Rig Rundown: Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner
EMG Backstage recently caught up with Judas Priest guitar tech Adrian Vines to provide a tour of guitarist Richie Faulkner’s live rig. Included in the video (watch it below) are a number of gorgeous Gibson guitars, including a Randy Rhoads-esque 1974 Gibson Les Paul Custom and a Flying V crafted especially for Faulkner by Gibson Custom.
Vines also shows off the guitars’ idiosyncrasies, from tons of buckle damage to volume knobs that go to 11. Judas Priest are currently on their Epitaph World Tour.
