2018 - Dead & Company
Very simple and beautiful sounding rig this year. I love it!
For Hartford and forward, John used 3x Fender Deluxe Reverbs. All of them were serviced by Alessandro. Two (on the left) are vintage Deluxe Reverbs with JBL D120's. The one on the far right is the Alessandro re-wired Fender Reissue. This means that Alessandro takes a brand new deluxe, and puts all new guts inside. Maybe a little magic too.

John has been going back and forth between his Super Eagle real F-hole and "fake" F-hole. For the Hartford show, he used the real F-Hole with the wide "flame" top right above the middle pickup. He alternated between the Super Eagle and a custom Silver PRS 594. When I was going through my photos I noticed that the pickups on the 594 actually have 58/15JM etched on them which theoretically means they have the same pickups as the Super Eagle! Honestly, the tone is amazing from that 594 for bluesy songs.
