How “Hot for Teacher,” a homemade mic, and a B.B. King-inspired signature axe factor into a repertoire that mixes Queens of the Stone Age sizzle with modern pop hooks.

Bold covers require bold guitars, and if you’re gonna attempt to melt faces on Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher,” you need to fly on a Firebird. Gifted to her by Gibson in early 2019, Emily has really enjoyed the upper-neck access she can grab with the guitar’s offset body allowing her to nail the tapping intro of the 1984 classic. Another facet of the guitar she’s enjoyed is the fact it has mini humbuckers offering a different tone in the studio since most of her guitars have full ’buckers.
