Peter Frampton has always been a gear head. After all, he not only helped popularize the talk box but also started his own line of Framptone effects and accessories. He even adopted the AxCent self-tuning system for guitars and recently headed up a crowd-funding campaign to help bring an affordable version of the system to users everywhere.
In the video below, presented by Musician’s Friend, Frampton walks us through his gear, from his guitars—including his Gibson Peter Frampton Signature Les Paul, Custom 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue and ES-335—to his rig, with its rack of effects. He also talks about his guitar influences and his time in Humble Pie, where he forged his signature style before launching his acclaimed solo career.
