Halestorm invited Premier Guitar to their secret rehearsal lair in Nashville, where, surrounded by walls of speakers and drenched in seizure-inspiring lights, Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger took a break to geek out over some spectacular gear. Hale with white-on-white Gibsons and Marshalls, Hottinger covering every sonic combination, the Grammy-winning rockers dished the dirt on their two-guitar assault.
Lzzy Hale’s Gear
Undoubtedly, Hale’s No. 1 is her 2014 Lzzy Hale Signature Explorer with Gibson ’57 Classic pickups, an ebony fretboard featuring big block inlays, and a bound body. This sexy spaceship of a guitar is cloud white with gold hardware and is tuned to dropped-D. Perhaps equally cool is her 2014 Gibson EDS-1275 doubleneck, also with ’57 Classics. This 12-string combines a standard SG neck up top with a baritone to bring the thunder down under. Lastly is a stock 2009 Joan Jett Signature Melody Maker. All are strung with Dunlop Nickel Wound Light/Heavy.
Hale is a no-nonsense woman, happy with the simple things, like a 2013 Marshall JCM800 special made for Lzzy in her signature white and gold. The Marshall drives two matching white 1960 Vintage 4x12 cabs. As a backup she keeps a 2013 Marshall JCM800 at the ready.
