While nearly all songs are in standard tuning, Zach uses a G&L ASAT Classic to tune to down half a step for the song "I Am". Also, the stock humbucker on the neck position was removed for a replacement lipstick pickup.

"And did we mention that it's a Tribute Series guitar? Yeah, that's right! The Lake Placid Blue beauty is all over the recordings and is also out with Jody on FOW's tour with Soul Asylum. Jody told us, "I need an axe with a rock solid neck for use onstage and the G&L Tribute Series ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ holds its tuning night after night without fail. This guitar is happening!""more
High Quality. Beautiful. Fun to play. And filled with one of Leo Fenders last innovations: the MFD (Magnetig Field Design) Pickup. A bassy high output PU with shining highs you never heard on a usual Fender PU.
Swamp Ash Body. Tobacco Burst. Maple Neck. 6 (!) Brass Saddles. USA made MFD PUs. Made in Indonesia.
I paid little attention to my father's favorite brand of guitar, until I learned of my top three favorite band's guitarist uses this brand almost exclusively (albeit the strat-variation model). Lets just say starting in 2011-12, I began taking a personal interest in them after repairing an odd, older model G&L type several years earlier. It has since become my tone-monster go-to jam/studio guitar (when I want tone but don't to hold a LP for more than 45 minutes)..
