Dandy Warhols rocker speaks about Fender Telecaster rotation
Pete Holmstrom, a guitarist for the Dandy Warhols, has revealed he owns several Fender guitars.
Holmstrom said he has a system of rotation for his guitars, occasionally selecting a certain instrument when he wants to create a specific sound.
"I tend to have guitars set up in different tunings so if there is a certain tuning that I'm using, then I'll gravitate to that guitar," he added.
The star explained he has one of his Fender Telecasters specially set up with really heavy strings so he can use it when playing de-tuned songs.
He is likely to be taking his guitars on the road with him next month, as the Dandy Warhols are heading out on a tour of Canada and the US in December.
