Rig Rundown: Silversun Pickups

The L.A. rockers explain how they weave and manipulate their boundless tones with some classic Gibson ’birds and a mix of tube power and digital modeling. Plus, we find out guitarist Brian Aubert’s secret weapon.

Here is the second guitar that Aubert ever bought—a 1965 Gibson non-reverse Firebird. Normally partial to the semi-hollows, he digs this ’bird because of the feel and how well the P-90s and solidbody construction handles all the crazy sounds he throws at it from night to night. This one has the honor of carrying Sean Connery’s name on its headstock.
