To reproduce Ah Via Musicom live, EJ pairs new signature semi-hollow Strats with much of his 1990 rig—and a clever new way to make his Echoplexes roadworthy.

Johnson’s also revisiting his Ah Via Musicom-era pedalboards for this tour. Most of what’s on this board are custom-made switchers for his four amps. There’s also a loop box for the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, which Johnson regularly taps in and out of his clean rhythm.
