Fredrik Thordendal is the lead guitarist and a founding member of the Swedish metal band Meshuggah. Thordendal also contributes to the songwriting for Meshuggah, as well as providing backing vocals in live performances.

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in the Meshuggah guitar player Fredrik Thordendal's guitar rig. His rig is pretty basic live without too much gear in the way. It appears he uses Line 6 heads direct into the PA (no cabinets).
