As promised, here's my biggest guitars update in several years! You may have seen some of the new stuff periodically added to the website over the past few days (I didn't add everything all at once), but it's officially done now. Here are some of the highlights:
-All "active touring use" guitars have been updated, and are current as of the iHeartRadio album release show on May 22nd. Some guitars have changed rigs/tunings, some are no longer in use as of this tour, and some have returned after absences. I'll admit that I'm making educated guesses on a few of the backup guitars (particularly for Brad), but I'm fairly confident that all of this information is correct.
-New Brad stuff: A Jazzmaster from the One More Light recording sessions, a new backup PRS that I'd never seen before, and a couple oddities - one of Chester's D'Angelico guitars (from rehearsals), and a random acoustic guitar from a promo performance in New York.
-New Mike stuff: Nothing! Mike's guitar arsenal doesn't seem to have changed at all for this album, other than a few guitars being moved around.
-New Chester stuff: Chester is now a D'Angelico Guitars artist, and is playing two (soon to be three, probably) of their DC models on tour for "Battle Symphony." There's also a random Tanglewood acoustic guitar he's been seen with a couple times recently.
-New Misc. Guitars stuff: "Leave Out All the Rest" is back in the set for the first time in several years, and Phoenix is now playing Mike's SG's on it! There are also new pictures of Phoenix and Joe playing Takamine acoustic guitars.
Now that this is out of the way, back to tabbing and recording. Yaaaaaay!
