Esmé Patterson: Rig Rundown

Article and photos:

Soulful singer/songwriter Esmé Patterson squeezed in a quick interview with PG’s John Bohlinger just minutes before her show in Nashville. Armed with a two-dollar pedalboard and “Cruella,” Patterson hits the road hard to promote her latest album, 'We Were Wild.'

Esmé’s manager decided it was time for her to step up to a more professional axe and he gave her this ESP Ron Wood signature model. Due to the black and white color scheme, she dubbed this guitar “Cruella” (du Vil—after the villain in 101 Dalmatians) and it has become her No. 1.

The backup guitar is a Squier Strat with a matching red headstock purchased for $100 in Portland at Trade Up Music.
