HEART’s NANCY WILSON Is Selling Off A Bunch Of Her Gear

Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson is selling off a handful of gear used on hits like “Barracuda” and “Crazy On You.” So if you’ve ever wanted to nail those galloping riffs, this might be the time to make a proper investment. The Official Nancy Wilson of Heart Reverb Shop will open on October 19 and will feature Wilson’s late ’60s Gibson SG alongside a handful of other classics like:

  • A 1957 Fender Stratocaster that’s been on stages around the world. “It’s got all the good dirt in the sound of it from the ‘50s,” said Wilson. “There’s something about the older models that have that dirty sound. It’s because they’re all grown up and are big characters.”
  • A Late 70’s David Petschulat mini Les Paul, which is only one of several made according to Wilson. “It’s very teeny tiny. It was on stage with me, and Howard Lee has had one too. It’s also the star of the cover of Heart’s album Greatest Hits Live.”
  • A 1980s Paul Reed Smith 12-string prototype with a dragon inlay that Wilson claims is one-of-a-kind. “This is one of the coolest guitars I’ve ever owned,” she said. “It came with me all over the [latest] Heart Tour. I played the first song of the tour of this guitar, ‘Rockin’ Heaven Down.’”
  • A Duncan Quattro from the mid ‘80s that accompanied Wilson during many stadium shows. “During certain songs it was on a stand that I played along with a keyboard part,” she said. “On other songs, it was the all-purpose dive-bombing ‘80s-style guitar.”
  • A TV Jones Spectrasonic with a red and white finish with a Bigsby vibrato that, according to Wilson, was also often used to play “Barracuda” live frequently.
