KAMCHATKA’s Thomas Andersson Talks About His Signature Ibanez “Beard Bender”

Thomas Andersson is the whiz guitarist behind the Swedish blues rock band Kamchatka. It’s a band named after my favorite territory to scream out while playing long games of Risk (PREPARE TO DEFEND KAMCHATKA :rolls battle dice:) so naturally I’m on board. We actually did a Rigged feature on him last year and got the lowdown on his gear, which included a bit about his signature Ibanez “Beard Bender” guitar.

Well, today Kamchatka are rolling out their new single, “Human Dynamo“, and in honor of that, Thomas was kind enough to talk a bit about his guitar for us, as well as demonstrate some licks from the aforementioned single (through what appears to be a built-in wall guitar amp? Is that a thing that Swedish houses have? No wonder they’re so good at guitar…).
