Rig Rundown - Unknown Hinson


PG's Chris Kies is on location in Des Moines, IA, at Wooly's where he catches up with the king of country western troubadours Unknown Hinson. In this segment, the Kang talks about his signature Reverend Guitar, using the Fender Super-Sonic 100 head and matching cabinet, Vox ValveTronix digital effects process, and what's his ideal wumern.

Hinson brings a duo of his Reverend signature model guitars on the road with him. The guitar is based off of the Reverend 290 Club King, a semi-hollow guitar with two P-90 pickups, Bass Contour control, maple neck and fretboard with bat inlay, and locking tuners. The two guitars are identical other than the headstock veneer. Hinson says he prefers the P-90s because they can clean up and twang or get fat for more rock tones.

He plugs into a Fender Super-Sonic 100 head and 2x12 cabinet.

For pedals, Hinson keeps it simple with a Vox ToneLab LE. He uses it as a Volume pedal as well as chorus, overdrive, and tremolo. He prefers this unit because it's all-in-one and easy to travel with.
