Rig Rundown: Nine Inch Nails

Robin Finck and Alessandro Cortini create the perfect drug for NIN fans with a bevy of heavy-hitting custom guitars and basses and a high-tech hybrid setup that marries digital with analog.

This is the first Les Paul that Robin Finck ever purchased, via hard-earned lawn mowing money. He bought the Colors Edition model new in 1990 and it was the only guitar he had. The fretboard was damaged severely and separated from the neck at one point, but Finck glued it back together. The pickup selectors on all of Finck’s Les Pauls are moved to the bottom near the volume and tone controls.
