Guided By Voices’ Doug Gillard

The band’s lead guitarist since 1997, Doug Gillard spends most of his time playing this 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with a mid-’70s DiMarzio Super 2 humbucker in the bridge and an unknown brand humbucker in the neck. He told us in our Rig Rundown that the guitar is strung with D'Addario XL .011–.052 strings.
