Go inside his impressive tone bunker, fortified with silver 7-string ESP sig models, 21st-century Fishman pickups, and stacks of 5150 and JCM800 disciples.

Facing a mandatory shelter-in-place ordinance to limit the spread of COVID-19, PG enacted a hybrid approach to filming and producing Rig Rundowns. This is the 22nd video in that format, and we stand behind the final product.

The Unearth axeman opens up about designing his signature ESP 7-string, pushing into the 21st century with “powered” pickups, and rocking in a world of 5150 and 800 descendants.
