Rig Rundown: Judas Priest

Rig Rundown - Judas Priest

Watch the pioneering British heavy metal band share the stories and secrets behind the gear that’s banged heads for 50 years and sold over 50 million records.

This 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom originally sported a black finish, but Richie Faulkner had Gibson refinish it in white when he started with Priest. This model keeps the mahogany body as his other axes but uses EMG 81/85 pickups.
