It’s festival season, and the Horizon ($99 street) has become my go-to chromatic tuner for outdoor stages because it’s “pedalboard friendly” (i.e.— small) but offers a huge horizontal screen. So far, no amount of sunlight has been able to completely obliterate the dazzling high-definition red (out of tune) and green (in tune) hues that illuminate the entire display. Until someone makes tiny umbrellas to shade pedal tuners, that’s a massive benefit for summer shows. The Horizon’s metal chassis seems indestructible, it’s true bypass, and you can power other pedals with its DC Out jack. A winner for all seasons!
High above the Nashville skyline, guitar slinger Johnny Hiland met with PG’s John Bohlinger for a pre-show Rig Rundown. Hiland showed off a diverse cache of 6-strings, two cool amps and a larger—yet practical—board that makes for a killer setup for both the studio and live gigs.
Hiland’s current No. 1 is his 1998 Music Man Axis Sport loaded with his signature Six Shooter pickups from Electric City Pickups and custom wiring harness from Martin Six String Customs.
This is Hiland’s 2010 Music Man Silhouette that also features the Six Shooter pickups and custom wiring harness. Between the middle and neck pickups sits a RunBarr by Easy Roll Guitar Methods. It acts as a pickguard in order to help your picking technique on speed picking and sweep arpeggios. Each of Hiland’s guitars are strung with Elixir Nanoweb (.009–.042) strings.
