Tom Morello’s Ibanez Artstar Custom

This guitar was custom-built for Morello. It features a two-tone red and black finish and it has a couple of built-in effects including echo, distortion, and wah.

Tom used this guitar live during the RATM era on the song “Guerrilla Radio”, and later on for Cypress Hill’s song “Rise Up”.
