Doug Gillard, Mark Shue, and Bobby Bare Jr. reveal how a few quirky vintage axes, some classic amps, and a few utilitarian pedals get the job done night after night.

For touring, Doug Gillard leaves his ’67 ES-330 and ’67 Jag at home, traveling with just two road axes. His No. 1 is a long-time favorite, a 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with a mid-’70s DiMarzio Super 2 humbucker in the bridge and an unknown brand humbucker in the neck. The LP stays strung with D'Addario XL .011–.052 strings.
