Mike Einziger is the multi-instrumentalist, co-writer and guitarist of the alternative rock band Incubus, in addition to his own side project band, Time Lapse Consortium. Instruments that he has played on Incubus records include guitar, piano, Mellotron, pipa, analog synthesizers, tape samplers, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and more. He's also played a Jerry Jones Guitars Master Sitar on "Nowhere Fast" from the Make Yourself album (live, he just plays the sitar part with his guitar), and a Pipa on "Aqueous Transmission". Mike also plays electric piano on songs like "Here In My Room" and has played piano on live versions of "Drive."

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in the Incubus guitar player's Guitar Rig.
