Teppei Teranishi: “I used to play a black Les Paul Custom a lot, which was my road guitar; that got stolen, unfortunately. This particular guitar is actually the first kind of nicer guitar I bought way back in the day. And so I babied that when I got it – I took it out for a little bit, and I was like, ‘I don’t want this thing to get ruined on the road.’ “And so it’s been hiding for years and years. I’d bring it to studio sessions for recording, and I used it quite a bit on the first few records, up until The Artist In The Ambulance, and then the latest one as well. I believe it’s got DiMarzio Super Distortions, and they were just original with the guitar when I bought it.”more
"On his frequent tours, Walker always takes along a ’72 Les Paul, two newer Firebirds, a ’60s Les Paul Junior, an EB-3 bass, an '80 EDS-1275, and a ’62 Hummingbird. Though Walker says he began his collection by buying and selling various guitars, his producing job means he no longer has to sell any." - excerpt from Gibson interview.more
