Malicious Tones

December 1, 2010

JOHN 5—THE FORMER MARILYN MANSON, AND CURRENT Rob Zombie sideman—is a viciously talented burner who delivers a wicked hybrid of country and metal styles on his solo albums (his latest release is The Art of Malice). Here is a high-cost/low-cost comparison that represents some of the gear John 5 has been using (and abusing) since his 2004 Guitar Player cover story. (All prices are street.)
