Mikael Åkerfeldt is a Swedish musician, best known as the current lead singer, lead guitar player and songwriter of progressive metal band Opeth, and lead singer of death metal band Bloodbath.

One most excellent thing is that Åkerfeldt is said to be the basis for the character Toki Wartooth from the popular cartoon Metalocalypse!

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in Akerfeldt's guitar rig.
