When we sat down to talk with legendary guitarist Steve Hunter about his career and his life, we also asked him about the gear he uses.

Custom Pickups – Seymour Duncan

Seymour Duncan also offers meticulous plans/notes kept on file for if someone else wants to order them.

Strings – Rotosound

9s and 10s. Depending on the project. But Rotosound’s strings give off a nice warm tone and break in easily.

Amps – Fender ’65 reissues/Marshall/ProTools

The amp depends on the project. And sometimes ProTools comes in handy the most with its amp modeling. On the subject of if you can make a Marshall sound clean, that answer is a big “yes”!

Hammers

Strats vs. Humbuckers. It depends on the project.

Picks – Fender Medium

Again, depends on the sound. But generally, a medium for its sound. Though sometimes a metal pick is preferable though they are harder to find.

Be sure to listen to the interview for all details on Steve’s gear.
