Rig Rundown: 311 [2017]

Spend an hour with the funk-punk rockers as they go over all the PRS and Gibson 6-strings, Warwick bass gear, and piles of pedals that stir up their tone.

Frontman/guitarist Nick Hexum’s gear lust started when he was 14 and traveling with his dad to a camping trip in Canada where they found a 1963 Gibson Les Paul goldtop in a pawn shop. Sadly, the guitar no longer exists—snapped neck—but his love for Les Pauls is still there. He uses this natural Gibson Les Paul on most of the band’s early work like “Down” and “Homebrew.” All of his guitars take Ernie Ball Slinky .011–.048 strings.
