He doesn't have a signature guitar...he's got quite a few guitars! Lots of Strats and Teles Here are a few of his main guitars:

Fender Strats ('55, '61, and '62)
Fender Telecaster ('63)
Gretsch White Falcon ('55)
Gibson Les Paul Custom ('69)
Martin O-15

That link has pretty much every guitar he's every been seen playing.


I recently bought a Fender American Vintage '62 Strat. Through an EL34-powered amp, it nails his Strat tones. I just uploaded a cover of Wet Sand today...check it out if you want to hear how it sounds!

He still has his most known ones like the White Falcon, his 62, 61 and 55 Strats, his 63 and 65 Teles. Actually, I don't think he lost many guitars to his addiction at all.

He bought his white falcon after his drug addiction, for a cool 30k. All/most the guitars before his addiction were pawned off.
As horrible as that is, i can't help but imagine that the rebuilding of his guitar collection must have been an awesome few years.

EDIT: Frusciante playing an RG..mind=blown.

that would be amazing

althoughi think the MMs are based off of fender 60s pickups so im not sure how much difference there would be

jesus he really likes strats....or guitars from 1962.

200 watt marshall? christ.

and that 2006 era pedal board is just silly. silly. i personally would forget about 25% of what was on that damn thing. and Moog effects? not cheap. wonder how many thousands of dollars his board costs.
