Music Radar Catches Up With Vintage Trouble’s Nalle Colt

Posted:

Music Radar recently caught up with Vintage Trouble’s Nalle Colt to discuss his new custom-built Gretsch guitar and “high-voltage tone.”

High-voltage tone is a must for the the trio these days as they spent the last few months opening for AC/DC across Europe and North America, where they played in front of tens of thousands of fans.

And according to his interview with MR, Colt couldn’t be more stoked with the way his unique Gretsch has performed on tour.

“Right after I talked to you [in 2013] and we got off the Who tour, I went back to the States and Gretsch approached me about making a guitar and, to be honest with you, I was a little like, ‘Well, I don’t know, I’ve always been a Gibson Les Paul guy,’” he told MR. “But they sat me down with Steve Stern at the Gretsch Custom Shop in California, and I explained what I wanted and I’m really proud of it. It came out incredible.

“We made a guitar based on a ’54 Gretsch Duo Jet, and it’s kind of a hybrid of a Les Paul and a Gretsch. It’s actually my main guitar on this tour … and I also used it pretty much for 99 percent of every song that you hear on the new album. It’s holding up really well. It’s a super-tough guitar to play live and I love it. It’s got everything I wanted, from growl to an old Chuck Berry-style kind of hollow body vibe.”

Vintage Trouble Runs by Leno

Posted:


Vintage Trouble’s energetic bluesy rock recently came through the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the Hollywood-based band performed a raucous version of the track “Run Like the River,” which is featured on a deluxe edition of their debut full-length album The Bomb Shelter Sessions.

In true Vintage Trouble fashion, the band was supremely tight and frontman Ty Taylor even ran up through the audience to encourage the crowd to sing along.

Watch Vintage Trouble in action below and visit their official website for a list of tour dates.
