Ben Bruce is the lead guitarist in the chart-topping metalcore band Asking Alexandria. He has played on Jimmy Kimmel Live and co-writes all of Asking Alexandria's songs. Ben likes to keep the gear he uses simple, by plugging straight into his amp most of the time.

Here's some of the gear and equipment that Ben has been seen using in his guitar rig.
