Premier Guitar – Rig Rundown – Khruangbin’s Mark Speer And Laura Lee

Reverb addict Mark Speer and badass bassist Laura Lee met with Premier Guitar’s John Bohlinger before their ultra-hip, sold-out show at Nashville’s Basement East. Speer and Lee took the crew through their non-conventional approach to nuevo-vintage tones. Mark Speer tours with a single guitar: his 2001 Fender Classic Series ’70s Stratocaster.

The strat is strung with…

They took PG through their mostly vintage, road-worn gear. In the studio, Parker Griggs digs into his cache of vintage 6-strings by Supro, Silvertone, and Harmony, but on tour, he gets it done with his 2013 Fender American Deluxe Strat with stock N3 Noiseless single-coil pickups. The original S-1 switch broke long ago, but Griggs never used it much anyway. Griggs goes with Ernie…
