Rig Rundown: Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit

“Cooder-casters,” boutique amps, classic Gibsons, and a healthy amount of pedals give fire to Isbell’s brand of Southern-bred rock.

Isbell’s guitar tech, Michael Bethancourt, designed a bulletproof rig that is not only versatile, but also powerful. All of Isbell’s pedals are housed in drawers in his rack and the first one contains an Analog Man Sun Lion—a four-knob compressor—Origin Effects SlideRIG, and a Greer Amps Lightspeed Organic Overdrive. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power ISO 5 powers this drawer.

Special thanks to Tech Michael Bethancourt for taking PG through the nuts and bolts.
