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.
Shane Fogerty’s main guitar when touring with his dad is a stock 1996 Gibson Les Paul Custom that has Gibson Burstbucker pickups. The finish has been sanded from the back of the neck at his father’s request.
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.
