Patrick Stump Runs Through His Rig with Premier Guitar


Premier Guitar recently caught up with the guys in Fall Out Boy during a tour stop just outside of Nashville, and frontman Patrick Stump walked them through all his gear, including his signature Stump-O-Matic guitar.

“When I had this designed, I really was going for something that was a Swiss Army knife,” Stump said.  ”I wanted something that could accomplish everything. I have a big collection of vintage guitars, and it’s really fun to play around with them, but on stage, on a tour, I want something that is consistent and easy.”

Learn more about what Stump plays live in the video below.

Gretsch-i-tude! Acoustic Guitar Highlights the Jim Dandy


Jim Dandy Flat Top

Acoustic Guitar magazine highlights the new Gretsch Roots Jim Dandy Flat Top guitar in its May issue.

The article first gives a brief rundown of some of the artists who have played Gretsch—from Brian Setzer to George Harrison to Neil Young to Stephen Stills— before diving into the Jim Dandy, which is modeled on the Gretsch Rex that was produced from the 1930s to the ’50s.

“The main difference between this and the original is that this one has an adjustable truss rod, and it has X-bracing so it actually sounds like a guitar,” said Mike Lewis, who developed the new Gretsch Roots Collection.

To read the full piece, pick up the May 2014 issue or sign up for a digital version here.
