The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Josh Klinghoffer barres his 2011 Gretsch White Penguin while closing out the first weekend of Coachella during a furious desert sandstorm. His Penguin is mostly stock other than having the bridge pinned, adding Dunlop Straploks, and swapping out the DynaSonics with a pair of TV Jones T-Armonds. Klinghoffer only uses the Gretsch for a couple of songs live, but he found the original pickups to be a little muddy through his rig, which is optimized for Teles and Strats. —Photo by Lindsey Best
