Two Mark V's and an Axe-Fx. Very cool interesting small rig.

It's interesting that he decided to go with this rig, which is from his B rig, for this tour. All the rest of his gear, like his Mark V stacks on stage and his guitars are all from his A rig, so I'm surprised he didn't stick with his 3 Mark V's and all that TC Electronic stuff. I guess he really loves the Axe FX.

Yup, only for effects. He had this rig put together since they played the same set every night, only like 6 songs, so he didnt need to lug around that massive rig when it wasnt needed.
