Gogol Bordello’s Boris Pelekh
The Russian-born guitarist—who was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music at the age of 17—was on the move all set with his gypsy-punk compadres and kept true to his Reverend Bayonet RA HC. Boris said this about this guitar: “Ken Haas and I were very meticulous about finding the right guitar for my playing style and one that really suits the music of Gogol Bordello. I went with the Bayonet because it has a set neck, solidbody setup with a humbucker in the bridge and a noiseless P-90 in the neck. Using these two specific pickups both in combination and standalone provides me the tonal range to cover all the spectrums of the sound that lights up the Gogol Bordello party.”
