Rig Rundown: Johnny Hiland

One of Nashville’s hottest pickers demonstrates how he moves from snappy twang licks to ’80s rock and more.

This is Hiland’s 2010 Music Man Silhouette that also features the Six Shooter pickups and custom wiring harness. Between the middle and neck pickups sits a RunBarr by Easy Roll Guitar Methods. It acts as a pickguard in order to help your picking technique on speed picking and sweep arpeggios. Each of Hiland’s guitars are strung with Elixir Nanoweb (.009–.042) strings.
