Moon Tooth's Nick Lee
The "aggressive progressive" guitarist chases "peanut-butter tone" with a pair of Vigiers, some fine-tuned drives, drifting delays, and ping-ponging pitch shifters.
The jazz-trio chameleon uses handcrafted guitars and a self-restricted, condensed pedal playground to cover bass, keys, and a disintegrating computer.
A Guild hollowbody stuffed with undies? A wooden slide? Dinky, about-to-burst, plywood combos? All these "left" turns fuel this Wood Brothers' solo journey.
Aaron Lee Tasjan
The Nashvillian's interstellar pop rock soars on the backs of a futuristic 12-string, a Gibson-Fender hybrid, and a "new" pedal that makes "old" sounds.
Starcrawler's Henri Cash

Whiskey Myer's John Jeffers
See how a handful of Gibsons and AC30 stacks add up to a Texas-sized tone.
