Relive all the guitar highlights from one of the longest-running U.S. festivals that celebrated its silver anniversary with sun, fun, and tunes.

Kurt Vile

The first instrument Vile connected with was the banjo—and he still uses it in the band’s music as seen on the right for “I’m an Outlaw” where he used a Gold Tone model—but eventually fell in love with two 1964 Fender Jaguars. During an earlier interview with PG, Vile explained his need to have dual ’64s: “I bought it in 2011 when I was on tour. I really focused on getting familiar with it, so much so that I just bought another ’64 Jaguar for the road.” One typically is tuned to standard or down a half-step while the other could be in any number of Vile’s own creative open tunings.
