Your video will begin in 5
The amazing John 5 joined Hard Rock historian Jeff Nolan for a deep dive into guitar nerditry. In this video, he plays Jimi Hendrix’s SG Custom, Brian Jones’s iconic Vox Mk. III “Teardrop”, Paul Kossoff’s ’57 Les Paul Jr., Paul Stanley’s Ibanez Iceman, the ’58 Les Paul from the cover of the Stones’ live classic ‘Get You Ya Ya’s Out’, Jason Becker’s Peavey “Numbers” guitar, Duane Allman’s Telecaster (the one he used on Wilson Pickett’s “Hey Jude”) and John’s own 1967 Telecaster Custom. This one was a labor of love. Hope you enjoy it.

FOR GUITAR NERDS ONLY: The gear used was a Valvetrain 416 head and 1x12 cabinet ( When you hear a gain pedal, it’s an Analogman Beano Boost ( . An Origin Effects Cali76 compressor was used at its most subtle setting to even things out for the recording. We used a Shure SM57 straight into the camera input.
All the instruments were professionally teched by master luthier Kip Elder of Starr Guitars (
