On October 8, 2014, Premier Guitar met with Alex Rosamilia and his tech Brad Clifford before The Gaslight Anthem’s show at Marathon Music in Nashville. Rosamilia took PG through his rack of touring vintage guitars and revealed how he tailors his tone with a wet/ dry amp combination.

Alex Rosamilia travels with the kind of vintage guitars a less brave musician would leave at home in a vault. His current No. 1 is a walnut-brown 1970 Gibson SG with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity humbucker in the bridge.

No. 2 is a beautiful Bigsby-equipped 1966 Gibson ES-355 in dark cherry. The guitar has had a neck break and a bridge swap but other than that, remains completely stock.

No. 3 is a loved and slightly abused all-stock 1981 silverburst Gibson Les Paul Custom.

When Rosamilia wants something a bit unusual, he goes with his 1983 BC Rich Bich in cherry burst.
