The guitarist/producer reveals how an EHX Pitch Fork downsized his touring guitar boat, and admits the difficulties of cherry-picking stomps for the band's spiraling, atmospheric odysseys.

Chris Teti RR-2

While recording a band at his Silver Bullet Studios and hearing the guitarist’s Tele Deluxe through his own Marshall JMP, Teti knew he needed to acquire a dual-humbucker T. He scooped the above Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe (finished in shoreline gold) and put some major time into overhauling the axe into his No. 1. He swapped out the standard CS1 and 2 pickups for Seymour Duncan Sentient and Nazgul and replaced the barrel-style bridge with a more comfortable stainless-steel-saddle bridge (alleviating the string posts cutting into his picking hand). Currently working on TWIABP’s fourth LP, this one has spent the most time in Chris’ hands. This champagne-esque number uses Ernie Ball Power Slinkys (.011 –.048).
