True, but artists do compensate. Nicko said that H has back problems, so I think he wouldn't risk overloading it with a 12/6 doubleneck... Probably the reason why it was not taken along for COTD in 2016.
I agree with him. I own a 2010 LP Traditional and a Jackson AS SDX. Guess which one is my main guitar...
With a good set of pickups and good setup, a lot of lower range guitars outperform most of the higher range ones.
Adrian and Janick's gear on Senjutsu, as per Total Guitar Magazine interview:
2016 Green Jackson Prototype with SD JB; main guitar
2017 Black Gibson Les Paul Standard; "On some of it" (one is probably The Time Machine, since it's in drop D)
Red Jackson Double neck 12/6 "Weights...
Black strat was the main guitar. It's first on the rack and was probably used most...
-*missing* Black Custom shop replica of his 1964 Strat (main guitar), seen on the picture of Nicko's kit.
-White 1960's Stratocaster reissue from 90's
-Cream Custom shop replica of his...
