Roberto Trujillo is a bassist who played in Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves, Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne's band before joining Metallica in 2003. Nice resume!

Although at times Trujillo has been known to use a pick, he prefers to use his fingers, like the early Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, but unlike Trujillo's predecessor Jason Newsted (who used a pick almost exclusively). He is also a very skilled slap bass player, as ably demonstrated in his work for Suicidal Tendencies, and particularly Infectious Grooves, where he used the technique extensively.

Let's look at what gear and equipment has been seen in Robert Trujillo's Bass Rig.
