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

Bloc Party’s Russell Lissack

For the opening number “Only He Can Heal Me,” the lead guitarist grabbed his 2000s Fender Telecaster Custom that’s completely stock aside from the plastic toy mounted under the pickguard —he’s engaging it with his right hand in the photo—that he uses for some weird, spacey noises that’s with mixed with ambient delays during the song’s choruses and outro. Check out the Rig Rundown with Russell where he shows off his huge pedalboard and even fires up the toy.

Bogner's beastliest amp is made miniature—and still slays.

Excellent sounds in a portable and very affordably priced package.

A footswitchable clean channel and onboard reverb would make it perfect.
