GALLERY: Lollapalooza 2015

Three days of guitar highlights from Chicago’s world-renowned festival.


Gary Clark Jr.
While recently honored with his own Epiphone Casino signature model—and he did play it the most during his Lolla set—Clark busted out two new 6-strings for his return to Chicago’s Grant Park. The 2013 SG was a gift from the Foo Fighters’ Pat Smear, who gave it to him during the filming of the Austin episode for Sonic Highways. According to Clark’s tech, “It’s Clark’s first live guitar with humbuckers, which has given the guitar slinger a harder sound than his typical P-90-equipped guitars, but he loves them!” He also used a white 2000s Fender Custom Shop Strat for soul-fused numbers like “Hold On” on his upcoming album The Story of Sonny Boy Slim.
