Worship Guitar Gear // Electric Guitar Rig: Brady Neely



1997 Vox AC30/6TBX

This is probably one of the best amps I’ve played. Its the Korg Era AC30 with the Alnico Blues in it. It takes all of my pedals like it’s nothing, and is consistent with any guitar I throw at it. I run it through the Hi-Gain Brilliant channel.


60th Anniversary Fender American Telecaster:

This is ‘Blondie’. My go-to, ole-faithful, tried and true, etc etc that I’ll never get rid of. It’s starting to get beat up and worn in from it’s consistent use. I’ve put an Emerson Custom Tele assembly in it, as well as some Riggio Custom Guitars ‘Blackguard’ pickups. Very warm, and punchy while still retaining the classic Tele twang. This thing sounds incredible with anything, I swear.


2014 Gretsch Double-Cutaway White Falcon:

Absolutely in love with this guitar. Everyone has the normal Falcon, so I figured Id be different and get the double cutaway. It has a very dark, round tone. Really unique sounding. Don’t see myself getting rid of this guy anytime soon.



This is what I’m using at the moment. Everything is constantly changing in and out, but I think I’ve found what I like, and I’m sticking to it! (Don’t hold me to that…)

It’s all wired up onto a Brady Cases 28X18 Flatboard.


Boss TU-3: It tunes.

JHS DynaRoss: Really open sounding, and doesn’t squash your tone much at all, just adds some sustain. Its left on all the time.

EHX Micro POG: One of my favorite pedals on my board. I probably overuse it, but who doesn’t? I use it for mostly the octave-up setting for solos or little filler-bits. (Is that even a word?)

Ibanez Ts9: This is one of the first pedals I ever used, and I’ve loved it ever since. It’s an older model, and it has a cool history.

JHS Superbolt: JHS hit it out of the park with this one. Its a really clean/bright OD that can easily jump into the fuzz territory if you need it to. I keep it on about 95% of the time.

Divided By 13 Joyride: I use this as a solo boost or to add a little more girth to my tone for big parts of songs. The EQ makes it a winner for me, as most boost pedals either add too much Bass or too much Treble to my ears.

Cusack Tap-A-Whirl: Really cool tap tremolo. I keep it mostly on the 1st setting and adjust the depth as I see fit.

Ernie Ball VP Jr: The worship standard. No mods done to it.

Strymon Brigadier: Used for swells, oscillation, vibrato, or to add a tail to the end of a song.

Strymon Timeline: Probably my favorite delay pedal ever. EVER. The magic happens when you run it in stereo. Praises.

Strymon BigSky: Ditched the RV5 and got this bad boy instead. I use it for the Plate, Hall, Room and Bloom setting. Again, the magic happens in stereo. I run stereo out of it into 2 Radial SGI Boxes out to my amps.

Disaster Areas DMC-2: This switches the banks on my Timeline.

It’s all wired up with soldered cables (Mogami 2319, Switchcraft Plugs) and powered by the two PP2+.

  1. Can you talk about what you are trying to get out of the Dyna Comp? I`m a fairly new guitarist and I am trying to figure how to make it useable.

  2. Hey Joe. I’ve since swapped the Dyna Comp for a Walrus Audio Deep Six. The Dyna Comp was mostly kept on all the time to tighten things up a bit. However, I noticed it added gain to my signal, so I opted for the Deep Six. Amazing compressor in my opinion.

  3. Hey Brady, is that flat board from Brady Cases? What size is it?

  4. Thanks Brady. I’m trying to decide between a flatboard like yours and a Pedaltrain. I get the appeal of routing cables underneath the Pedaltrain boards, but the rails being spaced so far apart really limit where and how many pedals you can actually place on one. Plus, they cost about 2-3 times a similarly sized flatboard. What do you think? What do you like/dislike about the flatboard from Brady Cases?

    • I went from a PT3 to a flat board for the same reasons. I really like the flat board just because of the fact that I can lay it out how I want and I can easily swap anything out. The rails really limited how you could run the cables, etc. I don’t really have any complaints about my new board from them (i switched from a velcro top to the normal hardtop) My only complaint would be that the ‘velcro top’ flat boards that they make don’t let your pedals stick as well as a hardtop board with normal velcro of your choice. And now, I can run cable tie bases on the board and really clean everything up. Plus, I have my name on the case, which is a huge winner for me. 🙂 Can’t go wrong with them at all. Super solid boards that’ll last you a long time!

    I am curious about something. How did Gretsch guitars become so prominent In modern worship music (not hating I have one myself and love it though it’s getting modded to be close to what you have)? I believe the Tele is likely the most used guitar in modern worship but I think Gretsch is well up on the list. Any insights? Hillsong perhaps?
