The Nashville-based rockers are on a tear with their Neil Young-meets-Tom Petty jams. Find out what vibey gear, classic combos, and boutique stomps power their stage shows.
Guitar-slinging assassin Daniel Donato joined the band this year as lead guitarist and only needed this Fender Custom Shop ’63 Telecaster to rock the Ryman. He’s swapped in a Glendale Guitars bridge plate because it allows him to emulate Don Rich by picking closer to the saddles for more dynamic playing and tones. Another upgrade he opted for was implementing Emerson saddles because they’re indestructible and help intonation issues. And he also dropped in a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups—a BG1400 neck pickup and an Antiquity I bridge model. Donato uses Ernie Ball Cobalt .010–.046 strings.
