As the band’s lone guitarist, Jade has two duties: fill a large sonic space and run wild during the band’s shows. He’s been doing that for years thanks to this back-friendly Gibson Les Paul Studio. That being said, this Studio is heavier than most and it’s his main one because it was the best out of his litter of a dozen black Studios. (Jade jokingly questions if it’s made of solid ebony, but feels the guitar’s density is what gives the instrument its undeniable live tone that’s resonant and very warm.) Aside from the upgrade on the tuners and the Crash Love logo by the bridge, this 6-string is all stock and typically goes to stage in tuned down a half step. All of his guitars use Ernie Ball Slinky .010–.046 strings and he plays with Dunlop Tortex .60 mm picks.
