Guitarist and frontman Leigh Kakaty from Michigan rock bands Pop Evil has spoken to Gibson.com about his love of Gibson guitars.
Kakaty writes on a Hummingbird and when it comes top playing live it’s all about the Les Paul.
“They scream rock and roll, “ he says. “I love the wood and the tones. The thing I love is that sometimes when you travel and play as much as I do, the guitar has to take a beating. Sometimes it’s freezing cold or extremely hot, and the thing with my Gibson is that out of all the years it’s been beat up, it still plays like it’s brand new. Actually, in my opinion, Gibsons actually get better the older they get. They sound even richer. Mine’s been through the Pop Evil battle, and it’s been through the wars with me every night trying to win over fans. It’s hard to explain that comfort zone of having a Gibson for me.”
