The rising country star reveals which legendary picker recently built her a "Mary Kaye" Strat clone, as well as why she started painting guitars.

Ell runs her guitars into a Shure ULXD4Q quad-channel digital wireless system. From there, the signal hits a Dunlop 535Q wah, a J. Rockett Audio Archer Ikon, an Ernie Ball VP Jr volume pedal, an Xotic BB Preamp, an MXR Digital Reverb, a Dunlop EP103 Echoplex Delay, and a Boss DD-7 Digital Delay. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus provides the juice, while D’Addario’s Custom Series and American Stage Instrument Cables hold it all together.

These characteristics become the stuff of legend, passed on through the years via rumors and anecdotes in shops, forums, and community networks.
