Rig Rundown: Blackberry Smoke
April 15, 2015
The Southern rockers take no prisoners with their twin-guitar attack.
Keeping it in the Gibson family, Jackson also uses a recently made Firebird with a ceramic 495R mini humbucker in the neck and ceramic 495T mini humbucker in the bridge.
Premier Guitar hung with Charlie Starr and Paul Jackson of Blackberry Smoke just a few hours before they blew the roof off of Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The boys shared their recipe for Southern rock tone that’s as thick as grits and gravy. Special thanks to the band’s tech, David “Doc” Oswalt, for details.
