BILLY CORGAN Says “Paint Color Actually Changes The Sound Of A Guitar”

Guitar Center recently put out this interview with Billy Corgan of legendary rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. In the video, Corgan goes through his guitars that he uses both live and in the studio, as well as discusses his thoughts on things like the color of the guitar affecting the tone. That might sound a little “out there”, but he’s a famous rock star, so what do I know. Jeff Schroeder and Jimmy Chamberlin from TSP were also interviewed by Guitar Center, and you can check those videos out below to learn more about their styles and processes.

The Smashing Pumpkins are gearing up for their Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour in Europe. You can find dates and details on their website here.
