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.

“I don’t know why this became my current No. 1, but it just is,” says LaLonde about his sunburst Fender American Deluxe Strat. “Something about this guitar just makes it sound amazing.” In addition to being his go-to road warrior, he used it quite a bit in the studio to record Primus’ new album, The Desaturating Seven. All of his 6-strings take Dunlop .009–.046 strings. His guitars are typically tuned to standard, but if Larry is feeling heavy, he’ll tune down to dropped-D.
