Rig Rundown: Los Straitjackets
The masked guitarists demonstrate how a pedal-less setup is the right fit for their instrumental brand of surf rock.
Eddie Angel rocks a sparkly DiPinto Galaxie 4 that houses four single-coil DiPinto pickups. It’s nearly identical to Townson’s guitar with the exception of the five-position switch on the upper bout. Angel spends nearly the entire show on the bridge pickup and strings up his guitar with a hefty set of Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings (.011-.048).
