Bad Religion’s Mike Dimkich

Just like Baker, Dimkich goes old school by rocking a 1958 Gibson Les Paul Junior that is all stock, aside from a refinish and tuners. He loves the raw sound of a P-90 because “it’s probably recorded more classic rock and roll records than folks would ever imagine and has been on most classic punk albums—NY Dolls, Sex Pistols, the Clash, 999, the Avengers—plus the single pickup and minimal controls makes a guy's life far easier in the heat of battle onstage (laughs)!”
