Jeff Buckley had a black Les Paul that was one of his favorite guitars, but he (and Michael Tighe) would very often play Fender Telecasters. Both players ran biamped into Fender Vibroverbs and Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier combos. Buckley used an Alesis Quadraverb for shimmering, church-like textures.13

Other guitars that Jeff toured with include a red Rickenbacker, and a miked Gibson acoustic guitar.

In one case, what appeared to be a precious piece of Jeff's gear, really wasn't his own. The cream-colored Fender Telecaster that Jeff often used was borrowed from a St. Ann's Arts staff member in 1992. The Telecaster was returned to the staff member the night of the public memorial, August 1, 1997.
