Eagles of Death Metal’s Dave Catching

Prolific desert-rock producer and EODM lead guitarist Dave Catching gives the crowd a good look at his Echopark Albert Flying V. Catching quickly became friends with luthier Gabriel Currie who opened his Echopark Guitars shop across from the band’s rehearsal studio. Currie, a big fan of the guitarist and his many bands, built a replica of a 1958 Gibson Flying V that Catching uses throughout most EODM sets because “it plays perfect and never goes out of tune.” He strings up all his guitars with Ernie Ball Slinkys .010–0.48. Also, he and Hughes play the same open-G tuning (G–G–D–G–B–D) all night. To learn more about Albert and the rest of Catching’s gear, click here.
