Rig Rundown: Doyle Bramhall II

The famed bluesman creates his soulful musical gumbo with a mixture of vintage gear, a few boutique toys, and a pile of pedals.

Doyle keeps his touring guitars to a minimum, spending the majority of his time on this ’64 Fender Strat. A trademark of his style is that he plays “upside down” with the thinner strings (usually D’Addario .011s) on top.
