Rig Rundown: Primus' Larry LaLonde [2017]

Rig Rundown - Primus' Larry LaLonde [2017]

Try to wrap your head around all the weird noises, tones, and sound effects that “Ler” uses to keep up with Les Claypool.

His oldest guitar on this run was his longtime friend—a 1976 Fender Strat that has been modded to have American Special single-coils. In an interview he did with PG in 2011, he explained how his current No. 1 influenced the swap: The Sunburst has a [S-1] pushbutton for out-of-phase stuff and its hardware is just killer. That became my main guitar for playing live, and that’s how I ended up choosing those pickups for the ’76, too.”
