Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee are featured in the June issue of Premier Guitar magazine for a two page photo spread in the Opening Notes section which you can check out online at this link. The photo is taken from Rush's April 17th show in Auburn Hills and is accompanied by a caption with a brief description of Alex and Geddy's equipment. Here's the writeup:

Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee open the show with Spirit of Radio just outside of Detroit on their Time Machine tour, on which the trio is playing Moving Pictures in its entirety-and much more. Lifeson is shown with his all-stock Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess signature model in Royal Crimson. It's outfitted with Gibson high-output humbuckers, series/parallel switching, a Floyd Rose tremolo with piezo-equipped GraphTech Ghost saddles, and two outputs for a multitude of blending options. Lee does more than hold the low-end with his black Fender Custom Shop Jazz bass, which features the alchemical symbol for amalgamation on the pickguard. Lee signed on with Orange Amplifiers last summer and is now using two AD200 heads routed through two OBC 410 cabs.

Thanks to Power Windows for the heads up.
