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.

Influenced by Fishbone’s Norwood Fisher who rocked Warwick in the ’90s, a young Aaron “P-Nut” Wills loved how Norwood’s sound “was greasy, distorted, funky, and at the same time, the bass looked like it had just been freshly cut from a tree,” and he’s been popping and rocking ever since on Warwicks. This particular 5-string is from his signature series and based on the Streamer II body that Wills first played decades earlier. One request on the body design is that they sandwiched purpleheart in between to slabs of Australian blackwood burl (top) and afzelia (back). It comes stock with MEC pickups and preamp, but P-Nut has upgraded with a Seymour Duncan Music Man humbucker and a slanted Seymour Duncan Apollo.
