For use on acoustic songs he relies on two 2008 Gibson J-45 Acoustic Guitars with B-Band pickup systems.

Gibbard released his debut solo album, Former Lives, in 2012, and a collaborative studio album, One Fast Move or I'm Gone (2009), with Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt's Jay Farrar.

While performing guitar in the band Pinwheel, Gibbard recorded a demo cassette under the moniker Death Cab for Cutie, titled You Can Play These Songs with Chords (1997).

Turned out the special guest was Husker Du songwriter and Gibbard’s self-proclaimed hero, Bob Mould, who stole the spotlight for a few minutes for a duet of Sugar’s “If I Can’t Change Your Mind.” The only times I tuned out were during “Grapevine Fires” and “The Ice Is Getting Thinner” from 2008’s Narrow Stairs, though not surprisingly: those songs are hard to follow on record, and even harder to follow when accompanied by just an acoustic guitar.

Gibbard closed the set with an acoustic version of his one-off side project’s electro-pop hit “Such Great Heights,” which ironically had more in common with Iron & Wine’s sleepy version from back when Zach Braff met Natalie Portman. Honorable Mention: Going back in Noise Pop time, another notable set from this year’s festival was local pop band AB & The Sea opening for Ted Leo at Bottom of the Hill.

He stated, "I would just feel so much pride for my state if we could pass it by a popular vote and show the rest of the country that this is the direction we are going in." As of May 2015, Gibbard tours with four modified 1970s Fender Mustang guitars.

Additionally he uses two custom-built Acme Silvertone amplifier heads.

Another year of Noise Pop ended Sunday night at the Great American Music Hall with more of a polite indie rock bow than the requisite bang, as members of Death Cab For Cutie, Rogue Wave, Husker Du and The Album Leaf all took the stage at various times to play to a dedicated, capacity crowd.

Rogue Wave’s Zach Rogue kicked things off, totally humbled that headliner Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab For Cutie) had asked him to take the opening slot.

He stated that when his lesbian sister got married, it was "the most beautiful thing" he had ever seen.
