Rig Rundown: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

One of Americana’s rising stars (and a son of an outlaw legend) goes deep on his vintage Gibson, using a dual-amp setup, and why he eschews most pedals.

For acoustics, Lukas Nelson goes with his Gibson Bob Dylan SJ-200 Player’s Edition with an L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup. The SJ stays strung with DR Strings (.013–.017–.026–.034–.045–.056). (His famous outlaw father mistakenly took the Jumbo for a charity guitar and signed it on his bus while Lukas was away.)
