A Perfect Circle star 'takes several Les Pauls with him when playing live'
A Perfect Circle star Billy Howerdel has explained he relies on an arsenal of Les Paul guitars when playing live.
Speaking to the Gibson Lifestyle website, the musician revealed he usually brings four models with him - a main one, an open tuning version and a backup for each of these.
He said that two of the instruments in particular have plenty of history attached to them, as they were given to him by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor.
"I was Trent's guitar tech for the Downward Spiral Tour in 94 and 95, and at the end of the tour, he was gracious enough to let me walk away with some tattered, broken guitars that I was used to fixing anyway, so I took them home and fixed them," Howerdel stated.
The star explained that when it comes to recording new music, he is generally reliant on a Les Paul or his Gibson ES-175.
A Perfect Circle are set to go on a summer tour of North America, with dates planned in cities including Portland, Detroit, Toronto, New York, Washington DC and Los Angeles.
The final show will be in Pittsburgh on August 9th.
