Show & Tell is where we get artists to tell us about a piece of gear that they cherish and use as a part of their live or studio setup. This month we chat to Liam Fowler, guitarist for Pridelands.
What piece of equipment do you have to show us today?
My Jackson B7 Deluxe guitar.
How did you come across this particular item?
I was originally introduced to them a few years ago when I saw Josh from Northlane had started posting about his and always loved the look of them, but then early last year I got the opportunity to play one and instantly fell in love.
What is it that you like about it so much?
To be honest, almost everything (no locking tuners is a tad annoying but hey, that’s no biggie). The main thing I like about it is the neck. I was never usually a fan of relatively thick necks, but this just feels so smooth to play. The weight balance of the guitar itself makes it very comfortable to play as well.
How do you use it and how has it shaped the way you write music?
I guess I use it solely for my band Pridelands at the moment, but since getting it I’ve been very inspired in messing around with a few different styles I stopped dabbling in a while ago.
Tell us a little about what you have coming up?
In July my band is playing the Changes Showcase for UNFD with Void of Vision and The Beautiful Monument, and shortly after that we’re joining our good friends in Polaris and Justice For the Damned for a small regional run through Tasmania and Victoria as part of the Polaris - Dusk To Day tour.
Pridelands’ new EP Any Colour You Desire is out now. You can catch them on tour in July.
