The following is a guest post by Jack Broughan. If you are interested in guest posting, please contact me!

Fugazi has always been a band characterised by strong principals, but the bands guitar sound has been governed strongly by the “keep it simple” ethos. Attempting to achieve much with very little equipment, Fugazi seek to gain a stronger connection with their music without being saddled down by excess gear.

Guy:
A Sunburst Rickenbacker 330 with RIC HB1 humbuckers.
A Black Rickenbacker 330 with RIC HB1 humbuckers.

Ian:
