne. DeMartini was at one point the roommate of Lee, and each greatly influenced the other’s styles. DeMartini’s lead guitar became one of Ratt’s most recognizable aspects, and he would co-write several of the band’s best known songs, including “Round and Round”, “Lay It Down”, “Dance”, and “Way Cool Jr.”. Ratt would ultimately become one of the top-selling and most popular glam metal acts of the decade, issuing four consecutive platinum albums and one EP in the 1980s before disbanding in February 1992. Post-Ratt edit: After Ratt broke up, DeMartini had a short stint with the band Dokken before briefly becoming a touring guitarist for hard rock band Whitesnake in 1994. After that, he released two solo projects; the EP, Surf’s Up! in 1995, and his only full-length album to date, Crazy Enough To Sing To You in 1996. Ratt re-united in 1996 and released two albums, Collage in July 1997, and a self-titled album in July 1999, which was a critical and commercial failure. In 2003, DeMartini was hired to replace guitarist Doug Aldrich in the band Dio but after several rehearsals he decided to leave the band due to musical differences with band leader Ronnie James Dio. Ratt reformed again in 2007 and began a tour in the summer of that year. Influences edit: Over the years, DeMartini has cited many legendary guitarists or other musicians as his primary musical influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend, Robbin Crosby, Michael Schenker, Steve Lukather, Uli Roth, Joe Walsh, Jake E. Lee, Joe Perry, Tommy Bolin, Miles Davis, Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch and Randy Rhoads. According to Allmusic, Demartini was heavily influenced by Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick as a teenager. Technique edit: DeMartini has often been praised for his technique and ability. Website Xtreme Musician labeled him as one of the most under-rated guitarists of his era. His playing often incorporates 4 note per string passages, which is still fairly unorthodox and some chromatic runs give DeMartini an almost jazz fusion sound for some solos. Along with that, his playing includes fast minor scales and wide vibrato. Warren uses finger vibrato, similar in style to George Lynch and Greg Howe. This technique features moving the finger/wrist rapidly back and forth along the length of the string to alter the pitch (like a violinist), as opposed to bending the string.

I remember the Guitar Player magazine with Warren DeMartini on the cover – because it never arrived. I remember looking forward to it, I remember seeing it in guitar stores, but it never arrived at my house even though I was a subscriber. That’s how guitar-crazy the ’80s were: someone at the post office stole my magazine!
I’ve always been curious about that particular issue, so as a fan of Warren’s playing, I picked up a copy of that issue (April 1987) on eBay. The interview is…eh…but has some decent info. Following are the tone parts. (It looks like Warren and Robbin Crosby were first interviewed by Guitar Player for the August 1984 issue, after Out of the Cellar but before Invasion of Your Privacy, which of course had “Lay it Down.”)
While reading, bear in mind that Warren was a big fan of George Lynch. And if you listen to Warren’s Ratt solos with that in mind, you can hear some George licks – and even some George tone.

Sound: The Warren Demartini signature pickup, or Rattus Tonus Maximus (RTM). My trusted local guitar shop technician recommended this pickup to me. I was searching for a pickup that would take my tone in a unique direction. The guitar I installed the RTM in was my beat up classic shaped white “V” made of mahogany with a bolt on maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and double locking Floyd Rose tremolo. The pickups that I previously installed in the bridge were a Seymour Duncan (SD) JB, SD Screamin’ Demon, SD Distortion, DiMarzio X2N, EMG Alexi Laiho, and an EMG 81. I used the SD pickups and DiMarzio with a SD 59 in the neck, an EMG hz with the Alexi Laiho, and an EMG 85 with the 81. The signal chain starts with my guitar, then my Line 6 G30 wireless unit, to my 10-band MXR EQ, to my Bugera 333XL or Peavey 5150, to my two 4×12 Celestion GT75 cabinets. I have been fighting a losing battle to balance my tone. I have been mixing and matching pickups in the afore mentioned guitar for years to get a tone that has great output, presence, eq, and response to my playing style. I play mostly lead guitar on a standard tuned instrument. Unfortunately for my wallet, this is the least imperfect pickup I have found to compliment my fingers. At 175 USD it is relatively expensive. The low end response on the pickup is average. I would not recommend it for rhythm specific applications without the proper eqing. The highs and mids are where the RTM sets itself apart from the other pickups I have tried. They are bold and pronounced without being harsh or uncontrollable. The 17.2 ohms of D.C. Resistance, Alnico 2 magnets, and single coaxial output created a balanced bright tone in my mahogany guitar. People playing alone, with drop tuned guitars in a bedroom, will not be able to appreciate the tones it can produce because it cuts through the mix very well. In a full band situation, especially with two or more guitarists, the RTM cuts through without me having to ruin my tone by turning my mids and highs up to an unacceptable level in a less appropriate place in the signal chain. It excels in the crunch and lead departments under moderate to high gain stages. I would recommend the clean tones for someone who wants to hear individual notes ringing within a chord rather than a thick blended chord of 3 or 4 strings.
