KISS is out on tour right now with Def Leppard, and they've changed up their gear for the new tour.

Check out Premier Guitar's visit with Tommy Thayer, and Gene Simmons' and Paul Stanley's guitar techs, as they talk about the new guitars, amps, effects and more for the tour.

Being a big Les Paul fan, I like Tommy's gear part, especially since he actually came out to go through them, but I'm just not a sparkly finish kind of guy.

You know Metalhead Ned will be watching this video for the next few days.  Why?  Check out why here.
