Billy Strings is one of the hottest emerging guitar players in the jamgrass/folk-rock scene at the moment. So it’s not much of a surprise than fans and fellow guitarists are wanting to know exactly what kind of arsenal the young musician uses on stage each night.
Strings is the latest notable musician to star in his own episode of Rig Rundown, the online video series produced by Premier Guitar which gives fans an up-close look at the instruments and live gear used by today’s top guitar and bass players. The guitar-based media outlet caught up with Strings ahead of one of his recent performances at the famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, where Strings obliged the cameras by showing the main axe and effects pedals which he uses to wow audiences night in and night out.
Strings begins the interview by showing off the main instruments he uses throughout his performances with the Preston Thompson handmade acoustic/electric guitar before turning the spotlight to his pedalboard. Watch the entire gear-focused interview with Strings on stage at The Ryman below.
