Part I: The SoloDallas Schaffer Replica

When the Guns N' Roses roadshow set up at Oakland, California's Oracle Arena on November 21, 2017, guitarist Richard Fortus was amazingly generous enough to go through his rig for Guitar Player readers.

Fortus is a super tone freak, and he takes the utmost care to ensure that every single piece of his gear has the sonic power to bring Guns N' Roses' songs to life. As you'll see and hear, his knowledge of, and commitment to the science of sound is staggering. 

Here, in Part One, Fortus details the subtle but essential magic of his SoloDallas Schaffer Replica. Parts Two and Three will deal with his guitars, amps, and effects. Look for those chapters soon!
