A Japanese Strat, Fender Bassman tones from a Kemper, and a whole lot of distortion help Awolnation’s lead 6-stringer recreate unconventional guitar tones onstage.

Zach Irons’ main live guitar is a lefty Japanese Stratocaster with handpainted fingernail polish that Irons applied himself. His grandmother bought it for him online three years ago. Irons is right-handed but he plays guitar left-handed. Irons started out playing drums before switching to guitar, and he says finding notes and chords on the neck with his dominant hand worked better for him. Irons uses Ernie Ball (.010–0.46) strings and Dunlop medium picks.
