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.

On one or two songs a night Isbell pulls out this 2015 Martin D-28 12-string. Although not a big fan of 12-strings in general, Isbell uses this live to emulate a “Nashville”-tuned guitar that he uses in the studio.

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