Rig Rundown: Nick Perri

The retro rocker opens up about retrofitting reissues, returning to the JTM45s, and finding the piece of gear that changed his life.

Impressing his classic-rock adoration onto his young daughter, Perri let her name this 2019 Gibson Custom 1964 SG Standard Reissue after her favorite Cream song, which happens to be “Cat’s Squirrel” off their debut album Fresh Cream. It also has the Tyson Tone Precious & Grace PAFs, Sprague caps, Pigtail bridge, and he ditched the original Vibrola tailpiece for a Bigsby B7 because he didn’t like the shallow break angle off the bridge.  

Special thanks to Derek Brad for additional video footage.
