Rig Rundown: Animals as Leaders [2017]

Investigate how progressive rockers Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes weave emotive jams with 16 strings, both tube heads and digital amp modelers, and a stockpile of stomps.

This custom build by Ola Strandberg started Tosin down the alternative-body, ergonomic-design path. It’s a baritone 8-string that has the two beefy strings extended past the traditional nut. It was the eighth guitar Ola ever built and was finished in 2013.
