David Torn at the Fretboard Journal

Composer, improviser, guitarist and producer David Torn stopped by our offices on May 18, 2015. Loaded with all the gear from his Seattle gig the night prior – his pink Ronin Mirari guitar with the large gold foils (notice Torn’s trademark Interruptulator in the pickguard); numerous pedals and effects; and a borrowed Bogner Goldfinger 69 and Fryette Sig:X amplifier – Torn set to work improvising.

We’ll post a much more comprehensive look at Torn’s gear and career in the near future here and in our magazine, but we couldn’t resist posting this video in the meantime.

Don’t forget to check out Torn’s 2015 album on ECM, only sky.
