We got a request in for John Rzeznik's guitar gear, and the requester pointed us to a link with info, but it seemed to be at least 9 years old. So, with much research I put together a set of links that have tidbits of info about what John uses. I don't feel comfortable enough yet to post it on the main site yet, as there are many holes missing. If anyone can fill in info, please do (or if you happen to know who John's current guitar tech is).

This just might be one of the best listings of John's gear anyplace :)
