Rise Against bassist Joe Principe has opened up an official Reverb shop, selling some of the gear used across his career in the band.
Included in the shop are many Fender Precision basses, which Joe seems to be a fan of. Alongside these is a made-in-Japan Gretsch G6128B Thunder Jet bass, as well as a sizable collection of bass amps and cabinets.

Rise Against began their career in 1999, when Principe formed the band alongside guitarist Dan Wleklinski. However, a volatile lineup meant that their debut studio effort Siren Song of the Counter-Culture wouldn’t be recorded until 2004. While it saw them establish a strong fanbase quickly, it was their 2008 LP Appeal to Reason that cemented the band as an international success. Rise Against’s most recent album is The Ghost Note Symphonies, Vol.1, consisting of orchestrally and acoustically reworked songs from the band’s back-catalogue.
The gear on sale was used both on tour and on Rise Against LPs The Sufferer & The Witness, Endgame and Siren Song of the Counter-Culture.
Principe isn’t the only notable musician to put gear up for sale on the Reverb marketplace – Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently listed a large haul of guitars, most of which were bought by a single buyer.
