Composer/producer/bassist Michael League and guitarist Mark Lettieri of Grammy-winning jazz-fusion group met PG before their slamming, sold-out show at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works and took us through their hard-grooving gear.
Michael League has a cache of vintage and modern basses at home, but for touring, he gets it done with his stock 1959 Fender Precision. League strings the P with Dunlop Medium Flatwound strings.
Mark Lettieri’s main guitar is a Don Grosh NOS Retro model that features a swamp ash body, maple neck, Grosh ‘60s Fat single-coils and a Small Block 327 humbucker. The Grosh is strung with Dunlop nickel-wound strings (.0095–.044) and plucked with heavy Dunlop celluloid picks.
