"When Jewel signed with Atlantic Records in 1993, she picked up a Taylor 912-C that was her steady companion for several years, along with an intricately decorated custom Ferrington given as a gift from a boyfriend. Since then, Jewel’s relationship with the southern California guitar company has deepened, as she’s acquired a whole rack of Taylors, including a 420-PF (pao ferro), 512, 612-C, 814-C, custom 915, and PS10 as well as her own signature model, built as a limited edition in 2000.

Jewel’s stage acoustic guitars are wired with Fishman Matrix pickups, run direct with no external preamp or effects. At band gigs, she supplements the Taylors with a Stratocaster, a Paul Reed Smith, three Telecasters, and two Gibson Howard Roberts, plugged into a Matchless DC30 amp.

All of Jewel’s guitars are strung with D’Addario mediums, and she plays either with her fingers (often combining strumming and fingerpicking) or a heavy pick."
