Does anyone know what rig Leonard uses on tour, I could see he uses a Godin guitar, I wonder what strings and amplifier he uses?

You may want to try asking that question on the website of Leif Bodnarchuk http://leifb73.com/
He is the guitar technician for the band.

Leif is not Leonard's guitar tech. Doubt very much if this type of info would be made public.

Ok, then do you know who is? I thought Leif was the guitar tech for the entire band but you could be right.

I donĀ“t think equipment is such a big secret.
Sometimes it is published in guitar or other music magazines as part of an interview.
Also, musicians are often endorsed by instrument and equipment manufacturers and then this information is often used for advertising.
From personal experience, I exchanged some email with Mitch Watkins asking him about his guitar and amps and the explained to me exactly what I wanted to know.

Leif is Mitch's tech. However, I'm sure he would be willing and able to answer some basic questions re Leonard's guitars etc (as, I'm sure could some forum members). Leif has opened up a dialogue with the public via his blog and he is very responsive so I say go for it. What have you got to lose?

Mickey Sullivan used to be Leonard and Javier's guitar tech.
Leonard used to use a Godin Multiac guitar and an SWR amp.
I'm not sure if this information is still current.
