Relive all the guitar highlights from one of the longest-running U.S. festivals that celebrated its silver anniversary with sun, fun, and tunes.
The 1975’s Adam Hann
For “Love Me,” Hann used a Music Man John Petrucci model that his parents gave him when he was a teenager. “It’s got these two humbuckers in it,” he says, “but the out-of-phase position has both coils split, so you get like a single-coil out-of-phase on it. It’s this horrible maroon color and when it came to doing it live, the color was so bad that we ended up getting this white vinyl that we cut out and painstakingly stuck over the entire guitar. We then covered up the hardware with tape and threw a load of multicolored paint over it. Now it’s got this weird Jackson Pollock-esque look to it.”
