When Fear Factory reformed in 2003, they did so without their original guitarist Dino Cazares. Stepping in to fill the void, was former bassist Christian Olde Wolbers.
Wolbers, who has an endorsement deal with Jackson guitars, naturally plays a range of Jackson 7-string guitars, including Jackson USA Custom Shop Christian Olde Wolbers 7-String models, Jackson Christian Olde Wolbers Signature 7 string Dinky Archtop's, Jackson Custom Shop 7-String's, Jackson Custom Shop King V 7-string and a Jackson Silverburst USA Custom Shop model with tremelo.

Wolbers credits his guitar set up to Stephen Carpenter, who helped him get rid of the 'spider web' cabling issues, by introducing him to Bob Bradshaw, who put together his rig using CAE controllers and switchers, a CAE R5-10 Controller and CAE Custom Switcher/Interface.
