Premier Guitar hung with Tommy Henriksen, Ryan Roxie and Nita Strauss of the Alice Cooper band during the Nashville stop on their 2014 tour with Mötley Crüe. This team of elite ax wielders stay true to the classic rock tone that Cooper’s band helped establish in the late ’60s while incorporating modern shred.
Ryan Roxie's recipe for tone has always included a Les Paul & Marshall. His current #1 guitar is his completely stock 2014 Gibson Les Paul, nicknamed “Peace”, with Gibson’s proprietary self-tuning system.
When a cleaner tone is needed, Roxie reaches for a 2012 Gibson ES-335. Since Roxie doesn’t use channel switching or drive pedals, he moves to the neck pickup—which is roughly half the volume than his bridge pickup.
The trio of Gibsons is rounded out with a 2007 Flying V—relic'd by Rock N' Roll Relics—loaded with three Gibson humbuckers. All of Roxie’s guitars are strung with Gibson Brite Wires .010-.046.
