Relive all the guitar highlights from one of the longest-running U.S. festivals that celebrated its silver anniversary with sun, fun, and tunes.
Third Eye Blind’s Kryz Reid
The band’s lead guitarist is a huge Star Wars fan and so he names all his guitars after characters from the movies. (Get the full scoop on his guitar collection in our Rig Rundown with him.) “Vadar” is a 1979 Gibson The Paul, which was the first good guitar Reid bought. The guitar sports a Seymour Duncan Antiquity humbucker in the neck position and an Alnico II at the bridge. Reid uses “Vadar” for “Graduate,” “The Background,” “Can You Take Me,” and anything using open-D tuning (D–A–D–F#–A–D).
