We catch up with the virtuoso pair to talk about gear, three-string guitars, and how they dial in their legendary tones.
Gilbert has been an Ibanez artist since his teens. Today, his No. 1 is this new signature Ibanez FRM150 featuring a DiMarzio Air Classic Bridge, DiMarzio Area 67 (middle), and DiMarzio Air Classic Neck. He currently uses Ernie Ball RPS (.009–.042) strings, but Gilbert anticipates going back to .010s as the tour progresses.
