The rising country star reveals which legendary picker recently built her a "Mary Kaye" Strat clone, as well as why she started painting guitars.
Lindsay Ell personally painted a guitar for each song on her 2017 album, The Project. Several of these guitars join her on tour and become a big part of her show. Betty Van Halen #1 is a Fender American Standard Strat that she uses each night on “Waiting On You,” Ell’s first single off The Project. All her guitars are strung with D’Addario EXL140 (.010–.052) or D’Addario NYXL (.010–.052). She plays with D’Addario Heavy (1.0 mm) picks.
