Gilbert captures Bob Dylan's sound by replicating Dylan's guitar and vocal styles, and with his haunting harmonica work. In the Opening Acoustic Set, he completely captures Dylan's solo sound by playing Hohner Marine Band harmonicas, and a 1929 Gibson Nick Lucas Special Brazilian Rosewood concert guitar - custom designed as a reissue for Gilbert by Gibson master luthier Ren Ferguson at Gibson Guitars in Bozeman, Montana. For the electric set, Gilbert plays a 1962 Black Fender Stratocaster reissue with Rosewood fingerboard, identical to the electric guitar Dylan performed with in 1966, as well as a black Washburn EA26 which Dylan performed with throughout the 80's.
