We get the lowdown on the former CCR frontman’s rather surprising road gear (including his vintage Les Pauls and rare “bat guitar”), and talk to son and co-guitarist Shane Fogerty about his setup.

John Fogerty’s main road guitar is a 1970 Gibson Les Paul goldtop with a wraparound bridge and its original P-90 pickups that really punch through the mix.

On May 3, 2015, John Fogerty’s tech, Dave Whiston, and son/co-guitarist Shane Fogerty hung with PG to talk gear before the band’s sold-out show at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel in Nashville.

Special thanks to Dave Whiston for details.
