Demi Lovato Played a Super Metal-Like Guitar on ‘Fallon’

Demi Lovato rocked a heavy metal– looking at the guitar The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week. The pop star who turns to rock on HOLY FVCK — the album is out Friday (August 19) — works as The Tonight Show guest host through Thursday (18 Aug.).

On Tuesday’s (August 16) show, Lovato and her band — it now includes earlier Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss – played the song “Fabric” from the insert. Can you spot the electric guitar Lovato is swinging during the performance?

See pictures and video at the bottom of this post.

While any markings on the all-black ax head are obscured, the shape is unmistakably an Ibanez X-series. Especially the model once known as Xiphos, now sold as IronLabel XPTB620 (6-string) and XPTB720 (7-string).

Fallon must have been impressed with the instrument. Because at the next show (Aug. 17), he gave Lovato a red Gibson Explorer for their 30th birthday that Aug. 20. The Explorer is another extreme looking guitar often associated with rock and metal.

And Lovato’s rock bona fides are clear. In 2020 they have contributed to a version of All Time Low‘Patterns’. Before that they released one Travis Barker-assisted”emo version” of one of their pop songs. And who’s listening, Lovato’s love of metalcore runs deep.
