Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters Guitar Rig and Equipment

Dave Grohl Gibson ES335 Guitar

Dave Grohl is a Rock N Roll superstar.  As the primary songwriter in the Foo Fighters, former drummer for Nirvana and the current drummer for Them Crooked Vultures, he has also played with Probot, Late! and Queens of the Stoneage.  Gibson has just come out with the new DG-335 Dave Grohl Signature guitar shown above.

Dave’s equipment list has changed over the years and is changing tour after tour.  Below are some of the most common pieces that I have spotted over the last 10 years of tours.  One other great thing about seeing Foo Fighters live is their choice of cover songs, if you haven’t seen them cover Rick Astley’s “Never gonna give you up” you can see it here..
