The guitars, amps, and effects used by Walter Becker and Jon Herington on Steely Dan''s 2011 tour.

"Jon Heringtonуs main guitar is a Gibson Custom Shop ES-336 loaded with J.M Rolph pickups. Since Herington likes to ride the volume knob during gigs, he modded the electronics so that the pickup selector switch and bridge volume knob changed places and he made that knob a master volume. The knob in between those is a dummy knob while the remaining two are tone controls. He strings all of his guitars with Ernie Ball .10п.46 strings and he keeps the truss rod cover off so he can make adjustments quickly. "
