Watch Stone Sour’s Christian Martucci Give A Rundown of his Charvel Gear

Posted on July 25th, 2017 by Chrissy Mauck

Stone Sour guitarist Christian Martucci is currently out on the road in support of fresh album Hydrograd, which debuted at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 and features hit track “Song # 3.”  During one of his recent tour stops, Martucci allowed Charvel the unique opportunity of heading sidestage for a close look at his touring rig.

In the video from that visit (available below), Martucci shows off his road case, which just so happens to be loaded with Charvel guitars  — from a Jake E Lee signature guitar to an array of customized USA Select guitars.

“I started playing guitar around 1985, and my favorite guitar players at the time and even still to this day were guys like Warren DeMartini and Jake E Lee so Charvel was like the goal,” says Martucci.

As well as explaining what drew him to the Charvel brand, Martucci also gives a quick rundown of the features of each guitar, shares info about his tuning setups and details how he uses each one live or in the studio.

While out on the Raven tour with Steven Wilson, Guthrie Govan has been wielding a unique Charvel guitar.

Luckily for those that haven’t been able to see Govan live on stage, the noted guitarist and teacher took Premier Guitar backstage to run through his gear.

When talking about his Charvel prototype, Govan cites its “hilariously stable” neck, “massive steel frets” and custom pickups.

Check out the video after the jump and visit Wilson’s official website for tour dates. (more…)
