St. Paul & the Broken Bones’ Browan Lollar
The seven-piece soul band based out of Birmingham, Alabama, only needed one guitarist to cover everything from Stax soul to Parliament funk-rock. Browan Lollar used his cherry red Gibson Memphis ES-335 (“my favorite guitar on earth”) and a Reverend Gil Parris II. “It's versatile and dependable—it’s like having a Les Paul-Tele hybrid,” Lollar says.
