WATCH/THE SCRIPT’S MARK SHEEHAN DISCUSS GIBSON’S G FORCE

Posted in Blog, Electric Guitars, Gear    //    Post Date - February 27, 2015

Formed in 2001, Irish band The Script have built up a massive international following and have made a habit of taking out huge awards at major music events such as The Brits and World Music Awards. Normally playing stadiums, The Script played a Sony fan event at The Forum, London late last year. Our friends at Gibson guitars filmed the show and took the opportunity to talk backstage with Mark Sheehan (guitar player and backing vox) and his tech Colin about using the Gibson 2015 Les Paul Standard (and G FORCE™ auto tuning system) on tour and in the studio.
