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.

Another main ride for the band’s current tour is this custom Fender Stratocaster that is decked out in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory colors because the band recorded an album as an ode to the Wilder film in 2014, so LaLonde commissioned Fender to build him some custom-painted Strats for the subsequent tour. This one sounded so good (it’s loaded with unknown DiMarzio single-coils) that he continues to use it on tour and in the studio.
