    GILLIAN WELCH’S GUITARS AND GEAR

    • ACOUSTIC GUITAR: 1956 Gibson J-50. “I’ve played it exclusively since 1998. I’ve recorded with some other guitars also, but it’s all over this record.”
    • BANJO: 1925 Vega Whyte Laydie.
    • AMPLIFICATION: “Neither of our guitars have ever had pickups. I don’t want to be the person who drills a hole in a guitar and puts a pickup in it.” Onstage, Welch plays guitar into a Shure SM57 microphone. In the studio, she sings into a Neumann M49 and plays guitar into
      a Neumann M582.
    • STRINGS: D’Addario phosphor-bronze, medium gauge. “I started with lights at age eight and switched to mediums about the time I moved to Nashville, about 20 years ago.”
    • PICKS: “I have one tortoiseshell pick, and if I lose it I will sob uncontrollably. I’m just about to retire one, and I’m breaking in a new one. My tortoiseshell picks last me about seven years. I’m pretty easy on them. I get very attached to them. I still have the pick from Revelator. People give them to me because they know that I use them.”
    • CAPO: Kyser.

    Dave talks about a lot of gear in that Fretboard Journal article. I'll try to note it.
